Enjoyed a Saturday brunch in Pastis with my friend in February. In addition to a three courses menu and great Chablis we experienced a friendly service and cozy atmosphere. Definitely recommend for visiting!

Just across the street from my hotel Lilla Roberts is this wonderful little restaurant with high class menu. I personally recommend their fish which was superb as well as the drink recommendations!

Nice place, but very small. Seems to be popular, so I recommend to make reservation beforehand. Food average, pricing ok.

We were recommended to this restaurant by Hotel Lilla Roberts, and it did not disappoint! Fabulous food, good wine and prompt service. The lobster was delicious!! We can't really comment on price - as we found most restaurants in Finland to be expensive - but we weren't going to let that make us miss out on some great meals! Service... More

Pastis is a place you will feel yourself wellcome and well served. Menu is clean & easy in terms of choices and value. Our night was really tasty and full of good flavours. Waiters were always there when you needed but in the correct way.. Highly recommended!👍

This is a neighbourhood restaurant with real french ambience. The interior is stylish yet cosy. The staff is professional and the service attentive. We were recommended nice pastis as aperitif and the wine recommendations were also spot on. We enjoyed our dinner very much.

I was staying in Hotel Lilla Roberts which is across the street and decided to have lunch in this "homely" French Restaurant. Friendly service, tasty Moules Frites in Creamy Cider sauce with delicious Chablis, so overall real nice stop. They have lots of French delicacies from snails to charcuterie plate, so definitely worth of visit. I was solo, so it... More

Pastis is one of the nicest restaurants in Helsinki! Atmospheric and cosy interior, not too stiff. The menu had something for everyone and for good value. Food was excellent. Desserts were average but good. Our waiter was lovely and gave us good wine recommendations. Definitely worth a visit!

This is a fantastic little French local with excellent food. It is evident that all the staff are true foodies and take their trade very seriously and know their stuff. I could have eaten everything on the menu and had trouble choosing as it all sounded so fantastic, but I ended up having the steak which was excellent.The service is... More

Night was quiet, so the excellent service was no surprise, but most welcome all the same. Restaurant was cozy and warm and very pleasant surrounds. I had the rabbit as a main which was amazing and matched to a perfect wine. Expensive but no surprise in Helsinki, but I don't think it was unreasonable. I recommend for a couple and... More
