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.

If you are keen on food, have a discerning palate and can afford the sticker price of this tasting menu then Olo is a "must do" destination. The journey menu is excellent, the palate sensations well diversified and the taste build up impeccable. The upmarket wine journey is a disappointment when compared to the quality of the food presented. The... More

The tasting menu just keeps surprising me how well it matches with the prestige drink selections. At the moment this is the number one place for me to get the best food experience in Helsinki.

Booked Olo for husbands 60th birthday and did not disappoint - even an extra dessert was provided to celebrate. One of the best, most unpretentious Michelin star restaurants we have eaten in. Service was welcoming, friendly and helpful providing lots of detail about each course of the set menu. Really like the option of choosing the wine packages instead of... More

The food was amazing and innovative. When we sat on the table, there was a sour dough breathing and in the middle of the dinner, they would take the dough to the oven. The rest of the meal was amazing. The wine pairing can be improved. Unfortunately we did not sit in the main dining room, so the atmosphere was... More

We had a lovely Christmas lunch for six persons. The lunch menu was set, but pre informed food restrictions were taken into consideration. All four dishes (and two small extra bites) were really tasty, as was the champagne and wines. The service was nice and competent. The restaurant is quite pricy, but well worth it for a speciall ocation.

The atmosphere was nice; a perfect follow up from the staff. The possibility of having 3 or 4 glasses of wine instead of a full wine-packet should be adopted by other restaurants. The food consisted of real finnish food as one like to think of it. Made into the best tastes ever. The restaurant is highly recommended,- but the best... More
