Food theater: fun surprise

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... read more

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.

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

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 offer three types of menus. The food is unforgettable. The prices are very reasonable. It is evident that there is passion behind.

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
