The food at this place is very good, the waiters are attentive, and it is small and intimate. However the decor is more "shabby chic" cafe or wine bar, not for,as it turns out, an expensive dining "experience". The six course tasting menu was interesting,...More

This is really a small place and that is why the reservation is a must. The long menu with the wine package is really, really nice experience. Also the service is relaxed, attentive and kind. The total package is absolutely the worth of five star....More

Helsinki is a simple town. Pretty but nothing spectacular. Spis makes up for all of that! The 6 course was just brilliant, and surprisingly filling despite the deceivingly small portions they serve you. Be excited for "The Sauna" - a refresher to the palette that...More

Wow it's been a while since I've eaten here, I really found this place conceptually to be a fantastic dining establishment. Very personal relationship with the chef and intimate setting. I felt very welcome and definitely recommend coming to this place if you're in Helsinki!

I was a vegetarian for nearly twenty years, and I have never had vegetable-centered cuisine as exquisite as this. Yes, there was meat and fish on the menu, but the vegetables are the star here. The service is perfect, and the wines carefully selected. The...More

Small and cozy restaurant. Tables are close to each other but it doesnt bother. Tasting menu and wine package was absolutely amazing. Lots of vegetables and fantastic combinations. Wines were excellent and paired with portions.

Went without prior expectations. Walked out not feeling disappointed! The restaurant is very intimate with maybe 20 or so seats crammed into a small room. You can almost hear the thoughts of the person at the next table. Didn't bother me but you may want...More

Been many places but never had this good food. Excellent service and great atmosphere. Walking distance from downtown, just a few minutes from Esplanade park. Great or even greater place to eat. Had 'tasting menu'.....a lot of eating. Best wines and good gin (Napue/ Fentimans).
