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.

Have visited this restaurant on several occasions and can wholeheartedly recommend it. The menus are now in English and Finnish the choice is excellent from the pizzas, pasta and soups to the reindeer and horse meat. If you have room after your main and included salad bar starter the desserts are superb.

There is really nothing very good here. Food poor and tasteless, hamburger worst I've ever had, bun unedible & bricklike, sauce tasteless, cheese a lump. I lived close to it so I tried it 2-3 times too, never much other positive that a full stomach. Unfortunately not much to choose from for a foodie in Kotka.

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.
