Been wanting eat at Michelin Star and finally got around to treating myself for 51st Birthday. The wife and I has the 6 course on Summer Menu 2020 plus 1 optional dish each. Also as it was my Birthday i got very, but very delicious...Birthday cake I had a different glass of wine for most course, for each wine the bottle was shown and server would tell about the and winery it came from. Each course was served by the Chef responsible, who then give explanation of the dish, including where the food was sourced. Mostly it came from Finland. My wife did not like the Beef Tartar, but not every likes raw beef and Monkfish was too salty for her taste. We both agreed our favourite dish was the Saddle of Lamb. I really enjoyed the dining experience, which ended up being 3 hours long. Overall i gave a rating of 5, but Wife thinks it should be 4.More

We have been in a similar quality, but not official Michelin star restaurants. Kudos for having an early dinner menu on Saturday - it is possible to dine already from 16.00 Food was good, reasonably priced (102 eur for 6 courses) but a tad too...small portions in the end. By the size of food, should have been extra two courses in order to compete with other similar experiences. What could be improved is the wine/drink pairing. We opted for the full drink pairing that gave a glass of champagne (in a flute, not white wine glass!!), water, coffee and digestive for a whopping 108 eur. Should have gone just for the 4 wine pairing for 52eur. Food and service very good, little let down by some pricing and sizing.More

We booked Olo as a treat to celebrate on our honeymoon during our stay in Helsinki and having read brilliant reviews and the Michelin rating, we thought it would be an ideal place to have a treat. The restaurant is larger than I expected, neutral...décor and staff who are professional and not overbearing. We enjoyed working our way through the tasting menu, with some nice surprises along the way. Of course when a Michelin star restaurant describes something on the menu as ‘beetroot and goat’s cheese’ it is never as simple as it sounds and we found all of the dishes were presented in this way, which made the experience surprising and enjoyable. It was nice to try things we may not have had the opportunity to previously and when the dishes were served, the Chefs and waiting staff described what was on the plate. Overall a very pleasant experience.More

I've had the chef's table experience with loads of wine and champagne. All dishes looked really beautiful and most of them tasted really good too. Have to say thought that I think the place is a little overrated.

We got to sit at the chef´s taboe and Juri himeslf was serving us. It was really exceptional following everything that was going on in the kitchen and we felt like we were in the middle of the prep. My son is a young chef...and it was very inspiring for him to experience the professionalism of Olo´s crew. The food was exquisite and totally worth the price. We also took the non-alcoholic pairing and the juices were very good. If you are in Helsinki and you´re fine dining lover, this is a must visit.More

My husband and I had the most amazing meal here. The tasting menu is out of this world good, comparable with Michelin 3-star restaurants that are several times more expensive. You absolutely must do the wine pairing---generous and interesting portions that accompany the dishes perfectly....The service is impeccable, the place is both extraordinarily good and very comfortable/welcoming. The highlight of our time in beautiful Helsinki.More
