We wandered in for dinner without a reservation, and we did not know before we ate that this is one of the top 100 restaurants in Finland. Our "summer menu" plates were delicious, creative and pretty. The homemade bread had great texture and flavor. And since I cannot eat strawberries, it was no problem to substitute another dessert for the... More

We enjoyed Wolkoff's summer menu and recommended wine package. Summer menu could have been a bit more creative - Wolkoff's version of summer soup was kind of OK, but main course left a bit of room for improvement.

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.
