Palace Wine List

About Palace

The only restaurant in Helsinki to hold two Michelin stars has a great location overlooking the harbour and the old Market Square. Quite understandably for a 2-Michelin star restaurant, the wine list is extremely pricey, but nonetheless has various verticals of top wines around the world. A pairing menu is also on offer and some of the top wines in Finland are served and enjoyed here. The kitchen staff comes to the tables to serve the dishes and the wine service is flawless.

More recommendations

  • A classic list with a lot of verticals and many well-known producers, says jury member Marc Almert, Best Sommelier of the World 2019, about the Palace winning gold in Best Medium-Sized List in Star Wine List of the Year Finland 2021.

  • Established already in 1952, Michelin star-restaurant Palace has for long been one of the very best restaurants in Helsinki, with its eclectic high-end food and beautiful roof-top location with a view over the sea. During weekdays Palace is usually packed with business people, and during weekends with foodies and gourmets from all over the world, so make sure to make a reservation if you want to dine here. If you only want something to drink, there’s a small bar next to the restaurant where you can have premium cocktails and top-notch wines, always flawlessly served.

    The wine list contains a great range of wines from mainly classic countries and regions, like Champagne, Burgundy, Bordeaux, Germany and Tuscany, and there’s plenty of affordable-prices older vintages to find. Some New World countries and lesser-known European countries are also featured on the list, even though the classics rule.
