Ravintola Krog Roba

Krog Roba is a casual Nordic restaurant in Helsinki's Kaartinkaupung. Our restaurant is located a few minutes' walk from Esplanadi in the magnificent premises of the former police station.

The restaurant's elegant and atmospheric ambience has garnered much praise and is equally suitable for a large group meal or an intimate à la carte dinner. We also serve delicious lunches and much-loved weekend brunches. Welcome to the beautiful pearl of Kaartinkaupunki!

Bar Lilla e

Lilla e. is a concept that challenges familiar norms and combines creativity and Nordic positive madness with classic cocktails.

We warmly welcome you to a cocktail bar where "normal" is unknown and "good" is not enough. Lilla e. cannot be described in words - it must be experienced. The bar serves a variety of creative cocktails and food from our restaurant kitchen.
