We visited Helmi Grilli in Kontula, Helsinki, on an experimental note. We chose the pulled wild boar neck with fryed potatoes and bbq sauce. The taste was good but the meat was not as tender as we had expected. Meat from the grill signals a certain endeavor which, however, didn't convince us.

I have visited this place several times and I am perfectly happy to go again. For some reason the owner does not want this establishment to be listed in the Finnish "eat.fi"-site. It´s certainly not because there would be something profoundly bad with the food, no, it´s quite OK food. Our party of four had this time mushroom soup, scampi... More

Very nice food, probably the best restaurant in this area. Definately the most classy restaurant in the area with nice polite staff. I usually eat steak or pizza but I hear the rest of the food is good too.
