Lux Helsinki light festival is here already for the 9th time and this time around we are glad to see the festival accompanied by Lux Eat. We obviously concentrate on the eating part so you can have a look for more information about the light festival here.

Lux Eat is little bit similar to Syö viikot -concept when there’s food available for only 10€ around the city in different restaurants. One could say the biggest difference in Lux Eat is it is in a way more luxurious and by luxurious we mean in most of the places there isn’t just one special dish for 10€ but anything from all day breakfast to tasting menu at a reasonable price. It is great to see there are more traditional restaurants participating in Lux Eat.

We have picked our 5 favorite restaurants from the list of 25 restaurants participating. Our list of restaurants offers a nice variety of options including more classic restaurants like La Maison and newcomers like Citypie.
