Nokka specializes in Finnish delicacies from small, organic producers. If you are interested to experience something authentically Finnish this is your place. Mind you, it is a rather expensive place and more in the fine dining category: our bill was 170 euro/person! Safe place to bring your business partrners or your significant other to a special evening. Service is cordial... More

I met a client here for dinner, his suggestion. We thoroughly enjoyed the dinner. We were the first to taste the new menu, just updated that day. The smoked Rainbow Trout appetiser was the winner! absolutely delicious. Main course of Reindeer with an excellent sauce and mashed potatoes & mushrooms was very nice. Cheese platter, not really for me, Cheese... More

Helsinki menu and the wine menu were great. Service was a bit slow, maybe because the place was full, but otherwise good. Location is great and the decor is really nice.

Had a great experience at Nokka. It was my fourth visit to Helsinki in as many years and I have never been disappointed by any of the restaurants that I tried. We arrived early and had a wheat-based Finnish beer – rather yeasty but very tasty. For starters I had the “Suomi Finland” or as the waitress put it, “Finish... More

I am from Helsinki and this was the worst price/value restaurant that I have ever eaten in Helsinki. They offered us a set menu, 66 euros per person for the dishes and 44 euros for the wine per person. The starter was herring, literally taken from a glas jar and the main course was duck like in any Chinese restaurant.... More

Really enjoyed our dinner and thanks to the Nokka team. Third time I have visited in Helsinki and I love the location the food and the wine list. Granted it is expensive but dining on a trip is always about experiencing something authentic and well prepared. That sums up our dinner. Not sure I would eat it every night but... More

On the quay just behind the Russian cathedral we came across Nokka - and liked everything about it. The interior, the outside seating and the food. And a very kind and helpful staff. All at reasonable prices - what more can you ask for?

On our first day in Helsinki we were looking for a good restaurant. The majority closed their kitchens at 9.30pm but Nokka was still open. We had a lovely table outside at the water front. The service was a little chaotic but the food quality made up for this. What a lovely food with great basic ingredients and beautifull seasoning.... More

I had the best meal I'd had at Nokka. The food and service were perfect. I chose one of the set Helsinki Menus but without the wine package. The waiter kindly advised me which Finnish beers would go with the courses. I really appreciated the infirmation he gave me on the provenance of the different foods and beers. I was... More
