Not worth visiting

Tasteless, too complicated, strange and overpriced food. Really! How did they get one Michelin?? Maybe the quality varies day by day and we just weren't lucky this time... The service was okay, though a bit slow.

Our 4th visit and still excited as it was our first. Of course the food is superb, but C&S is first and foremost a global experience. The service here is utterly, utterly professional. Actually, and we're speaking by experience, no other restaurants in Helsinki - heck in Finland - come closer to this level of perfection. You want to sample... More

This was our third visit to what has become our favourite restaurant anywhere on the planet. The food is innovative, full of flavour combinations to surprise you, the atmosphere is warm and friendly and the staff are relaxed, friendly and attentive to your needs. We decided on the 7 course option this time, to which was added an appetiser, home... More

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!
