Restaurant Olo treats you to a gastronomic journey filled with Nordic influence. It's all about the best ingredients and clear, modern flavors. Naturally wine plays an integral part in the dining experience. Our cellars are filled with interesting wines, including wines that are exclusively available at Olo. In our restaurant, you can feel the passion for work and food. Everyone in Olo shares that same feeling - love for food. That love and genuine warmth we want you also to feel as our guest.

In addition to our recognition in the Michelin Guide with one star since 2011, we have also been featured on the 50 Best Restaurants -listing in Finland, on which in 2012 we were awarded with the first place.

Unexpected gem in Helsinki

My dad and I were last minute looking for a restaurant for the night and called several places before Olo, where luckily for us, they had had a cancellation and had a spot for us. Excellent service, interesting, delicious, and thoughtfully put together courses. I expressed my delight with the meal... read more

Went to Olo to celebrate a special evening. And what can I say, the entire evening lasting almost three hours was a gastronomic journey like no other. Out came the beautiful dishes one after the other accompanied by carefully explained details of the step of the journey we were to embark on! The food was as delicious as it looked.... More

Really good experience. The food (The Shorter Way tasting menu) was incredible. Coupled with fantastic service and lovey ambience. Worth every Euro.

As with our previous New Year's Eves in far flung places we found this from other reviews on the internet and what a fantastic choice. We are a family of 5 used to fine dining in Michelin star restaurants, but this was as good as, if not better than our two favourites of the Waterside Inn in Bray (Roux) and... More

If you like the dining as theatre experience then this is for you. Highly conceptualised, great food with a twist in every dish. Flavours and balance for each course worked brilliantly. Wine well thought out. You even get introduced to the bread by name :) You will love it or hate it. We loved it.

This fabulous restaurant doesn't normally cater to vegans such as myself but I asked (in advance) anyway. Their reply was that of course I was welcome. Holy moly did they rise to the task! Their chef made a multi course vegan meal for myself and a vegetarian one for my husband. The staff was knowledgeable, kind, and welcoming. Every course... More

I have never in my life experienced such perfect service. It worked like a machine. We had 18 course matka menu and almost each time a different person brought it to us. The pace of the meals was perfect and 4 hours felt like 1 hour. The food and drinks were great. Very innovative and almost all of them had... More

We went for dinner at OLO on NYE. This was our second night in Helsinki and our first night at Passio - which was rated #1 on trip advisor was a total disappointment so I wasn't sure what to expect here. The minute we walked in we were felt welcome and taken to our table. Our host for the evening... More

We had dinner at OLO during a stay in Helsinki to celebrate our anniversary. We had booked a table in advance based on our research and weren't diappointed. The fixed menu was a interesting journey, as it is named. It started with some finger food, a suprising and very sensual way to start dinner at a gourmet place. The dishes... More
