My partner and i had a one night stopover in Helsinki, were meeting a friend and decided to splash out for a nice dinner at Demo. The guys who welcomed us were lovely and looked after us all night. When we sat we were told there are no menus, just choose the number of courses and they do the rest.... More

The staff was super nice and very professional with the wines etc. One of the best dinners I've ever had. And the place was really cozy and nice, perfect for a relaxing dinner and... 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

We had 6 courses together with one complimentary from the chef. All of them were amazing, lots of fine ingredients you would have never tasted otherwise. I liked most the main course and the main desert. I especially liked the way they decorated and presented the food. It was with taste and very original. Great place, never had such an... More

What an amazing experience ... Yes it's pricey, yes there is no menu (you purchase a menu - 4,5,6, or 7 courses) and yes you will most likely need to book in advance, but its all worth it. The combination of foods, tastes and flavours were unparalleled, I have never eaten in an establishment quite like this. If you do... More

This excellent restaurant did a 2week summer "tour" in Tampere 2013 and it was a real pleasure to enjoy about great menu and wine selections, especially it's been a while since I visited the restaurant in Helsinki with business partners from Canada and US. The service and food was in exceptional level, wines matched perfectly. A visit to remember and... More

Visited Demo on business trip to Helsinki. There is no menu here, you simply select the number of courses that you want with optional wine pairings. We chose 4 courses without wine, but ordered wine separately (also no wine list). The waiter asks what type of wine you like and chooses for you - I normally like Chardonnay, but was... More
