About once in a year when visiting Helsinki, we want to spend one evening at this restaurant. The service was this time very good, not always so attentive, but this time very smooth indeed. The menu had new items, of which I chose the dessert, creme brulee and sorbet (fabulous). There was no... read more

Personal restaurant with tasty food - also caters okay for vegetarians. The decor is comfy, a bit like Russian style. The service is professional. If you want to make a booking you may call ahead and ask if they have live music that night - it really adds up nicely to the dinner experience. I recommend.

Decided to try bear and this is one of the few restaurants in town that offered it. We started with flavored vodka - orange and pepper. Both were subtlety flavored and good. Then had the borscht which was outstanding. Made like my grandparents -- lots of beets and some meat. It also came with sour cream. Then had the whitefish... More

Loved the decor, the live music and the food. Borsh was nice and blini was big. Main course was well presented with plenty of explanations and sides. The only thing the fillet mignon I've ordered was not so warm and maybe a bit on the expensive side. Would be back? Maybe

This is pretty unique concept. An Russian restaurant only with cabinets. If you look at the pictures here you can get pretty good impression what to expect. Main taste is sour as it is with Russian kitchen. If you like it, you like this place! Music performance was a nice surprise!

If you are from England or the US then there are some great places to eat in Helsinki that are different from the Norm, however Saslik is different again. A Russian restaurant with bags of character and atmosphere. The Starters are great, the Mixed starter gives you a good selection but try the Blinis which are really good. The main... More

This restaurant should be rated higher (now 105th). Service was nice, helpful and cozy. We took Zakuska (lot of russian dishes) and Iivana's sword for main cuisine. It was fantastic Absolutely at my top 3 of Helsinki restaurants.
