Many places have a 'signature' drink and A21 has a book-full. But theirs are truly unique and worth a special trip to explore. The bartender was very friendly, explaining the ingredients of what I selected. Only negative is while the surrounding bars where pulsing with...More

This place is truly amazing. The attention to every little detail is just unbelievable. To have the full experience, you have to take the drinks menu to go together with the dinner menu. It really is worth it. We had our doubts about drinks and...More

The food is creative, delicious and beautifully served. The Kalevala theme is charming and gives an interesting, "artistic" feel to the evening. The cocktails are unique, and while you might wonder about multiple cocktails with a tasting menu, they complimented the food superbly. The service...More

Absolutely gorgeous food. So delicious and beautiful that I have no enough words to describe. Dinner served as set of 7 fantastic creatures. As they say - it is better to see it once yourself, then ten times listen to someone's story.

We enjoy fine dining, but most of the time the cuisine can be predictable and familiar. Nothing wrong with that; however dining at A21 goes way beyond that. Here the dining experience is a trip into the unknown and unfamiliar. Unusual ingredients, intriguing combinations, unique...More

Went there for NYE on the recommendation of a friend. Great service, great food and expertly matched drinks. Surprised the place doesn't have a Michelin star.

Description
The concept of A21 Dining is to play and pair ingredients and flavours together. We draw our inspiration from the Nordic nature and culture and transfer them into narrative flavour journeys. Since its launch in October 2010 A21 Dining has concentrated on developing modern approach to cocktail food pairing. Honouring the pure and clean natural ingredients both on a plate and in a glass. The menu is designed to be a flavour journey into Finnish nature through food and drinks. We get our inspiration from pictures, the beautiful and versatile seasons in Finland and paintings. Based on these, we have carefully crafted a seven course pairing menu that changes seasonally.
