Had a few dinners here - never disappointed, they cook a tasting menu from seasonal nordic ingredients. As long as you are OK with strong flavors (herring, beets etc), you will have a great meal. Not a fine dining restaurant, but a comfy hip little...More

This intimate, casual restaurant excels in contemporary Nordic cuisine. The tasting menu is artful, beautiful, and delicious. We had a cucumber dill soup with chanterelle cream, puréed nettles with puffed barley on top of a custard-like eff yoke, pike fish three ways with a lettuce...More

The food at this place is very good, the waiters are attentive, and it is small and intimate. However the decor is more "shabby chic" cafe or wine bar, not for,as it turns out, an expensive dining "experience". The six course tasting menu was interesting,...More

This is really a small place and that is why the reservation is a must. The long menu with the wine package is really, really nice experience. Also the service is relaxed, attentive and kind. The total package is absolutely the worth of five star....More

Wow it's been a while since I've eaten here, I really found this place conceptually to be a fantastic dining establishment. Very personal relationship with the chef and intimate setting. I felt very welcome and definitely recommend coming to this place if you're in Helsinki!

I was a vegetarian for nearly twenty years, and I have never had vegetable-centered cuisine as exquisite as this. Yes, there was meat and fish on the menu, but the vegetables are the star here. The service is perfect, and the wines carefully selected. The...More

Small and cozy restaurant. Tables are close to each other but it doesnt bother. Tasting menu and wine package was absolutely amazing. Lots of vegetables and fantastic combinations. Wines were excellent and paired with portions.

Visited on a Tuesday night with a group of work colleagues and received, without a doubt, the best meal, with the best service, that I have ever experienced. The food was exquisite, varied, interesting and surprising. I'm not the world's biggest foodie, and was worried...More
