One of the legendary old restaurants in Helsinki. White linen - cosy atmosphere - lot of art hanging on the walls.Very professional service and attitude - great personnel. My favor for years has been
as a starter " Esgargots " and main course the legendary " Tauno Palo beef " - named by a famous Finnish actor, who lived just a around the corner and used to pop in quite often.Good for business dinners.

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!

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.

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

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.
