“Superb food.”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

I wanted to visit a Finnish restaurant and this one ticked all the boxes. The most deleicious reindeer fillet and a wonderful sea buckthorn panna cotta. Wine list excellent, but expensive as are all wibes in Finland.

“Best restaurant in Helsinki”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

This is my favourite restaurant in Helsinki. I have dined here multiple times and can highly recommend it to everyone. Fresh ingredients and good prices. The staff is very attentive and one can trust their food & wine pairings. Unfortunately they are closed for the whole summer due to renovations, but if you are planning to visit Finland in august, you should definitely head to this place!

“Delicious food”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

This smallish restaurant accommodates maybe 40 guests or so and it still not too loud. It was full the night we were there because there were 30 of us and all other tables occupied too.

Food is nicely presented and delicious. They use even stone plates beautifully. We had a menu with wine pairings which was perfect. As a dessert we had traditional cake because it was a birthday party of two. Nice!

We had a really nice dinner. It was a little bit hot because of the weather but atmosphere was pleasant.

They close for renovation starting the 2nd of June and will be open again in August.

“Fabulous little gem”
Reviewed 8 May 2014

We picked this restaurant after reading a previous review. A little off the main track but certainly worth a visit. We went for the chefs 5 course menu of 2 starters, 2 mains and a dessert. All fabulous and seasonal Finnish food - smoked bream, partridge, sea trout, pork and rhubarb. Lovely presentation and all very tasty. Staff also very friendly, great to talk too and made various recommendations of what to do and where else to eat.
A must visit restaurant.

“domestic fine dining”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

We had the menu of the day with two starters and one main course with dessert. Great fresh domestic ingredients of fish, duck and rhubarb among others. Nice selection of wines and good attentive service. If you want to experience Finnish fine dining to a modest price this is the place to visit.
