HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: One does have to book in advance – and it is a slight distance from downtown Helsinki but the standard of cuisine is excellent, so one can anticipate the finest quality food and the highest standard. The Menu is in Finnish – but the waiting staff are most obliging to translating it into fluent English, on the hoof.... More

Best lunch in Helsinki. Very friendly staff. I have eaten here many times and will come back again in the future too. Only small problem is that restaurant is not open daily for lunch.

We had the three course dinner with wine pairings. The food was well prepared and delicious but not very exciting. We had asparagus risotto, duck, and the cheese plate( 78 euro with wine). All just as expected, not much new here. The cheese plate was just that...cheese and fig jam...just like I serve to guests at home...very good but nothing... More

Expect fine dining quality food - of the highest standard. Relaxed atmosphere, not need to get dressed up - smart casual is fine. Menu is in Finnish however waitress explained it... More

We found this restaurant through trip advisor, I am so glad we checked it out! We arrived early as we had not booked. From the outset the staff were friendly and helpful. The menu(all in finish) was explained to us and wines recommended for each course. We ordered and each course was a taste sensation. There is much to recommend... More

Rony Eriksson has been running Kolo for more than two years, a restaurant that gets everything right. There are just 22 covers. There is a choice of only 3 or 4 dishes at each stage of the meal. The wines (unusual Italian producers are a speciality) vary often. The crockery has seen better days - though that adds to the... More

Seasonal menue, excellent food matched with great wines and friendly service in this small cosy restaurant. Serves are quite small so a four course meal is recommended. We had three courses and my wife was still a little hungry when we left
