Very cozy place with a nice ambience and great staff. We had very high expectations based on previous reviews. The staff explained the concept, the menu and they were very attentive. The beer and wine was great, as were the drinks. The menu was made...from rather basic ingredients and left us with a somewhat divided experience - some of it was very nice but some of the Finnish influences were perceived as less successful. Taste is subjective but we would have preferred a stronger italian influence.More

This small fine dining bistro is located in the very heart of Helsinki. The kitchen is a cross-Italian-Finnish, very innovatively mixing ingredients in its delicious four-course menu. You only need to select the drinks, and you have three different drink menu selections available, suited for...the menu. Nice, warm, cosy and welcoming atmosphere. Warmest recommendations!More

We had reserved a table, and had a set menu with four courses. I had a wine pack, while my partner had a “surprise pack” that consisted of wine, beer and drinks. Both the food and drinks were excellent, and perfectly paired. The service was...great. Would definitely recommend!More

We had the five courses menu with pairing wines and everything was just perfect, including service and ambience. The place is always booked out so reservations should be made with ample notice; we reserved 3 weeks before.

Het was in een woord een culinaire verrassing, it was in one word a culinair surprise. We ordered the 5 course menue and the wine arrangement. Without knowing this restaurant was ranked so high I had a fantastic evening!

My first visit here was unforgettable. We reserved table two weeks before visiting and it was last table for this weekend. So if you plan to visit there, book table early enough. Place is small, cozy, customers dressed mostly elegant/casual. Atmosphere warm and personnel nice....From kitchen we heard italian conversation, but waitresses were from Finland. We took 5 course menu with matching wines. It was very good combination. Beef and dessert were those what I liked most, but everything was very well done and so good. They told us that menu changes quite often, maybe once a month, so we need definitely go there again and see what new they can offer to us.More

The proprietary glögi is superb. Owned & operated by friendly folk! Locals know to dine here. Convenient to the Esplanade. A prix fixe menu that won’t disappoint; let Toca choose.

Compared to other Michelin listed restaurants, portion served by Toca was relatively bigger. My wife and I tried the 5-course tasting menu on Finland Independence Day. We managed to book a table for 2 just one night before but only after 8pm. The beef tartar,...salmon and risotto were good and the reindeer was the best among all we tried in week in FinlandMore
