We visited Hella & Huone one Wednesday evening and the restaurant was totally empty. This is a shame since Hella & Huone offers an incredible menu with seven courses, which build up an excellent meal experience. The menu is focusing on fish which makes it...lighter and total amount of food is not too much, even though portions are not small. Service was friendly and professional and we really enjoyed the evening. Strong recommendation for Hella & Huone.More

Both food and service were terrible and definitely not something that you would expect from restaurant in this price range. Waiter and waitress knew nothing about the food, which we had to eat without any drinks as they just picked the empty glassess when bringing...the next course.More

We were a party of two for dinner and chose the full menu with pairing wines. We were hungry but it took them about 25 minutes to get us even the water to the table. And no bread or anything while we were waiting. The...first meals we got about 50 minutes after arriving at the table (timely as we had made a booking). Also, the service was correct but I would not say it was even polite. The food itself was nice, no complaints at all. The wines did not impress and the portions seemed very small in our glasses. Maybe we just had bad luck but would have expected more. And the food definitely would let you ask for a better overall experience.More

We had a family dinner with a toddler in the restaurant. Both the adults but also the toddler were very happy with the excellent service and delicious food! We will revisit the restaurant for sure!

We've been here twice after it moved downtown under a new management. The first time late in the fall was an excellent experience, which is why we chose it as the site of my birthday dinner this January. The kitchen's greetings, both before and after...the dinner, are tasty and add a nice touch to the occasion. For starters we had now (as last time) blinis with vendace roe. Very tasty, even if the blinis were slightly burned this time. We chose duck as the main course. It was disappointing; it came in two varieties, slice of duck fried in the traditional way, and a croquette. The meat was nothing special, and in my wife's portion it was tough. The croquette was better, albeit rather spicy, judging from the after taste. The pinot noir recommended for the duck was not to our taste. The dessert, coffee flavored creme brulee with amaretto sorbet, was wonderful. Service was friendly. Both times we were the first customers, this time even the only ones. Perhaps this caused the restaurant keeper to walk around for the first hour in his jeans and discuss (rather loudly) with various suppliers, friends, and this time even an electrician (as there was a glitch with electricity, the lights going on and off). Moreover, the voices from the kitchen are loud, and we could here them discussing, e.g., the beginning ice hockey season in NHL. I think I even heard a vulgarism -- I hope I misheard. Anyway, none of this contributed to an atmosphere that you would expect in a fine dining restaurant.More

Very plain, white and simplistic interior which we didn't mind. We had the 5 course tasting menu with matching wines. With the mind-boggingly high prices we were expecting a michelin star experience. Nope, didn't happen. The service was somewhat nonprofessional, with issues such as forgetting...our water etc. The food was executed well, a couple if hits and a few misses. The final touch was missing on all but one dish. The biggest issue I had was the monkfish. Now why on earth would you serve imported fish like monkfish, when we have a beautiful and exquisite variety of delicious local and domestic fish in Finland, such as arctic char, salmon, perch and dozens more. And above all - in my opinion - monkfish has always been possibly the worst fish ever that you can put on a plate. The texture and taste is just not pleasant in any way. Overall for these prices we expected a whole lot more.More

Good food, quite small portions. Tasting menu and little bit of wine, nearly 100e per person. In the middle of the city. Good service, do not come if you are in a hurry

The baguettes I bought before the train journey was not ordinary, but surpricingly spicy. The place has some tables to eat, but mostly people take the food to the train. I can recommend.

This was the second time I've been in Hella & Huone enjoying their tasting menu, and once again it was outstanding. Besides food, the restaurant offers welcoming athmosphere and I would like to recommend it to everyone who likes good food and wine.

The food is unique, innnovative and beautifully presented. The wines go so well with the food The service is half of the experience. Friendly, knowledged, professional and just the right amount so you could eat in peace but felt that you were taken good care...of. Go for the food, stay for the experience.More
