Friendly cosy excellent staff

Have been here many times with my wife and friends. Have never been disappointed. When they have the Munich beer festival offers you get the most stupendous meals. Also do a very reasonable lunch buffet. Judging by the numbers we are not the only people who like this!

Have been there about ten times. Nine out of ten the food has been very good. Atmosphere is always nice and cosy, but the level of service can vary a lot. Normally, at least during weekends, the place can get crowded and sometimes we had to wait for a free table. For me this is the Place in Lauttasaari.

The service was extremely slow, and when the food finally showed up it was below average. The drinks ordered never came and I had to get more water from a water tap next to the toilet. Not recommended by any means.

I visit this restaurant often. They have good a la carte and also different theme weeks along the year which means even more variety. Price-quality ratio is very good as prices are affordable and the several dishes I have tasted have all been superb.

Relax atmosphere, good food. We love this place because it has been a sort of second kitchen to our family for years. List includes traditional dishes (Finnish) and monthly campaings. We are always so welcome to come here :)

Casa Mare is often really packed. And has been for decades. That has less to do with the food, which is not that special in any way, than the neighborhood it is located at. Lauttasaari is a suburb with a clear identity because of its size (close to 20,000 people) and geography (it is an island). That leads to it... More

One of my favourite restaurants in Lauttasaari. Food is usually very tasty and the staff is polite. Casa Mare also has special themes throughout the year which are great, especially when it is pizza week!
