Innovative, Healthy and Fabulous Food

This was a short lunch stop which turned out to be absolutely fabulous. The set lunch was affordable, yet of high standard. Before the main course was served, every customer was given a portion of fruit/vegetable juice to be drank from a bottle, and flavourful and warm bread as a starter. I was... read more

A really stunning inventive restaurant, which could hold its own in any major "foody" city. Interesting combinations of tied and trusted ingredients, but in a very modern way. Although the meal was set they were nevertheless able to accommodate allergies without any fuss. While the portions are small in keeping with very modern cuisine, we did not feel hungry at... More

We arrived in December for a quick gastronomic stopover in Helsinki. The location of the restaurant is easily accessible and we were shown to our table promptly by an icy waiter. The food was beautifully plated but the flavours hardly worked. It seem to be labouring around complex descriptions that failed to lift off all together. There is a-la-carte choice... More

My mum and I were visiting Helsinki got a few days and I decided to book in at Luomo, as it was one of the only Michelin Star restaurants in Finland. Coming all the way from Australia and having eaten at many fine dining restaurants in Sydney (and elsewhere around the world), Luomo was far superior to anything I have... More

Following recommendations we decided to arrange the annual Christmas Dinner of our company at Luomo. From the point-of-view of quality of food, our expectations were certainly met. However, from the service-point -of-view this visit was a disappointment. Our party of eight decided to go for the 6-course menu. The quality and presentation of this was outstanding as was to be...

After having visited Restaurant Luomo for a few times I have noticed that they have improved every time. The food has been enjoyable since the first time. Still the flavors come out better and better. The beautiful and innovative portions of food are delighting! The wines appropriate. The presentation and the service is so friendly and considerate. Extra bonus is... More

My husband and I have been to Luomo twice. Our first experience was amazing, the food was creatively presented and playful. Tastes were light and refined. We then decided to go back a second time about a year later and still the standards were good. We left really satisfied and have been recommending Luomo to friends. Definitely our favourite Michelin... More

We picked Luomo because it's one of the Michelin star restaurants in Helsinki. It certainly lives up to its name. Every dish is nicely presented and they are like a piece of art! The waitress who served our table is very attentive and explained each dish to us clearly. Price is very reasonable. Luomo is definitely one of the best... More

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.
