Doner Restaurant
“Hate kebab? Me too! But not this place. Their kebab comes with amazing ciabatta-ish bread from a local bakery, a delightfully creative selection of herbs (no lettuce-YASS!) and the ever so delicious apple vinegar sauce. If you've never tried kebab with wine - here's the place to. Ask for their recommendations. ”

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.”
