Great food, but a bit salty

Visited for a lunch and the service was great, the food was good but unfortunately it was a bit salty. Not inedible, but still a tad too much salt. If the chef could use a bit less salt then the place would be great!

I was there for a business dinner with 6 other people. Table was properly set, menus delivered, and time to read them over. I ordered the white fish starter, it was simply amazingly good. The presentation was perfect. Next I had the waffle, which I ordered as it seemed to be something different for an evening meal. I was not... More

We have eaten here several times, but recently the food has been far too salty. We mentioned it to the waiter the first time, they offered to make us new portions after we had eaten. Naturally we declined, not needing more food. Next time we didn't bother mentioning anymore since it started to seem like their new style. It has... More

the food here is wonderful, fresh, and prepared perfectly, and the ambience is great. This is an elegant and cozy restaurant with an extensive wine list and very friendly staff.

The first course was very plain -- just a salad with a bit of greens and asparagus - not particularly fresh or special in any way. The main course was pretty nice - pike perch, well prepared. The atmosphere was not so good, with several large groups, one with a screaming baby. I did not have a very good time.

We were having a lunch with couple of customers in restaurant Smör. Three dishes which all were terrific! Nice lay-out and absolutely delicious. The atmospere is also nice, old cellar of an electric company. Service was friendly and our waiter was taking care of us althought lunch hour was already past... If you want good food with a fairly reasonable... More

We dined here, had the 6 course menu. New one is coming out next week, so can't expect you to have the exact same, but we loved it. Everything tasted great, all was well made. Atmosphere was nice, the decor is interesting. Staff was friendly and attentive. Can't say a bad thing of our visit. Recommend highly.

We had a family dinner there and got surprise not from the menu but the service! First, when we entered, the waitress told us she did not speak Finnish well so that our kids had to communicate with her in English during dining. The foods were OK for the price but what really surprised us is we were asked to... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant, and we were positively surprised. We had the four course surprise menu, and the kitchen was able to accommodate our diet requests very well. The dishes utilized seasonal ingredients in an interesting way, and were also delicious and very beautiful. We really felt that we were experiencing food culture. Service was excellent... More

Revisited Smör and found again that the aspirations of the restaurant are high. In general everything went well, somewhat slow service at the start but when the courses of the surprise menu started to drop in the kitchen personnel showed their best. The dishes left nothing to be desired, exactly as it should be when paying the bill.
