Garden by Olo

Modern bistro in Helsinki

Garden by Olo is a bistro, a “back pocket” of the highly awarded restaurant Olo. As a balance to Olo’s composed elegance our Garden offers a more relaxed atmosphere. We are located right next to Olo at a heated inner courtyard, covered with a glass ceiling. The garden-like setting gives you the feeling of being in a Southern European bistro where children are most welcome too.

You can book a table for a minimum party of 15 or book the whole Garden privately. Make a booking request here

WoooW, I have enjoyed every moment at the... restaurant, very nice garden, staff are very nice, seating is very cozy, food could not be better, a fine Finnish modernized taste with good variety of dishes. Dessert is a no miss, I highly recommend it.. Price is on the high side, so be prepared, but it worth it 😎read more

One of the best meals I’ve had in Helsinki.... Highly recommend the tasting menu - every dish we had, we would re-order as a full size portion the next time we visit. Wine pairings worked nicely as well. The only comment is that the music (pop) didn’t match the setting and level of cooking. It would be better for a gym playlist than dinner but food & service were fantastic!read more

Erittäin hyvän tunnelman omaava ruokapaikka... aivan kauppatorin läheisyydessä. Testissä oli kuuden ruokalajin menu ja mikään ruokalaji ei jäänyt kaipaamaan mitään! Vahva suositus tälle paikalle. Lapsiperheenä kaipasimme paikkaa vaipan more

There is plenty of restaurant in Helsinki, but in... the garden by Olo you may find something different. Ideally placed between the esplanade and the harbor of the Finnish capital, garden by Olo possess great volumes, hosted under a greenhouse that protect guests from any climate. The menu is authentic, simple and succulent. The Chef Mikko Pakkola design every plates with a lot of talent, and his team of professional cooks are excellent. Every dishes borrow from Scandinavian culinary tradition, what is found there is unique, not standardized, and create in the same time surprise and more

Otettiin yllätysmenut, toiveitani kuunneltiin... hyvin. Ruoka aivan mahtavaa, varsinkin lepuska! Seuralaiseni olisi ehkä toivonut jotain lihaa, oli aika merenelävä painotteista, mutta pääsi ainakin kokeilemaan jotain uutta. 😄 black lime cocktail aivan mahtava. Asiakaspalvelu myös hyvää!read more

Aivan mahtava paikka. Otettiin viiden ruokalajin... yllätysmenu ja siihen juomat. Kyllä oli loistavat maut, ravintolan ulkoasu myös miellytti, vaimoa jopa enemmän kuin isoveli OlO:n sisustus. Tarjoilu oli myös onnistunutta, meillä oli lähes koko ajan sama tarjoilija, Hanna, hän sai meidät viihtymään. Nyt on kokeiltu 2/3 osaa tästä talosta, kyllä testataan vielä tuo kolmas myös.

Apua miten hyvät soosit ja liemet! Protskut on... hyvin valmistettuja protskuja, mutta kun niiden kylkeen lyödään noin jumalallisen makuisia kastikkeita ja muita liemiä, niin ruoka muuttuu taivaalliseksi elämykseksi. Tykkäsin tosi paljon!read more

I booked for Olo but it was closed for Easter,... staffs were very kind to email me back to offer reservation at Garden by Olo and it was the right decision i made going there! Ambience in the restaurant offers a good vibe. Staffs were very nice. Foods were great, only that we found they were a bit salty. We had great time there!read more

I am quite shocked at the lack of reviews this... restaurant has. It is a really good place for a delicious meal. The ambience is comfortable. The food is delicious. The drinks are good. It is an extremely well rounded place for a meal. We had the 4-course menu with wine pair and a couple of add-ons. The food and wines were an excellent pair. Highly recommended. Plus a kind word for Viimo who was a warm and welcoming hostess for more

미슐랑 별 하나..
I was looking forward to dining here during my... trip to HEL, and overall, it was a positive experience. The tasting menu was thoughtfully prepared, with a range of dishes. The wine selection was not extensive, but had enough choice. My only critique is that some of the dishes were not as well done as I would have expected. My risotto, for example was runny, whereas I typically prefer it firm. One other dish relied too much on local ingredients for the mix (carrots, pumpkin, and potatoes) and, while tasting good, was not particularly inspired. The service was excellent, and the opportunity to talk with the chef a more

Visited during the Jazz Season event in March... '19.The live jazz was a very nice plus (really digged the energy and drumming skills of Alessandro D'Anna), the wine recommendations were great and the food was good but not exceptional. Got the 6-course surprise menu which focused mainly on seafood.Liked the place's inner courtyard theme a lot. The soundtrack that played on the background when the band wasn't playing was a bit corny tho and not that fitting for a fancy fine dining more

Garden by Olo on varsin keskinkertainen... ravintola Olo:n verrattuna. Ruokailimme viiniharrastajien kanssa ja somelier olisi käytöksellään ansainnut vain yhden tähden. Tilasimme yllätysmenuun "premium" viinipaketin ja lopputulos ei vastannut ravintola Olo:n perusteella virinneitä odotuksia (vaikka henkilö toimi molemmissa ravintoloissa). Asiakkaiden kanssa ei keskusteltu viinistä joka kaadettiin lasiin ilman maistamista huomautuksen jälkeenkin. Suosittelen suoraan tutustumista ravintola Oloon (⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐) tai samankaltaista makumaailmaa edustavaan (hiukan edullisempaan) ravintola Ultimaan (⭐⭐⭐⭐).read more
