“Winter holiday closing dinner”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

Dinner. Table reserved on the same evening for party of three. Quite busy February Friday night, a bit too noisy to discuss at the beginning. Even though it was the month for Flambeed dishes special menu, I choose to stay in the Elite Classics, Vorschmack and Tauno Palo's steak with creamed onions. Food was good as expected. The wine list needs bit more inspiration and courage to price the better wines with more decent, even with brave capped fixed margins. Give it a try!

“Late lunch”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

You can always count on Elite. Traditional Finnish restaurant with good service and delicious food. I had the steak tartare and my partner a blini with vendace roe. Both were excellent and expecially the blini was really big and rich and buttery in taste. We both had liver for main. The dish was tasty. However, the liver was not as silky smooth as it usually is. The portion as a whole was good though. We had cava with the starters and dark Lapin Kulta beer with the mains.
Overall a very pleasant experience.

Reviewed 12 December 2013

Wonderful, traditional Finnish restaurant with a beautiful decor. Food is great, but the wine list could be more interesting.

“Traditional, stylish and delicious”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

With my family we visited it and we all enjoyed the food. The five of us all had different courses, but everyone was very pleased! The preparations were great, the size not too big and the service was stylish and polite.
We were served quickly enough, the restaurant was about half full on a Saturday evening.

“Good food, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed 31 March 2013

This is a restaurant I frequently use in business occasions. Typically on lunch time.
The restaurant is a bit old-fashioned, and probably meant to be like that. The place meets all my expectations on service and food quality wise.

Worth of visit if you are looking for a place to eat on Töölö area.
