I have visited this rasteurant since i was a little girl. Atmospheric and cosy restaurant. Nice service, good wine list. If you want to have for examble a good steak, this is place to go in Jyväskylä.

This was very nice place for some good beefs and good wine. Good service even if it was quite a busy evening. Enjoyed this place a lot!

I liked the food, sophisticated but not exaggerated, and very tasty. Very good home made bread. For South European traveller not cheap at all, but from all the "good" places in this city, I think this one has the best relation quality-price. I will certainly repeat in my next visit in Jyvaskyla.

I have eaten many times in this relatively small restaurant. Food is typical finnish so you do not find any asian specialities here. Athmosphere is great and food is always good. Service is great also eveytime. Log legend which is famous in Finland. I can recomment to all tourists also.

Had visited this resaturant once before and not been disappointed on either occasion. The reindeer fillet was excellent - highly recommended. The wines were good, though the prices are expensive in Finland for all wines.

Quality food, nice service, great atmosphere. I recommend garlic snails for starters. The main courses are all excellent, especially the steaks are spot on.

As it was one of the really rare heat wave days in Finland (read: max 3 day a summer) folk was out at "terassi" for drinking beer, and the place was empty. But the dinner was very good (we picked fish plates to begin and as main) as well as the service too. Prices were moderate. Strong recommendation in Jyväskylä.

Kissanviikset (Black Cat) is a great restaurant for upmarket dining. It isn't pretentious but it's a cut above the rest and good for romantic meals, private dining or entertaining business clients.

It is small enough, with no much room inside. Very romantic atmosphere, light is near darkness. Very taste and non-common meals. It seems that it is ideal place for pair. The kitchen seems European with some parts of Mideterranian. The reservation may be needed.

More than 10 years this restaurant has been my favourite in Jyväskylä. This place is good place to eat and enjoy when I visit in town (about 1 - 2 times during every year). Food is great, best in town.
