Fired up for food
Meat, fish, seafood and vegetables. Straight from the pasture, deep seas and fertile land. We cook our food on an open fire. The fire elevates each ingredient to an entirely new level, deepening and highlighting its exquisite natural characteristics. Our food is easy to share and enjoy together.
Brasa’s open fire is burning in the historic atmosphere of the Senate Square in the heart of Helsinki. Welcome!
“We work intuitively, playing with fire.
Nothing but the best
Our ambition is clear: if something doesn’t meet our quality standards, you won’t find it on the menu. It’s as simple as that. How is this possible? We know the farmers who supply us with vegetables. We also know our suppliers of fish and seafood. They provide us with their best catch, every single day. We mainly purchase our meat from small farms. The products are carefully selected, and we dry-age the meat and fish ourselves. All our choices are guided by a burning passion to create the best possible result.
Fire is a good master (and so is Severi)
Our work at Brasa is grounded in a deep love for our craft. The atmosphere is exciting, and the open fire is hot, but the real warmth is created by people – by us and our guests. I’m interested in people, and I like to get to know our guests. It’s important to me to take good care of our customers and personnel. I listen to what’s in their hearts, and I even solve relationship problems, if need be. I want everyone to feel welcome here, no matter whether they want to enjoy company or a peaceful meal. Our wine list and cocktail bar complement the mood. It’s all about the attitude: ambitious and passionate, but not fussy.
Severi Lukkarinen – Restaurant Manager and Head Sommelier
Smoke and fire
Fire is an incredible element, and an open-fire grill is the right kind of grill. When meat or fish is cooked on an open fire, its natural fat drips onto the charcoal, flares up and seasons the meat. When grilling vegetables, I use vegetable oils. New ideas keep popping up in my mind. During a walk, I may suddenly find myself looking at a tree, wondering what kind of aroma its bark would lend to food on a grill. We use Japanese binchōtan charcoal, with spruce branches for added flavour. Every detail counts. We combine grilled food with fresh taste sensations. It’s a good balance.

Brasa’s bar is on fire!
With great attention to detail, our cocktail bar serves both passers-by and guests. We have two entrances: straight from the street (Aleksanterinkatu) and from Brasa’s dining rooms. Our cocktail bar keeps up with the times – globally and locally. Our drinks reflect the season, with wonderfully strong, fresh and crisp flavours. Our kitchen adds a bit to the blends – with smoke and heat naturally. Sit back, relax and let us take care of your evening!
For the love of wine
Our restaurant at Aleksanterinkatu 22 has the most gorgeous wine cabinet in town. Naturally, we serve classics such as Burgundy, Piemonte and Mosel, but true to its style, Brasa is not confined to traditions. Our experienced sommelier is innovative and finds the perfect pair for everything, be it a dish or a state of mind. We are always updating our wine selection with new additions, from classics to new natural wines, with great passion and expertise. Explore our selection and find your perfect match!
The sky is the ceiling!
Summer is here, and terraces are open. At Brasa, you can enjoy cold drinks and delicacies cooked over an open fire on our two terraces: Burtz and Bock.
Burtz is our large courtyard terrace. It’s open to everyone and can be accessed directly from Aleksanterinkatu. Bock on the Katariinankatu side can be booked for private events. So how about a party for a group of friends in the heart of the city? We have plenty of room: Bock can seat you and your 99 best friends. There is also a stage.
Our terraces offer a comprehensive selection of the best drinks in town, an extensive wine list and food cooked over an open fire.
On Friday and Saturday nights, a DJ plays music at Burtz from around 8 pm onwards. We are open under the summer sky until 3 am at weekends.
You can find our menus, wine list and DJs on our website.
