Reindeer Sautee

We had reindeer sautee and it was delicious. Very smart staff. The portions are just perfect. However, the very hungry one will need a desert ;)

We stayed 3 nights in Original Sokos Hotel Vaakuna which runs the Fransmanni Testaurant as well. The atmosphere in the restaurant looks quite nice. I can say that the breakfast is quite satisfactory but can not say the same thing for the evenings. As we were already staying in the hotel we decided to have the dinner in Fransmanni. First...

Went for a dinner with high expectations.The service was friendly and fast eventho the restaurant was full.The menu was interesting and sounded good but unfortunately the food didnt live up to it.It was average and the portions are not big.Considering the price the food was definately a disappointment.

Wow, this is the place to eat. Great food and great service. Good kids menu too. Wide selection of local dishes to try alongside other international ones.

Made a reservation but was hungry and turned up early for dinner. They were very nice about it and sat us at a table. The English speaking waitress patiently introduced the menu to us. In the end, we ordered the Mushroom soup (which was nice), the reindeer meat (highly recommended) and the white fish (which was yummy too). The food... More

I have only been to this restaurant once, having an informal meeting with colleagues. One of us had been there many times and told me she always orders the liver because it is so unbelievably good. And so it was! I'm planning the next visit and then I'll maybe have the bouillabaisse that looked so good, too.

Really great restautant with perfect food. Raindeer sirloin is must have. A bit pricey but the quality of food was really oustanding.

Lunch can be good, otherwise I'm not that much a fan of this place. The food is good but it is just not for me I guess.

Well we all have our bad days but this should not show in working. The food have always been good! When you finally get it.... last two times we have been visiting Fransmanni some... More

Fransmanni restaurant supported my idea to hold a hitchhike workshop at their place. I received a neat room with projector and drinks for my guests and I couldn't think of a better location to have held it. Thanks again for everything!
