This is a nice restaurant in the center of Kuopio. We shared a nice appetizer and then had a nice perch as a main course. The fish was cooked perfectly and the taste was awsome! Good quality for a reasonable price.

We had a pretty large group with an advance reservation, based on good reviews on this forum. Everybody was happy with the quality of food, drinks and service. Both m starter and main course consisted on local fish. A bit pricy but delicious. The staff was happy to customize the menu. Service was surprisingly friendly and fast. Very good!

Good service, very pleasant cozy space and very good food. We had pike-perch and chicken for mains. The pike perch was fried, but still very delicate and creamy served with a Pernod sauce and vegetables, topped with fennel. Tomato salad as a starter was very generous, the smoked salmon less so.

Thanks to Tripadvisor we went to this lovely restaurant for a dinner. Food and people were great, good quality, lots of everything to choose from, local beer for the month etc. I had liver and nice wine that the waitress recommended. There's also a bar where you can chill enjoying the atmosphere.

A very cozy restaurant which in my opinion offers the best food in Kuopio. It's little bit difficult to find as the restaurant is located few hundred meters south from the city center in a yellow wooden building which doesn't look like restaurant from outside. However, the restaurant is nicely furnished and the staff is really friendly. Absolutely one of... More

Specially I do love warm summer days when it's possible to escape to Kummisetä's terrace. It has lovely, big apple tree (blossoming at May-June)+ sun shine during afternoon. The best combination is to have good company + lazy afternoon at sunny terrace with good food served with well chilled white wine. Can't wait next possibility to enjoy this!!!

Very close to the market place. Texmex and traditional food. Especially known for excellent meat dishes. The best liver stake in town. Romantic atmosphere in an old wooden house. Friendly service With broken English

And it is good. Serves basic alcohol beverages inside and out. Also food available. Could be quite crowded in the weekends.
