Lovely wedges!

Had the best potato wedges I've ever tasted, crispy outside and melting soft inside! Potato wedges come with many dishes. We were only there for a late night snack and didn't expect much but we were wrong! Atmospheric decor inside helped us have a relaxing dinner too.

You will probably not be dining alone. The place is cosy and easy, and the menu has a good variety of almost everything. Service is friendly. The only thing I would preferred more is more local food as the menu is the same as everywhere else in Finland. Only one local specialty was introduced when I was here the last... More

The bread was warm and soft, the meal was delicious. The meat and potatoes were cooked the way it should, sauce was really good too. The waitress is friendly and accomodating, the ambience was comfortable. I highly recommend this place.

The best thing going for this restaurant is probably that you can stick the bill on your room number if you're staying at the Royal Vaasa hotel and, sadly, that's about it. The menu you looked promising but what was served up was a little disappointing. The starter choices were limited and very unusual combinations. The meat (Lamb) was severely... More

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
