Restaurant Aino is excellently located in the heart of Helsinki by the lovely Esplanade Park. Shopping street as well as the buzzing market square are near by at the harbour. Restaurant Aino has been a proud advocate for traditional Finnish food. It has turned out to be a great success with foreigners in search of authentic Finnish dining experiences, as well as Finns reacquainting themselves with some old favourites.
The menu consists of several traditional Finnish dishes, but the main emphasis is on modern cooking which utilises the best fresh ingredients available in Finland, including freshwater fish, reindeer, game, root vegetables, mushrooms and berries. Alongside these pure, unadulterated flavours, the restaurant can offer you the perfect wine or beer as accompaniment.
We make the winelist together with Essi Avellan, who is Finland's first Master of Wine. We offer recommended wines for every dish.
All beers are Finnish and come from small, local breweries and all around Finland. We do have the recommendations of the beers too with every dish.
The restaurant is divided into two floors. There is an atmospheric brick cellar, that includes also small cabinets for private meetings, and the street level restaurant area, that is a bit livelier and has lovely view to the Esplanad park. The restaurant can accommodate up to 100 people, while the outdoor terrace has room for around 50 customers in the summer time.
