the cat's whiskers!

Many of the high quality restaurants are closed on Sunday evening. It doesn't matter though, Kissanviikset did a splendid job! Snails gratinated with parmesan were among the best we ever have had. Filet of baby lamb on onion potatoe bed and green salad decoration completed the excelent dinner. The wine selection offered a large choice. The service was excellent! We... More

I've been visiting Kissanviikset for more than 30 years, and the food hasn't been a disappointment ever. Service is not anymore (after Kati) at top level, but other than that it is just wonderful.

Four of us went to dinner on a quiet Monday evening. The restaurant is small and charming. The food and service are excellent! Two of us had the reindeer (Santa probably has only 7 left for next Christmas), one had the lamb and the fourth had a steak in morel sauce. All dishes were well prepared, served with grilled fresh...

Kissanviikset is a special place in Jyväskylä. The decor is a little tacky but homey and the food is wonderful. It is many steps about other area restaurants and won't break the bank. The service is great and they have some nice wines to choose from. It isn't the type of place you go once a week, but visiting a... More

Fine food, but side of the meal is big. Small restaurant, so it may be wise to make A reservation. Quiet, and tidy.

Eaten here twice, both times were fantastic! Love the food, great service, calm and peacefull place and very romantic. Best vegetarian food I've tasted in Finland. Maincourses are at 20-40€ (same price as a basic burger a cross the street) so you can eat cheap or over the top, it's your choice. Recommend it to everyone! Just to be sure,... More

This was a nice surprise, nice name and a restaurant with a cat theme. It is a small restaurant with few tables and very comfortable. Food was ok and kitchen was fast. Service was excellent. Something that I liked very much was a fresh just made coffee! It was included in the meal, as was the refill, plus for this.
