Good food with an Eastern touch. Totally reliable. Very cosy. We had a calm evening and were very satisfied.

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

The front desk staff at the Hotel Katajanokka identified this family-style restaurant located very near their hotel. One of us had fried herring and the other had lamb dumplings. Both were excellent. They are known to serve Scandinavian food, and it was well priced. It’s...a little out of the way - at the bottom on a narrow stairwell - but the dinner is worth the adventure. Mike & Bev NYCMore

The lamb dishes are amazing (Russian-Finnish style). My husband and I had two different lamb entrees and both were amazing. We rank this our favorite restaurant in Helsinki (and we have been here a while). For dessert, try the homemade chocolate cake and/or the homemade...tar ice cream. The chocolate cake is not heavy but includes a mousse and the ice cream is best described as a sauna on a plate. If you could taste ”sauna”, this tar ice cream is it. Delicious food and wonderful atmosphere!!! Don’t miss Wellamo. A hidden gem on Katajanokka.More

This is my favourite restaurant in Helsinki. Live very near to it and visit every week on thursdays. Why? Because on thursdays they have liver which we never make at home. Wellamo has the best liver in the world.

What can I say... nice athmosphere and good service, BUT not the food. Once again a big disappointment. Few years back I decided not to come here again, but unfortunately I decided to try again. A big mistake. The lamb stew was not only tasteless,...but the meat was also stiff. It takes skills to cook such a stew☹️ This was an excellent restaurant ten years go, but not anymore. Calling Gordon Ramsay, please help!More

Restaurant Wellamo is smalland very unique restaurant in Helsinki Katajanokka. Atmosphere is absolutely nice and warm. Service is very friendly. Food is very special and very well known. Because of the size of the place and popularity it is good to make reservation early enough.

Varied menu and good service. View of a children's playground was not that inviting, but who cares when the food is good.
