Traditional restaurant with excellent food

Best possible service in the middle of Lappeenranta. The restaurant is quite small but very nice and traditional from 19th century. We have visited several times the local and have always been good served with a tasty lunch. It is a buffet and you can choose between two or three main courses. The... read more

Excellent food, excellent service on on cold winter Saturday night. This is my favourite restaurant in Lappeenranta because of the atmosphere and their passion for food and wine.

If it's lunch you're after, then Wolkoff is definitely worth checking out. The lunch specials are guaranteed to be delicious and are always prepared from fresh, quality ingredients (often seasonal). For 15€ you can choose between two mains, and help yourself to as much as you like from the soup & salad table. Freshly baked bread, as well as coffee/tea... More

If you feel like eating out nice - this is your place. Menu change quite often, so it is worth visiting several times a year. Good vine selection. Wintertime put woolsocks on... The flooring is from early days of 1900, so you'll feel the breezzzz

As a resident of Lappeenranta, I tend to value private-owned restaurants and not those run by national or international chains. This restaurant is the ultimate choice when you want to have good service, value for the money and very tasty, locally sourced food. I have never stepped out disappointed. Of course the price range makes my visits quite rare, but... More

We found this small restaurant not far from Lappeenranta's center. Old-style wooden house, massive wooden chairs, tables and benches. Tasty and inexpensive food.

Must say that the food has always been outstanding and full of flavors every time wether having lunch or dinner during the past 10 years. Service is professional, not overwhelming friendly but not bland either. Allthough the price level is commonly considered high in Lappeenranta, compared to Helsinki they have a permanent 30 % discount on the menu. Do recommend!

Walkoff is a cosy and high quality restaurant in a beautiful, old wooden house. We had a great lunch (mushroom soup, salad and a main course) for 15 euros. Great value for the money.

We had a quick bite to eat in the Wolkoff pub/wine cellar area of this establishment recently. The food was tasty, the staff were knowledgeable and friendly, and the wine list was superb. Would not hesitate to recommend this place to anyone who wants to enjoy good food and wine in a cosy atmosphere while visiting Lappeenranta.

I know the Wolkoff now for 17 years. Since then I have visited the place countless times. I was always a complete success. This starts with the nice atmosphere in a classic, wooden house, goes over the well balanced, always seasonal and fresh menu and finally comes to a real nice and wonderful choice of wines. The service is just... More
