Fodor's Review

Sitting at the mouth of Helsinki's south harbor, Saaristo sits on Klippan island. There's hardly a seat in the whole restaurant that doesn't offer a stunning view: from the Empire-era buildings to the north, to the massive sea fortress of Suomenlinna to the south, with yachts and cruise ships floating by. Seafood is a speciality, but the lightly smoked duck breast starter with pear and liquorice compote is divine, as is the seared moose with apple-celery puree. A selection

of Scandinavian cheeses is a great way to finish your meal, perhaps with a glass of schnapps. The ferry to the island leaves from Olympia terminal, near Kaivapuisto.
