“Fantastic food, great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

We came to Tertin Kartano last summer when visiting Mikkeli area. Tertin Karano is a beautiful well preserved old manor house with nice garden and a small pretty lake. It has great restaurant, few rooms you can stay in and small shop where you can buy their own products like their blend of coffee and tea and marmalades, honey etc.

I warmly recommend eating in their restaurant. We had their lunch buffet which was amazing. Food was absolutely delicious. They use local ingredients and cook traditional dishes but with a twist. The restaurant is nicely decorated and you can see how much attention is put to details. So, definitely worth a visit even a bit further away as well.

“Excellent lunch in old cowhouse”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2012

We visited Tertin Kartano at lunch time. Excellent food was served in old cowhouse renovated to a restaurant. Lovely salads with herbs for their own garden, best ever smoked whitebait, fresh potatoes from their fields, Worsmack and braised pork with lots of thyme in cream. For the dessert they served lovely cake baked with flowers and their special blend coffee. What a relaxing stop on way home. We´ll come again!

“Lovely traditional manor house, relaxing and surprising”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2011

An old Finnish Manor house, renovated to top standards while keeping the original features and decorations. The restaurant only has limited choice of dishes, given it's not an urban restaurant, but the dishes are typically Finnish, sourced locally, and delicious! This quality comes at a high price, but the high cooking standard together with the charming atmosphere and impeccable service makes it certainly worthwhile. There is also a café, with small dishes, cakes, etc. for anything from breakfast until late afternoon. Furthermore, there is a small number of cosy guestrooms. Perfect place for people travelling though the area (on the way to their summer cabins), or also for celebrations among family and friends. A surprising discovery, and well worth a little detour or excursion. (Luckily, it's directly on the way to my summercabin, so I shall become a regular!).
