An excellent restaurant and experience. The cheese course with a bitter beer was a challenge at first but superb in the whole. Very expensive but worth it for a treat. Beautifully cooked and served. The 6 course and flight with the beer is highly recommendedMore

Excellent, though expensive, 7 course dinner with pairing wines. Portions fairly big. Dishes based on local delicacies, excecuted with a twist. On our visit, service was not really up to the standard of a Michelin-restaurant - the waiter forgot to serve our wine with one...More

The most exclusive location in Uudenmaankatu. This restaurant offers very good and innovative food, the wine selection is nearly perfect. It's a pleasure to enjoy the dinner, the invoice in the end is surprising.

The Demo restaurant, with its Michelin star, lives up to expectations. The service is superb with personal touch. The food is excellent with lovely mix of flavours and textures. And yes, it is delightfully pretentious. It is not a cheap place, but one goes to...More

Food and service were quite nice, place is small and romantic. We had a small table for 2, which is ok. You cannot decide what you eat. You can decide only on how gig is your menu. Wine list was really good, but expencive.
