“Technically good food experience, did not find fengshui”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

As you can expect food and service is TOP10 in this restaurant. Wines and stories told by Mika Mattila are excellent. Restaurant it self was so minimalistic that I lost my fengshui at down stairs lobby that is or was Helsinki city officers bureau entrance. Address is now days Katariinankatu 1.

“best food and best experience ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

we really enjoy our dinner at Luomu. First once you make a reservation (which you have to plan well in advance) you get the whole night as they only take one reservation per table per night. The atmosphere is very intimate and romantic. The food was spectacular as in presentation as in taste. Really recommendable!

“Excellent food with special care”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

Restaurant (Ravintola in Finnish) Luomo boasts an innovative and modern cuisine with a foundation on classic gastronomy. Luomo concentrates on the quality of food and customer care rather than on impressive premises, though the location is really cosy and with an ample view over the Kauppatori market square and the seaport.

The restaurant is located at the first floor with no external signpost or any indication. You must know your way to get there but your search will be amply rewarded. The special care begins before seating down, when being asked about food allergies (as anywhere in Finland, gluten-free or lactose-free food can be had without problems).

The restaurant offers 29 different menus in three grades (three, five or seven courses) all exquisitely assorted and progressively priced. The three-course is enough to keep you happy, the fiver is for the ravenous and the seven is something of the outer world. The idea is to serve a well-balance selection of local food and tastes from all over the world. The care with which the food is served is impressive: each serving is minutely described, both in its origin, ingredients, and preparation. The wine selection is equally ample and of excellent quality. A dinner at Luomo is truly an unforgettable experience.

“Nice evening out”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

Decided to check out Luomo since the new location is very convenient. The interior is very minimalistic (ladies with high heels: watch out for slippery wood floor). We found the amouse bouche very entertaining & tasty. Personally I liked the appertisers and cheese selection more than the main courses (even though delicious as well). Service really varied by person, but have to give extra points for bringing our copy of the menu (& paired wines), before we even had the chance to ask for it.

“Excellent Evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

Passing thru Helsinki on travels with friends back to the US, we decided to give Luomo a try after a strong recommendation from our hotel. The restaurant atmosphere is minimalistic. Nice place for a dinner for two or a group. All of us were surprised with the quality of our dinner. We were offered either a five or seven course meal and all eight of us choose the five. The service was excellent and the pace of serving each course was perfect. Each course had a marvelous presentation and were excellent on their own. We were surprised at the quality and sophistication of the food and would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.
