Restaurant Kissanviikset offers very good selection of home made food. Family owned place. Well known about beef but also fish dishes are good. Not too big place pls. Make an reservation for table.

Foodgasm! Here you will find everyday food, salmon, steak, chicken, fish done to absolute perfection and to order as you like them and presented as works of art on the plate. The combination of real taste and good taste went from start to finish. I went from a plate of snails gratinée to lemon crème brulé with licorice sauce, my... More

Our table was situated in the down floor, and there service was very slow and we received the meals in very different times. This was a bit surprising as the restaurant is one of... More

We found this place accidently, but it tourned out to be very lucky accident, because the restaurant was magnificient, very nice atmosphere and the food was excellent. Not very cheap, but well worth the money!
