Restaurant Ego

Korkeavuorenkatu 27, 00130 Helsinki

Ego is a neighbourhood restaurant where you are always welcome – a laid-back place for everyone who enjoys good food, drink, company and stories.

As the head chef Kalle Tanner puts it, “Food should not be taken too seriously. A good feeling is reflected in how your food looks and tastes. Too much effort makes food superficial, lacking in soul and warmth. Good food can be not only delicious, but also a little playful.”

The restaurant is located in a building modelled after the palaces of Florence, completed in 1889. Not quite as fine as Florence, but the restaurant serves favourite classics – and create future favourites.
