We enjoyed an excellent six-course degustation with matching wines. We booked online and were invited to advise of any food allergies/dislikes. As others have commented it is a small and cosy place, and might not be an ideal place to be on a hot summers evening (presuming that Helsinki does have those occasionally). The waiter/floor manager Jani was friendly and... More

Small, cosy and friendly is the place itself, and unbelievable variety of super unusual tastes coming in a form of a multitude of dishes is the food offering, plus wine options always guaranteed to match the rest - a place you must visit if you're looking for emotions and inspirations! High cuisine as comfortable as you would love.

Just a few minutes away from the city center, a small, brick walled restaurant with a classical, simple and beautiful interior decoration. Tasting menus of 4 or 6 dishes with extras as compliments from the chef in between are served. For each food a wine recommendation is presented and nice way to enjoy this is to have just a small...

They really know how to host customers. The service and food were super good. Before to go I thought it would have been the classical "gourmet" restaurant instead the host bring to us several different type of wines for each different meals. If you are tired of the classical service and food , just go there :-).
