We wanted to go out together with my husband to have dinner together. He did order a burger which he was able to have without gluten. This was already good thing. I felt a bit sorry for him, because he didn't enjoy this burger very much - basic and bulk were his words for it. I was more happy with... More

Restaurant and bar in a lovely old wooden building by the waterfront. Went there on a breezy summer evening and it was nice to sit outside on the terrace and enjoy the view. The buffé that I opted for comprised local/Finnish delicacies like a hearty reindeer soup with added potatoes, smoked salmon/trout, and the local speciality "muikkukukko", with the locally... More

Visited the restaurant in the beginning of the season with a group of about 25 people for dinner. The location is fabulous in the harbour. We stayed at the terrace. We were promptly and friendly greeted. The personnel took our drink orders first, immediately followed by the orders for the meal. The menu looked ok with local specialities, although was... More

This bar hosts annual wine festival in July. Come here then. This is closed in wintertime and opens for summers. Usually has lot's of crowd as this is at harbour area. Nothing fancy but get's work done.

Nice restaurant with fabulous location and very good food, but... don't bother to go if you have to stay inside the restaurant. It is dark and not nice at all. I highly recommend during nice summer day when terrace is open. Try salmon, it was superb.

Nothing major can go wrong if you come here to eat. The food is good and you sit nicely either on the terrace or inside a old wooden harbor house with some flair. The service is ok as is value for money compared to other places is Finland. Don't expect this to be a Michelin Star place! We had burgers... More
