I went on a business trip to Helsinki and looked for a restaurant with a good rating.The dinner menu was chosen as the course meal. I heard the explanations carefully for each dish, but in conclusion, I only remember desserts, and the main dishes don't taste good for the price.
3 course surprise menu...loved it!
PASSIO was one of the relatively higher end/fine dining restaurants I visited during my trip to Helsinki. The restaurant itself is located in a good, easy to get to area in center city...perhaps just a cool 5-10 min walk from a trolley. The restaurant itself is quite small and seemed rather popular among business travelers (since the prices are on a higher side...as a result of fix prixe menu). Dress business casual at least, so you feel comfortable there. I was ewally in Helsinki as a tourist on the way traveling down south to Eastern Europe/former Soviet Union countries...and didnt quite bring as much nice clothes as I should have..but at least I tried to wear my nicer shirt and non denim jeans pants! Nevertheless, the restaurant didn't make a fuss out of what I wore to eat there. Definitely do make a reservation ahead of time. The restaurant is small and they do try to time the dishes/ course for the table, so you can be sure you arent turned away upon arrival. I actually initially booked myself a 3-course meal. However, being a gluttony and a person who enjoyed eating...I asked if I could change to a 5 course meal upon checking in to a restaurant (judging from other tables around me though...most people went for a 3 course dinner). They had no problem with my request! The meal itself isnt just 3 or 5 course as you expected though as they had some complementary amuse bouche/palate cleanser for you in the dinner course, too. Overall, I found the meal to be good. Thr meal was fresh although I did find the meal itself to be quite large (and some..a little bland..I think I ate all the beef and left half of accompanied veggies untouched). Service was attentive and they took care of a single diner like me well (I think I was the only solo diner there! Everyone else was either on a nice dinner date, business dinner, etc!). The restaurant itself could be as bit hot in the summer (when I ate at the restaurant). I remembered looking at a lady and a gentleman far across from my table closer to the bar and they were sweating/looked a bit uncomfortable. At the end, I think they asked to switch to another table because of the hot temperature. Also, there was just one restroom/WC and I was kind of thankful I wasn't sitting facing the opening of the WC. I honestly felt bad for the guy sitting and dining there as I think he probably saw me going back and forth at least 3 times that evening....because the meal took that long! I think I started my meal around 6:30pm and didnt ger out until close to 10pm. Luckily, the place I stayed was super close by, so it wasn't a problem/too tiring for me to call it a night!
