Neighbourhood: Kampinmalmi
Description: Finnjavel’s Finnishness is not only about food. Finnjävel has a unique design concept. The restaurant is located at Kunsthalle in neo-classicism surroundings. The building itself is protected but everything else is custom-designed for the restaurant. Deep dive in Finnish cuisine and design. Finnjävel has two different restaurants. Salonki is true fine-dining experience, and Sali is for casual and cozy eating.

This restaurant is located in the same building as the Taidehalli art museum. During our museum visit, we had just refreshingly cold beers here.

The interior with hanging rag rugs from the ceiling offered visually more than most artworks in the museum.

The food offered here is typical Finnish food with a twist to create a fine dining experience.

Finnjavel Salonki is an unforgettable experience, paricularly for finns who have memories of typical dishes eaten in 1960’s and 70’s. Finnjavel is serving them again, but naturally as a modernized gourmet version. Their 5 or 8 course menu can be recommended to anyone, who wants to understand the development of the finnish cuisine over the last decades. The Salonki, or Drawing room, part of Finnjavel is a top level gourmet restaurant with stylish decoration to the last detail and designed to support the menu story, which is a thought through entirety. All dishes and kitchen greetings are tasty and imaginative and supported with well selected wines. Also the personnel is ready and able to tell stories and background of the dishes, which makes the dinner a real learning experience. Truly recommendable.

We have now been visiting this Finnish restaurant twice, at lunch time and evening for dinner esting four course menu. Have to say that both visits were good and food really taste. Kitchen is - I think- Finnish but with new twist, modernized without any tinkering. If in Helsinki this is place to visit and be sure you visit the Sali, not Salonki - where you just loose lot of money - the almost same tasty food you get in Sali.
Finnjävel have also vegetarian and fish options.
