The Story of Emo

“We were on holiday in Madeira together with the family. When we walked to the fish harbour, we got to be a bit behind with my youngest son Axel. He picked up a beautiful egg-shaped stone, which he showed me.

I took it into my hand and at the same moment I decided that my next restaurant should be named Emo. The aesthetics of an egg is the greatest in the world, the egg is just gorgeous in all its symbolism.

For us the craftsmanship of food is very important and we want to offer our guests an experience that brings people together to enjoy high quality but still simple food spiced with warm-hearted service. Ilkka Lääveri, restaurateur and chef the cuisine, is in charge of our culinary world and Jan-Martin Rossi, restaurateur and restaurant manager, leads the front of the house.

I am really happy that our four years old restaurant has already been awarded a couple of times. We have received the Michelin Guide Bib Gourmand rating that is provided for restaurants with excellent food for affordable prices. Emo also rose in the White Guide listing to be among the best restaurants in the Nordics.

Our love for quality has thus proven to be successful.

That is just great!
