Traditional restaurant and food is always great here. In addition you get a short boat trip since this is an island restaurant. So enjoy the scenery!

We had a dinner here in June. The sun was slowly setting over Helsinki as we proceeded through the delicious 5 course dinner. Staff was friendly and the food was delicious

You need to take a ferry to go there (3 minutes from the mainland, every 20-30 min). Excellent service also in English. Take 5 courses chef menu with wine and enjoy! Built in 1900, very beatiful and have been restaurant ever since.

This charming restaurant is located a stonethrow away from Helsinki center (5 min boatride) and features a cozy atmosphere and beautiful views. Exquisite yet expensive food.

We had a family celebration and wanted to have it in the greatest sailing club of the town. The setting is excellent with view of the boats and the sea. Food is more fine dining and so are the prices. You would expect a service of same level, but no: we had to ask for everything, remind the waitress several... More

We had the five-course summer "herb-menu" with the wine set. The tastes were indeed fresh, but maybe we all expected a bit more. The portions for the starters could also have been a bit bigger. Clearly the best things about this experience were the view and the historic building.

I was in this restaurant for a business dinner and it was by far one of the best dinners I had so far. Not only was the food great (especially the clawfisch) but also the atmosphere and the location on a small island. The waiters are friendly and the food is really great.

Thank Marc C
