There were menu choice of 35 euros with 4 courses. It was very good and worth of money. Staff was very friendly and took into account our one very allergic... More

I have visited this restaurant on many occasions and the food has always been very good. The quality of the waiting staff can vary a lot, so it is unfortunately a bit of a hit and miss with who happens to be working your table. Some are excellent, some of the best in Helsinki, but many are just average or... More

Superb, great, delicious, a vouyage through a secret set menu. With wine pairing. Not cheap. But worth the 20 minutes walk from our hotel in the snow! Thanks to the staff at Aito for making it such a great experience. Will return

Food is really delicious: menu set was based on local seasonal products and it was fantastic! The restaurant is definitely suitable for couples and small groups. Also there was great and friendly staff that was ready to give all information on wine and food. Must visit!

We had cost concerns eating in a Nordic capital city but the 3 course daily set menu was excellent value and the food delicious - lamb tartare, grilled white fish then raspberry & chocolate dessert. Staff were friendly, helpful... More

This place was short of nothing. We went there on Saturday evening with my wife. I had managed to screw up with reservation but they still managed to get a table for us. I took a menu with 4 (surprise) courses. Wines were really suited for the food. All tasted brilliant, but the dessert rocked the evening. Liquirice and yoghurt... More

Me and my wife went to Aito to celebrate a special occasion. It was already a third visit for us, but Aito always gives a super positive feeling. We took the six course tasting menu, and wow: the combination of food and meticulously chosen wines - just suberb! This is a warm recommendation for all the foodies out there: genuine,... More

Very nice starter buffet with different veggies and fish. Three choices of main course, of which one was vegetarian. A couple of choices for dessert as well. Desserts were not so tasty (too dry cake), but main course and starter buffet were very nice. Sunday "brunch" had a good price for a three course meal in Helsinki. The restaurant is... More
