Restaurant Olo treats you to a gastronomic journey filled with Nordic influence. It's all about the best ingredients and clear, modern flavors. Naturally wine plays an integral part in the dining experience. Our cellars are filled with interesting wines, including wines that are exclusively available at Olo. In our restaurant, you can feel the passion for work and food. Everyone in Olo shares that same feeling - love for food. That love and genuine warmth we want you also to feel as our guest. In addition to our recognition in the Michelin Guide with one star since 2011, we have also been featured on the 50 Best Restaurants -listing in Finland, on which in 2012 we were awarded with the first place. Welcome to enjoy!

Perfection!

We celebrate my birthday days before and decided to go to Olo. And it was perfect choise! Service was fast, friendly and attend to their job. Very professional sommelier, who told nice stories of wines. Waiters raised up your serviettes from the floor if it was fallen down. Food was amazing. We... read more

Fantastic food and good service. The place is not too big so the athmosphere is very warm. The place is in downtown and easy to go by foot.

Excellent experience. Food is not only delicious but as well sophisticated: in the way they mix ingredient and present the dishes. All the favors melt in you mouth making dining here a real experience. Waiters are super polite and very careful on your needs. Very good selection of wines and pairing with the menu.

We were four person and had the tasting menu with drinks. Food was ok but the service was pretty rude. Definitely not worth of the price.

I went last week for a lunch in Olo. 4 course lunch for 42 EUR where you see nice small plates one after each other. It was very good but maybe a bit small portions. No juice pairing proposed (at least not for lunch)

Visited Olo in March. We went with the full Journey menu, and I think it was well worth it. It really is a journey, through the Finnish tastes. The food was amazing, novel combinations and fantastic flavors. Best was the reindeer tartar, outstanding. Also really great was the celery ice-cream with vinegar sauce. Portions were small, as expected, but through... More

We have eaten in some excellent places but this was a really fantastic experience. The daily menu is called the journey and is very apt. We had 22 dishes over the course of 3 hours and I am usually described as fussy but I loved 21 of them. It is an experience for all of the senses. It starts with... More
