We visited Ragu a couple of months ago. The restaurant is surprisingly big and has a modern look. Service was friendly but slow on a busy Friday evening. We had a surprise menu. Food was good but not excellent. If you are into gin try one from the local Helsinki Distillery Company, good for G&T. If you are visiting Helsinki... More

We chose this restaurant on the basis of these reviews and weren't too disappointed. The service was friendly yet professional. The environment was calm if a little bit pretentious. The food and beer however were really really good - not cheap. Recommended

We had a very pleasant dinner at Ragu. Nice decoration, good service, and a very creative set menu. There are not many choices in the menu, and you won't get classic Italian dishes. The chef uses very good quality ingredients and the presentation of the dishes was very nice. Everything we had was flavorful and met our expectations. This restaurant... More

Young restaurant with lots to give any demanding traveler. Have visited Ragu twice and both times chosen their "Surprise Menu" with five courses together with their wine "package" - and both times the surprises have been extremely positive, no disappointments. Food has been delicious, their specialty of smoking some parts of the food is pleasant, delicious experience, and so is... More

The food was expensive but totally worth the price. We had the surprise menu and it was very luxurious and tasty. There was food I couldn't even have imagined, like lobster foam! The staff was really friendly and professional. All in all a great experience.

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
