Every bite was a little bit of heaven. However, their price level is so high, you can't come here with your own pocket or you have to be very rich. Over 70 EUR for lunch for one person without any alcohol is absolutely too much. And the portions are so tiny...

This Helsinki restaurant is fantastic. A surprise menu that changes according to the availability of foodstuffs and the humour of the chef, knowledgeable staff and ingredients that you wouldn't necessarily imagine all combine to make a gastronomic experience. When I was there we ate 15 courses and drank some fantastic wine. Wandering cod from Norway, reindeer and reindeer blood black... More

We had the 17 piece tasting menu with wine and it was really worth the time and money. It takes about four hours but the food is really interesting and good.

We opted for 'the journey' which was an amazing meal of many courses. Each element was explained by the very friendly waiting staff. No idea how many courses we had as it just seemed to be continuous for the time we were there. Portion sizes were exactly right and everything was delicious. Possible to book ahead on their website and... More

Perhaps not the best but definitly the most interesting dinner I ever had. Their "journey" menu is exciting all along and is a real journey to discover new tastes and exciting food. The wines (except one Malbec wine) were really excellent and well chosen for the dish.

We took two of our Helsinki based clients, at their recommendation, to this absolutely delightful restaurant. From the first greeting through to the final draining of our port this was a truly exceptional experience. We elected to take the "journey" and what a journey it was, excellently presented food with descriptions of each course from the extremely attentive staff. I... More

We had prebooked a meal called the Journey. Very good and delicious, although perhaps the Journey a little long. Service excellent and friendly. The environment and decor very modern, clean and stylish. We had prestige wines which were fantastic and some non-Prestige which were not good at all, in our opinion. Thank you for a great New Years Eve.
