Restaurant Pastis

A little piece of France in the heart of Helsinki city

Our restaurant idea is to offer French classic delicacies, which are simply hand made, fresh and tasty. Most important details are hand-picked high quality ingredients from Finnish producers as well as from our international producers.

Executive Chef and owner Timo ”Sir Lintsi” Linnamäki is in charge of the kitchen. ”Sir Lintsi” is very well known from his patés, terrines and desserts. Every course deserves a perfect glass of wine. Head sommelier and owner Samuil Angelov has made a great wine list, which offers wide range of wines from different prices and areas.

Our wines

Our wines have always a story; we may have visited the winery, the wine is our personal favorite, the winemaker is an interesting personality or wine just simply works with the menu. Naturally, we are focused on France, but we strive to offer wines from other countries too.
