A real hidden gem

One of the best restaurants in Finland. Uses local products to create wonderful dishes. The wine list is also extensive.

Went to this restaurant since it was highly ranked, but have to say that it wasn't so good, as it comes to the food. Yes, the service was extremely good, the music was so much fun and the food was nicely presented. Nut when it comes to taste it was sometimes OK and sometimes just too "special".

Good food with excellent wines, may be pricy but worth going. Preferably with a good friend. The location is good, very close to railway station and the big department store.

The food was very good for all us (4 persons). We started with risotto with truffles and main course was pike-perch and as a desert we... More

Really enjoyed their burbot. Also service was on Michelin star level. The only issue for me was the restaurant interior (and exterior too) which just is not nice. The evening we dined here was very cold. This meant that every time someone opened the door we go frozen. Still I definitely recommend this restaurant and will visit them again next... More

Amazing in this uninteresting town with not a single good hotel to find C. A dream of a cuisine, modern, imaginative, excellent quality and reasonable prices. The whole staff is very dedicated, the chefs - everyone of them, not just the head guy - come out of the open kitchen and serve themselves interacting with clients. At least they know... More

Excellent food from sometimes surprising ingredients. I would call this fine dining but still casual enough to not be turning away.
