We ate twice at this restaurant during our stay in Hämeenlinna, and enjoyed it both times. Friendly service and great ambience.

Like earlier, the interior of the restaurant is very nice and it creates a good starting point to nice dinner with family. Last time food itself wasn't so delicious, but this time I was very happy to find that everybody was very happy about the taste and presentation of the food. My pepper steak was especially juicy and more tasty... More

In my opinion this is the best restaurant in Hämeenlinna. Good service and atmosphere, professional kitchen. I recommend fish and the special icecream of this restaurant. I visit here quite often when I drive to my destination. I suppose to have perfect dinner here if I have time to stay the whole evening in Hämeenlinna.

Living and working in Hämeenlinna, I have visited in Piparkakkutalo many times. Mostly the taste and quality of the food is between good and very good, and the service is between average and good. The menu includes quite wide range of traditional courses as well as local and seasonal specialities. The atmosphere is very nice but nothing fancy or extraordinary.... More

2 x 2 course meal under € 60.oo is very good value. And when the starter is as good as I would make at home (practised this since 1977) and better than I have had for at least three years, the food is excellent. Her Fish of the Day was again perfect, my liver was not rosé as ordered and... More

I happen to live in town, so I've been able to give Piparkakkutalo 3 changes now. And however much I wanted to like the place, I've been disappointed every time. Service is basically good, but then, even in a not-that-busy night the waiters forget you immediately. It takes time to get the menu. You order your drinks, but they do... More

It is not always true that number 1 on tripadvisor is really the best restaurant to visit. But this time it truly worked. Very nice place with excellent service and cozy atmosphere. We had late lunch as a couple. As a starter we took cream soup and Solyanka. Second one for my Russian taste was perfect, while cream soup was... More
