A hidden gems in the heart of Helsinki.

You might be passing zillion times close to the Kosmos ravintola w/o realizing the presence of this ex.tempore restaurant. This place has been stuck in the mid century in term of decoration, menu, service. All in the good sense. It is like entering into a film from the 50's. We had blinis and... read more

The food is decent and tasty. The portions are ok, but hardly a feast. The décor and ambiance are supposedly artsy and chic, but I wasn't too impressed. Prices are mid-high. Perhaps I am too much of a philistine. Meh!

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel as it was close by & highly rated Finnish cuisine. It was a truly wonderful meal beginning with the smoked scallops (WOW!) as a starter & then the delicious grilled fillet of Lavaret with fried Jerusalem Artichoke and Spinach. My partner ordered the fillet of reindeer which he totally enjoyed. Our... More

Went here for dinner with my local colleagues. They told me this is a place to see and to be seen. The place has a nice and friendly atmosphere. We had some typical local dishes and the food was ok, not super special. We did have a very nice evening.

Finnish traditional food served in a traditional family-owned place. Previously you met there just cultural people, now even more business lunch attendants. Good location near Stockmann department store.

Decided to have a bit better lunch in bit high class environment. Our choise was Kosmos. Kosmos is not a really high-class place, but the atmosphere remind good-old days. White table clothes, good service, ... Food was definitely worth of money. Dishes were basic, nothing fancy cooking, but with taste. I enjoyed fish which they prepared glutein free, also fresh...

so, the food is really nothing special, but good enough - very local in style. But it is the history of the restaurant that gathers crowds... this used to be, and partly still is, the meeting-point of people working in the Arts sector. So you really can meet contemporary (and older!) artists here!

Came here with our hosts and while the food was excellent it did seem a bit on the expensive side compared to other restaurants we have eaten in. The service was a tad on the slow side and the place was very noisy but having said that it was extremely busy. On a quieter night I'm sure the service would... More
