The refined restaurant experience
The relaxed restaurant experience
Finnjävel lets you indulge in the culinary essence of Finland. We celebrate the wild and exotic cuisine of our beloved Northern land. We interpret the unique gastronomy of Finland in a modern yet sophisticated way. Sparking memories in our visitors with a single bite.
Finnjävel is a homage to the true masters of the Finnish cuisine. To the Finns, who in the Finnish countryside and cities, cherish, develop and keep alive the Finnish culinary tradition by cooking, baking, hunting and foraging. We proudly continue their work to the best of our abilities.
Finnjävels have been travelling across Finland searching for the best and most interesting recipes. They have cooked together with grandmothers and grandfathers, talked, hunted, baked and learned what Finnish food is all about. Finnjävel uses Finnish ingredients. Our carefully chosen ingredients come from selected Finnish farms and other producers but also from the Finnish forests and lakes. Mushrooms, berries, game and fish are the highlights of Finnish gastronomy.
Finnjävel has two restaurants: Relaxed Sali is a casual restaurant inspired by Finnish home cooking and Salonki is the place to indulge into Michelin-starred fine dining.
Behind the unique Finnish design of Finnjävel Salonki are the renown Finnish designers and architecs Kivi and Tuuli Sotamaa, a brother and a sister. Located in the Taidehalli art exhibition building we are surrounded by all things Finnish.
Our head chef and owner Tommi Tuominen characterizes the dominating circumstances in the history of Finnish food with scarcity and minimalism. In the harsh climate food has been so precious that absolutely everything has been used. Creativity, an absolute necessity for survival, has spawned a rich variety of traditional cuisine.
Scarcity has also inspired Tuominen and the rest of the Finnjävels. In the hands of Tuominen, Salonki was awarded it’s first Michelin Star in 2021. The same year Salonki was awarded with the acclaimed Service Awards for the best service in the Nordic countries.
Sali is the place to enjoy casual, yet elegant Finnish food in a cosy atmosphere. We offer straightforward Finnish cuisine and athmosphere from lunch to the late hours of the evening. We wouldn’t be Finnish devils if we didn’t bring back the forgotten delicacies of the past or cultivate someting new. Even the Carelian pirog is not the same after us!
The elegant, dark-coloured cabinet of Finnjävel Salonki offers a perfect venue for all of your important occasions: be it a company dinner, a meeting or a family celebration. The Finnish wooden table sits up to 12 people and the comfy chairs allow you to just enjoy the evening.
The private dining room can also be booked during lunch time. During lunch we serve the more casual interpretations of Finnish food from our relaxed Sali side.
