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

After reading various reviews, we made reservations. Our waitress was so inept and kept leaving us for huge amounts of time before ordering, after ordering, during the meal, and after the meal. It seemed that she forgot to turn in our order(we had early reservations so there weren't many people in the restaurant). We kept having to go to another... More

Nokka is found by the main harbor and boasts organic and local vegetables, fish and meat. We had the 6 course "Helsinki" meal with suggested wine pairings and enjoyed the dinner, the explanations of each delectable dish, and the wine. A good investment of time and money for a relaxed yet luxurious night on the town.

This restaurant is one of the best places I've ever eaten! Very nice atmosphere and location; the service is friendly, attentive and discret. We started with a Finnish chamapagne, which hasn't been my favorite. As starter I took the mixed plate with all the different starters of the restaurant. This plate is unforgettable: some rendeer meet, a small soup and... More

I have had dinner in restaurants all over the world but I think I spent more money here than any other restaurant I've been to. It was good but it could have been so much better. I notified the restaurant in advance I was coming there with my wife to celebrate her birthday. They did not make any effort to... More

I chose this restaurant because it is open on Mondays. It was chosen as one of best restaurants in Helsinki in 2012. Its interior is well-designed and it is one of the most beautiful restaurants in Helsinki. It has also good wine list if compares to many other Helsinki restaurants.Though, the wines of this gourmet place are not cheap. They... More

I do not believe that I have ever been treated too in such an appalling way. We went to this restaurant, which is part of the Royal Group, nothing regal about the service. This is the second of their restaurants that I have been too, the other the Elite, and it was a similar story there. Perhaps its the training??... More
