went to visit the gardens which was really overrated. The restaurants were really expensive and the stores designed to clean out the russian tourist groups. Will not visit again

We were hungry but 27 Euros for a buffet lunch was just beyond our budget. We stopped instead at the bakery where we got some great, gluten free meringues for a very good price.

It is a very attractive area, but the complex seems to be all about shopping. We did look into a place or two but found prices high and merchandise not appealing to us.

This restaurant has been famous for good food in great place. Quality and taste of food is below average now. Fame is still going on, but food is too expensive. Building is worth of seeing, but table for lunch is poor. Service is still nice and friendly.

Kenkävero is lovely situated by the lake and easily achievable from the main road. It would be a nice place to enjoy a break. But almost every time disappointing! This time they were not able to make us cappucino. The previous time they were full with a group and turned individual visitors away. Or their pastry had sold out and nothing left.

There are many small shops and boutiques in Kenkävero. From these shops you may found very beatiful Finnish crafts - though the pieces are quite expensive.

When in Mikkeli the Kenkävero seems to be a must-see attraction. It is also located near lake so the scenery is lovely at the sommer time.
