Nice atmosphere, great food, friendly service

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.

This is unique dining place just right in down town of Lappeenranta. Nice atmosphere in old wooden house, quite a few outdoor tables in summertime as well. Good service, good food, albeit not extraordinary. I visited lunch time and it was really busy (both locals and tourists). My portion of pasta was rather good. On lunch time you can choose... More

Thanks to TA tips we just had dinner in Wolkoff. Good service, lovely place and superb food. Especially their tomatosoup with smoke flavour was great, also duck and trout which our daughter ate. Why we do not have more places like this in Finland?

Wolkoff is one of our favourite restaurants in Finland! We visit the restaurant only a couple of times a year, but it's always been wonderful. During our 2-week holiday this July we ate at Wolkoff twice, and everything was excellent both times. The food is delicious and beautifully presented with herbs and edible flowers, and the selection of wines by... More

Was in town looking for a place to have lunch, and after walking around awhile ended up here as it was the closest thing we found to a proper lunch place. Lucky us for picking it! The price was reasonable for everything we got. Everything was homemade, could have eaten a loaf of that wonderful bread. For lunch there was... More
