Nice trendy restaurant in Helsinki

Nice place in a nice neighborhood. Went on a Tuesday night. Located in the corner of the block so large windows add to the nice atmosphere. I immediately liked the place, maybe it was that the (European) menu was perfectly in line with the what I was in the mood for that night. (Sometimes... read more

We arrived at our hotel late, ventured out in the neighborhood, and by chance ran into Maxill as most other restaurants were either closed or wrapping up. We were pleasantly surprised at the wonderful food and warm service. The "smoked salmon" plate, perfectly cooked, warm but almost raw inside, just like I like it. The little accompanying spinach, perfect new... More

A cosy, frendly and unpretentious small restaurant close to the city center and the jugend quarters. It's located at one of the nicest shopping streets of the city. Nice menu, delicious food and visited by ordinary people from the neighbourhood. Everything is just about right with this restaurant, that I visit as often as I can thanks to their nice... More

We 5 ladies just yesterday dined at Maxill in Korkeavuorenkatu. And we probably should have shared our food to each other. Everyone's own dish looked and tasted good, but also our friends dish looked delicious. 3 of us ate shrimp tagliatelle and two of us salmon with avocado. I ate salmon and it was really nicely done and tasty (and... More

I was having drinks with foreign business contacts by the sea. We decided to extend the evening and have dinner too but obviously had no reservation. Walking up the Korkeavuorenkatu from the marina, four restaurants were fully booked. Maxill was next up the street and luckily had space. We got a really nice window table. One of my guests ordered... More

We had an apartment a couple blocks from Maxill and stopped in one day when looking for a late lunch. Service was friendly, the lunch specials tasty and the outdoor seating was pleasant, if a bit close to the street. Simple food (at least what we had) done well with no fuss.

Visited Maxill tonight as we were passing by, I had high expectations having eaten there years ago and been impressed but..... very disappointed..The salmon started was fresh enough but the avocado pretty underripe, only when I looked at the name if the dish on the bill did I realise it should have had a hit of lime with the piripiri...

My friends and I visited this restaurant one afternoon. They serve lunch until 4 pm. We had table reservation at 4 pm but we were quarter of an hour early. The staff was very welcoming and we managed to get the table after couple of minutes waiting. The waitress offered us lunch list and we all found what we wanted... More

I´ve been eating here for several times during the years. Very good cuisine. They really make an effort to serve fresh, high quality, often seasonal food. A nice and cozy atmosphere. I never was even slightly disappointed in the food.
