We selected "summer menu" and had the most wonderful dinner starting with a modern and creative version of Finnish "summer soup". Both fried white fish with vegetables and sauce made of dill and lemon, sand chicken with raisin sauce were excellent. Desert with strawberry parfait and licorice dressing was also very tasty and beautifully set, just like the soup. It... More

It used to be the best restaurant in Lappeenranta. Now it is only one of the best. It is manly due to visible lack of innovativeness both in terms of menu as well as service and arrangement of the venue. The food is good but now not really remarkable.

Wolkoff has very nice interior and a cosy courtyard. Its relatively high rates by the tripadvisor are well-deserved. We had a dinner the other day this week. Food was excellent, tasty, with beautiful set-up, including some innovative surprises, and it was served with friendly and professional manner. Must visit for visitors to South Karelia.

Lunchbreak in the old fashioned family owned restaurant Wolkoff is recommended while the salad buffet is fresh and really good. Taste the second course soup, it is a typical finnish-russian experience. Good. The third course is a plate service with a smaller but wau, wau main course. Don´t forget to taste also the bred! Service is polite and quick. But...... More

I had a very good dish of lamb here (but pay attention, if you don't like cinnamon skip it, it might be a bad surprise!). Decent offer of wines and surprisingly good espresso. Despite relatively aligned to prices in Finland, I found it a bit overpriced though. Have a visit in the museum next door (where prices are even higher,... More

If you want to have good food in a nice place Wolkoff is your choice in Lappeenranta. Food is very good and people friendly. Try also the garden to enjoy lunch or glass of wine from wine cellar.

We had a perfect dinner at Wolkoff Thursday 21.07.16. 3-course meal with wine packet. The food was served in a delicate way and it tasted very good. The wines that the staff had picked for the different dishes suited perfect. We will defiantly be back next year.

We had a very good meal here. The restaurant has a very welcoming feel, service is friendly and the deco very appropriate for the historic building. We each had a main course of fish, beautifully cooked and presented. My desert of raspberry sorbet with traditional Finnish talkunna flour and curdled milk was exceptional. The wine list had a good selection.... More

I highly recommend the wine bar of the restaurant as for aperitifs. Fresh Nordic Cuisine and good selection of wines. Friendly service. What else would you need 🙂🍾
