The lunch here is always good. Genuine finnish food with a twist. At evenings it is often hard to find a table, so arrive early. They have a nice selection of beers and make really good drinks. You always get great service here. My favourite bar in Helsinki!

Nice cocktail. Particularly when you can't decide. The bar tender was great in making a gin and 'citrus' drink for me. Great end of a night

Latva is a relaxed bar to have a drink or two before a dinner in an another place, like neighbor and sister restaurant Juuri. Latva as a place is small and intimate - just perfect laucher for an evening in Helsinki.

I have just had lunch here. The quality was good and the price ok. I had a luch combined with a business meeting and there is even a quieter room available in the restaurant.

Tons of articles have been written lately on how Helsinki has gotten things sorted much in the same way that the other Nordic capitals have, foodwise and otherwise. May be, may be... All I know is that Latva, the unruly little sister of the Juuri Restaurant 50 meters down the road, is one of the coolest, most relaxed, least formal... More

Wondered past in need of caffeine. Ended ordering a local cider as well. Neighborhood atmosphere and very nice service. Coffee excellent. Cider a new experience. Recommend to all, not just for beer, even if that is the main topic. Nearby cafe stopped serving customers as it was only 10 mins to closing!

Good service, easy to drop by, take a glass of wine, challenge the impressive sommelier or eat something small & local. Nice atmosphere.
