Experiences for all the senses

An evening at the opera or the ballet is an experience for all the senses. The services of the Opera Restaurant are available before performances and in the interval. Delicious local food and organic produce, stylish settings and carefully chosen products will make your evening complete.

The Opera House, including the wine lounge in the main foyer, opens 1.5 hours before each performance; groups may book an earlier opening in advance. Other restaurant services are available from one hour before each performance.

Our restaurant service provider is Kanresta.

Locally sourced raw materials

The Opera Restaurant prefers Finnish local food and organic produce. Kanresta grow their own carrots and red beets. And few people know that the honey used on the roasted almonds and other delicacies produced by the Opera Restaurant comes from beehives at the Opera House itself.

This season has produced a full-bodied honey with hints of toffee that shows the taste of five-leaved ivy and linden, both of which grow abundantly around Töölönlahti bay.
