Ragu has created excellent menu which combines best parts of Italian and Finnish cuisine. We ate menu Ludari, which was partly suprise. Especially Toast Skagen was delicious supplemented with crab soup. Also best combination of breads and spreads ever. Interior is modern although Ragu is in old renovated building.

Best meal we had in Europe so far
EVERYTHING was amazing!!!
We took the 'Ragu' tasting menu
Even the bread basket was beyond belief - the black bread was indescribably delicious
The fish was seasoned to perfection
Just thinking about Ragu makes my mouth water!

We invited two old friends for dinner and asked them to choose the restaurant. Without hesitation they said "Ragu"! It took me a couple of minutes to remember that ragu is stew in Italian, similar to ragoût in French. It is not far from the city centre in a lovely old building. The restaurant consists of several rooms, we were seated in what had once been in indoor terrace. Now it was completely glassed over with a high ceiling so it is light and airy. Our young lady server turned out to be a Jill of all trades;- Maitre d, sommelier, waitress, she did it all very efficiently. We commenced with a bottle of champagne and were then given menus, the groups of courses were quite short only 3 or 4 dishes but there was a mysterious menu for 2, 3 or 4 dishes without explanation just, ask your server. We did and one of the party chose the 3 dishes. The others made their choices. Food service was perfect just enough time in between to relax for a few minutes, the tastes were extraordinary especially the sauces. Everyone at each table received their dishes at the same time, either one or two extra servers would come from the kitchen and for larger groups a small army came forth one tall man wearing a cap! He was the chef who we met at the end. There was a slight problem with a bottle of wine, we drank it and ordered a different wine. At the end the first bottle was removed from the bill. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening, excellent food and drink, a pleasant chat with our server and the chef and I was given a hug when we left. Can't wait to return to Helsinki in October. One little moan, I would prefer staff to wear crisp whites not denim and jeans!
