Went here with a group of 7 people during the restaurant week at 17:30 without a reservation. Even though the restaurant was fully occupied and the restaurant seemed pretty busy the head waiter went out of the way to create some space for us and allowed us to take a table that was reserved for 7 o'clock.

Since the burgers were 10 euro's during the restaurant week we all went for the BBQ burger which was tasty, a good portion and delivered rapidly. Served with fries, mayonnaise and some salad on the burger it was a good experience.

I want to do a special shout out to the guy serving us I am assuming he was the head waiter. He was extremely friendly, made smart and funny remarks and "played" with us even though it was a full house. Not to mention that he also spoke fluent French which might be interesting for any French visitors in Helsinki!

Would come back here some time to try one of the other dishes! Keep up the great work!

We had a groupon to this place so it didn't cost that much for us, otherwise, this is a expensive and fancy place. We had a three corse menu. The soop was the greatest piece of food in my life. The rest of the food was good to. It was mushroom soop by the way. The service was excellent, the waitresses kept an guard.

Used to be privatly owned before. Today it belongs to a big co-op chain with many restaurants in Helsinki and all over the country. Usually it doesn't get better with a big owner. König is o.k. for a quick lunch but not for fine dining in the evening. The ambience is there, but the food and service is mediocre. Also the place, just in the center of Helsinki, is perfect. Something is missing. Just to sell a hamburger in this place for eur 19,00 is lunecy. All in all the choses on the menu seems to be very few and very week.

Called in here for lunch off our cruise and enjoyed a tasty, inexpensive lunch with a good selection of rehydration to choose from. Staff were friendly and up for a chat about the Konig's history. A very pleasant event.

The service and atmosphere seemed to be good when we arrived. Had the Toast Skagen for starter that was nice as well. But when we got to the main course it was a big disappointment. The salmon pasta I had was terrible. It was tagliatelle in a strange watery sauce with a salmon filet on top. My wifes chicken dish was bad as well. Fresh vegetables in some kind of chocolate sauce. Not enjoyable. The staff was attentive and helpful but the problem was really the food.
