Went there with Finnish business partners who had a blast seeing me having a local shot as an aperetif and then indulging on reindeer (first carpaccio, then a steak). It was very good indeed.

We have eaten many times here, now Easter time, must say first ; nice atmosphere but people make the Kosmos, Customers and staff. Staff is formally if you like so, but uncomplicated –do not be a snob. Reasonably priced high-quality of the food, in the middle of Helsinki. I start w fish eggs Blin, which I love, main course Chateaubriand,... More

Even if treated as kind of cultural icon and historic artefact by colleagues who recomennded the place I would consider it just as curious trip 30 years back both in service style and culinary mastery. The service was slow and a bit of arrogant, and as there were some very loud parties celebrating, it was not possible to converse without... More

The interior was not nice. It was such a sad place to visit. We had lamb which was cooked rare. The most boring finish anti pasti - See attached photo. On top of that we had to pay 2,5 Euro just for our coats in the wardrobe.

Was taken there as a treat for my birthday, excellent service, beautiful restaurant retaining all of its old charm and deco. The food was excellent, so was the wine and service was friendly and prompt. There was no charge for the cloakroom contrary to what others have posted. I would love to go back and sample more of the menu!

Kosmos is one of old restaurants in Helsinki. Good food. Service if sort of old fashioned and might feel like a bit stiff for a foreigner. Some classic Finnish dishes are offered. Good experience as always!

I shall get the bad bit over and done with first. 2 Euros 50 cents PER coat to be kept for you whilst eating here. That's got to be some kind of record! We visited here again just before Christmas and the place was heaving however we were found a table in reasonable time. The service at time was slow... More

We were lucky to get a table at Kosmos on a Saturday evening without a reservation, probably it is a good idea to book a table. We were received by a friendly staff, we felt at home in a dining room filled with celebrating guests that once in a while would break into singing Russian solo songs. The decor is... More

Old world charm - excellent service (including getting a table on New Year's eve) and very central location only added to pleasure in consuming the delicious food - recommend the perch with lemon potato terrine
