Restaurant Vinkkeli is located in the heart of the Kaartinkaupunki neighborhood, at the intersection of Korkeavuorenkatu and Pieni Roobertinkinkatu. Vinkkeli can be described as a food and wine restaurant, presenting a friendly, honest, and uncomplicated take on classic cuisine, where the wine and drink selection is given the same devotion as the selection of ingredients in the kitchen. The wine list covers the important varieties while featuring those best indicative of their origin.
Behind Vinkkeli are three passionate experts, sharing more than ten years’ history at Helsinki’s legendary restaurants. The restaurateurs’ angle is that a classic kitchen, high quality raw materials, and seasonal thinking are a starting point for a festive dinner, or just a quick lunch or supper.
The name Vinkkeli (point of view or corner in Finnish-Swedish) refers to the restaurant’s location in a historic corner building. Yet it also promises the young entrepreneurs’ personal point of view, on a classic, holistic, restaurant experience at this intersection of place and time.
