Nice and also affordable

It is seconds to walk from the Sokos to the Ravintola. The air carries a garlic odor that draws one in. (If you love garlic) The reindeer pasta is very good along with many other selections on the menu. ANd more then enough to eat. The service is very good and the servers are most attentive.

Cosy old wooden house with taverna kind of interior. On Saturday evening it was crowded so at weekenends booking is recommended. For starters I ate creamy small salmon soup, which was delicious and not small at all. Main dish was reindeer pasta with creamy sauce. Reindeer was sliced in very thin parts which was a good idea.

This restaurant is located in a shabby old building but is cosy and comfortable inside, although a bit of in need of redecoration. Menu has plenty to choose from with reasonable price. Pleasant and helpful staff. Not slow but not recommended if you want to eat in a hurry.

Excellent food quality and quantity. Staff speak limited English as this is away from tourist areas, but the menu is available in English. Good service and cheery staff. Freshly cooked food.

Food tastes good, portions are nice sized and the pricing is really reasonable. Atmosphere is more like tavern than restaurant but if You put all the pieces together Canttiini is one of the best restaurants in Kotka.

Don't expect to get a fine dining experience here. I find the interior cozy if lacking style. But it has character and the food doesn't reflect the outside which seems to be falling apart. The food is really tasty here, which owes a lot to the generous amounts of cream in the sauces. I've been there twice had a Gorgonzola... More
