Finnish restaurant Bronda’s interior design was among The Guardian’s 10 coolest restaurant interiors.

High ceilings, big windows and a hint of the nautical were the things The Guardian mentioned in their article that brought up some of the most unusual and spectacular restaurant interiors around the world.

The interior is designed by Futudesign, Helsinki based multidisciplinary design office founded in 2012.

Name Bronda origins from the 1840s when the house was first built. In the 1920–30s Bronda was highly renowned bakery and café where the famous Finnish artists Eino Leino and Wäinö Aaltonen spent time. Restaurant owners, Finnish chefs Tomi Björck and Matti Wikberg wanted to cherish the tradition of the old house by using its original name.

The menu itself offers Mediterranean-inspired dishes from France, Spain and Italy. The bar offers snacks, salads, burgers and views of Esplanade Park.

The Guardian choice was based upon Gestalten’s new book, Let’s Go Out Again. Other Nordic restaurants that The Guardian handpicked were Mikkeller & Friends in Copenhagen as well as the Swedish Gotthards Krog located in Umea, northern Sweden.
