The restaurant is good although oriented to the high level. Dont' go there if you just want to eat. Go there if you want to enjoy food and selected wines. For special dinners..

Very cool meal experience. We ordered the 5 course meal. The menu changes every night, and you never know what you will eat until the food comes to the table. Each course is paired with its own unique wine to maximize the flavors. 5 courses, 5 bottles of wine. Each course was unique and went perfect with the sine. Will... More

I had the 3 course menu (fish) and it was very tasty, I liked the wine too. The service was very good and the waiters spoke English very well. The portions were small for my standards ( I eat a lot) but for most of the people I was with, it was just enough. I would go back again.

Attended a beer tasting with some tasty snacks. This place you can truly call a gesture pub. They have wide selection of beers from microbreweries around Finland.

Went out with a friend for a chat and a pint: Would you like to try some small Finnish brewery beers, he asked. I would and we did but only had one and tasted of his too. Gustaw Wasa is a stylish place in a converted cellar: very atmospheric and enjoyable! We haven't eaten here but there was a group... More

Tasting courses are diverse, creative, and well paired with wines and unique Finnish tastes. Service is disciplined and attentive, dishes tasty but to the point and artfully presented. Nice way to splurge as a large group if you are so inclined, and if so, take your time and enjoy the experience. This restaurant is not for the rushed or impatient.
