EGO NEIGHBOURHOOD RESTAURANT

New stories.
Strong classics.

Ego is a neighbourhood restaurant where you are always welcome – a laid-back place for everyone who enjoys good food, drink, company and stories.

As our head chef Kalle Tanner puts it, “Food should not be taken too seriously. A good feeling is reflected in how your food looks and tastes. Too much effort makes food superficial, lacking in soul and warmth. Good food can be not only delicious, but also a little playful.”

We are located in a building modelled after the palaces of Florence, completed in 1889. We are not quite as fine as Florence, but we serve favourite classics – and create future favourites. Welcome!

MENU

“Our classic dishes are like good friends you want to see again, time after time.
Our changing dishes arise from inspiration and experimentation – future classics, perhaps.”
Kalle Tanner, Head Chef
