Naturally wine plays an integral part in the dining experience. Our cellars are filled with interesting wines, including wines that are exclusively available at Olo. In our restaurant, you can feel the passion for work and food. Everyone in Olo shares that same feeling - love for food. That love and genuine warmth we want you also to feel as our guest. We have been awarded in Michelin Guide with one star since 2011. Welcome to enjoy!

Enjoyed a business dinner here in April after a local recommendation. The decor certainly was in direct relation to the prices. The wine was certainly priced at a premium.

The food was very nice and beautifully served, my steak was cooked to perfection and the service was impeccable. I'd certainly return here with clients. Well worth their Michelin star.

Great expectations but Olo did not deliver. Wine package was not worth the spent money. Many dishes were innovative but ingredients used were not of highest standard. If you are seated out of the main restaurant hall the atmosphere is more like a typical company cafeteria.

Menu is not only fixed but a mystery until dishes are presented. Nevertheless, each individual item is creatively constructed and impeccably executed and well deserving of Olo's Michelin star status..
Service is very friendly and as accommodating as it can be given the fixed format.
Only issue is a undeserved charge of 7 euros per person for purified (as opposed to bottled) water about which diners are not informed at the outset. Moreover, this purified tap water is inaccurately billed as "mineral water."'
Also, acoustics need to be tuned as the hard surfaces create too much sound.

We did the journey and it was fairly spectacular. 5 hours of theatre with occasional elements of culinary genius. Massively expensive though even by Helsinki standards and less thrilling or enjoyable than Chef and Sommelier.

What a journey.!!! Service food time taste was soo good. It is really a super treat . Would really advise to any one with time curiosity to go for this treat. From start to end you are discovering great taste impressive innovation and you are just guided. The only point where I was astonished was to drink alsace wine in non alsace glasses. But well it was really minor. Go and enjoy I really did
