Established for carnivores and night riders

Restaurant, Bar & Terrace Grotesk

Because we’d rather do it than write about it – and because blowing your own horn never produces an elegant tune – we’ll let others do the talking this time:

“Located in the primest of prime spots in the city, in an old bank building on Erottaja.”

– Ottoizakaya Blog Post

“The place is amassing a veritable collection of shout-outs and thumbs-up.”

– Ottoizakaya Blog Post

“The dedication of this restaurant warrants near-perfect marks.”

– NYT supplement, Helsingin Sanomat

“Perfect flavour pairings and first class individual performances at fair prices.”

– Kati Partanen, Viini Magazine Blog

“Honest, simple and straightforward food, where it was all about the main ingredient.”

– Avaruusasema Blog Post

“So get yourselves to Grotesk. The hottest restaurant right now. Full stop.”

– Hannan Soppa Blog Post

Restaurant Grotesk

“Grotesk serves steaks the likes of which you’ll rarely find on offer.”

– NYT supplement, Helsingin Sanomat

“The greatest pride of Grotesk is their dry-aging meat cabinet, where first-class meats are allowed to mature in perfect conditions. The meat is then prepared in their Big Green Egg wood charcoal barbecue cooker.”

– Exclusive Hillbilly Blog Post

“Never in my life have I had such tasty French fries. [– –] Straight up potato porn.”

– Hannan Soppa Blog Post

“May I say, for the third time: totally awesome.”

– Delicious Life of Mine Blog Post

“So good, I didn’t even take a photo.”

– Ravintolainsinöörit Blog Post

“To sum up: a rather terrific experience, and I’ll definitely go again once I’ve got my drinking problem under control. For - as everybody knows - a good steak and a good red wine are always better than mediocre sex.”

– Turkka Food Corporation Blog Post

Bar Grotesk

“Our bar crawl got off to a perfect start at Bar Grotesk.”

– Keltaisessa Keittiössä Blog Post

“We’re drinking art here!”

– Ottoizakaya Blog Post

“Cocktail-wise, Bar Grotesk is one of the most sophisticated in town.”

“The staff behind the bar at Grotesk are among the best in the country”

– Elle Finland / Blond Rivets Blog Post

“A whole new world of cocktails opened up for me in Grotesk, one that I had no idea even existed.”

– Keltaisessa Keittiössä Blog Post

“Grotesk even has a special ice room, where ice is made and sawed into cubes for use in the bar.”

– NYT supplement, Helsingin Sanomat

Terrace Grotesk

“All roads always lead to Grotesk.”

– Elle / Blond Rivets Blog Post

“By the way, Grotesk has a summer terrace complete with DJs and, best of all, cocktails on tap.”

– Ottoizakaya Blog Post

“At the same time, I had to wonder why I hadn’t found my way there before.”

– Pako Arjesta Blog Post

“Known for its delicious cocktails and atmospheric terrace, Grotesk Bar and Restaurant has emerged as one of the hottest nightlife destinations in Helsinki.”

– Flounce Blog Post

“Go ahead and ask the bartender to mix you a tangy drink with raw egg in it. It may sound weird, but it tastes heavenly!”

– Flounce Blog Post

“The markup on a bottle of wine is only €20. This is why a bottle of Dom Perignon, for instance, just got cheaper by over a hundred euros.”

– Lily, Trendi Magazine’s Online Blog Platform
