We are a restaurant and a cocktail bar that brightens your day. International influences meet Finnish small producers and modern British cuisine in this restaurant that prides itself with food that’s been made with the best seasonal ingredients available. The restaurant also features a fantastic cocktail and wine selection.

After a lovely dinner at our restaurant you can stay in our cocktail bar until early hours of the morning enjoying our drinks and listening to music in the company of friends.

After 10pm Hello Stranger is a k25 venue.


The Hello Stranger menu combines small local producers, seasons and our head chef Tom Hudson’s English background; the restaurant serves the best available seasonal products utilizing various cooking techniques, bold flavours and different influences in a candid manner.

We believe that food is best when experienced with friends. With that in mind our dishes are intended to be shared amongst the diners at the table. Starving? Order the whole menu! Just peckish? Enjoy a snack at the bar.


The Hello Stranger drink menu brings a wide range of different taste experiences, from cocktails, to an extensive wine list, to a variety of non-alcoholic options. The menu mirrors the restaurant philosophy: high quality products are combined with surprising flavours, seeking inspiration from international vibes and Finnish nature.

The bartenders are true professionals and passionate for their work. Leading the team behind the bar is Mari Seppälä, a PRO2018 winner, who always has a smile on her face. In Mari’s cocktails you can taste flavours of elderflower, spruce and popcorn, and the wine list brings you soft and sophisticated tones.



In the summer we are crazy about radishes!
We use them in our veggie kimchi and they go beautifully pickled with our scollops too.



Hello Stranger on ravintola ja cocktailbaari joka saa sut hyvälle tuulelle. Don’t be a stranger!
