Excellent surprices

Everything tasted very well, nicely put and pro staff handling many languages. You can also tell your wishes concerning surprice menu. Price was in balance with good food and service. Athmosphere and decoration, terrace covered with glasses were nice.

I've dined two times here. The first time I had the surprise menu, the second time I had the Ragú menu. The three course surprise menu was amazing. I won't spoil it for you, but I had fennel in my dessert and it tasted great. The best thing: the main course was the best. (Usually restaurants pay a lot of... More

Our table ate 5 course surprise menu with pairing wines. The courses were surprisingly quite big (comparing to other fine dining restaurants with tasting menus) and tasty. I loved the salomon cheviche and the sweet potato soup with pork.The wines matched with the food also really well. I liked the fact that they didn't took the selection of breads (which... More

The food here is very good. The location means that this restaurant will thrive or fail on its reputation and it deservedly has an excellent one. I tried the set menu with wine pairings and enjoyed each and every course. The veal was especially good. The service as attentive but not intrusive. Overall, we had a very enjoyable evening and...

We went for a special dinner with friends, inspired by good recommendations. The athmosphere was nice, pleasant but not stiff. Food absolutely fantastic ; really special smoky sweat potato soup in a jar with pork ribs. Took the recommended wines,which accompanied the food really well. Not cheap, but good value for money. And the service was good

The welcome and placing you is warm and attentive. The drink selection is wide and with quality. Personnel serves you with courtesy and lets you taste wines if not sure what would be the best on each and everyone's palate. The food: fabulous, varying tastes and aesthetically very well presented. Absolute: Go and Enjoy.

I recommend to any type of visit, even solo dinner like me. The dinner would make you spent a lovely night. Choose the 3 courses set. Menu is decided by the chef, even the staff didn't know what it is. That's fun! It's cosy. Staff can recommend wine based on your taste with good choice.

Coming to this restaurant was definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Helsinki. We ordered the 5 course surprise menu (except that we asked them to change the dessert for one with chocolate we saw in the menu). All the food was very very tasty. The service was also one of the best I have ever experienced. We... More
