Description: Restaurant Olo treats you to a gastronomic journey filled with Nordic influence. It's all about the best ingredients and clear, modern flavors. Naturally wine plays an integral part in the dining experience. Our cellars are filled with interesting wines, including wines that are exclusively available at Olo. In our restaurant, you can feel the passion for work and food. Everyone in Olo shares that same feeling - love for food. That love and genuine warmth we want you also to feel as our guest. We have been awarded in Michelin Guide with one star since 2011. Welcome to enjoy!

“Maybe the best place in Helsinki”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

Been here couple of times for lunch and like it so much that we celebrated our wedding in their private cabinet. Food is excellent, different but excellent - maybe not the best place for the mainstream McDonalds loving people. Prices are a bit higher but it's well worth it. Service has always been excellent, friendly and not so uptight one would expect a Michelin star place to have. For me, the best place in Helsinki!

“Sure bet”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

My second visit to the restaurant, this time on business. We took the Journey with wines. I think it was the best meal I have ever had. Every single plate, and there were plenty - I lost count, was suberb. Typically there is something you do not like in a multi-plate dinner, but not this time. The wines were to die for. Higly recommended!

“Good food, good service and good atmosphere”
Reviewed June 26, 2013

This Michelin* restaurant takes good care of customers. Service was exellent, both waitres and somelier who served wines. There were not choices for meny, but they have builded one full off tastes, "nearfood" and wines just for the courses.

“excellent contemporary Finnish”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

Went to Ravintola OLO for lunch. Dinner prices were quite high and the multi-course dinners were probably more food than we tend to want. Two smaller plates per person with some shared dessert worked out just right. The food was perfectly done with extreme attention to detail, e.g. tiny woodland flowers picked by one of the kitchen staff on his way to work adorned one dish. Exceptional flavors. Very knowledgeable wine service. Tab was still quite high, but this was a very memorable meal.
