Cloudberries are a. too bitter (vit C) b. too sweet (chef hiding the bitterness with SUGAR). So, they offer on their website a cava/cloudberry drink to begin with. Like a fool I am, I accept. We loved it! The taste of couldberry and the sweetness was a perfect balance with the bubbly. Cloudberry was like a red yarn through the... More

This is a lovely place with brick walls and high ceilings yet very up to date interior. I have been here five times enjoying both dinner and lunch. The food has been always excellent and wine recommendations spot on. The staff is attentive and the service always excellent. .

This restaurant works closely with local food producers and as such knows the origin of its ingredients.. We had the tasting menu, which came with small snack suprises between the courses. Every dish was carefully introduced, and excellently presented, and everything is tastefull. If you want to eat modern Finnish, this is a good option.

The most I appreciate that they know where their food comes from. In addition to that, the service is excellent and the food is great. The food and wines are paired excellent way. Also, the place and ambience is very good. If you are prepared to pay a bit more than average, Nokka is an excellent place to visit.

We visited Nokka with my friends as we were in need of some delicious lunch. This was the right place. The lunch itself cost 10€, which was a really great price for the experience. We also ordered some tasty mulled wine, which happened to be one of the best i've tasted. The interior is extremely pleasant and it is good... More

I visited with my husband in October 2016 and we had a gorgeous meal. The building and interior is lovely and cosy, the service was great, the staff speak perfect English (as with everywhere in Finland!). It was expensive but not outlandish when you consider that everything is expensive in Finland and well worth the money. Highly recommended.

Beautiful setting in an old warehouse, close to the waterfront. History in the brick walls, with design decoration adds a modern touch. Very good Finnish cuisine served by a friendly staff. Reindeer was tender and tasteful. A nice atmosphere and venue for a business or romantic dinner.

Amazing 4 course dinner for the wife's birthday. Staff are very friendly and quite knowledgable when it comes to their food and wine. The food was extremely good and well presented, and the wine pairings were perfect. The inside of the building is spectacular and provides a very warm and comfortable atmosphere. It's in a great location at the waterfront.... More
