As the restaurant scene of Helsinki keeps on evolving, it is sometimes nice to go “back to the basics”, so to say. There are some classic restaurants, or taverns if you wish, with a long history in Helsinki which enjoy a reputation of a traditional Finnish restaurant, just like the ones in Aki Kaurismäki’s movies. These restaurants offer a kind of a haven where the classic Finnish cuisine menus and interior design are not shaken by the latest trends. You will most certainly fall in love with the milieu and the food!
