Genuine

Half of the restaurant is more like pub and other half is restaurant. This might bring noise issues sometimes if you're looking for peaceful dinner. Interior is genuine Finnish ski centre design from the past decades 70's, 80's, 90's. I like this oldies goldies atmosphere. Food is very good and... read more

Had dinner in here and the food was great. Unfortunately the service was not even average. There was too little staff for the busy weekend, and even though we didn't have to wait long for the food the waitress was rude and didn't concentrate on the customers. This is a shame, since it is a cosy restaurant with good food.

The place is more a pub than a restaurant. Our Group orderd different portions, and all were delicious. Good service.

Good: food was OK, mushroom soup for a starter even excellent. Not so good: interior is somewhat outdated. Service was...well, not rude but "cold", maybe the waitress was not having her best day...

Myself and my girlfriend visited this place during our stay at Kakslauttanen. The food is not so great at the West Village, so we decided to head into town for lunch and found this fantastic little pub. Walking in, we were a little apprehensive, as the decor and the background music were straight from the 80's! (Insert Days of our... More

Ok- I have had some very average Finnish food while in Finland but this was great! The mushroom soup was so good we came back again just for it! I had a salmon and caesar salad and the salmon was so fresh and serving was huge. The setting is very traditional and dark and you would be fooled to think... More

Most reviews of Teerenpesa have hitherto been from restaurant diners.....but we found the bar meals to be pretty good too and perfect for a filling lunch. Spicy (chicken) wings were true to their name and the choice of burgers was between a generous cheeseburger and an even more generous houseburger with chorizo sausage included. Can't vouch for the quality of... More
