During the busiest years Manu has been running 3 restaurants at the same time and one could say there was a plenty of things to do for the whole family. Lately it has been one of the best decisions to focus on only one restaurant. This enables the Manu and the team to provide even better experiences for the customers. On top of this there is now more time for the family. Manu is excited about the location at Töölönlahti bay and he tells the familyu was the first restaurateur at the new Töölönlahti bay area once the building of the area started.
