The best restaurant in Helsinki

Demo is one of the Michelin star restaurants in Helsinki. It stands out by being a bit less experimental than the other ones (in a good way) and surprises by being very casual. Do not expect overtly stiff waitresses but good friendly service. Always, take the wine pairings as well.

What to say... An amazing place. One of the best meals I have had in a long time. In fact probably among the 10 best ever...Exquisite flavour combinations, very artistic presentations on the plate, it is just heaven. Only one set "surprise" menu, changing once a week, and a choice of either 4, 5, 6, or 7 courses, with or... More

We are both foodies and enjoy tastes and fancy food. We took the six course meal. Go for the five course one. Interestingly enough we where never informed about the price and forgot to ask so the bill was a bit of a negative surprise. I do not want to spoil the food surprise by talking about the different courses... More

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 too long (in comparison to... 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
