The restaurant is very romantic, the staff is serviceminded and know the wines by heart. The food is fancy, small portions (we had 6 course menu) and good. They minded our allergies very well. the service was great almost the whole dinner but in the end we had to wait for our desserts for way... read more

We recently moved back to Finland after more than 30 years abroad and decided to try out one of the most acclaimed eatery's in this beautiful city of ours. Let's do the easy bit first. The food. As times are tough we opted for the basic 4 course menu which consists of two starters, a main course, and a desert.... More

We had a very nice family dinner at Demo on Saturday night. Atmosphere in this restaurant was very warm and it felt almost like home. We had 4 courses dinner, while the maximum amount of different courses was seven. This was a good selection with kids, we spend nearly 3 hours in the restaurant. Wines was well selected to suit...

This is my second visit to this amazing restaurant and as always it does not fail to surprise you. I went with a work colleague and we choose the surprise 7 dishes menu with pairing wines. This was a bit of a mistake because it was too much food, so I recommend about 5, maximum six otherwise you can feel... More

Demo deserves it's Michelin star due to extraordinary culinary experience. We had 6 course meal with suggested wines. All dishes were delicious without too much complicateness. Brandelina rose and red wine from Italian winery owned by Finnish were brilliant wine pairings. Service was excellent and polite. Enough time to describe contents of dishes and background of wines.

My husband and I had dinner at Demo on 26 Aug 2014. Wanted to give ourselves a treat and were really excited since we've heard good reviews. The restaurant doesn't have a menu and they prefer to keep it a surprise so we went with 6 courses without knowing what was on offer. The courses that we liked were 1)... More

A lovely restaurant experience is about more than just food and while Demo´s food - that you barely have any say in - is delicious, the way they treat their clients is off-putting. When you arrive first as part of a party of six you are waved to a table. When the others arrive and politely ask what they will... More
