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

I went to Wolkoff's twice during my week in Lappeenranta. The place is not too big, therefore quite cosy. The staff is nice and smiling, which is always a plus. The food I had for dinner was excellent, very tasty, well cooked and nicely presented. The only downside is the price, really expensive for someone not living in Scandinavian countries,... More

Very good food for a reasonable place specially at lunch time. The sallad buffet is various and and the bread is freshly baked. Main course is served to the table. Friendly staff and wonderful ambiance in one of Lappeenrantas oldest wooden houses.

We went to have a dinner with our friends on May Day Eve. We had a table reservation. Food was delicious and the service was very friendly and warm. Good atmosphere!
