Reviewed October 18, 2013 via mobile

A small and cosy place with very nice personnel and an extremely well composed menu of subtle, yet tasteful dishes that takes you on a journey through Finnish cuisine!

“Craft Concept”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Expect to spend several hours at Spis over a meal of small dishes that the chefs manage to infuse with unusual local flavors. The tasting menu changes depending on what is fresh and available, and the cooks' inspiration. Presented in an extremely informative way by the friendly waiter, our meal was an odyssey of new wines paired with new ways of thinking about how a meal is constructed — or deconstructed — and presented. Unique handmade dishes added another layer of interest to what was a thoroughly engaging dining experience.

“Warm and cosy restaurant for new style Finnish cuisine”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Recommended by a local and went to this warm and cosy restaurant for new style Finnish cuisine. All dishes were tasty and fresh alongside with a nice presentation. Waitresses were informative in introducing every single dish. This is a must-try restaurant for anyone who is open minded and wants to try the trendy Finnish dishes. Final bill was around EUR80 for the tasting menu with 2 glasses of wines.

“A tour de force of excellent small dishes”
Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

An amazing tasting menu in a charmingly small restaurant. Several "hand-crafted", amazingly fresh tastes. This was one of the top meals of a two-week tour of Scandinavia. Don't be put off by the lack of menu, just trust that the chef will surprise and deliver. Also drank a reasonably priced bottle of wine.
