Great food & service

Booked table through raflaamo, fast & easy. The food was really great. We had vegetarian menu and escargots & salmon brios. Everything was delicious. Good wine selection and excellent service.

Well done ok food, nothing special. Prices a bit high. Meat imported?? This was what the waiter told me. One thing this restaurant should start thinking about, is the green environment friendly. How is the food made, transported, slaughtered etc etc Some sort of ethics... Table cloth was very dirty so we changed to another table, something that was not... More

We visited on a Saturday evening the restaurant in November and had a very nice young man, Jens, as our waiter. Great service and the chanterelle soup was delicious. I had lamb, which as excellent, while the rest of us ate beef.

Well, if I really want to go and have a dinner or lunch out, I prefer not to eat in this kind of chain restaurants, but for the business trips, staying in the hotel next to it ... Some other time I have got better food in Fransmanni. They do change the menu time to time. This was not for... More

I spent my birthday in Vaasa Fransmanni. We had a reservation and we got a good window table. The waiters were nice and fast. Appetizer was a goat's cheese on a filo scroll and beetroot purée. It was really good - especially the beetroot puree. The main course was buillabasse. The soup was good but too salty for my taste,... More

French-inspired restaurant downstairs the Radisson hotel. The staff is extremely helpful, very nice and explains the menu well. The food is very good, a bit different from what you would get in Paris but the do a very good job.

We often seem to end up in Fransmanni, even though we have planned to go somewhere else for a change. I guess it is because of its casual and homy atmosphere, the inexpensive (for Finland) prices and of course the food, which most of the times is good. Of course we would wish for some innovations on the menu, but... More

If you want to have great food and excellent service this is the place to visit. A wide selection at quite high prices. Usually quite crowded without having to suffer from noise or a long waiting time.
