Took group of colleagues for a dinner and they loved it. Great service, nice atmosphere and most importantly the food was really good.

Just spontaneously dropped in when I saw that they have oysters, my absolute favorite. Great quality and freshness with a good glass of champagne. Continued with their traditional pike perch in a onion-dill sauce. Perfectly prepared and delicious. Waiting time a bit long but otherwise nice attentive service. Will visit again with my wife.

Me and my fiancee dined in Restaurant Rivoli on the 17.12.2016 at 10 PM. The restaurant is one of the oldest "French style" restaurants in Helsinki. It´s still very eighties in atmosphere, and so are the dishes. This is restaurant is all about good ingredients and taste, nothing fancy about the presentation. Service was very calm as was the general... More

Lovely French restaurant. Very authentic food and good service. Great menu and everything we ate was delicious from the scallops to the sole. Nice decor and surprisingly quiet for a weekend but nonetheless a lovely atmosphere for a quiet sophisticated dinner.

We went on a Saturday evening - yet the restaurant was almost empty. However the food was really quality and the service was excellent.

We enjoyed a wonderful fish dinner in this lovely restaurant. The service was warm and friendly and the meal was delicious. I had a dim sum appetizer and my husband ate escargot. Then I had shrimp while he enjoyed sole. Everything was really great.

Just in Helsinki for one night with a tour, we wanted a well prepared local seafood dinner, more upscale than the public market where we had lunch. This was right around the corner from our hotel, and we were the only diners at first (6:30 pm on a Tuesday). My husband selected the prawn salad, which had very fresh greens,... More

I had menu 2 from their list which had "Asperges, coquilles st. Jaques et magret de canard" in it. This this was really good. Main dish was "Carré d’agneau grillé, artichaut de Jerusalem et choux". Lamb was not as good as my wife can do but in general very good also. "Crème Brulée au sureau" wasn't the best one. The... More

Nothing to grumble about here: excellent sweetbreads as ordered up in advance by my lunch companion, a fine Samuel Billaud chablis by the glass to wash them down, and a delicious berry crumble dessert to round things off. Elegant yet unfussy, with pleasant waiting staff who know their business. This is a Helsinki classic, and deservedly so.
