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.

Have eaten here for ~ 10 times over the past years. Never an exceptional experience including a very modest wine list. The restaurant has a great chic reputation but the food today lacks what it used to be when this opened years back.

What a great experience! We were on the bistro side of this restaurant and it’s absolutely worth visiting. 5 course meal with the wine package comes with reasonable price compared to great quality of the food and friendliness of the service.

We really enjoyed our dinner. Even though the restaurant was fully packed they were able to serve the dishes in a good time. The concept is super with the open kitchen. If you have a table next to the kitchen you are basically able to...see your dish in the making. They also have great wines to pair with the food. Highly recommend this restaurant.More

Can't argue with the great reviews ... had high expectations and was not disappointed. Really enjoyed the vibe (buzzy but not too noisy) and each course was beautifully prepared and plated and delicious. Service was warm and friendly but not intrusive. Be prepared to spend...about 100 euro per person ... bit pricey, even for Helskinki ... but (except for the wine) you get what you pay for.More

During our stay in Helsinki happily received an opportunity to have a dinner here. Grilled white asparagus and beef tartar italian style were extraordinary delicious starters. Home made pasta taglione coloured with basil was the same high quality. Reindeer sirloin with red wine sauce and...roasted scallops finished our fireworks of flavours. What an evening!More

I can't say why I like this place so much. It might be the space, or the big windows, or the cheerful happy staff, or the relaxed atmosphere. It might be the great starters, or the pasta course, or the "warm dishes," or it might...be the wine list. All of these things could explain it, but there is something more.More

This was our second time here, and again everything was perfect. The pasta with garlic and chili was the best one I’ve ever eaten, it was literally perfect. The lemon pie was also one of the best pies, and all the rest of the food...made me super happy as well. I think the pricing is very good compared to the quality of both the food and the service. The owner seems very nice and I love the open kitchen and area in general, because you can follow the positive vibe of the staff in everything they do.More

An excellent and vibrant restaurant… The only minus is the very modest wine list. Wonder why they don’t improve on that aspect.

Of course we had to see what the buzz was all about, so I booked this restaurant to treat a foodie friend of mine. Hard to say which one is the original, is it Bas Bas Bistro or Bas Bas Kulma. I booked a table...to Kulma (which is not actually in the street corner as the name suggests). Tables can be booked only a month in advance and be quick about it! Despite the covid restrictions I don’t think this restaurant could fit any more people in this restaurant… Then the food: good food, but the menu idea needs tweaking since my friend got her sea bass and pork portion at the same time. You really cannot eat two mains at the same time if they’re fish and meat. For me this was not a problem since I ordered pork and carrots for mymain dishes. Also there could be wine recommendations for each dish to make life easier, especially since our waitress told us this was her first shift. Also had to remind the staff that we’d like our wine with the food and then again the glass of port ordered with the dessert. I thought that the food was too salty, especially my main dishes, but my friend thought that it was a bit salty but not too much. To be honest, I didn’t get why this restaurant is so popular.More

The restaurant was fully booked due to Valentine's Day eve. We are not the easiest couple, because we have quite a list of nutritional limitations. But with excellent help from the waiter, we found suitable portions for menu. Food was delicious and the service was...excellent. White wine from Czech Republic and French apple juice were recommended and we found both to be very tasty.More

Excellent food paired with the best service and nicest people in town. Every course melts in your mouth. Wines per glass were nice, nothing spectacular since they do not offer pairings. Next time will go with a bottle. Can’t wait to visit again! Four stars...because our table was not ready when we arrived for our seating and due to Covid restrictions we had to keep up the pace to eat and drink our fill quickly before they stopped serving/had to close up. This influenced the experience..More

Absolutely brillant. No hype, only a great service and a great menu. We were 3 so we took the whole menu and shared. Their home made non-alcoholic drink was also great. I’d give 6 stars out of 5 if possible.

Nice athmosphere and fantastic service. Food is very tasty and looks good too. I propose to take 4 course dinner with a good wine. Remember book a table on-time. Until to the next time.
