Restaurant Pastis

A small piece of Paris in the middle of Helsinki

Restaurant Pastis was established in 2013 by the owners of Restaurant Muru, a very successful bistro in Helsinki. We at Pastis have a simple mission: to offer classic, delicious, handmade French delicacies to our customers, and to be the best French bistro in Helsinki. We use only high-quality ingredients coming from the best Finnish and international producers. In terms of the atmosphere at Pastis, we want to make our customers feel like they are dining in Paris. The classic, relaxed feeling of a French bistro is our trademark alongside with friendly service.

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