Very nice restaurant in city centre. Own distillery and intriguing menu. Try rain deer or steak. I had crème brulee with whisky - one of the best deserts for a very long time. The menu is in the expensive range, but worth it. Not to fast service, but professional and smiling.

"Taivaanranta" is still in my opinion one of the absolute best restaurants in Lahti. It is also probably the coziest restaurant I have visited anywhere and the service excellent. Thus it was a bit disappointing that the beef this time did not really fulfill my and my friend’s expectations. A “medium” beef was “well done+” and the ”well done” one... More

Very nice restaurant, with attractive ambient and elegant service. The price is slightly high, even compared with the local average, but the food is good and well presented. I personally don't like the home-brewed beer as I find it definitely too light, but it's just personal taste.

Located at the city center Taivaanranta is one of the best restaurants in Lahti. Service is professional and friendly. Food is usually very good. Lunch has very good quality-price ratio. Wine list is good and wines are served at correct temperature. Taivaanranta is part of Teerenpeli company which has own brewery and whiskey distillery and those beers, ciders and whiskies... More

We had a over ten persons troupe. We hadn´t done any reservation in advance for day time lunch. Restaurant wasn´t particularly crowded, maybe more empty. I have always thought, that Taivaanranta is one of the best restaurants in the city of Lahti. Our coming there based on that knowledge. This time it felt like there weren´t enough staff in the...

It is not very usual, at least in Scandinavia, to have this all under the same company. Located at the very center of the city this restaurant serves excellent variety of local and European dishes, well prepared, beautifully served, smooth or well seasoned dishes in easy to be comfort atmosphere. And the price range is superb, Their own beers have... More

Went there to have dinner for three. Interior was nice and the waitress very friendly. We ordered liver, sausage mix and corn chicken breast. Service was quite slow but when we finally got our meals, we found them very tasty and beautiful. But the size: especially liver portion was a miniature size. So, if you feel hungry, choose another restaurant... More

I had a business dinner at Taivaanranta in March 2014 and their Kaski menu was one of the best dinners I have ever had!! Good balance, super good value, professional service especially with drinks to fit the menu and every piece of the menu good or super. Nice atmosphere, and really a restaurant worth visiting! Three course menu without drinks... More

Very few vegetarian options and very small portion sizes. As there is only one vegetarian starter (which is basically the same as the main course - beetroots with chèvre for starter and pumpkin with chèvre for main) we ordered a green side salad which was 5€. It was large but it came with no dressing- so just green salad leaves... More

Taivaanranta is regarded as one of the "better places" to dine in Lahti. The decor is nice and the staff is friendly. The only problem we have faced is the lack of consistency; usually the food is very good but every now and then the food served can be bland as if some ingredients have been forgotten. There has also... More
