“Food is fine,.location as well”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

This restaurant has been one of the list of only few affordable ones in Kotka since how many years. Reasonably priced,.various kind of foods on the menu and excellent location. Restaurant itself needs a renovation and updated inside deco.

“Good Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2014

Excellent food quality and quantity. Staff speak limited English as this is away from tourist areas, but the menu is available in English. Good service and cheery staff. Freshly cooked food.

“Nice tavern”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

Food tastes good, portions are nice sized and the pricing is really reasonable. Atmosphere is more like tavern than restaurant but if You put all the pieces together Canttiini is one of the best restaurants in Kotka.

“Food for the people”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 12, 2012

Don't expect to get a fine dining experience here. I find the interior cozy if lacking style. But it has character and the food doesn't reflect the outside which seems to be falling apart.

The food is really tasty here, which owes a lot to the generous amounts of cream in the sauces. I've been there twice had a Gorgonzola filled pork steak and pork rolls filled with cheese and bull topped off with a creamy mushroom sauce. Would recommend the deliciously creamy steak but not the pork rolls which was a really small portion. The taste palette isn't really sophisticated but it caters very well to the common folk. I always found the service functional but lacking in smiles.

If you're looking for a good hearty meal, it's definitely the place to go in Kotka.
