This used to be my favourite restaurant in Porvoo. Unfortunately, the restaurant is not what it used to be. Maybe opening a new restaurant in Helsinki has lessened the importance of the original Porvoo restaurant...or the staff has changed too much. The food does not impress so much anymore and the... read more

Visited the restaurant last night for the very first time. I have read several positive reviews and the restaurant definitely exceeded all the expectations. I started with the pumpkin seed soup which was soooooouuuu good =) I am not a burger eater but have become more more interested in the gourmet burgers. So I tried the burger with the goat... More

Delicious dishes from local ingredients. The daily menu is an interesting concept also. It even changed during our dinner, so it really is very agile and that's why not available in web. A bit expensive, especially the wine menus.

One of the best meals I've ever had. Their attention to detail and quality ingredients is what all restaurants should be striving for.

The food was great, unfortunately the rest of the experience was a big let down. Poor and inattentive service.

Had a wonderful early lunch here a few weeks ago. Even during the summer holiday season, we were seated immediately without a reservation. Often something I skip or ignore at most restaurants, their bread was to die for. It incorporated spelt and caraway beautifully. Each dish was a work of art. I would highly recommend the gazpacho!
