Restaurant Ilves, established in 1932, is a 60 seat easygoing à la carte restaurant in the center of Helsinki.
Since the 1970 opening of legendary live music venue Tavastia Club, its next door neighbour, Ilves has become a favourite hang-out for musicians and music lovers alike.
The food is based on first class domestic ingredients and loving artisan execution, always taking into consideration the changing seasons and timeless traditions.
Ilves takes great pride in its wine list trying always to find new good quality wines from interesting vineyards. This same philosophy drives Ilves also to expand selection of beers and ales.
On weekdays Ilves serve lunch between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. (Friday’s long lunch continues until 4 p.m.), after which you can choose from à la carte menu.
Open today 11-22
