Took my wife there for a special dinner for her b'day. We are vegetarians and I really appreciated them making a vegetarian tasting menu for us. Wine collection is great, we got to try the orange and natural wines for the first time. The creativity in food ofcourse blew us away, not to mention the little extra bonuses we got... More

we have discovered this nice and small restaurant during business trip. It is mandatory to book in advance otherwise difficult to get a table. Food, service and wines are absolutely delightful ! they make their own bread and their own butter : delicious !! if you have a chance to get a table don't hesitate !!

Almost everything about the meal was perfect. The wines were outstanding. The service was impeccable. I loved how we were given explanations of each course and in particular thought it was a great personal touch that Sasu himself explained the sourcing and preparation of the food for the signature course. After the meal, we had a short conversation about Noma... More

The menu consists of 9 dishes (you select between 4 and 9) which are made with painstaking care (growing the majority of their own produce). The Head Chef, who personally greets every table, explains his vision for food and how they do not waste any ingredients, his staff point out all the work that has gone into each dish and... More

a great meal where each dish is delivered with an outstanding explanation of the origin of the ingredients, or how it was put together. Make reservations in advance if you are visiting Helsinki!

Find dining in an un-pretentious atmosphere. The chef sasu entertains the guests with intricate details of the different processes that went into making the dishes. The food is truly innovative and dietary restrictions are not a problem for the chef. Excellent use of nearby raw ingredients, such as the douglas fir oil, made from local douglas fir. Johans pick of... More

Always great wines at reasonable price and innovative ways of using season vegetables. Fish has never been a disappointment and meatcourses often suprise. Great personnel, very much into giving clients the best they can provide. Not your place if you are a hotdog-on-the-go kind of person.

Four of us went for meal yesterday. Minute portions of tasteless food apart from the over salted cabbage.

Fabulous food, incredible service directly interacting with the chef and sommelier, no waiters, so not a hint of snobbiness or attitude or distance between the kitchen and customer. We very stupidly arrived on the wrong night for our reservation. Despite this during the visit of a guest Icelandic chef and their small space being completely full and they just fitted... More
