We went here just to have glass of wine and something to nibble. I thought We were lucky to find this kind restaurant in Helsinki cause of warm welcome and how they were so in the wines and local food also they have this boyish kind of enthusiasment to wild herbs which they proudly present to the customer. We had three tapas to start with really good sparkling wine, to continue we had beutiful set of local and foreign cheeses with tasty red wine and for dessert we selection of sweet tapas we were overwhelmed. The waitor chose all our wines listening our smallest request and they were perfect. I think we hit the motherload, I will take my guests there when in Helsinki.
Thank you for pleasant evening.

Delicious tapas, wonderful wines and incredibly professional and friendly service! 5 tapas selection is enough for a light meal especially if combined with selection of 3 tapas dessert.

Just went here. Absolutely loved it. From the family owned service to the incredible range of flavors, this place hit on all points. We ordered 5 tapas each and split a main. Each tapas demonstrated the local produce with a twist. Honestly can't say enough. The lamb main was great, and had local mushrooms and fennel that brought everything together, oh and it was cooked perfectly.

The waiter, son of the owner, was very knowledgable about all the wines. He selected two for us that we're perfect, and very reasonable.

We loved everything so much we ordered more tapas, which couldn't have been better. Smoked fish and duck.

The tapas are small, and it's not cheap, but nothing seems to be in Helsinki, so overall, given the quality of the food, it is a good value.

Go here if you want great fresh Finnish food in a non-traditional style.

It was refreshing to find exceptional service in Helsinki. Our waiter was the son of the owner and extremely knowledgeable. As there is no menu in this restaurant, he was excellent in choosing the wine to go with the food, giving us several choices in all price ranges. As far as the food, top notch and not over-priced like at other places nearby the The Esplanade. Going back next year for sure!

No menu. No prices. No kidding. Just a warm friendly atmosphere with sincere hosts who spoke fluent English to welcome us to their restaurant. They take pride in their local, mostly organic ingredients that they pick, in some cases themselves. A delightful meal, off the main drag. Do not use the location found using the iPhone apple map ap. it is wrong at this time as the address is correct but on opposite side of the esplanade park. A local directed us there and I'm glad we didn't give up looking for this place as it was a unique hidden find. The rack of lamb was delicious as was the vegetarian entre with morels.
