We enjoyed a nice variety of traditional home cooked cuisine last night in a comfortable, casual setting. We sat next to the window and ate by candlelight, the atmosphere seemed intimate yet lively. The buffet presentation had the delightful feel of being at a friend's house for dinner. There was a wide selection of cold appetizers from salads, fish and pates. The lingonberries and salmon soup were among my favorites. Dinner options ranged from a tasty reindeer to spiced lamb, baked fish rolls, roast pork, baked, scalloped and mashed potatoes among a few others. For dessert we chose a sea buckthorn parfait. We tried a bit of everything and thoroughly enjoyed our opportunity to sample a generous offering of classic Finnish comfort food at modest prices.
We immediately felt welcome by our courteous and friendly hosts, who were attentive and yet not intrusive. We were never lacking for anything at the table and a return cab was waiting for us outside when we left. They revealed themselves later to be the most exceptional people and earned our everlasting admiration when my husband discovered he had left his glasses there after we had returned to our hotel. He called to ask if he could pick them up the next day and they told us they could drop them off at our hotel on their way home that night since it was not too far away. We were very touched and impressed! When can you ever think of busy restaurant owners going out of their way like that?
Would heartily recommend this terrific family owned restaurant for their original concept, warm environment and outstanding hospitality.
