One of the best ones

Really nice five course menu with vine tasting in November. All the portions were at least good, most of them were excellent. Price for such a experience will be more than 100€ per person, but it's worth of it. Only minus is surrounding of the restaurant, which is still under construction. but... read more

Price for such a experience will be more than 100€ per person, but it's worth of it. Only minus is surrounding of the restaurant, which is still under construction. but inside it's trendy and ok atmosphere.

I had a good business dinner at the bistro. By surprise we came on a evening that the restaurant had a new concept (only on November Tuesdays) when all guests have the same menu and after the meal you self decide how much you pay for the food. Nevertheless the surrounding is nice and food was very good. Especially the... More

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 high. However the quality... 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

We were a group of 15 and had pre-ordered two different menus. Most of us took wine menus to go with then food menus. So, after that we expexted to get swift service. 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

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.
