This is a fairly small Finnish bistro. The atmosphere was cozy and intimate when we were there. The Italian motif didn't seem to suit the fact that it is a Finnish restaurant, but that may only seem unusual to foreigners. The food is good. The reindeer was prepared well in the typical Finnish style and was delicious. The snails (appetizer)... More

I had never eaten Reindeer before and I wasn't quite sure what to expect. If you are a meat lover this meal is for you! I was greeted at the door by a friendly face. I let her know I did not have a reservation and she nodded that it was fine while escorting me to a very nice table,... More

The hotel called ahead to see if they could make a reservation. Arriving at 8:30 there was one other table of diners. During the meal three others came in, one couple for dessert and the check their messages (they barely spoke to one another) but for a Saturday night it seemed odd not to be more busy. The food was... More

We had booked a table in advance, but when we arrived to the restaurant at the time reserved, the table had been given away. The personel had written the reservation in the reservation book at the wrong time, and as they do not gove written reservation confirmations, the customer is in a poir position in these cases. Poor service when... More

The place is cozy (despite the meaningless references to Italy on the walls, being the food not particularly Italian) and it has a good selection of food and beverages. I found the food to be OK, yet the ratio quantity-quality was barely ok, especially given the price. However, I find it hard to believe that it's possible to find anything... More

Roasted reindeer meat was excellent ; tender, juicy, fresh taste. Also tried a dessert made of cloudberry, and a coffee with a certain almond liquor, most impressive. Spacious nice restaurant , excellent service and staff.

I have visited Brahen Kellari now 2 times in a few months. The food has been excellent (starter main, dessert). Prices are not the cheapest but on a good level for the superb food. The place itself is also cousy, an old cellar but renewed with class. I recommend!

The place looks not at all like what it actually is from the outside. Good food - good service... I would clearly recommend the place for anyone around.
