A delicious Saturday night dinner, we chose the 6 course tasting menu, which at €78 for 2 people was really good value, both for Helsinki & for the quality of the food. The portions weren't huge, but the flavours were all superb & presentation was excellent, and we did not go away hungry. A restaurant to be recommended for a... More

Nice and easy atmosphere, easy to reach by tram or walking from the city center. The starter, beef carpaccio with a scent of truffels was mind blowing, the main dish, stuffed portobello mushroom was the best vegetaria dish I ever had.

They call it brunch but it was a set lunch for Sunday. Apart from that the food was excellent and the price reasonable. The atmosphere was good and the service reasonable. We gladly recommend this place for Sunday lunch.

We dined here for the fourth time and it was as good as before. The food is well prepared and exciting and the service professional, friendly and relaxed without being too intruding.

The waitering staff is completely improfessional and the rudest I've ever come across in Finland. The portions looked nice but the Iberico ham on my starter was rotten, the steak on the main was over cooked when we asked for medium and the waiter just said that it's not and walked away! I was appalled by the standards of this... More

I was staying just down the road from this brasserie for the past 3 weeks. First we went due to its proximity but we went back because the food and the choice of food is fantastic. I'm still tasting the beetroot sorbet which was like tasting magic. I won't say any more as it's always nice to be pleasantly surprised.... More

We have been living in Helsinki for 18 months and are always looking for new food experiences. We have walked past this Brasserie on many occasions. Last weekend when the sun was shining, we decided to take a table outside. The staff were VERY friendly. We have a baby which sometimes causes restaurants to alter their normal service. Everything here... More
