I came here yesterday (Saturday) night for a meal on my first night in Kotka. I'd wanted to come as it's a venerable old institution here and I had missed out on it 2 years ago when I was with a friend as it was closed during the midsummer holidays. It's a lovely old building, looking very traditional and some... More

Situated opposite the Sokos hotel entrance this restaurant offers Tex-Mex type food at reasonable prices. Small free salad bar and free coffee/cookies. Portions sizes are large. Very friendly service and relaxed athmosphere.

Good menu with a flavouring of Finnish dishes. The salad bar is well...Finnish. Staff are always helpful and will fit you in even without a reservation. The décor is rustic. The coffee... More

Have visited this restaurant on several occasions and can wholeheartedly recommend it. The menus are now in English and Finnish the choice is excellent from the pizzas, pasta and soups to the reindeer and horse meat. If you have room after your main and included salad bar starter the desserts are superb.

There is really nothing very good here. Food poor and tasteless, hamburger worst I've ever had, bun unedible & bricklike, sauce tasteless, cheese a lump. I lived close to it so I tried it 2-3 times too, never much other positive that a full stomach. Unfortunately not much to choose from for a foodie in Kotka.

It is seconds to walk from the Sokos to the Ravintola. The air carries a garlic odor that draws one in. (If you love garlic) The reindeer pasta is very good along with many other selections on the menu. ANd more then enough to eat. The service is very good and the servers are most attentive. The price is mid... More
