I was here only for lunch. I order salad with 3 chosen fillings . I chose salmon, marinated shiitake mushroom and fresh pineapple. Spinach soap was included in lunch but it was very bland and watery. The salad was also disappointment : base salad was only basic flavourless iceberg lettuce and "salmon" was strange paste and mushrooms was also quite... More

Lunch was plentiful. Steak was ripe and very tasty. The atmosphere at lunch time was immediate. Reasonably priced. Open the WLAN network was available. The decor is interesting. Some of the walls have been left rough coated, without paint, as well as a toilet. An interesting detail. I recommend.

Rating this restaurant is not easy. I should give 5 points, if only thinking the level of restaurant. But I am a typical man, who wants to eat a lot, when going to restaurant. Os don't offer that. Instead OS is one of the most celebrated restaurants in Kuopio and if one is looking for top quality dinner place, then... More

This restaurant is diveded mainly into Fine Dining and Brasserie. I was at the Fine dining at I was given the choice between short and long menu with fixed price (you don't know what's inside it's a surprise). I chose the long menu with 7 courses and the wairess warns you that it takes 4 hours for the long menu... More

We had a 7 course dinner. It was mainly very good, but the main course duck was a bit too bloody. The wine selection to the dinner was expensive, the glasses very small. But of course its better than any chain-restaurant in Kuopio

Spending the weekend in Kuopio with friends we had booked dinner at Os, hoping for great things. Many of us were disappointed. The starter - a wild mushroom mousse topped by an egg cooked at a specific temperature - was an odd combination and served in completely the wrong dish with a knife and fork when a spoon was called...

After a couple restaurant trials in Kuopio I was not sure if the food and drink would be any good but luckily my local business connections recommended OS. They had two options for dinner "short" or "long". The short was so good and so much to eat that I couldn't have eaten a thing more. The food was modern and... More

We were passing by Kuopio and wanted to look for a nice restaurant for lunch. I found Ravintola Os in Tripadvisor and it seemed interesting. It was a real pearl! The price of the lunch was reasonable 12€ and we had best roast beef and sweet potatoes ever! Even a delicious soup included in the lunch that day. We also... More

We almost missed the entrance, because it is situated between to other restaurants. The place itself is donstairs. You'll find an open kitchen, which give the restaurant a nice athmosphere. Unfortunately we were placed behind a large pilar, so we could not see a lot. Service was great, but a little strict. "You can't drink that wine with your meal!"... More

As a local, I try to visit OS as often as I can. The place is really ambititious, changing the menu on almost weekly basis. The best part is, the prices are really affordable: lunch is 8-13€, dinner more. Some time ago I had an excellent three-course dinner with two wine glasses for 68€. The place is likely to change...
