Monday this week I went there with my daughter to eat menu, two for one offer. So we didn't have to pick up the same menu, 50% discount for each, that was really good, instead "we offer the cheapest"-style. Menu's were very well built up, even references for the best wine to go with it. They seem to have good cellar and knowledge of wines. My pork fillet was over-grilled outside, still pink inside. Daughter's chicken breast was melting in the mouth. Roasted potatoes--I could have ordered one kilo of them! Best creme brulé ever eaten! (believe me, eaten a couple....) With no boubt daughter got a new portion of ice cream, if the bisquits had some peanuts in it. We even had the meat in doggy bag with us to the cat. Only disturbing factor was the grill fume, wich came to the restaurant side. Otherwise very elegant ,decotarated with minimalistic taste ,small and cosy.In busy times I can think that the serving time suffers. Reservation is probably needed .Bonus: You can order Theatre Menu, or more, in advance and get a free taxi to your show!! Very good menu opportunities, recommend!

One of the nicest restaurants in Helsinki: cosy, good food and not too big - a feel of personal service

We visited the restaurant twice. First just 2 of us and had a quite nice dinner. Unfortunately we visited a second time with a group of 8 and that destroyed our oppininnion. Restaurants owner had a group of his friends visiting. They were allways serviced first, wine was not freely choised "due to groups" . Most dissapointing was the level of food for so "large" group. Restaurant has been appointed to top 10 of Helsinki but second visit ended our visits there.

Good food, decent wines. Bouillabaisse was really great (not the way you have it in Marseille but you'll won't be disappointed). Defenitely, this place has it's own lively atmosphere, busy, slightly upscale but still highly enjoyable. If you are looking for a gourment evening or a nice place for the first date - this restaurant is perfect for both. Service was great also and the host himself was very helpful with the menu and wines. Overall it was not cheap (you should count on 70+ euros/person for the starter/main/wine/dessert set) but believe me, it worths every penny.

First the external elements: the location of this restaurant is great, the interior at the restaurant is nice, but garderobe is too small. And the ventilation is disaster: we visited the restaurant when it was quite full. And there were - in the middle of the winter - hot like in hell.

The price level is very good. We had a gift card, where we got two menu's for a price of one. Even without that gift card the price level would have been very good.

Service: there were three waitresses. The sevice level of head waitress was good and the wine suggestion was great. Also the scheduling of the service was perfect. But these two other waitresses were poor, like trainees without sign of the status.

Food: bread was ok, the tomato pasture served with bread was great. I had Menu Paysan. Season's risotto (pumpkin) was too aldente. Striped bass ok but nothing special. Chockolade fondant was great.

My girl friend hat Menu Maison. Carpaccio was something you can get from shops. Bouillabaisse was really great, something worth to try. Cannoli siciliano was ok.
