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.

On a Saturday afternoon the place was busy but not nearly full. The staff seemed to be very young. After ordering the food we had to wait for quite a long time. The food itself was ok although I've had better meals at Fransmanni. We also made a mistake by wanting dessert too, it was another long wait. I wonder... More

Fransmanni is a chain restaurant which you can find in many Finnish towns. Although we avoid going to these chain restaurants in Helsinki, Fransmanni Vaasa is for us the place to go whenever we go to Vaasa. This was probably our fifth visit and we have never been let down by the food or service. The food is very good... More

This is simply a good restaurant. I tried their offering in French specialties and it was fine. My starter was escargots, and they were nearly as good as I get them in France. The mussels I had as main course were also good (albeit a bit small) and tasty. Merlot wine was fine, too. But above all, I was served... More

Vaasa's Fransmanni has improved during last years. We had small group visiting place during last weekend. Salads are fresh and tastier in their new menu. "overcooked" (== cooked long period with low heat) main cources are tasty. Desserts are bit ordinary one, but I liked a bit twisted creme brule. New plates are frayed, which is definitely a minus -... More
