This place has pretty much everything right. Beautiful building, location is superb, interior design is well done, service is very friendly, food is great. We had mushroom soup, reindeer and locally made cheeses. Everything felt really fresh and I'm glad to say that this is the most "finnish" food I've had in finer restaurants. All ingredients were the same we... More

The Nokka has changed with the time. The location by istelfs is great just beside the harbour. The menue list is small but very ok and the food is good. The portions are compared to the price small and the service slow... You need a lot of time to go to eat there.

Right in the heart of Helsinki the great place to visit. Stuff welcomes you straight at the door and leads to your place. The food we were offered was sooooo good. One of us ate menu N4 with starter, main course, "Koskenkorvan sunavihta" and desert. It was a perfect match. Koskenkorvan saunavihta is some kind of sorbet with is done... More

After my stellar meal at Kappeli a couple of nights ago I wasn't expecting to hit the gourmet jackpot again tonight. But this city seems to be a foodie's paradise. Tavinola Nokka is a wonderful restaurant with all the ingredients I love. Great location, beautiful old building, lots of candlelight. Theatrical presentation, bags of unusual and artisan produce, friendly and... More

Near the harbour and main boulvard of Helsinki Nokka Restaurant is the place to visit! Great interior done with a lot of taste for small details. And even more taste on the plate! All dishes made with passion for high quality local ingredients and served as small pieces of art. We had the 6 course set menu which was great... More

we had a group business dinner here recently and the food and service was excellent. A few of the dishes pushed my culinary comfort zone, but in a good way and no regrets! highly recommend the 9-course tasting menu w/ wine pairings ("Helsinki Menu").

I had a lovely dinner with a work colleague here, and my first taste of reindeer (I hope it wasn't Rudolf!). Lovely food, good wines, great service. Highly recommended!

This restaurant we visited on recommendation of the local friebd when asking for a good restaurant with good local food. And we got there. Though it was Tuesday, it was fully booked inside. Fortunately a small company was leaving a table at the open part so we got seated. Some 23° Centigrade, clear sky, beautiful view to the sea and... More

We picked this restaurant based on TA reviews and hotel recommendation. Unlike some, this certainly does live up to it's Fine Dining rating. Every course was carefully explained, and the recommended Wines (by the glass) complimented the food. The service matched the food - excellent. Our bill came to just under EUR200 which is towards the top end for Helsinki... More

Had dinner at Nokka recently. Nice older building with great decor with a nice view outside. We ate inside but I think they have table by the water. Not sure however. Very good service. We did the four course tasting meal. Very fresh ingredients but I did feel that the 3rd course, although beautifully presented, was not actually a "course"... More
