Yes, it's expensive, but for atmosphere it's hard to beat, service was friendly, food was reasonable

Historically Helsinki's number one summer restaurant, Kappeli is still a good bet with its smoked fish, salads, and even, for the more adventurous, reindeer mousse appetizer.

I was drawn to this restaurant for the Victorian curved glass and iron frame structure, but this mini glass palace has more splendidness to share once inside. Prices are upper average, reservations a must, service a little surly, but overall a special spot to visit. The reindeer steak is excellent. The menu suggests wine pairings with nearly every dish. Salmon is also perfect. Skip the braised ripe lamb stew as you could perhaps do better yourself at home. Set menus help you decide, especially after near blindness caused by reading every item in Finnish, Swedish, then English. Indoor and outdoor seating, bar area and tea sections.

This is where I enjoyed a nice Reindeer steak. The place looked great so I looked at the menu for prices before I sat down for dinner. The prices are not too expensive being in Finland, the most expensive country from all the countries that uses Euro, at least for food. Its hard to find a place in Helsinki for a lunch under $20 and dinner under $40 for a nice sit down meal. Reindeer steak is priced at 35 euros ($50 dollars) and I just had to try it and believe me, I was not disappointed.

This place is a MUST. I love love love this cafe. I spent some time here both in the winder time as well as in the summer time and each time I had a great experience. The food is great, the drinks are great and the coffee delicious! It's a BIT pricey, but so is all of Finland. The Esplanadi is such a nice place to walk around too that I suggest a day exploring downtown Helsinki and the Esplanadi and then coming here for a light lunch/coffee break.
Oh, and the decor is awesome!!
