Tapiontori: Tapiola haute cuisine
Tapiontori is the best -- and the only -- fine dining restaurant in the garden city Tapiola, nested in the southeastern corner of Espoo. The restaurant is located in one of the more subtle architectural landmarks of Tapiola, U-house. As Tapiola is quite compact, everything is in walking distance, including parking slots.
The restaurant has been carefully renovated in an old bank and the big glass windows create an illusion that you are sitting on a park. The bank heritage can be seen from here and there; for example, the wines are stored in the old vault.
The food is excellent and usually the place is packed during lunch hours and evenings. It's best to reserve the table beforehand, especially if your party has more than two people.

Curry Palace: The best Indian restaurant in Espoo
Curry Palace is the first and the best Indian restaurant in Espoo. The staff is always very friendly and polite. They make you feel relaxed and welcome.
Favorite Dish: If you are familiar with Indian food I highly recommend you to try chicken-jal-farzi. This is a very hot spiced chicken. Great experience. If you are not a friend of spicy food try for example meat thali. This is a selection of three meat dishes (lamb, chicken and beef), raitha, rice and Naan-bread. You should also taste Lassi which is a starter drink made of fresh yoghurt.

Tapiontori: Perhaps the only real restaurant in Espoo?
If you want to eat a dinner in a nice restaurant in Espoo, there really aren't too many choices! Usually people head to Helsinki, since it's very close.
However, there's a really good restaurant in Tapiola: Tapiontori. The restaurant is rather small, but has very fine and clean interior with nice design and the food is really good! On the menu there are not very much dishes, but the ones on the menu are very nice. I have never been disappointed here. Even though the restaurant is rather fancy, it's not one of those places, where you'd have to dress up in suit in order to fit in.
Of course, everything comes at a price, which is certainly not from the lowest end. Typical main courses at about 15-25 euros.
Escafe: Nice cafe
There’s no aboundance of restaurants in Tapiola, but you can find few places in the center to have a coffee or grab a bite of something. I had my first VT meeting with Soili in Tapiola and we went to Escafe, a nice place in Heikintori shopping center offering sandwiches, salads or sweet options (like the one we had) that goes well with coffee or tea.
There are about 10 Chico's restaurants in Finland, they are not my favourites but with the poor Espoo restaurants selection, I sometimes eat in this one in Olari as it close to the high-tech park with companies as Dell & Hewlett Packard.
Favorite Dish: The Fajitas are good here.
In Nuuksio Park you are free to use the grill facility, so remember to take some food with you, and drinks too.
Classic Pizza: Best Pizza in Finland
No doubt, one of the best Pizza places in Finland, a place where you can really get a good pizza to enjoy your meal. Worth to pay more here then the socking pizza's we usually get around here.
Bodom Lake Cafe
This is a coffee house of Bodom and also the sport club house. You can have here a full meal or just refreshments.
At the other door you can rent winter sports equipment and go ski in the winter.
