One famous Finnish chef once said that ordinary people should not be able to evaluate fine dining restaurants because they do not understand all the professionalism behind the food art. Well, probably I am one of those people, I have to admit. I, personally, like more simple, more relaxed food and athmosphere. But I have to admit that during the... More

To make it simple - this is something so good you will always remember! The materials were tasty and beautifully set on the plate. We had a "Nordic way" main course (Arctic Char) and excellent wines. You cant go wrong with OLO but you better prepare yourself with a wallet too 🤓

This was my third time in Olo. I felt there were more risky combinations in the night's Matka than before. Some great like the reindeer and some not so great like the porridge. This time more not so great combinations.. Wine selection was nice and broad though still missing an Amarone. Service impeccaple as always!

High quality fine dine restaurant. I suggest having a set menu with matching wines. The night won't be the cheapest but sure one to remember.

Cool place and good food Visit the restaurant's internet page before visiting in order to ensure that type of food is your liking, because it is shame if you go there and even when the food is made very well you do not like it...

Absolutely loved this place! Went for the chef's creative menu - over 16 courses for €149 per person. Each course was absolutely delicious - too many highlights to detail but the serving staff were knowledgeable about the food (we're total geeks and quizzed them extensively on ingredients we weren't familiar with) and friendly throughout. Given my sweet tooth, favourites included... More

All of us were super excited for long night at the restaurant. Chef menu with 20 small dishes (4 of them were good but rest of it was not good) It costed 150 euros for each one and total bill was 1.500euros (with wine) and it was totally not worth it. We ended up in small room (with good service... More

Occasionally we like experimental cooking and our first visit to Helsinki gave us the opportunity to try the Scandinavian version. Everything was fine, from the pre-booking to the friendly goodnight. We chose the Journey (I think) and were seated near the kitchen which I visited from time to time. About a dozen small plates served in sequence, all beautifully presented... More

We celebrated our wedding anniversary and booked a table here. We had "puolimatka", wich represent halv of their "real" menu. Food was simply amazing, great Nordic tastes and lots of suprises. If you want to taste something extraodrinary, come here and be stunned by this place.
