Great place to eat fabulous food. The portion sizes for starters and dessert are very small but the mains are plentiful, and all are delicious. Our waitress was wonderful and very friendly. Sadly she was only person working so service was very slow. Still, worth the wait!

Old classic never fails. Been here several times with colleagues and also with quests. Show's why Vasa is a Top Business Town. Portions are sizewise OK, and always in balance.

Absolute a place to go to when in Vaasa. Great ambiance (former coal cellar), personnel, service and food! A true pleasure for your taste buds!

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'd give 10 points if possible. We had the GW7 menu with seven courses including wine package. Price a little bit on the high side but worth every cent. Absolutely perfect combination of small meals. Many such places serve the jewel in the middle but these guys went all the way to the end increasing enjoyment. Some of the wine... More

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
