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

Good location,short walk from Kauppatori(main Market Square) and right next to sea front. Stylish decor and friendly service. But all that comes with a price and this time BIG price. Although Helsinki is quite expensive city, it was hard to understand that normal coffee was 5.30€ and tea 5.20€!

I have to start with the wines. We selected a wine package for Helsinki menu. First wines were Riesling from New Zealand and Rioja wine made from Mazuelo grape. Those wines were quite Ok. For cheese, selected wine was from Czech Republic white wine made of Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Noir. Interesting in this wine was that it was made... More

For the price of 30 euro, one should get a warm plate and hot food. Waitress tried her best, but as the food was put back to the owen it dried out. Got free coffee and tea as compensation.

We ate on a calm evening, the timing of the dishes was good (6 course dinner). The main course was filling (elk). One of the wines was a Finnish berry based wine which was a unique experience as well. Satisfying experience, great staff knowledge and relaxing atmosphere. Also the kitchen is visible which is a nice aspect.

Nokka has been our favourite restaurant in Helsinki for a long time...... But not any longer. We liked the food, modern interpretation of Finnish cuisine, and the impeccable service. Now the menu seems to lack innovation and does not stand out, it is good, but nothing above average for a restaurant of this price. But what real disappoints is the... More

Not overally familiarly with Helsinki restaurants, a client recommended this as her favorite. Great impression from the location (even at night) and the quaint interior and glass wall separating the kitchen. I thoght the waiter was going a bit OTT with the "stories" about the beer, food and wine but this is part of their "angle." I also thought the... More

On our city visits we try to visit at least one notable restaurant. Choosing this place was a mistake. Despite few customers, which should have had alarm bells ringing, the service was slow and unprofessional. The location is great, right on the waters edge. The interior has a glass wall into the kitchen giving the impression the cooks have something... More
