This restaurant is a gem for many reasons: the historical architecture with the brick walls and vaulted ceilings make the atmosphere unique and warm. The staff is polite and the food...the food is beyond words: the Fillet of beef à la maison with Finnish blue cheese and Madeira sauce was simply perfect as was the Meringue with rasberry and blueberry...

I made a table reservation using phone and it was smooth and quick. We arrived about 15 mins early but everything was ready even the water was already served. At first we took drinks one vodka with buckthorn and one sparkling wine. Then the local fish plate with salmon, small herrings and cooked potatos. As a main course we eat... More

Food was good but prices perhaps a bit steep. The place was in the basement of the City Hall and it had beautiful brick vaults. Really nice athmosphere.

I just used to love this restaurant. I am a fan of cellar restaurants and especially on Christmas time. I took some customers here and we were disappointed because the food was not it should be and what used to be years ago. I had a soup (mustajuurikeitto = blackrootsoup) and it was too creamy with just a very mild... More

we have visited this restaurant during the last two jazz festivals. The location of the restaurant is excellent within walking distance from the river and the main jazz happenings. BUT the service is far from excellent. Both our visits were nearly ruined even though the reservation was made about one month in advance. At the first time the restaurant was... More
