Located down an unassuming street in the heart of Helsinki, Hello Stranger was born with selfish thoughts in mind. We wanted a place that we never wanted to leave. So, we opened a restaurant and a lounge, and when Finnish weather allows, a terrace!

We wanted a place we could come for drinks, come for food and always, above all always feel good from the service.

We follow a simple formula; relaxed atmosphere, seasonal menu, satisfying drinks and a stellar team.

Come as a stranger and leave as a friend.

something on your plate

Our menu is influenced by the seasons, daily catch, and the tastiest vegetables we can get our hands on. We take Finnish ingredients and include a touch of international imagination.

The kitchen allows the food to do the talking, executing simple dishes with a sense of freedom, utilizing one ingredient in multiple ways and allowing it to shine on its own.

Unwind in our chef’s menu where we allow our chefs to push themselves creatively while intertwining our seasonal menu.

something in your glass

Our neon sign shines bright in the lounge “a stranger is just a friend you haven’t met yet” and truly our lounge welcomes you with that vibe all night long.

Our cocktails share the same love from our kitchen, local ingredients while adding international flair. We pride ourselves on fresh juices, house made syrups and a curated list of spirits. Our bartenders are experienced and passionate, always smiling and up for chat.

In the ever-evolving wine world our team strives to keep a balance of new world and old world. We select vintages from across the world. Our enthusiastic team are able to lend you their expertise through our selection, ensuring you find the right taste for your palate

As both the “by the glass” list and bottle lists are ever evolving they are not listed on the website. However, you can always contact us to discuss any particular needs.
