Great central location and nice terrace too. It used to be Fransmanni, but new name is Frans & Cherie. Concept is still the same, so it's a chain restaurant serving French Cuisine. Service was friendly and fast. Menu was "safe", so food was not that innovative, but tasted good.

Now known as Frans&Cherie but not much has changed besides the decor. We had a nice dinner here. Appetizers were good especially the Roquefort snails! Tested the "mussel friday" and was pleasently surprises. Tasty mussels and plenty of them! Although some of them had a bit of sand... the desserts were the only letdown, pastry on tartlets was hard as... More

We ordered main courses and desserts, both of which were lovely. The Arctic char with lentils was excellent. All round lovely meal with good service. The restaurant is not particularly formal, and...

Food itself was certainly above average, but the place is largish and not too coze. But what would you expect from a big hotel-restaurant. We had mutton and liver portions, both were good, but not exquisite.

We stayed 3 nights in Original Sokos Hotel Vaakuna which runs the Fransmanni Testaurant as well. The atmosphere in the restaurant looks quite nice. I can say that the breakfast is quite satisfactory but can not say the same thing for the evenings. As we were already staying in the hotel we decided to have the dinner in Fransmanni. First...

Went for a dinner with high expectations.The service was friendly and fast eventho the restaurant was full.The menu was interesting and sounded good but unfortunately the food didnt live up to it.It was average and the portions are not big.Considering the price the food was definately a disappointment.

We had reindeer sautee and it was delicious. Very smart staff. The portions are just perfect. However, the very hungry one will need a desert ;)
