We stopped by at this wonderfully design cafe, bar & restaurant after taking a stroll in Esplanadi. We just had coffees and sit around on the terrace while enjoying Helsinki vibe. Too bad we already had lunch since the food looks inviting.

The food served in this traditional Finnish restaurant is excellent, although expensive. I would highly recommend it although be careful the restaurant is one of the very expensive restaurant in Helsinki.

Enjoyed their wine and mushroom soup, although we had to wait a long while to be seated. Their prices aren't bad either. Great service.
