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.

A ”hidden” bistro with an amazing, comfortable atmosphere.. the service was excellent and the staff was really friendly and helpful. The seasonal menu was exciting and really delicious. I smiled all the way home late in the evening.

We like this restaurant, and we like the food. But it was a nice summer evening and we wanted to eat on the terrace. No, not possible. Why? Because "we don't serve dinner on the terrace." So we went down the street to another well-known...Helsinki restaurant and had a lovely evening with wine and dinner for €360. So, walking three extra metres to serve food outdoors is not worth the revenue.More

Tucked away in a corner of Katajanokka/Skatudden, Wellamo is a place to make you happy. It is not pretentious, yet quality is top-notch in drinks, food and the wine-list. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly, talkative but not intrusive. Tartare for starters was sublime, and...the pike-perch with asparagus and a ramson-sauce was perfect. (Well, there could have been a little bit more fish, but the composition was beautiful). We'll be back!More

This amazing, little, cozy place looks like your favourite living room but with 5-star restaurant food. The service here is friendly, helpful and add to the experience of enjoying good Finnish food. Would definitely recommend for a lovely night out!

The menu may be limited but the food is absolutely delicious. I am a fast eater but each mouthful was too good not to savor. Recommend the mushrooms and Brussels sprouts to start followed by fish and mussels.

Surprising, fresh, respecting the best Helsinki traditions. Great service. Absolutely worth the (short) walk from the centre. - While you are there, check also the icebreakers in the harbour next to the restaurant!

A hidden gem in Helsinki. Wonderful atmosphere, excellent service and delicious food. Best to book in advance, the restaurant is small but extremely cosy. One of my favorite places when in Helsingfors.

The composition of the dishes was thoughtful and polished, and we liked most of them. The breads were lovely. On the other hand the portions were very small - close to fine dining - which was somewhat surprising for a neighbourhood bistro. Hence recommendable to...order four courses. The wines were really high-priced, even for local standards: one big glass between 24 and 34 €. Service was partly a bit distant and uncommunicative. On the plus side it is always nice to see the chefs bringing dishes to tables. The waiter suggested ice cold sparkling for a welcome drink, when the weather was freeezing outside. A hot toddy or glogg would have fitted the circumstances better. Modest, informal, and original tiny restaurant space and setting.More

This classic restaurant of our neighborhood has been on hype lately since the change of restauranter. So I was hoping to get a decent dinner experience, but unfortunately disappointed with too many dishes and service.

My friend and I were in town for one night in Helsinki. The food had been so delicious we were looking very forward to our last Finnish meal. Unfortunately, Wellamo was not what we had anticipated. It was Father’s Day, so there was a set...menu. The service was great, but the good was not good. I have never felt more disappointed for the amount I paid for poor quality food. The fish was raw and the lamb was very undercooked. Even the wine seemed old. I would not return or recommend. Take a little further walk and try something different.More

This is one of those places where time seems to stand still. Classics on the menu, no sign of latest trends in cuisine. I had escargot for first and for 2nd fried herring (? silakka in Finnish) with mash. We were a group of 8,...all enjoyed I think. A def bonus is that there is no music.More
