There are several excellent restaurants in the city serving Finnish food, without advertising being a "Finnish restaurant". If you want to taste Scandinavian lax, mushrooms, barley and other ingredients you should try these classic restaurants: Kämp, Kappeli or Sunn.

If you insist dining or lunching at the Finnish restaurant, try Aino on Esplanade park. Also Lappi restaurant is specialized on food from Northern Finland, Lapland. You can try reindeer and cloudberry with cheese there. Restaurant Juuri is the restaurant where I take my foreign friends for dinner. Thery serves Sapas, which is sorth of Finnish tapas (Finland=Suomi, hence the S in sapas).
