The Olo restaurant is located on Pohjoisesplanadi 5 right by the water in the capital city Helsinki, Finland. By the waterfront, they offer ferry services and cruise sightseeing tours on the Royal Line Oy. Olo is a fine-dining restaurant where you can feel the food in all its essence. You can enjoy a superb meal or two from Tuesday to Saturday. They also have another restaurant, a modern bistro called ‘Garden by Olo’ that is located right next to Olo in an inner courtyard.

The inspiration

Olo gets its inspiration from restaurateur Jari Vesivalo’s childhood memories. Preparation of the food is done with respect towards old cooking traditions combined with modern cooking. The flavours on the menu come from Scandinavia as well as around the world. The dishes represent the chef's passion for craftsmanship and food. At Olo, the menu changes a little every day as it is prepared with the best seasonal ingredients.

Olo rewarded a Michelin Star

Pekka Terävä, Petri Lukkarinen and Timo Sailama founded the restaurant in 2006. In 2009, the Finnish gastronomical society chose Olo as the Restaurant of the Year. In 2011, Olo received the coveted Michelin star, and they have managed to preserve it every year since. Olo is one of six restaurants that have a Michelin star in Finland.

The Michelin Guide wrote this in their description: “An attractive harbourside townhouse plays host to this cool, minimalist restaurant, whose four rooms have a delightfully understated feel. Local meats such as moose and elk feature in exciting, innovative dishes which are packed with flavour. Dinner arrives in up to 18 servings.”

What does Olo mean?

'Olo’ is a Finnish word that symbolizes ‘good feeling’ and is a part of the word “olohuone” living room. Besides excellent cuisine and wonderful service, the most important factor at the restaurant is its atmosphere. Olo wants guests to feel at home, surrounded by good friends. It’s the overall experience that matters.
