Kellohalli was something totally new to me. My old faithful friend took me there in the intention of having a casual dinner and just chat in private. The very open premises are perhaps not ideal for talking in private, but the general atmosphere, especially in summer time I should think, is very nice. The very simple furniture and plain "industrial" decor is perhaps something I am not that used to, but I am always open for new ideas and ended up liking to sit on that long bench reminding me of my great aunt's summer villa in the archipelago, with three generations sharing a weekend meal at a long table..
We had the suggested fried perch with some vegetables, and this was simply put a very good dish. One of the best of its kind I've had in years. In my mind, it cannot compete with the rich traditionals of Los Mellizos Pescaderia :-) but instead, a trendy and very positive in both tastes and preparation of the demanding fish, rather small size fish perch and in boneless fillets.
The wines by glass are in my opinion a bit too expensive, to me 11 euros for a glass of rosé wine (even if from Provence and very-very good of its kind) is too much even though a whole bottle would cost the restaurant as much as some 8-10 euros. The positive side was that the waitress let us taste the wine, as she of course should, then poured the wine in the glasses at the table and without using the /&¤%¤ traditional metal centiliter measure which would have spoiled both the wine and the customer experience. - A big thank you for understanding to leave this ritual to the 90's and to the chain restaurants serving some lousy BIB wines.
All in all the place represented something trendy and positive, a "warm wind from south west" and if they can repeat our experience, I am very happy to recommend it.
