Description: Restaurant Toca is owned by Italian Finnish family and it offers lunch and dinner made with fresh and seasonal ingredients mostly from Finland but also from the rest of the world. The restaurant has only 24 seats so it's better to book a table for dinner which is served from Tuesday to Saturday. No booking for lunch time.

“Truly great newcomer!”
Reviewed 20 October 2013 via mobile

Toca is a small restaurant with innovative cuisine and special, imported wines. Owners' dedication to quality is reflected in the menu, very good wine selections to accompany meals and the service altogether. Atmosphere is informal and friendly, I recommend!

“Average small restaurant”
Reviewed 3 October 2013 via mobile

We had great expectations after five stars in local press. We finally managed to get a table and were ready for great food. We had a three course menu. The starter was quite good, but the main course of fish was just average. The fish was a little tasteless and vegetables greasy. In the apple desert there were more different sauces than apple. The waitress didn't have much knowledge about wines, when we didn't want to have the wines of the menu. The ventilation of the place didn't work at all. There was a terrible smell of fried food, fish and meat even something burning...service was just average. One had the feeling they wanted you to leave immediately after the meal. We would just give 3 stars.

“Average experience”
Reviewed 3 August 2013 via mobile

We reserved a table after reading a very positive review from Helsingin Sanonat, the main local newspaper. However we had quite an average experience with quite nice squash soup to begin with, pretty bad pork & pork as the main and good chocolate & raspberry dessert. The matching wines were not well paired with the food. Service was friendly but there was only one waiter for the whole restaurant. Also one cannot choose the dishes on Friday and Saturday, which is a bit strange.
