When you go to a very good restaurant you expect the best. Not only in your plate but also in the service, the atmosphere and the attention to little details. Demo is a great combination of all of these and a welcome oasis of great service in a city not exactly well-known for great service. My wife... read more

We arrived 15 min earlier and got turned away – have never ever happened with Michelin star restaurant… ever. Usually you get seated somewhere to get class of champagne to wait but no.. go away and come back later. So we ended up standing freezing cold weather with 3-year-old daughter and moms birthday slightly taking a bad turn. Restaurant with... More

We had a lovely 10th anniversary dinner. The service was also very nice. But is lovely & nice enough for a Michelin star and the prices that come with it? Not so sure! The food was nice but not at all mind blowing or amazing. The relaxed atmosphere was awesome!

Good meal, good food but nothing special. Food is cooked to a good quality but is similar to what you'd get in most high-end restaurants. It is also slightly overpriced for what it is but if you have a spare meal and have no where to go/had everything else then it could be worth a visit.

Wish I could say we planned obsessively to dine at this Michelin star restaurant. But the truth is we stumbled in, had not idea but were game given the Michelin sticker in the window. And the evening was a blast. The experience was a mouth party in a pretty room with confident-yet-low key service. Chose the 6 course program and... More

A Michelin star and a steep price require very high value. I think the value was high, service excellen, but the dishes were a bit on the discrete side for me. The meat dish was nice, the gorgonzola ice cream was very good and also the desert. Wine pairing was excellent.

The good: amazing food and great service. The waiters are all very knowledgeable and attentive. What can be improved: We were forced to order the same number of courses. My boyfriend is bigger than me, he eats more and he wanted the 6 course menu. I was happy with the 4 course menu. However, we were told we had to... More

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

Still, girls was friendly and polite. We waited a long time before we could made a order. They don't have menus so it is surprise what is coming, ofcourse... More
