I really like italian food and this restuarant really surprised me. They had somewhat nordic touch to the dishes but the original idea was well followe. My antipasti as smoked scallops were excellent and the chargrilled veal liver very gently cooked and delicous. The courses were big enough to skip primi. Their chocolate salami was also nice but nothing too... More

We had a dinner with our friends on Saturday evening at Ristorante Gastone, a place that is nicely located near the city-center, behind the Esplanadi Park. Restaurant is plain, pretty open space. Since it was more or less full of groups, possibly having their Christmas Parties (?), the noise level emerged rapidly. We ordered a menu of three meals (a... More

I expected more from this restaurant. Since we were there, menu was much better as this time. It was strict. Starters were nothing special and there was only four main course to choose. If you don't like liver or you're not a vegetarian, only choice is choose deer or arctic salmon. I choose a salmon as a starter and it... More

Restaurant location is few steps from Esplanadi park in Hilsinki, ambient & interior design is nice. Food ingredients are fresh, taste is nice, prices are moderate compared to same grade restaurants in Helsinki. when you come to menu variety, it is not so rich, just very few plates of each category. Don't get fooled of food photos posted on internet... More

We joined twenty or so locals at this restaurant on a Sunday night. The vibe was good; service consistent and food delicious. Prices were slightly higher than elsewhere that we tried in Helsinki but as it was a Sunday there were less options open.

We arrived without a booking and had no trouble getting a seat on a Tuesday evening. The place was busy but the service was great! The food came out quite quickly and it was delicious. The waitress was very knowledgeable about the wines that were served there also. Overall it was a great experience.

Business lunch visit - clean, bright city centre restaurant on the Esplanade in Helsinki with a small, but nicely diverse lunch menu including small dishes (i.e. pasta bolognese, goat cheese salad) and more substantial ones, as well as a complete menu. Service was super - very fast from order to beautifully presented food. Lovely house-made ice cream for dessert and... More
