Helsinki’s accessible restaurants

Bas Bas

Helsinki has a wide range of restaurants, most of which are also fully accessible for users of assistive devices. At some restaurants, the accessible entrance may be different than the main entrance, and unfortunately most restaurants don’t provide information about accessibility on their websites. Therefore, it’s worth contacting the restaurant before your visit. Here’s a list of my favourite restaurants and those of my friends with reduced mobility, all of which are easily accessible also for wheelchairs.

Fisken på Disken

Fisken på Disken is a fish restaurant on the fifth floor of the Kamppi Shopping Centre that has excellent food and service. The restaurant is easy to get to using the shopping centre’s spacious elevators. Some of the restaurant’s tables are quite high, so it’s worth making a table reservation in advance and mentioning that you are in a wheelchair, especially on weekends. The Kortteli restaurant complex on the fifth floor of Kamppi has many other great restaurants too, all of which are accessible, plus the views over the city are amazing. The restaurants share WC facilities, including an accessible WC.

To get there, you have to endure a short stretch of cobblestones, but it’s definitely worth it. The restaurant has an accessible entrance through the gateway next to the main entrance, plus there is an accessible WC inside the restaurant.

Baskeri & Basso 

One of the most popular restaurants in Helsinki, the small and cosy Baskeri & Basso, affectionately known as BasBas, is also fully accessible.

Customers with special needs are welcomed with open arms, entrance to the restaurant is accessible, and there is an accessible WC. The menu also has lots of vegetarian options. BasBas is only open from Tuesdays to Fridays, and table reservations can be made up to a month in advance. It’s worth doing, as the tables go fast!
