Scandinavian Restaurant
$$
“The restaurant, opened in 1934, server its customers Finnish food and atmosphere. The spirit of the restaurant is created, with a little help from the personnel, by its particular clientele. Restaurant Sea Horse has served Finnish delicates, such as crispy fried Baltic herrings, vorschmack, herring plates and Wiener schnitzels, for as long as 80 years. It’s safe to say that Sea Horse is a part of Finnish restaurant history, perhaps already somewhat of an institution.”

“Mattolaituri is a seaside terrace located at the beautiful inlet between the islands of Uunisaari and Harakka. You can enjoy the spectacular sea view over a glass of wine. Mainly focused on beverages and other drinks amongst small snacks. You can walk there along the beautiful sea promenade. Afterwards you can walk through the nearby Kaivopuisto park, which is one of the biggest parks in the city centre. ”

“If you believe famous Finnish bloggers, Bar & Grill Kauppuri 5 has the best burgers in Finland. It's a small place and can be a little bit crowded during peak hours but I can assure you it's still worth the wait. Teurastaja (Butcher in english) is a good burger to start you Kauppuri 5 experience with. If you don't want to eat the bun you can order Heinäpään Teurastaja (The Butcher of Heinäpää) which is like Teurastaja but the bun is replaced with salad bed. Kauppuri 5 serves some quality beers too if you're into them. The Kitchen is open every day from 11am to 01.30am. They don't take reservations.”
