フィンランド人の友人もお連れして入りましたが、ヨーロッパで食べた料理ではナンバーワンです。お値段もそれなりに高いのですが、満足できると思います。フィンランド人の友人は食べたこと無い料理ばかりと驚いていました。盛り付け、お味、サービスのどれをとっても素敵です。I took my Finish friends also. Definitely this is N.o. 1 cousine in Europe. These dishes are also quite new for my Finish friends.

We had the chef's table and it was perfect choice for us. Food is new nordic style and the kitchen knows what they'r doing. And I think that the food and service is worth of second Michelin star,

Overall OLO offers really superb moments of cuisine, wine and service but a few things were somehow off. We took the short journey menu and it was more than enough food lasting close to three hours. Exceptional and unique-flavour dishes were two. The semolina reindeer...More
