This is the restaurant for the first cooking school in Finland. I have passed the store front for 10+ years but this was my first visit. As a teaching-restaurant, you need to understand that your waiter and kitchen staff maybe at the beginning of their careers and set expectations accordingly.
As it turned out, our waiter was inexperienced and we had to check twice to make sure our orders were noted correctly.
This is still "parsa" asparagus season and we were not let-down by the choices of preparation or the results that we were served. The main course was a filet of beef with steamed vegetables. All three diners were also happy. The wine selection is limited but enjoyable, as the Spanish, Altozano Tempranillo Cabernet Sauvignon was a good choice and at a reasonable price. My fellow diners each thought the passion fruit cheese cake with mango sorbet was quite good. Our meal ended with a coffee and Calvados, as is traditional of a good Finnish meal.
The final bill was very economical for Helsinki restaurant standards.
So do not wait a decade to try this restaurant. And when you do come, give encouragement to the young students!
