About Apotek

Founded in an old pharmacy in Helsinki, this is a sister restaurant to Carelia with a somewhat similar focus on grower champagne, German rieslings and Burgundy from small producers. The place is a mix of a bistro and a wine bar and the dishes are perfect also for sharing.

The staff is very excited about wine and one can also pop into the small bar area or to one of the lovely terrace tables during summertime. The cheese plate is likely one of the best in town and there are truly some great wines on the list both from classic and up-and-coming producers. The wine list has nice lines written about the regions it features so it will keep you company if you’re visiting alone.

More recommendations

  • This wine bar opened in June 2020 and is located in a historical establishment that used to be an old pharmacy for more than 100 years. The wine bar has been eagerly awaited in this part of Helsinki. During summertime, they have a beautiful terrace just outside the restaurant!

    The wines are based around one wine importer's portfolio (owned by the same company), but it still shows a good selection by the glass and by the bottle, served with small dishes.

    The wines are mainly from small, not so well-known wine producers, who rely more on the wine inside the bottle instead of a fancy label and name on the bottle.
