I stopped at several restaurants while in Finland and there was never a bad experience. When I heard this spot was closing I had to give it a review. What ever this chef decides to do, it will be excellent. I wish him well.

Unfortunately this was our first night in Helsinki and we were suffering from jet lag, so we don't remember individual courses, but we did the 6 course tasting (which seemed a lot more than 6 courses). Everything was delicious and the wine paired excellently. The staff was A-plus, attentive to every need.

My partner and I were celebrating her birthday chez Dominique. It was such a wonderful treat. From the very moment we arrived to the time we were handed our cloths to enter the Finnish winter night. The food was excellent as well as the service. We were recommended a wine menue that superbly supported our seven course dinner. I do... More

Visited Chez Dominique this Spring for the second time after a long break from my first visit. I was totally disappointed in the quality and the tiniest portions ever. I have been dining in several restaurants with this fine dining concept in Helsinki as well as in other countries so I do understand that portions are small. However, I find... More

Yes, it must be good because it has earned two Michelin Stars. And it is, but... We had a seven-course dinner. Portions are tiny but we had several 'greetings' from the kitchen. So, the total amount of portions was thirteen plus tasty something for bread. It was a very good deal because we had it as 'pay one, have two'.... More

C D continues to be the one and only Two Michelin Star restaurant in Helsinki. And to make justice, it requires much more ambition to get and keep the two stars in Finland compared to any two stars in France. You better add at least half or whole star to outside France restaurants to make any comparisions. Anyway, finally the... More
