We chose Passio for our anniversary dinner and we’re not disappointed. The restaurant serves either a 3-course or 5-course set meal with the seasonal ingredients that vary with whatever was best at the grocer each day. Each course thus comes as a little surprise package...of modern European/Scandinavian cuisine. The 5-course meal was evenly paced as a 2.5 hour production that provided a wonderful anniversary memory.More

This is a good restaurant that deserves its Michelin star. The chef does aim to be creative and the staff attentive. I have an allergy to milk and the general manager came out to say that it was impossible to cook for me; I had...to assure him that it was only milk and that butter and cream were fine.More

Superb twist of Scandinavian food with European cuisine. Definitely recommend place for fine and slow dining. Glutein and dairy free options to praise!

Food was okay and wines good. Prices were way out of the range compared to quality of food, wine and beer and what else you could find from Helsinki. There was no wow factor what so ever. Service was very friendly, but I was not...asked once if I'd wanted something. Instead I had to reach out to get starter drink, wine list, wine and dessert drink. Maybe the waitress was protecting me for overpaying? Beer was 10.50 for 0,33l. Most expensive one in Helsinki for sure and nothing too special. Would not recommend.More

We had 5 course menu with wine packages. Dishes were not mindblowing but ok. Main course- Entrecote was the most poor-quality meat we have EVER had. It was full of tendons and you couldn’t eat it at all. We had gift card worth 274 euros...for our special anniversiry-evening and after the complaint we received 20 euros compensation. Only thing that we rate 10+ was our waitress, young lady who was a real professional, very kind and full of knowledge of the wines.More

The food was really good, and the service was really friendly, but we had to wait almost an hour inbetween dishes, while the next table (who got there a bit after us) got multiple dishes while we waited.

I booked here based on its Tripadvisor rating, and fact it was one of the few top-rated restaurants open between Xmas and New Year. The welcome was somewhat strange - left waiting 5-10 minutes without much acknowledgement. Decor is OK, but my table was right...by a bulky radiator which made it feel a bit cramped. Food was good, but nothing exceptional, and no “wow” factor. None of the dishes were memorable, in that sense. Compared to the likes of Natura, Farang, Olo and others where I have eaten, this was rather underwhelming. Atmosphere was not great either. Maybe the time of year, maybe the Covid-related alcohol restrictions. Maybe I just got this place on a bad day.More

The food is great, but the wait time is so long that you will never get any real experience. They said that the wait time is 3 hours, but no information about the 3 hours when I booked a table. We waitwd the first course...for 1,5 hours. Service is good, food is good, but the wait time is way too long!More

We had the 5 course Surprise Menu and it definitely was a pleasant surprise. Everything was great: the service, the food, the drinks, the ambiance. It was a fairly busy Friday night in the restaurant but our waitress had the time to explain the food...and drinks to us and answer all our questions. She was professional and friendly. The food was amazing: tasted great and looked good too. Good size portions and surprises in the menu like the chicken hearts. The wine pairings were well thought and were delicious. This was our first time in the restaurant but we will return next time we are back in Helsinki.More

I have dined at Passio restaurant on a number of occasions both on business and privately and each time the quality of the food the service and the experience has been excellent. The surprise menu is a delight and is never disappointing and the presentation...and knowledge of the staff is fantastic. I last ate there with my wife for our wedding anniversary in September and we both had a wonderful evening. I would recommend everyone to try Passio when they are next in Heksinki.More

Our experience dining at Passio was wonderful. The food was excellent. We had the five-course menu with two servings of fish (a white fish and trout), the best duck we’ve ever tasted and lamb. We recommend the five-course meal over the three-course dinner. The wine...was excellent, the cheese serving at the end very very good and the service second to none. Natalie, our waitress, was not only excellent in providing our courses but pleasantly added wonderful things about the food and the restaurant itself. The restaurant’s owner was there on a hands on basis throughout dinner to make sure everything went well. He was super pleasant and seemed attentive to all diners in the restaurant.More

I give the restaurant a high rating in food, ambience, and service. The servers are professional and exceptionally well versed in the menu offerings and pairings - they all speak impeccable English. Oddly, I can't say the same for the owner, who was there on...both nights I was there. He was unfriendly. I dined there two times in one week, three days apart. On the second night, he barked at us from behind the line to wait for the host. Later, he came over to the table next to ours (without a mask I might add) and visited with a couple in English. Yet he never even acknowledged us, even though I am sure he recognized me from the previous evening. It was bizarre. It's not like it's a big restaurant with a lot of tables. I'm not sure whether he is just anti-American or racist. My friend the second evening is Asian American. It's probably not a common occurrence for the owner of an establishment to be the sole detractor of a patron's experience. Perhaps he'd be better off staying at home.More
