Expensive but worth it. The food is exceptional, tasty, stimulating, interesting, well prepared and presented, surprising but always positively... Try the best wines choice, all biodynamic and organic... And excellent The service is top but still relax.

I did not know what to expect when my husband said he had booked a table at this restaurant which has a Michelin star. Nor did I know what I was about to eat since the kitchen likes to keep the surprise and also because it relies on local and seasonal products. The only thing I knew was that he... More

Excellent food and service! We realized it's a Michelin 1-star restaurant afterwards. One of the best restaurants we've visited in the whole week. Also good value for the price.

What a fabulous and well planned tasting menu. However may I add that this glowing review is in large part to our excellent server Melanie who was not only professional but also personable and engaging!! She answered all of our questions knowledgeably and enthusiastically. The other staff we encountered were less informed and at the same time dismissive. So if... More

For dinner you have one set mystery menu. There are several small dishes. You have no idea what do you get next. Some traditional Forgotten finnish dishes like" Mannapuuro" are elevated to new level.. Great innovations. We enjoyed a lot. There is a bit cheaper ( 66 Euros) sampling . menu too . You will not miss much and are... More

This was the culinary highlight of my recent trip to Finland. Olo is reputedly the best restaurant in Finland (Michelin and the White Guide both seem to think so anyway) and I'm not about to disagree with them after an incredible 18-plate meal on a Friday night in July. We’d debated in advance whether to give it a try given... More

We were a big group, and even though I don't have any single complaints, the meal felt lacking in a way. The wine pairing (all wines made by female winemakers) felt more like a gimmick and something they wanted as a theme, rather than what would match the food (we went for the "premium" wine pairing). Food was good, even... More

Although this was the only Michelin-starred restaurant we visited in the city, it was in some ways, our most disappointing experience. The food was actually quite innovative and quite good. Dishes included lightly-steamed zucchini with goat cheese, pumpkin seeds and fennel followed by a taste of tomato water with fennel oil; phyllo with egg yolk custard; perch/pike with mushroom ravioli...
