A small but cosy restaurant with divine food and excellent service. Everything was just perfect. My new favourite restaurant in Helsinki, can't wait to be back.

Kolo is the only restaurant to be voted 5/5 at www.eat.fi. (This is like the national website for the best restaurants to go to in Finland). I took my husband to Kolo to celebrate his birthday and we were not disappointed. Reasons:
1. Thoughtfulness - our host Rony gave my husband a throw as he was concerned that my husband would feel cold, sitting near the entrance of the restaurant.
2. Choices of wine - We decided on the chardonnay but Rony still poured us the two types of house wine available and let us choose. We were indeed spoiled!
3. Flexibility - I chose the menu of the day but I wanted a different appetizer (scallops) and no dessert (because I bought a surprise cake). Rony merely said "no problem".
4. Food was amazing with its unique Scandinavian flavour. The bread was warm and fresh. The problem with most fine dining is you may finish the meal still feeling a tad hungry. But not here at Kolo; the fair amount and value here were all above-satisfactory.

We were so delighted with the food and service that we went to the kitchen to thank the chef. And the chef replied "arigato" thinking I was Japanese. We all laughed, albeit the misunderstanding. I'd advise you to book weeks in advance because it is often fully booked.
