Everyday luxury and enjoyment for all the senses

The look, feel and flavours of the Opera Restaurant’s product range are created with utmost care to complete your opera or ballet experience.

As seasons play an essential part in the Finnish food culture, our restaurant’s menu changes to reflect the season’s harvest, too. Natural and local ingredients define the product selection. From our youngest to oldest customers, we want to cater to everyone’s needs and preferences. This means vegan and gluten free treats abound, too. Discover the delights of the Opera Restaurant in autumn 2022.

Our restaurant service is provided by Food&Events Tapahtumaravintolat.

New for the 2022 autumn season: Art&Dinner

Enjoy our new Art&Dinner menus before the performance

We are pleased to announce we’ve created new Art&Dinner menus tailored especially for opera and ballet lovers. Served in Opera Restaurant’s refurbished balcony foyer, you can enjoy it on your own, with a friend or with a larger group. The dinner planned and prepared by our chefs is served in the Lounge Parvi starting at 5 p.m. Special dietary options are also available when ordered in advance. What’s more, we’ve crafted an ideal wine selection to accompany your chosen menu.
