We had 3-course dinner with wine recommendations. All different menu options were tried and everyone was satisfied with the ones they'd chosen. The atmosphere was stresfree. The waiter explained the dishes and wines carefully. We had a lovely evening!

We were delighted to have found this place. The menu was short and sweet, with three choices for each course, and everything was freshly and beautifully prepared. Each dish was excellent with delicious flavours and the service was friendly and attentive. Although not inexpensive (a theme of the city in general) we felt this was great value for money and...

First we couldn't get a table, but the friendly English speaking waiter promised one soon, so we had drinks in the bar first. There are not so many tables, so it's good to reserve especially during the week end. We had one portion of fried perche, one salmon salade and their vegetarian dish, one bottle of wine, slices of Comte... More

Menu is simple, we had the pork belly, steak tartare special and veal. All were fantastic with the tartare being one of the best I've had. Service was attentive, English impeccable. They even took the time to explain how the veal was cooked so I wasn't concerned with the coloring (pink). Home made butter was incredible with their fresh bread.... More

Eat in pretty small courtyard. Small restaurant and very small menu (nearly always a sign of good fresh food). Had carpaccio of trout with Finnish salad - really delicious, followed by very tasty and delicately cooked perch with langoustine potato and pea purée. Really excellent food, charmingly served.

During our stay in Helsinki we enjoyed a great meal at Pure Bistro. We had a great table in their simple but very enjoyable court-yard. They served their freshly baked bread in a paper bag! Great idea! The dishes were all beautifull presented and the taste was top! We loved the food and the informal service by ladies only! All... More

Went to this restaurant on the recommendation of our hotel. My daughter was a little tired and young for the menu, but they made her own dish without issue. Menu had 3 options for entree, main and dessert. My wife and I tried different options and all the food was good. Japanese style BBQ pork was a standout. Food and... More

We were the only diners in this restaurant last Sunday evening which seems a great shame. People don't know what they're missing! We had an interesting and beautifully presented meal served in a pleasant little courtyard by two delightful waitresses who, like everyone in Finland it seems, spoke impeccable English. The menu isn't long but I could have happily eaten... More

Central location and very very Good biatro-style food! Not too fancy in any respect, but excellent service, high quality ingredients and good pairings with wines. Dishes are large in size, so I have never been left with a feel that I paid for looks, not the taste or size, of the meal.
