Bronda Restaurant is the fifth restaurant owned by chefs Tomi Björck and Matti Wikberg, located in the heart of Helsinki on Southern Esplanadi. It offers contemporary Mediterranean cuisine, based on the idea that “food is to be shared”: All dishes are served from large bowls in a very social style. The impressive interior is designed by Helsinki-based design studio Futudesign. It has a relaxed and charming atmosphere.

From Futudesign:

“The restaurant interior has three main spaces: cocktail bar next to the entrance, 7 meters high dining hall and private cabinets at the back of the space. The cocktail bar is a low intimate space made of warm and colourful materials such as brass, wood, marble and leather. The pattern of the tiled floor in the front bar has got its inspiration from the Helsinki sea chart. The custom made giant walk-in wine cabinet separates the cocktail bar from the dining hall. The large windows make the dining hall part of the street life with exiting views to and from the restaurant. The cabinet space can be divided into four smaller rooms or it can be used as an extension of the dining hall.”

In addition to the spatial design Futudesign has also designed most of the furniture, besides the chairs and the light fixtures.

Bronda is definitely worth a visit. If you can’t book a table, have a cocktail at the lounge bar to enjoy the fabulous interior and do some crowd watching.
