Good food

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.

This was my first time in this restaurant when it got these owners.It was normal Wednesday, but the restaurant was fully booked. So if you like to get a table make reservation in advance. 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.

We went to C specifically to try their longest menu and we surely got what we were looking for. Their seurustelumenu had 16 courses, not including the amouse-bouches or petits fours. For such a long menu it is quite an achievement that there were no clear disappointments and we were intrigued till the end of the menu. That necessitates both... More

If you would like to taste rose petal-infused wine crystals, or "the lichen that deer eat" gathered personally by the chef and filled with a red cabbage reduction, or rhubarb dessert with its intense sour-sweetness accompanied by greens of the forest, then "C" is your destination. Located across from the train station, a grey door leads into a subdued, small... More

Small but nice and fine restaurant. I'm not any fine dining person but I have to admit that such foodious adventure can be very delicious and make a lot of fun at sametime.
