When we first heard of Bistro Badenbaden late April we weren’t really even aware of a such building existing at Hietaranta beach. The building itself is rather new and resembles of a fire station. You will recognize the place of its red color. The location is just perfect at the beach right next to the basketball court and volleyball courts. Interesting thing is that one may enjoy Badenbaden II treats at Hernesaaren Ranta as well. Badenbaden II at Hernesaaren Ranta serves Mediterranean flavours also by the sea as you know. Both locations are just perfect for spending the summer days.
Experienced team behind Bistro Badenbaden
Bistro Badenbaden is the first bistro style restaurant of one of the most known and Evento Award recognized catering company Theron Catering. The owners of Theron Catering guarantee great experiences will be granted and the staff is highly professional. The restaurant manager of Bistro Badenbaden Sami told us the sunny days have been really crowded so far since the opening around May Day. Although Bistro Badenbaden at Hietaranta beach is definitely worth a visit on rainy days as well.
When we entered Bistro Badenbaden for the first time we were pleasantly surprised by the cool decor. Interior, plates and stuff represent very Scandinavian style in a good way.
Easy going food combined with excellent cocktails
Food is the strength of Theron Catering and it shows in both Bistro Badenbaden and Badenbaden II. The food is easy going and Badenbaden II even has a wood grill which gives a nice touch to the food. The specialty in Hernesaaren Ranta at Badenbaden II is lobster and seabass made on the grill. Bistro Badenbaden at Hietaranta beach has grilled chicken as a speciality. Both locations have an amazing burgers as well and good vegetarian options. I just love sweet potato fries and I am happy Bistro Badenbaden, or as friends know the place BBB, offer those.
Bistro Badenbaden at Hietaranta beach is a cafe as well. There’s plenty of cakes and savory options available for beaningful moments. The unique thing though are them cocktails. One of Finnish cocktail champs Timo Siitonen, the man behind one of the best cocktail bars in the world A21, has designed the cocktail menu. The cocktail list includes easy classics like GT but what would be a better summer cocktail than classic yet up and coming strawberry margarita. Imagine sipping one of those at the colorful terrace by the sea.
Pop up beach holiday
Bistro Badenbaden at Hietaranta beach offers a great venue for a pop up beach holiday. On Saturdays Bistro Badenbaden hosts a club with DJ playing during the evening. In July there’s Eau de Club Sunset on Saturday evenings. Bistro Badenbaden II is a great option as well with a little bit different chilling atmosphere. There’s a lot of happenings in Hernesaaren Ranta during the summer including concerts on weekends so one can grab a bite from Badebaden II and enjoy some live music.
