Had my birthday dinner there, and what a great experience. We had the daily menu, and every course was excellent. So was the service, which gave us just enough attention without being intrusive. Clearly everyone working that night cared a great deal about giving us the best possible dining experience.

There is no menu so they just tell you what is available. You can have two courses or more. We started with a an entree of smoked fish with broad beans and jerusalem artichoke and followed up with a sublime main course of cod fish. There were also meat dishes like a french style beef dish and they can cater for vegetarians but it would be best to let them know before you come. This is a very popular restaurant so if you really want to go you should book well in advance. We got lucky and got a table for 6pm when we enquired the day before we went but if you want to make sure to get a table make a reservation

This is a very nice bistro type restaurant centrally located in Helsinki. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the service very attentive and friendly. The cuisine is based on fresh seasonal ingedients and it is certainly worthwile going for the menu that is very resonably priced.
The restaurant has also a very nice wine selection and the waiters are very willing and helpfull to help you select the best wine fit within your budget

I'm sorry to disagree. Was there today. This must be the venue with the most hype in the whole Helsinki: 49 EUR for 4 boring and uninteresting courses...go figure. We ate for 32 EUR, 3 courses lunch at Postres the day before and there was no way to compare. This is the kind of place were lack in skill and creativity are compensated by trying to give a "homey" and "laid back" attitude, in hope that you also get "relaxed" and do not notice the poor value you're getting. It seems to be working, but it did not work for us. Once the hype is over, I do not think this place will last on top 10 for much longer...

Ambience and the welcoming spirit of the waitstaff was a great beginning of a lovely evening. The pri.fix dinner was interesting and well prepared. We dont eat dairy products and they were very helpful in adapting their options for us. The wine suggestion was spot on and the attentiveness throughout the nite was excellent but not intrusive. It was a great dinner in an unpretentious place at reasonable prices.
