Cosy wood cabin atmosphere and pretty good service. My husband enjoyed the various meats we tried but I struggle with unusual meat (don't get me wrong, I'm not a fussy eater and love cooking and eating out). This meant that the meal was a bit of a 'mind over matter' experience. I guess it's just too gamey for me!

You don't need to wander over vast frosty Lapland in search of authentic lappy food ! Just visit this cozy friendly place in the center of Helsinki . Situated in the ground floor of the conventional concrete n steel building this place reminds old good village-stile lappy hut : totally in rough wood, B n W snaps on the walls,... More

Coming with great expectations, but after charging us two bottles of wine instead of one, we left in a bad mood. Of course we mentioned it to them, they politely excuse for the mistake tat had been done, and corrected the bill. But making a mistake of 50€ could not be excepted. Even the waitress that served us has been... More

Really nice and "authentic" Finnish / Lappish restaurant with, obviously, tons of delicious reindeer and salmon the setting, all in wood, looks like deep forets Kota, and the waiters dressed in traditional clothes make you feel far far away from the capital city a great place to "land" in Finland

It's one of those small restaurants that you might miss. First, it's on a side-street and barely noticed. The interior? All resembling some Lapland operation. Menu is all Finn-related (rabbit, reindeer, bear, etc). Very cozy operation. Strongly recommend you call at least three or four days ahead to make reservations...especially on Saturday night. For two, don't expect the end-cost to... More

Visited Helsinki for a week and my colleagues took me to Lappi. The restaurant is very rustic and cosy. The host was very helpful, explaining the dishes, English Menu etc. We had a mixed platter as a starter and reindeer steak as a main. Not really to my taste but would definitely recommend the restaurant as I was keen to... More

Lovely decorated restaurant in typical Lapland style. We took the mixed Lapland appetizer and the mixed Lapland main dish. Both excellent particularly if you want to experience reindeer and elk. Service is perfect and everybody speaks English. A place to go specially for foreigners who want to taste Lapland. Walking distance from Esplanade and railway station

Traditional Finnish cuisine. Rabbit, Moose, Wolf, Sheep, Fox, Bear. Served well. I have been there several times the food great. It feels like eating under korpikuusi :)

Had a Business dinner with foreign customers. They loved the athmosphere and food(reindeer beef)...for me as a Finn...maybe too much "Lapland". Had reindeer stew...basic stuff, not enough salt. Prices are a bit high but as this is in the center of Helsinki...understood...

We went to restaurant Lappi to give the local Finnish cuisine a try. Eventually, we were in for a treat. The venue is small, yet not too crowded. The decoration is carefully chosen to match a Finnish blockhouse, with its walls plated with wooden panels. There are only a few tables, yet we were fortunate enough that someone did not... More
