Ateneum Bistro serves museum visitors and foodies in general classic Finnish bistro dishes with a modern twist. If you’re looking for a place to enjoy some salad, white fish with a Finnish way or a burger in an iconic environment and be sure you’ll get what you ordered Ateneum Bistro is the place for you. Our chefs have put their own twist on some classics, for example, traditional Finnish salmon soup.
We want to provide visitors with the possibility to enjoy a quality lunch and dinner when visiting Ateneum Art Museum. We also serve customers from outside the museum, for companies near the museum Ateneum Bistro provides a fresh new lunch option. The art museum serves classics with a twist, and so do we.
The restaurant serves lunch and dinner as well as coffee and small savoury/sweet snacks according to Ateneum Art Museum’s opening hours.

This delightful tradition is often looked upon as a small afternoon delight to get you going until supper and customarily consists of sweets, small savory bites like sandwiches and the staple of British identity - a nice sturdy pot of tea.
Why should the British have all the fun, right? We wanted to bring the concept of afternoon tea into the 21st century and the picturesque Ateneum art museum. Think of our afternoon tea as a peaceful (and tasty!) oasis in the hectic bustle of the world, a small moment in which to treat yourself.
