Food here is quite straight-forward, nothing too fancy, but yet some very interesting dishes. For appetizers, the pelmenis was very good as a light but tasty dish. Some people in our party also had the steak tartar, and thought it was excellent. The main dishes could have been a bit more delicate. The pike-perch had great flavors, but was a bit soupy. Staff was very friendly, especially the Italian staff member who was very helpful with wine selections. Overall, nice, simple atmosphere with transparent food.

I had read many nice reviews of this restaurant and wanted to check this out: we had a family dinner with 3 adults just before the Christmas (Friday night).
The place was very crowded and we had to wait for our table for a while outside (we had a reservation) and the atmosphere was quite noisy.
But the service was friendly and smooth and the food was ok: not as good as we had expected but quite nice, simple and tasty.
We had the whole menu from starters to desserts with aperitifs and glasses of wine.

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!
