Me and my wife went there for dinner. Before that we went to 2 other typically Finnish restaurant and were very satisfied. But unfortunately this one was really horrible. I had a lamb filet with minttu sauce (some kind of local white alcool) and garlic potatoes. And my wife took some fried Baltic herring with smashed potatoes and vegetables. Both... More

We were only in Helsinki for one night on route home so wanted to find a restaurant fairly close to our hotel. Wellamo is a little way from the main tourist area,it seemed more residential. We had a great meal sampling the lamb, the pelmeni and herring. The food was excellent but the lamb dishes were at best lukewarm even... More

A bit off the typical tourist tracks in Helsinki but worth the detour if you are looking for authentic flavours and atmosphere. Reasonably priced as well and with good service.

Old fashioned interiors, candles, paintings and few tables outside, this small restaurant is located in the beautiful Katajanokka district. A place like this is a rarity in Finland and throws you back in the old Helsinki. Also, I liked the food (home-made kitchen style) and the portions are quite large. Negative aspect: sometimes they have a rude service.

I've tested liver meals in five different restaurants during the last two weeks and Wellamo was the absolute rock bottom of all five. I visit the restaurant 3 to 5 times a year, because I like the atmosphere and until now the food has been pretty good. But not this time. The service was arrogant and food simply poor. All... More

Tiny old Restaurant with a small menue. Food was decent, service friendly and fast. Whine was excellent. Good overall-exerience, just a little too much stuff lying around, especially above the entrance door. Was that the old box of a kitchen mixer? ! That's not as "styley" as owners might think.

It was a great pleasure to visit Wellamo. This kind of restaurants are really for me. It's Wellamos 40th anniversary. You can feel good old times without beeing old-fashioned. The most important is the food. Very tasty and simple portions were reasonably prised. The wine list is guite short but has quality.The interior is very cosy and the service attentive.
