Excellent place to have a lunch

This restaurant has an excellent scenery over the lake Vesijärvi. The restaurant is maybe hard to find if you don't know the place. But ask! I have often eaten lunch here and food is always very good. Seasonal variation and selection is fine and remarkable. Prices are quite high, in fact. Sometimes... read more

We had been to this restaurant which is on the lakeside at Lahti and next to the Opera House. The food is good, but a bit expensive. The presentation of the dishes is very good and the food taste also lives upto the presentation. The service staff are very friendly and helpful in suggesting the specialities. They also took care...

Casseli close to the Sibelius House in Lahti is unfortunately in winter time not a place that you are visiting by mistake. You have to know the restaurant and you have to go there for purpose to have a good meal. Do visit it if you have a chance. Lunch is excellent and the restaurant has “class”.

One of best restaurants in Lahti. Food and service is fine. Price level is higher than other places in Lahti but wouldn't you pay a little bit more for quality. This is the place that you should choose for dining.

Casseli is a restaurant in Lahti that should earn more attention (and customers) than what is the case. Unfortunately a normal tourist will not find this restaurant by mistake as it is situated in the harbor of Lahti and a bit outside the city centre. However, the location is one good reason to visit Casseli. The view from the restaurant... More

You are might be surprised that there is a quality restaurant in a town like Lahti, but there is! We visited Casseli on a Saturday afternoon and ate the lunch menu. Starters we even better than the main course, so remember to taste everything, you won't be disappointed. I ate bass (fresh water, not sea bass) and it was good.... More

All I can say about Casseli Ravintola is wow! A gem like this in a small town like Lahti was a welcome departure from the downtown eateries. The food was magnificent, the wine selection excellent and the location (on the harbor) perfect. Whether you coose fish of meat (like reindeer) it is prepared so tender that you don't need a...
