Good food, friendly service, terrible planning - the party in- and outdoor at the same time led to us waiting for the main course for more than 1 hour... which is not acceptable. The consecutive noise was barely ok, but conversation only possible by shouting....More

Easily the best steak I’ve had anywhere in Finland. Starter and dessert were also delicious. Expensive but well worth it.

Located in city center with easy access. Quite odd customer service. Slow, forgetting orders every once in a while and didnt quite make you feel wellcome. Staff seem to enjoy their own company more than customers. Food was okay, some of it very good. Quite...More
