The food never fails to please here. The choice is simple: 3 or 5 courses, with matched wines or not (of course you can choose a wine if you want) We had the 3 course option, which is supplemented with an amuse-bouche course, and a pre-dessert course. We had a wine pairing: Riesling with the fish course didn't really work;... More

Of the wines only one stuck out, with one being pointless and the others being again quite nice. This is to say that there's... More

Slush at the end of April? - Yes that's Finland, the land of "5 degrees at Christmas, Easter, Labour day and probably also Midsummer" (luckily + degrees, Celsius).

Delight!!! If you are not afraid that they will bring something not according to your mood, then safely go here. The mysterious menu is double more interesting than the traditional one. Everything was beyond praise, bravo to the chef! Thank you!

Both very tasty and with a tantalizing composition. The restaurant has a... More

Passio served us business dinner for 4 persons on a Monday evening. Excellent tastes with positive surprise every time in their style of 5 course menu. Nice atmosphere for discussion also. Not too loud or too large. They import their wines matching to meals. Everyone of us was happy about this first visit of ours. Quite sure this will not... More
