My husband(first time to Finland), my brother and his wife decided for the 6 course menu with wine pairing. We chose Luomo due to the menu incorporating Finnish elements and Finnish ingredients. The location is slightly hidden near Kauppatori in an old building up we thought the multiple little dining rooms made the place intimate. Our young server (I didn't... More

Each of the 11 or so courses is a masterpiece of creativity, but the chef overuses foam and some of the dishes come across as excessively fat-laden. Certainly merits the Michelin star but the price and for some, creative overkill, will make it difficult for this relatively new restaurant to secure a lot of repeat business.

Thoroughly enjoyed the Tour of Finland menu. The food was fantastic but very slow in being served and took 4.5hours to complete. The waiting staff, whilst polite, need more training and the sommelier must stop tipping the last of the bottle (dregs and all) into the glass. It was an expensive meal but worth every euro despite the service issues.

Had a lovely five (5) course meal (11 if you count the small appetizers that were brought along) at Luomo this evening. The atmosphere is very relaxed for a Michelin star reaturant and the waiters are very friendly and talkative. Although I had my suspicions in the beginning, the chefs really know what they are doing. Only traditional Finnish incredients... More

Had a lovely, delicious 5 course meal at Luomo. The dishes along with the various amouse bouches were more than enough although the portion size was quite small - the dishes were flavorful with interesting combinations and nice looking. the wait staff was very attentive and courteous. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a special occasion dinner -... More

Just landed in Helsinki and ravenous. Was recommended Luomo by a colleague. I got slightly worried at the set menu @75€. Not cheap. The portions are very nouvelle cuisine. Translate 'tiny'. But.... The 5 course turned into 10 as the waiter kept dropping tiny appetizers on the table. And each of them was a very tasty and balanced affair. (Main... More

Just arrived in Helsinki and were recommended Luomo by our concierge. We were more than pleasantly surprised. We chose the 3-course tasting menu (although you can get 5 and 7 as well). Each course was unique, juxtaposing flavors and ingredients you would not expect to go together. The restaurant also surprised us with multiple "amuse-bouches". The service was attentive although...

Very good atmosphere, outstanding food and a beautifull location near the Helsinki market place and harbour. Expensive, but the money is very well spent.

Having visited many other good restaurants in Helsinki and considering that this restaurant has a Michelin star, I expected great food and excellent service. The food was generally good, with many interesting dishes, although some dishes were a bit borderline (including a taster served in a test-tube). The biggest negative about this place is that the service is horrible. None... More
