The best restaurant in Porvoo

As an ex-Porvoo citizen I am so delighted to see that there are nowdays several new good restaurants in Porvoo. We had a nice weekday lunch with my husband before going back home to France. Lunch menu is not available during summer, just the normal à la carte, so for a lunch the prices are somewhat... read more

Came here for lunch before heading to Malmgård. Have been visiting few restaurants occasionally in Porvoo and this is definitively the best one, both food and service. Location is on the other side of the river from the old Porvoo, but close by even by foot.

I have visitted with my husband the restaurant Sinne several times during lunchtime and we never have disappointed. Specially good choices have been starter soups and also fish main cources. I like the home made bread and local vegetables. Sinne means in Finnish go there - so I will recommend you to go there - Sinne!

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 prices are even higher than those in similar restaurants... More

After 1 hr 40 min. we had eaten appetizers and waited and waited for mains. When we asked our server why it is taking so long, she... More

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.
