Excellent (small and cosy) restaurant, with 4 or 6 course tasting menu, primarily serving fresh local ingredients. Very friendly and professional staff. Wine pairing ok, but could be slightly better.

Great experience in many aspects! Not your choice if you need the confidentiality for business dinner as everything is very compact. Good food, good wine accompanying. Some dishes where being different was driving at cost of taste. Still a great option for a dining experience1

A small and intimate restaurant that serves Finnish ingredients & tastes in a whole new way. Voted Restaurant of the year 2015. On the menu is a choice of a long meny or a short meny. I suggest come with plenty on time and go...More

Had a dinner with my husband and a 20 months old son. I was worried how our family with a toddler would be received in a small culinary place like this. Well, perfectly. We ate the tasting menu, and loved it. Our son ate a...More
