Nokka is the best restaurant I've eaten dinner at in Helsinki.The restaurant is focused on Finnish produce and has seasonal menus. I strongly recommend the menu packages that are put together by the restaurant.

The old Michelin red guide books used the phrases Merits a Detour and Worth the Trip. Take your pick which you prefer, either way this place is both. The setting is a stylishly converted warehouse on the waterfront under the orthodox Uspensky (assumption) cathedral. The menu is simple, either a la carte, or ( I recommend) the four course tasting... More

Highly recommended -- creative and fun cuisine using local ingredients. The restaurant is next to a cosy cafe and the relaxed vibe carries through. Service was friendly and discrete -- a great balance. It's not cheap but the food is first rate and represents good value given the care and skill in its preparation.

We chose the four course set menu with wine parings. Each course was good, but I particularly liked the smoked herring and the reindeer dishes, along with the Alsace wine. The restaurant was very busy with Christmas party bookings and when our first course took a long time to arrive, our waitress kindly told us to go ahead and enjoy... More

Went for the tasting menu, two for the green and five for the meet eaters with the wine pairing. Our waitress... More

Cloudberries are a. too bitter (vit C) b. too sweet (chef hiding the bitterness with SUGAR). So, they offer on their website a cava/cloudberry drink to begin with. Like a fool I am, I accept. We loved it! The taste of couldberry and the sweetness was a perfect balance with the bubbly. Cloudberry was like a red yarn through the... More

This is a lovely place with brick walls and high ceilings yet very up to date interior. I have been here five times enjoying both dinner and lunch. The food has been always excellent and wine recommendations spot on. The staff is attentive and the service always excellent. .

This restaurant works closely with local food producers and as such knows the origin of its ingredients.. We had the tasting menu, which came with small snack suprises between the courses. Every dish was carefully introduced, and excellently presented, and everything is tastefull. If you want to eat modern Finnish, this is a good option.

The most I appreciate that they know where their food comes from. In addition to that, the service is excellent and the food is great. The food and wines are paired excellent way. Also, the place and ambience is very good. If you are prepared to pay a bit more than average, Nokka is an excellent place to visit.
