Welcome to Demo

"To share a laugh in the middle of culinary excellence"

Suomeksi | по-русски

 In 2003 two friends started a restaurant in downtown Helsinki. 

The idea was simple: make a down-to-earth restaurant for people to meet, spend time and laugh together. Then something surprised the audience: the food was simply astonishing. After receiving international attention, Demo was the first bistro-styled restaurant in Finland to receive a Michelin Star recognition. And we’ve held it since 2007.

The restaurant

We believe in great food as a bonder between people enjoying time together. Demo is dedicated to providing the best environment for this, with a flawless basic design but no extra fuss. One is allowed to laugh hard. And forget the tie.

This touch has made us a standard for aware families, business people and Helsinki visitors who want to build uniquely memorable experiences with uniquely memorable food.

Our catering service offers also a possibility to get the Demo experience anywhere you are.

The Demo kitchen

There is no mystery in our philosophy: try everything and serve excellence. We draw our ideas from French and other European cuisine and mix it with the unexpected. As a whole, every dish is full of strong, honest and unembellished flavour.

And an other thing is sure: no one leaves hungry.


Long time friends Tommi Tuominen and Teemu Aura founded Demo as a demonstration of their culinary vision in 2003. In the decade to follow our family has seen new members arrive and old members fly from the nest. New ideas have been born here, such as the sleek Restaurant Grotesk and the astonishing Patisserie Teemu & Markus. We have worked, sweated and shouted like never before.

All the same, after 10 years we can only say one thing: we’ve had the time of our lives.

Demo is all about the Burgundy

We believe in the honest wines of the Old Continent. Our exceptional wine cellar consists of over 400 different types of enthusiastically selected wines. Driven by ambition, our staff has over and over again been thanked for their subtle understanding of the bottled flavours our cellar can offer.

In addition to the unique wine cellar, we manage a daily flow of different wines to match the chef’s menus.

We believe that astonishing food can make any occasion an experience. Our catering service offers a possibility to get the Demo experience anywhere you are. We provide the touch of our kitchen to intimate gatherings around a common table.

Unfortunately, we can’t provide buffet dinners, large group receptions or events needing substantial props.
