Fransmanni is a chain you can find in many cities in Finland. If you'd like some classy French cuisine, in a calm ambiance this one's for you. We (3) had a Bouillabaise(!), grilled salmon, chicken casserole(!), onion soup and chanterelle soup. All was very tasty....More

I have never seen such a lousy service. It took over half an hour before we had the drinks. And about one and half hour before we got the food. And the food beverage after we had eaten. Unforgettable. Never again.
