Came back after a bad experience 2 years ago. Now it was a positive dinner. Service had improved, good starters and decent main course. The menu was a bit narrow but we found our meals. However, The interior needs a quick update.

The food was good, steak cooked to perfection that just melted in your mouth and vegetarian food was good too. All the food was good size portions. Very nice and enjoyable experience. Well worth making the trip to visit.

There are a lot of restaurants in Helsinki to choose from, but this is the one that comes to my mind always when there is a special day coming or something. Grotesk is a fairly expensive restaurant but absolutely worth it. The service is great...More
