“Little Paris in Helsinki”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2010

When I come to Helsinki and I need to take my customer to a fine restaurant for excellent dining... OLO is the choice. There is no large selection possibility on the menu, but it varies often and you can more or less blindly chose as you will rarely be disappointed. Of course the place has it's price but you probably will not be sorry for the money after having gone through the succulent dishes...

“A shrine to the art of modern Nordic cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2010

Our four course surprise menu was simply a perfect harmony from start to finish. Actually, if I counted right, I believe it was eight courses--and already the first of the eight kind of included three in itself... so, let's not count but enjoy. Don't ask for a menu. Just say how many courses you would like. Or if you have very specific desires (or allergies), you might want to negotiate the menu with the expert staff. Words don't do justice to the experience.
