Being a global city, Helsinki offers more than just Finnish food. American, Spanish, French, Mediterranean, Oriental, Russian and other world cuisines are all served in the vibrant city of Helsinki. True to its reputation, Helsinki has a plethora of five-star restaurants to suit every taste in the world. For excellent traditional Finnish cuisine, which is somewhere between Russian and Scandinavian cuisines, you can't miss with the Savoy. This luxurious restaurant has been adding some glitter to the city's gastronomic scene since the 1930s. Top-notch service complements the clean, no-nonsense interiors, just as an excellent wine list pairs with the traditional Finnish menu well. Try the Vorschmac, one of Field Marshal Mannerheim's favorite dishes, as you take in some awesome views of downtown Helsinki from the windows.
A royal meal could be had at the Palace Gourmet. Located within the Palace Hotel, this restaurant has been one of the most preferred dining spots for the elites of Helsinki. Enjoy the magnificent view of the South Harbor while dining here. Pamper your taste buds with the Menu Surprise -- a set menu with a seven-course meal. Visit Palace Gourmet if you want to mix with the high society of Helsinki.
Walk up to Sasso and you will be impressed by the facade itself. The effect is enhanced indoors, where craftily-planned lighting adds ambiance to the posh furniture. A long, sexy bar has patrons draping themselves over it stylishly while sipping a clear glass of sparkles with Italian nomenclature. The Mediterranean cuisine sizzles in the kitchen as well. A typical meal includes the ravioli, risotto and grilled fillets of fish or roast lamb, all attractively presented, followed by an ice-cream frappe of portions that would put Santa to shame. Indulge your palate, and find out why people are willing to travel across the world to visit these Helsinki five-star restaurants.
