Place where the locals meet

A typical chain restaurant with a little local twist. This an easy-going restaurant with affordable food. This a restaurant where you are probably most likely to meet also local people dining.

We visited Fransmanni in Vassa and loved the food so here we were again finding another Fransmanni! Warm beautiful old fashioned interior, we were sat at nice leather boxed seats. We ordered Bouillabaisse and Salmon croque madame both come with potato wedges. I just love potato wedges from Fransmanni. Everything tasted perfect and the service was great too. Ordered a... More

First dinner to be in Rovaniemi, staff there is attentive and friendly. Normally they only sell mussel on a Friday, we are lucky to be able to get it on a Thursday evening. Good there are nice, and price are average.

I've eaten here for many years and have always found the food to be great, and the staff to be very helpful and friendly. There is also a big screen for watching the football in the bar area. For me this is definitely a place to visit when im visiting Rovaniemi.

After several meals with reindeer and salmon I wanted to try something different so I chose the chicken in pepper sauce and it was delicious. They anyway also have lappish food. We had... More

Highly recommend a visit if you're in the area. Nice atmosphere and absolutely great service from a warm, friendly staff. This menu is French inspired, serving international cuisine, however, we stuck with the Finnish specialty menu and were not dissappointed, the food was delicious. I had the reindeer tenderloin, my wife, the sauted reindeer, and kids, the meatballs. All were... More

Dined few times here during my stay in the hotel. Service each time was very professional and kind in very Finnish subtle way. From what I overheard from other tables, seems that most if not all of the staff speaks English quite fluently. Food was good every time and came up reasonably fast. Everything was solid Fransmanni quality. Absolutely a... More
