Best place in Vaasa

We were a party of 5 who enjoyed an excellent business dinner - with the signature GW7 (7 courses) accompanied by the wine menu. The menu was well composed with several light courses to start with - including a delicious warm soup and a smoked Finnish salmon in a heavenly warm sauce. We got served a tasteful weal and some...

Service was very friendly and professional. A historical coal storage has turned into a coasy restaurant. We had a nice big room for the group of 19 people and we could enjoy the evening without "disturbing" others. Great favours and new fresh ideas on ingredients served during the evening.

I tried the 7 course tasting menu, and got mine milkfree and my friend got a vegetarian version of it. I'm amazed by the fact that I could make it milkfree! They managed to surprise me with the food anyway, and came up with interesting yet tasteful combinations. Overall the food was delicious, but a few of them didn't really... More
