If you don't like the food here, there is something wrong with you. Always fresh salads and tasty soups, and the mains makes you wanna move in.

The best homemade Finnish style lunch in town!! They use only good ingredients, which is quite rare in this price range. Service is sometimes a bit cold, and interior is a slightly rustic, but these things are part of the x-factor of this restaurant. Don´t...More
