“Mother´s Day lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

We visited Kyla on Mother´s Day, which is one of the most popular days for restaurant lunches. On that day the restaurant was fully booked (twice) and also they had a special menu. The menu contained some dishes which belong to their "normal" menu, but also some, which were produced for the day, probably to stay within capacity of the kitchen and to avoid very long preparation times.

As a starter we favored asparagus with hollandaise-sauce. It was quite good, but perhaps something extra could have been added...

As main dishes we had roasted whitefish and beef with garlic. Both dishes included root vegetable rosti and different potatoes. The whitefish also had a very tasty nettle hash. The courses were tasty and the beef was exactly medium, as was asked.

As a dessert we had blueberry Creme brulee. To-day you find that creme brulee in many variations, but blueberry version was something new (at least for us). The brulee was tasty.

The wine list was large enough at least for us. The waitress was not very well aware about the wines to recommend matching ones, but together we did come to satisfying wines.

As I mentioned, the place was full but the service ran without delays. As a whole, the restaurant gave a very good impression of their willingness and efforts to serve (much) above average food for acceptable prices, on this busy day.

“Must try”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

In the same day both the lunch and the dinner here. In the lunch we ordered a traditional finnish home food, "Carelian stew", which was almost as we were used to get by grandmothers,
excellent. For the dinner raw salted reindeer slices were very tasty for the starter as well our main dishes, wild big and the stuffed aubergine both were . In one word about this place: recommended.
However, one hint to the restaurant (or actually two): 1) take the advantage to be The Restaurant, which changes the pricing of the wines to the moderate level, 2) not only offer excellent food but also exceed the customer expectation, one way or another. Good luck to you, we will certainly come back.

“First visit, but not last one”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

Visited couple of weeks ago a new dining restaurant in Espoo, Garden City Tapiola, which was opened just 1,5 week ago.
Surprising good dinner we had. Portions are quite small, so appetizers are needed if you are hungry. Menu is quite small, wine list is medium. They told that menu will be changed according to season at least each couple of month. Price for appetizers 8-10 e, mains 16-26 e, wines are as usually in Finland overpriced (bottle) starting from 41 e, by glasses 7,20 e. Worth to try.
