Tasty lunch for 15 euros

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

Very impressive food, tasty and first class presentation. Made to feel very welcome. Staff were very knowledgeable about the food and served in a very polite and professional way. Loved this place and if I come back to this area I will definitely treat myself to this wonderful experience again.

I visited for a lunch with a friend and collegue after a business meeting. The parents of my friends´ live nearby and visit the place often, for me it was the first time. The lunch time was just about over, so it was not very crowded anymore. The salad buffet was good and variable, especially the slightly cooked (or were... More

The tiny, old wooden house where this restaurant is located is situated right in the center of town so it's easy to get to. The place was packed but we managed to get a table for 3. Due to this the service was slowish, but the food good; much better than at the most faceless chain restaurants you find in... More

Short but very tasteful menu. Every meal is a delicious choice. Menu changes regularly. Very nice wine list also. The friendly staff knows what they are doing and can tell you about the food and wines they are serving. Lunch in the day time is good but the a la carte in the evening so much better. Atmosphere is also... More

Fresh and hearty food. Simple and sophisticated. Lunch special (Unlimited soup and salad; main dish; coffee and water for 15 Euro) are of excellent value.

Well after reading the reviews decided to check thanks place for lunch. Typical Finnish food nothing special at all and yes the waitress could definitely learn what it means to be friendly especially if one works in the hospitality business.

Food and service were excellent. The athmosphere of this place is also great and it was nice to have a little chat with the manager too. Highly recommended, but perhaps not a place to go with kids.
