“I cannot be the only one to have discovered this relaxed style of dining which lets you order the table full of various bites, wine and cocktails one after another without fear of settling the bill.” 26.8.2019

“Lovely atmosphere, stunning service and the food was amazing. So much great flavours. I fell in love with this place. Me and my wife's best restaurant experience in a long time.”

Tripadvisor user 1.9.2019

“The best part was the eggplant with the incredibly powerful almond sauce. The high-umami and sweet-salty sauce turned the eggplant almost meaty even though the deliciously heavy dish was vegan.”

HS Nyt / Teemu Leminen 18.9.2019

“Started with a solid cocktail and moved on to amazing food with the friendliest staff. Definitely will go again. Very happy with the plate size to cost profile. 100% recommended.”
