There's a wide choice of different pizzas and a selection of traditional Finnish sandwiches (what I liked most) with some difficult-to-say Finnish names. These things are really great!
The service is very fast and friendly. The restaurant is fully licensed. Katajanmarja also has an outdoor terrace, but it's in the yard of Eurohostel, so there's hardly any view. Katajanmarja itself is also situated in the basement, so you have to admire the interior design of the place. It’s not bad after all.
The only drawback of the place is that it's really of no use to go there in the evening. The island of Katanajokka is interesting only during the day, but everything closes there at 6pm. If you are walking somewhere in the centre, it's much easier to find an eatery there instead of going to Katajanmarja. But if you're taking a walk along the terminals and suddenly feel like having a snack, that's okay.
Katajanmarja is also a great dining place for those people staying in Eurohostel who haven't found anything suitable in town.
