The food was great, unfortunately the rest of the experience was a big let down. Poor and inattentive service.

Had a wonderful early lunch here a few weeks ago. Even during the summer holiday season, we were seated immediately without a reservation. Often something I skip or ignore at most restaurants, their bread was to die for. It incorporated spelt and caraway beautifully. Each dish was a work of art. I would highly recommend the gazpacho!

Pushed by cuisine writers at the big Helsinki papers, this place got a kick-start. Despite being set in a rather plain-concrete convention and concert building, this is one of the best in town. You'll find the place just across the modern Alexander Bridge. Menus are not too pricey, despite the food being of high quality and very special in its... More

Fabulous food, great service. For us, the dessert was a bit too sweet (even though we are definitely a group of sugar-addicts). With Sinne's prices, I would have expected a perfect balance in flavors, but the dinner was still extremely good. The location is surprising (and not necessarily in a good way) but the interior is nice.

After about ten visits to Sinne a review: Sinne is the only real fine dining restaurant in Porvoo and it shows. The menu is simple and safe. The quality of food continuously on high level. Wine menu rather broad and the tasting suggestions well selected. On this latest visit we all selected the Paul Svensson menu with matching wines. The... More

Good quality food with well placed wine list. Service is professional and helpful. (Don't afraid to ask help by gettting right wine for the right food) Only negative thing might be view that is not best that Porvoo can offer. If possible, try tuesday evening "Blind Night". Dinner is served "blind". What you get is suprise and you pay what... More

Local, mostly biofood, genuine mixture of gourmet and homemade. Design is bit plain, but very unique. First hour in Taidetehdas parking hall is free of charge.

Very well prepared even aesthetically very classy . The fact that the ingredient's are super-fresh and local, make's all the difference.And the menu is made properly, meaning, a good quality restaurant is recognized among many thing's but the menu should not be a terrible puzzle and it isn't .It's pro all the way with a handful of dishes that all...
