The Best Restaurants in Helsinki

The StarTripper Journal presents the best places to dine in Helsinki, both international gourmet and good Finnish choices.
Our team in Helsinki are native born Scandinavians, they know Finland very well and speak the language. They love the city, the cold winters, warm summers, beautiful islands and great green parks.
The city’s rhythm is laid back, but at the same time refreshingly active in terms of number and quality of restaurants and really funny nightlife - clubs and bars keep the party going until the early-hours - something is going on every day of the year.
And Helsinki is one of the world’s leading cities in design, architecture, culture, shopping, - the hometown of Alvar Aalto, Marimekko, Arabia and Iittala.
