We found Wellamo through tripadvisor and we went. It was a good choice. Dishes were big, and were very good prepared. Atmosphere inside was cosy and waitress was so kind and pleasant. P.S. prices are a bit high (like everywhere in Helsinki), but in any case quality and quantity deserve it. We advice it!

The restaurant is small, one room, wooden walls, few tables. Stepping in feels like stepping back in time of a few decades. Genuine atmosphere and well prepared food. No frills in the menu: traditional food, with a russian flavor. The menu had some interesting hits, like asparagus with false morons cream, pelmeni, Novgorod stew (slowly cooked elk, lamb and rabbit... More

Rare find; a traditional lamb and baltic herring place has been like this since 70's. And surrounded by the most beautiful jugend streets of Helsinki.

I used to visit this small restaurant often when I worked close by. Nowadays it is more like once or twice a year but the foodis always great! The menu is sort of Finnish (in my mind maybe with a French twist). The portions are big enough, made from fresh ingredients and very tasty. Try the pelmens, fish meals or... More

Atmosphere Great original Finnish. You see local older artistic people there. The building could use some renovation but maybe that is part of the charm. Food Lovely! homemade Russian Lamb Pelmens were nicely rustic with lovely saffron sauce and the bouillabaisse was to die for! And the bread they give for starters - could have bought it home!

We found Wellamo near our hotel in Katajanokka and went there for our first dinner in Helsinki. Just what we wanted: quiet, good service, outdoor seating, good food and reasonable prices.

Small restaurant a little outdated but with very good food. The service was quick and good. The food very good and the price is reasonable for being in Helsinki. The aspargus with morel sauce and potatos was delicious to start with. The lamb with red sauce was an excellent main course. The ginger ice cream with maple sauce was very... More

Food here were excellent, I was very pleased with it. Unfortunately cannot say same about service. Late Saturday, only customers left were me and my partner and we heard waitress saying to chef, that it's annoying to stay at work just for two people and it's not good for business either. They were kind of rushing us out. (Closing time... More

Went to Ravintola Wellamo with a large group and so our dinner was prebooked. I understand that large groups are a challenge to restaurants but that's no excuse for serving terrible food. Our starter consisted of a few lettuce leaves, slices of tomato and and cucumber, one sundried tomato and a slice of water melon. Main course was bland chicken... More
