Amazing 4 course dinner for the wife's birthday. Staff are very friendly and quite knowledgable when it comes to their food and wine. The food was extremely good and well presented, and the wine pairings were perfect. The inside of the building is spectacular and provides a very warm and comfortable atmosphere. It's in a great location at the waterfront.... More

Nokka's rustic setting is wonderful, as is their cuisine. The food is of local produce with a twist. I enjoyed every bit of our dinner immensely. The service was also very friendly and informative. Highly recommended restaurant.

We had a light lunch here. So delightful and service came with a big smile. We could see the kitchens which were busy and pristine. Great quality - would love to have time to enjoy a full meal there.

The apex of the culinary discipline. They grow their own herbs outside the front door(see photograph) and harvest them just minutes before incorporating them into works of art. Superb soups, salads, mains, desserts served with caring class in a charming well-appointed set of dining rooms. Location is a modest walk from most of Old Town Helsinki. Think all the taxi... More

Really lovely fish meal and apple dessert. Reindeer tartar was not for me but the fish was really top notch. Good attentive service.

A quality restaurant with an excellent menu. Service is professional but it takes a while to eat the full tasting menu so be prepared to spend a couple of hours here. Great wines and SUPERB food. I especially loved the blueberry desert.

Located off the beaten path, we found Nokka by mistake looking for the path up to one of the churches new Market Square. Right on the harbor, we sat outside and had one of our best dining experiences in Helsinki. Excellent service. Patient. Well paced. Flexible. Adaptable. Fluent English. We started with a few cocktails. I had a local gin... More

Really nice environment, down at the docks, by the water. Very professional staff, very knowledgable and very supporting. The food was great and the suggested wine was even better. If you are up for fine dining this is one of the places to go in Helsinki.

Nokka restaurant is located on a scenic place at Katajanokka Helsinki. The terrace is lovely at sunny summer evening. Still the inside restaurant is even better with a special atmosphere. The place is roomy and silent but still cozy - opposite to many so called trend restaurants. We had the 6 course Helsinki menu with a split wine package. The... More
