Visited there today for a lunch. Friendly place, points for that. Starter salada bar was also good, actually tuna pasta salad was really good, but sadly best part of the lunch. Main lunch came after fairly long wait. When it arrived, it looked like small, something were missing from plate. I ordered beef filet, tomatoe salsa and cheese pure and... More

This sort of sums up the phrase in Finland...Aika Hyvä which means "quite good"...nothing special but nice enough to warrant a visit. Food is more or less traditional fair and good quality.

What a dinner. Straight at the welcome we met the cheerful smiles and sunny faces. Food was prepared in a semi-open kitchen and was truly delicious and portions were looking tempting. Menu is diverse and of local cuisine with local products, too. Also homemade specialities. Atmosphere and interior is timeless and classy, comfortable seating.

The reason for rating this place poor, is mainly due to not being able to say what this place wants to be. With decor, pricing and "message" it sends out, one could expect fine dining. However when you get the plate in front of you, I was disappointed now three times (three new menus tried, when ever menu was renewed).... More

We visited Taivaanranta with some customers and the food was very good ! We took Chicken, Hirvi-burger, liver and Whiskey-stake portions with beer from local brewery (our guests loved it) and wine which was recommended by glass with the chicken by a very friendly waitress. Everything was nice, the atmosphere, service etc. Only surprise came , when we saw the... More

Not over serviced or over priced, but good casual to semi-fine dining. Serves also tasteful lunches. Good use of local ingredients and seasonal dishes as well as products from the own brewery & distillery. Not so good selection for the vegetarians, but there is always e.g. different tasty fish dishes

We ate in many restaurants during our week in Lahti, this was by far the best. Recommended by friends who live in the area, we enjoyed two delightful dinners here. The food was terrific both times and the atmosphere was elegant while still being comfortable, friendly and cosy. Service was friendly, attentive and helpful, We will definitely be back!

We had specific celebration for 14 person, and service was extremely well organized. The dinner was very good although the dishes were quite small. The best Creme Brulee so far. The restaurant itself was very comfortable, and staff so friendly and professional. This was my first visit in Taivaanranta but not the last one, Very good!

Cosy and fine restaurant with beautiful interior and very friendly service. You can even order half portions if you are not starving but because this restaurant is almost fine-dining, the dishes are not very big. Try Chef's menu, it has changes every week but has usually seasonal and local ingredients.
