Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Simply fantastic experience. Arrived a bit early on a damp evening and was warmly welcomed. The service was exemplary, courses were delicious and well paced, wine pairings were nice (although the Moscato was a bit too sweet for my taste). First - yogurt sauce, Maitake...mushrooms, chestnuts, sweet potato. Second - Salmon tartar, cauliflower, cauliflower foam, and garnish. Third - Reindeer, pumpkin, horseradish orange purées, macadamia nuts. Fourth- Hazelnut cream, ice cream, singe cake.More

Small place with few tables, which gives it a cozy quite vibe. Perfect for a date for two. The service was incredible, and the food was amazing. I would highly recommend a visit to this place.

Very nice dinner in home-like environment. Deer meet for main course and dessert were our favorites this time 👌 Very nice friendly service. We have found this place through Expedia by chance, but will definitely recommend to friends 😀

We only came here, as it was close to our hotel. No reservation - but very lucky 2 had cancelled before we got there! We had the fixed menu, but as we are not keen on desserts had 2 starters. Every course was amazing!

Do not approach this as a dinner. Approach it as opera played with food. The experience is exquisite. The remaining text I just fill in because TripAdvisor forces me to use 100 characters.

This is a must visit restaurant in Helsinki! Italian with a Scandinavian twist. Place is tiny and therefore tough to get a reservation. Excellent & laid back service. We had a 4 course menu with a great wine set 🤤.

Impeccable meal from start to finish! We chose their bartender’s choice to pair with our meal. It was a fun surprise to see which cocktail or bottle of wine would be paired with each course. The staff was very welcoming and friendly.
