This is a neighbourhood restaurant with real french ambience. The interior is stylish yet cosy. The staff is professional and the service attentive. We were recommended nice pastis as aperitif and the wine recommendations were also spot on. We enjoyed our dinner very much.

I was staying in Hotel Lilla Roberts which is across the street and decided to have lunch in this "homely" French Restaurant. Friendly service, tasty Moules Frites in Creamy Cider sauce with delicious Chablis, so overall real nice stop. They have lots of French delicacies from snails to charcuterie plate, so definitely worth of visit. I was solo, so it... More

Pastis is one of the nicest restaurants in Helsinki! Atmospheric and cosy interior, not too stiff. The menu had something for everyone and for good value. Food was excellent. Desserts were average but good. Our waiter was lovely and gave us good wine recommendations. Definitely worth a visit!

This is a fantastic little French local with excellent food. It is evident that all the staff are true foodies and take their trade very seriously and know their stuff. I could have eaten everything on the menu and had trouble choosing as it all sounded so fantastic, but I ended up having the steak which was excellent.The service is... More

Night was quiet, so the excellent service was no surprise, but most welcome all the same. Restaurant was cozy and warm and very pleasant surrounds. I had the rabbit as a main which was amazing and matched to a perfect wine. Expensive but no surprise in Helsinki, but I don't think it was unreasonable. I recommend for a couple and... More

We were a group of over 20 for a family get-together, and the Pastis restaurant arranged at short notice a separate room for our celebratory dinner. The room was a couple of steps down from street level, probably a former store room. It was long and narrow, actually quite cozy but difficult for the personnel. The menu had been agreed... More

The food and the wines in Pastis are just amazing. The atmosphere is very cozy and stylish, but not at all too posh. The service is extremely friendly and professional. We paid about 170 € for 3 courses with 3 glasses of recommended wines and coffee. A very nice place for an easy celebration, I would say.

We visit restraunt few times per year. Every time it is a big Joy. We love the fact that menu is short and always changing. Every type of octopus which we tried was a delicious. Nice atmosphere and Saturday brunches are worth to visit. A bit expensive place though, but nothing is cheap in Finland. CHEERS. This place is worth... More
