It started already with the on-line reservation: quick response, fast confirmation and a personal welcoming note from the owner. We were then very well received by a friendly waiter who gave us excellent attention during the whole evening - excellent service all the way! We decided for the 7 course journey menu + the cocktail package. The food was excellent;... More

They make it as a story through Finnish nature, this time it was the "Summer journey on the Archipelago". Courses come with special cocktails, here in tasting sizes, but you can get them normal as well;) The flavours are so in balance, pure and subtle, the cocktails supporting and highlighting each of the dishes. A21 is also one of the... More

We ate a 5-course-menu with friends. All the dishes were excellent, maybe some of them were a bit small especially if you come here hungry and are a bigger guy. I could also recommend the cocktail menu, as all the cocktails were different and worked well with the dishes. But unfortunately when our waitress left, nobody took care of us... More

The fake fire in the initial 'bar' area was a bit of a turn-off in the beginning, however when we were ushered into the dining area and the food started rolling in, all the doubts were cleared about the quality of the place. Excellent and imaginative dishes each served with its own unique cocktail. A bit on the expensive side,... More

What can I say, love it. Been here four times, and there will be more to come. Their concept is extremely well thought out, creating story around the food and masterfully mixing it with different kind of drinks. Service is international and decor is excellent. I've eaten many places around the world, haven't seen anything like this, I've eaten Michelin... More

We chose the 7 courses with matching cocktails which came to just under €150pp. It was certainly a journey with a very Finnish type story about the seasonal themes and the moss on the ground etc. A bit of a novelty but worth doing once 7 cocktails was quite a lot especially if you don't like gin.

This restaurant is not cheap and we paid almost 300 Euros for two. But I would definitely recommend it because this was the most different eating experience I have ever made. *SPOILER AHEAD!* You seat in a minimalistic all white room and let the waiter bring you dish after dish (5 or 7). Each dish is accompanied by a cocktail... More

This is by far the best restaurant in Helsinki at the moment. Superb food in a stylish atmosphere. Delicious tasting menu, and incredibly warm welcoming by owners and main chief with champagne. Would happily eat there every night for the rest of my life. Really can't recommend this place strongly enough.

Follows the concept of A21 Cocktail Lounge but does not reach the same level. Good food and service but perhaps bit overprices.

I have been to A21 Cocktail Lounge before but this was my first time experiencing A21 Dining. My partner and I went for our Valentine's Day dinner and I will say that it was the perfect choice for this occasion. In the venue which combines both a sophisticated and romantic atmosphere, not only did we get to enjoy the journey... More
