“always reliable”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Took some business friends there and all of us were impressed. The menu includes some "experimental sounding" dishes that work very well. Service is very good. A solid overall performance. The main room has poor acoustics, so for more intimate or important meetings book one of the smaller rooms.

Reviewed June 8, 2014

The staff was very professional. The food was well prepared and included quality incredients.

“Very good”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

Restaurant Smör ('Butter') has the 'Chaine des Rotisseurs' sign with reason. The standard of atmosphere, food, wines and service are on a high standard. Recommend the 3-6 course surprise Menu with selected wines. Thank You.

“Pleasant, but not mindblowing”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

I went there with my fiancee on Friday afternoon. The kitchen had just opened and there were few tables including ours.
We both ordered starters and the same main dish. The sparkling wines, we found a bit overepriced, therefore sticked to only a glass of wine each.
Both starters were very nice. I had a meet based one and my fiancee had a vegetarian one. The main course was for both lamb. All in all the food was good, but the lamb had for both of us too much salt in it, which for a dish of 30 euros each, is a bit upsetting.
We also got a complimentary mushroom soup, which was tasty.
Coffees were good!

What I missed was a smile on the face of the waiters. They sticked so much on their professionalism, the service felt dry in my opinion.

Not bad, not excellent but a good plus.

“Early saturday dinner”
Reviewed April 7, 2014

Relatively quick dinner early Saturday evening, prior returning home by train from the city of Turku. Some of the other places nearby were completely sold out but restaurant Smör was able to accomodate our party of four without any reservation.

Bottle of champagne to share while choosing the first and second course. Artichocke soup was good, creamy and tasteful to start with. Meat in two different ways completed the dinner accompanied by bottle of red.

Nice decoration in old cellar, conveniently located by the river. Recommended for couples and small parties. Professional service. Wine list broad enough, with pricing competitive compared to any similar place in Helsinki.
