“the food is very good, but too expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2009

The local food is very well prepared and is delicious but for 2 adults you will leave the place without (at least) 100 e (two main dishes + soft drinks). Going there with child is not a very good idea, there is no place to entertain children.

“a MUST if visiting or anywhere near Jyväskylä”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2008

Warm summer day in Jyväskylä and with the intention to dine outside it was a bit of a surprise to arrive at Kissanviikset and realize that not only did this small restaurant not look like much from outside but it was also not possible to sit outside and eat. While we were glancing at the Finnish menu hanging outside the restaurant, there was a person who came up to us (potentially knowing that we didn´t understand any word of Finnish) and said `you should go in there, it is really good`. We took his advice and entered.

Two hours later we came out of Kissanviikset after one of the best dining experiences ever. Not only was the food FANTASTIC but the service was just perfect. Btw, one of us had salmon as the main course and the other had reindeer.

Kissanviikset is one of those restaurants that doesn´t advertise how great they are or show off in any way - they don´t need to....they let the food and the service speak for itself and Kissanviikset will get enough advertisement through word of mouth.....just like the person who recommended us to go inside.

Jyväskylä might be a bit out of the way for the average traveler but not only is the city nice and enjoyable, they also have a restaurant that raises the bar of how restaurant experiences can be; thanks Kissanviikset for a excellent dining experience and bon appetit to everyone else who go there.
