What for a dinner.... We decided to celebrate New Year's Eve in Helsinki and booked a table for 4 at Olo. We didn't excpect it, but we were welcomed in French by a friendly blond waitress who took care of us all night. We choose the Journey Menu with not less than 17 courses. Simply delicious.... We had a view... More

Well prepared food in innovative taste combinations. The wine was a great match too. They even made me a nice glutenfree bread. They really cater well for dietary restrictions and allergies.

On a family trip to Helsinki, we decided to give our kids their first true gourmet restaurant experience and booked the shorter "Retki" menu on New Years Eve. Great service, inventive and wonderful presentation. Unique flavors, like spruce sprout ice cream with pine bark crumble! Loved it, and although not every flavor was a hit with kids they were awed...

Traveled across the globe and spent 8 days in Helsinki literally to eat here. It did not disappoint. Flawless food and service. Classy space and convenient location. We did the full tasting, full wine pairings...whatever they offered us, we took it, and we weren't disappointed. Great job team!

I had very highe expectations as I walked in for a lunch meeting... The restaurant is well appointed, in a old heritage building. The layout is anything but typical... small rooms with 3-4 tables which is really good for meetings as the noise does not carry and you get a sense of privacy! We had the Christmas menu at lunch....and... More

The place has a Michelin star, and not without a reason. Everything is flawless here from food to service. We took their "Matka" (Journey) -menu and it took 5.5 hours to complete with wines. Tastes were excellent, but ofcourse, this is supergourmet -type of place, so the portions were the size of a coin usually. If you want to enjoy... More

Service was excellent, and the sommelier offered to open any bottle and sell it by the glass. Brilliant. The rainbow trout was absolutely magnificent, as was the pork belly. The only dissapointment was the reindeer tartar, which was surprisingly tasteless. Definitely worth a visit and one of the best spots in Helsinki!

I went here with my best friend on a saturday night in July. The ambience was great. We had the big menu. It was 80 EUR for 8 courses and it was very well made. I have had dinner at different nordic inspired restaurants but I still remember this one well. Their own bread, the lamb, some ingredients were just... More
