Eat&Joy Sea -tour for international media
Welcome to enjoy two hour culinary boat tour to Helsinki`s finest Island Restaurants!
The shorefronts and islets in the immediate vicinity of the Helsinki city centre host over 30 fine restaurants!
The Eat&Joy -summer event "Eat&Joy Sea" intends to high-light the exceptional quality & quantity of Helsinki´s islets and its island-restaurants, and to show how easily accessible these are. Virtually all island-restaurants provide a free shuttle-service.
The Idea and the Mission of Eat&Joy Sea are:
To enjoy a mouth-watering summer drink in a nice restaurant by the Market Place, and, then, to switch to the next restaurant´s maritime terrace to taste the season´s starters. Soon it will be time to dash by connecting boat to an adjacent islet to savour an insular main course and to watch the passenger liners glide down the sunset. Then, the dessert with its sweet wine will be best enjoyed in yet another little island, while the moon already rises and the sea breathes all around. To round the evening off you move on to a third islet for live music in a lively club.
Registration to Eat&Joy Sea -tour 11.5. and more information aki.arjola@unione.cc gsm + 358 400 300 654
