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

The new wave of Scandinavian cuisine has hit the shores of Finland comparatively recently, but with restaurants like Luomo, Helsinki should now be firmly placed on the gastronome's travel radar. We had a truly memorable dinner in a relaxed yet intimate setting. The decor is minimalist but warm, in a cool, bright room overlooking Helsinki's market square.The service is smiling... More

Luomo was truly a special experience. Helsinki has experienced a boom in high quality restaurants, and we chose Luomo as our special, high-end dinner for this trip. We selected the five-course menu with wine pairings. Each course was beautifully prepared and absolutely delicious. I particularly liked the wine pairings--the choices in wine were unorthodox (one course featured a Moroccan red)... More

We had a taste of Menu 32 with wines, and have to say that the dinner was very good. Some real surprises - tastes that go well together when you thought they wouldn't, but then maybe some quite average things that made you want to go on to the next item. Perhaps the fennel dessert was the most surprise. This... More

This is a lovely spot but we were very disappointed in the lack of flexibility for a vegetarian and another guest who did not eat beef. We had corresponded in advance about our dietary limitations and told them that our guests would be celebrating their anniversary. We had been assured that it would be fine. However our meal was neither... More
