Staff was well educated for wines and food. Customer service was really good and food was 5/5. Personnel took customers into consideration for The whole night.

We booked for a Saturday evening and had a good table by the window. We went a la carte and had starters and mains, no dessert. All dishes beautifully presented with good flavours and textures. Service friendly and English-speaking. Small selection of wines only available...by the glass which was good for us. A little distance from central Helsinki but well worth the short tram ride.More

We booked dinner for 2.Terrace in not very nice, practically on the road. We got a table nside, nice and cozy, mainly locals. Staff is great but unfortunately no english menu. The waiter helped us out and we managed to order. Main dishes ( fish)...were awesome, starters just ok, maybe too scandinavian. Great wine list. The waiter/sommelier suggested some wines but without mentioning the price ( no english menu). Paid 180 euros for a 4 course meal and a main dish plus 2 drinks and a bottle of wine. We founded kind of expensive , but then again is Helsinki!More

The food was excellent, the 6 course menu gave us new flavours and excellent combinations. Even the more traditional courses were brought to a whole new level with excellent wine pairings. The staff is very friendly and professional. A favorite of mine as a local,...but would highly recommend this place to tourists visiting Helsinki looking for Finnish food and fine dining.More

A smallish place a little outside the downtown of Helsinki. Service friendly, the wine list impressive. As starters perch and salad, both OK. Main course lamb from the archipelago Ahvenanmma, delicious. A good dinner finished with Creme Brulé.

This has become our favorite restaurant. Every time the food is delicious and prepared with care. The wine pairings for the menus complement the food perfectly.

We booked a table for a late dinner and were received really well. As non-Finnish speakers, staff did everything possible and provided full service in English. The menu is very good and there are choices available for everyone. The quality of food was excellent and...I couldn't think of anything other than perfect. Big up and will definitely come again if I catch myself in Helsinki again.More

As we live right nextdoor, we typically frequent Aito about 4 times a year. This time we chose for the 3 course tasting menu. As always, the courses served are simply delicious, elegant tastes from the best ingredients. No spices here, Aito delivers Finnish produce...at its very best yet always innovating and combining. Impeccable and personal service is a given as well. This small privately owned restaurant is the Töölö district, a short tram ride away from central Helsinki.More
