The main course, grilled filled of roe deer, was also amazing - the meat was unbelievably tender. The wine that was recommended to us was not... More

Had a nice dinner with friends. Service was good, and food above average. A little bit pricey, but it always is near Christmas. I've told their lunch is good.

They have really tasty and original menu. I recommend smoked raindeer soup. Their stakes are well prepared, good voice of wine available. Place is renovated a while ago with nice taste.

I have nothing good to say about this place. The interior is very dated, service was totally indifferent, and the food had almost no taste at all.

Upgraded but still traditional restaurant with a pleasent twist, clean, modern cellar style with good food. Well done menu with classical and balanced dishes. Also winelist is well designed and includes quality wines globally.

I was eating here with my man last Saturday. Food was delicious and staff was friendly, its expensive place, i paid for my main course dish around 30 euros. I think there is nothing special in this place, its very average restaurant.

Food is good, no big problems, but it's also boring like 20 years ago. Interior is tired. Too expensive.

Tasty 'pikkujoulu' dinner in 'cellar restaurant Brahe'. In Finland we celebrate Christmas well before Christmas and call it 'pikkujoulu' meaning little Christmas/pre Christmas party/dinner. Restaurant located in the center of the city and it's quite nicely decorated, clean, friendly place. I have never cared for exquisite service, so this wasn't never the main thing for me. I did not expected... More
