Very good service, staff smiling and all the time ready to help. Food was great. Not so intimate, but while eating and talking you really don't mind.

Me and my wife went to have a nice lunch, at that time the restaurant was still quite empty. We got really good service, excellent food and also we tasted suprisingly good non-alcohol wine too! They took good care of my wifes dishes as she has allergies. Very Good!

MInt, macha, lime, almond, marengue... all my favorite flavors in this fresh, green dessert. Lovely service, nice wines and great, modern atmosphere. Not to forget my main course either, very tasty mushroom ravioli.

Had this time the burger! No fastfood-burger, a well made burger with nice ayoli,marinated red onion, cheddar and bbq-sauce with bacon (-crunchy). Not spicy, just tasteful! The beef is organic and local, and was very juicy(made medium) and about 120grams. The burger (just the burger) cost's 19€They offer french fries for +3,50€, small salad +3,50€, double beef +8,00€ or goatcheese... More

I visited as part of a small group having a business lunch. Set menu was short but good. We made finally a mix of 2 menus. 1 person was not able to eat fish so that was taken care as well. Cauliflower soup as starter with home made bread (2 different) was tasty, I had lamb file and neck as... More

Every time my wife and I go to Sinne, it gets even better. The New Year's Eve dinner was the best yet. We took the early (5 pm) sitting as our party of 6 included two children about 10, their parents, and us oldies. Each of the 5 courses was a treat for the eye as well as the palate,... More

My boyfriend and I had a lovely dinner with a cozy atmosphere and a nice staff. As a starter we had delicious duck and as a main course Arctic char, which was incredibly made. The sauce took our breath away! The portions were beautiful and enhanced the beauty of Finnish nature. The tables were put pretty close to each other,... More

After a longer break we came back again and were surprised: the dishes were now more sophisticated and elaborated than earlier, meaning that there were up to 4-5 different components on each plate, and they were all in perfect harmony. We were three and all had the 7 course tasting menu of the autumn list. Smoked duck breast, taco with... More

This restaurant was a great experience! It was a bit of a walk to find it from our hotel but definitely worth the walk. We ordered red wine (which was a really good one!) and the fish dish. The combination of all these pieces of food and sauces was perfect. Also we had some duck as a starter which tasted... More

Sinne is located on the other side of the river, but it's really close to the Old Town and absolutely worth the detour! The milieu is modern and loft-like and the food favours local and organic ingredients. Everything is good but the burgers are really something, so it's really not a dull option to go with that. Good wine list.

Thank Nora T

A restaurant emphasizing local and organic ingredients, knowing their suppliers, and basing their menus on seasonal items. By far the most ambitious restaurant in Porvoo.
