“Great lunch”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

Its a subsidiary of Juuri which is more of a fine dining. Excellent lunch there as well, but this is cheap!. The price-quality ratio is really great. Had a couple of times lunch there and every time it has been in the class of almost Juuri and Pastis, which is around the corner. So if you plan to go to Pastis, but can nit get a table go around the corner, great food for half the price.

“Good lunch, sapas and wine”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

Lunch is tasty and good value for money. They use mostly Finnish natural raw materials. Outside lunch time they serve sapas which are Finnish style tapas. Wine list is good and reasonable prised. Several wines by clases. Decoration is casual, not bur business lunch.

Would have walked right by to place if my local friend had not recommended. Terrific spot to sample Finnish-inspired cocktails & tapas. Highly recommend for an afternoon, snack!

“Enjoy a Spruce Shoot Margarita in the Latva (Canopy)”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Well, it is recommended for ladies in particular. Tough guys tend to sip excellent Finnish beer. No, not any of the major brands Finnish ice-hockey teams advertise, but real beers, ales, bitters, etc. brewed by minor breweries. Some of them on tap!

Don't hesitate to have a couple of Sapas (Finnish tapas) - you look much more intelligent with a couple of plates in front of you. By the way, they are really tasty, innovative and cheap.

The place is not hard to find; just ask where the Design Museum is. Latva is the next door neighbor. Coming back to Spruce Shoot Margarita (kuusenkerkkämargarita) - try it anyway, its unique. Mean delicious. A drink or two and you'll the Finnish design easily reachable and colorful.

The most important: the personnel is friendly, the atmosphere surprisingly international.

“Bar with nice attitude”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Latva bar (treetop) is ran by same people who run Juuri (root) restaurant just up the block. Latva provides nice outdoor seating for those nice days, and interior spaces are sufficient even for a larger group of people. Good local micro-brews and other stuff to enjoy.
Latva is also dog friendly, all well behaved nice dogs are welcome to join check the other well behaved people around.
