We had a reservation for the opera menu late after the opera. It was announced as a three course menu; for 46,- Euros we expected a modest late evening meal. But to our surprise it started with four (!) light and delicious, very creative greetings...More

World class fine dining that would not be out of place in a respected two-star restaurant (if that's how you look at it). Not a single boring or misjudged dish on the menu, including the generous amuses, petit fours or even the pre-dessert. The food...More

We had a seven course surprise menu with accompanying wine package. Highly recommended. The young chefs cherish traditional French cooking and respect local original ingredients and/but manage to produce combinations that are fresh and innovative. This is not a cheapish restaurant but if one respects...More

Stepping into this restaurant is like moving in space to France, but still meeting Finnish flavors. Menu itself was excellent, but what made it even better was truly outstanding match of food and wines. And small welcome dishes from the kitchen teased us to wait...More

We had the four course surprise menu with wines. If you are going to the restaurant and choosing the surprise menu, stop reading if you want to be surprised. First we had two really beautiful amuse bouches. Tastes were quite mild. The first course was...More

We had a seven course menu with wine package. Astonishing food. Additional to the seven courses we had six greetings from the chefs. Young chefs had made fantastic dishes of local ingredients in a french manner. Outstanding. The wine package was full of pleasant surprises....More
