Fodor's Review

This elegant restaurant by the harbor was formerly the home of Captain G. W. Sundman. The building was designed by C. L. Engel, architect of the historical center of Helsinki under Czar Alexander I. The grand main restaurant, with molded ceilings and chandeliers, serves modern international cuisine. Sundmans Krog on the ground floor has a nautical theme and vaulted ceilings, as well as an excellent herring buffet.

Finnish with a touch

Probably one of the better restaurants in Helsinki, serving Finnish cuisine with an international touch (or was it the other way round?). The ambience is quite classy, like dining in the private rooms of a wealthy 19th century citizen, service very considerate (unlike observed by another Ranter&Raver here) food is excellent, maybe for real world-class a little lacking in imagination and novelty. In any case worht a visit.
