We had a nice dinner in party of 4 (family with adult children) early November on a Saturday evening. Restaurant was fully booked so do not forget to book in advance. It is simply decorated in an interesting space which used to be an atelje. For starters we had roasted pumpkin, organic salmon and herring with pork terrine. All very tasty. For main course all of us chose meat of the day which was deer (peura). Meat was perfectly cooked an it was served with delicious sauce, potato and greens. For dessert we shared two signature desserts - liquorice crème brule. They have interesting selection of wines which are decently priced when it comes to Helsinki restaurant scene. Service is smooth and attentive.

We really enjoyed our dinner. Everybody was very satisfied with the dishes they picked. The total price of the dinner was very reasonable (again in Helsinki context). We’ll definitely be back and highly recommend Atelje Finne.

Atelje Finne has been a hit since the first day it opened. Excellent value lunch menus (three course under 30€) and the same great value for money in the evenings. Always fresh ingredients and usually very good fish dishes. No nonsense food well prepared and nice interior as a bonus - scandinavian classic design. Definitely worth a visit.

This used to be one of the best Finnish restaurants in Helsinki. What has happened to this place!?

We took our guests here on a Friday night for a nice Finnish meal and conversation. The food was not as good as it used to be. The main course, the meat of the day, was actually quite bad. But the noise in the restaurant was the worst ever! There was a group of drunk men singing and shouting in the next table, so that the group of us four couldn't hear each other at all. The waiter didn't do anything about it even though we asked him to.

With a price over 60 euros per dinner one would expect a lot more. Definitely will not bring my guests here again. A big disappointment!

Tonight we tried this restaurant based on a recommendation from our hotel. We were not disappointed. We had an intimate corner table. The atmosphere was very cozy and the staff was very attentive without being overbearing. The menu seemed to be what I would have considered Finnish comfort food without being heavy and stuffy. I had the fish of the day - a lovely poached white fish in a light, flavorful sauce. My husband had the horse and although it sounds shocking, was delicious and tasted just like a filet. I was impressed with the beautiful work carvings all over the walls. A perfect late night dinner. We'd return if we're ever in Helsinki again!

This restaurant is full of light and it's interior design is really good: "airy and arty", place used to be an atelier...Excellent service, not pushy but "present" all the time. Food (and 3-course menu) was great experience if compared to its price and how tasty it was. Portions were big enough and even if the restaurant good be one of those overpriced "trendy" places, it has its own character and has managed to preserve a natural feeling. Definitely a restaurant to visit if in town.
