This is a lovely spot but we were very disappointed in the lack of flexibility for a vegetarian and another guest who did not eat beef. We had corresponded in advance about our dietary limitations and told them that our guests would be celebrating their anniversary. We had been assured that it would be fine. However our meal was neither very festive nor very substantial. Perhaps it was our fault for ordering a shorter menu but our vegetarian son had to stop for a sandwich on the way back to the hotel. Another issue was difficulty we, as English speakers, had in understanding the descriptions of the various courses. I had the sense that they were eager to have our business (it was a holiday weekend and they were not very busy) but not all that happy to actually cook for us.

The new restaurant premises look nice, minimalistic design. The location of the restaurant is perfect, in the heart of the city, by the market place with a sea view. Unfortunately food was not as good as you expect for a Michelin star restaurant, nor worth the high price. Service varied a lot during the evening, from excellent to poor.

Strong points
- clean tasting saucers of food
- unusual combinations of flavors
- excellent wine choices
- brave attempt to challenge other fine restaurants in Helsinki

Weak Points
- too many small dishes blunt the taste buds
- restaurant lacks a quality feel, because location is rather plain - the space needs more drama and less formaility
- too many disturbances from well-meaning staff

We had a five-course menu full of culinary magic, with perfect wine pairings, and knowledgeable, friendly and charming service. The atmosphere is very spartan, but the view of the harbor is nice. All in all, if you like nouvelle cuisine with a Nordic twist, this is it.

I had amazing 7 course menu with perfect wines. Food and wine combinations were extremely well conceived. The dishes were most surprisingly served. Greek sallad with feta curd, Red king crab with avocado terrine, and for a dessert sweet cauliflower paste with nutmeg ice cream, to mention a few. I truly recommend to take the suggested wines with your menu.
