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. We had a 5 course dinner, which included small portions of interesting mix of ingredients made with lot of care. Several greetings from kitchen were a nice... More

Restaurant C is an A class place. Small and cosy interior. Excellent service, simple and good menu. Very tasty dishes with right size. Overall a really recommendable experience.

Visited restaurant C few weeks back with friends. Everything we had on plates were excellent, (2013 I was food travelling and managed to collect 11 Michelin stars) so I think that this review is given in right perspective. Comparing to my visits to different restaurants, Restaurant C is in good company and they have nothing to be ashamed of. Relaxing... More

C has been rated as one of the best restaurants in Finland since it's opening. My last visit left me disappointed, unfortunately. Service was good, wines excellent but the food lacked something... Nothing particularly to point to but none of the dishes created the wow effect you would expect. Dinner for two with wines 270€...a bit steep I would say.
