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 :-).

Expect to spend several hours at Spis over a meal of small dishes that the chefs manage to infuse with unusual local flavors. The tasting menu changes depending on what is fresh and available, and the cooks' inspiration. Presented in an extremely informative way by the friendly waiter, our meal was an odyssey of new wines paired with new ways... More

Recommended by a local and went to this warm and cosy restaurant for new style Finnish cuisine. All dishes were tasty and fresh alongside with a nice presentation. Waitresses were informative in introducing every single dish. This is a must-try restaurant for anyone who is open minded and wants to try the trendy Finnish dishes. Final bill was around EUR80...

An amazing tasting menu in a charmingly small restaurant. Several "hand-crafted", amazingly fresh tastes. This was one of the top meals of a two-week tour of Scandinavia. Don't be put off by the lack of menu, just trust that the chef will surprise and deliver. Also drank a reasonably priced bottle of wine.

Seats only 18. Fixed menu for 57€ for what they say is four courses but with all the plate cleansers and three types of bread and amuse bouches, and sweets its more like 10. The waiter explained all the food to us and the inspiration behind it. Each course was presented on beautiful artisan plates. The food is fabulous and... More
