Used trip advisor to find my best option near where i was at the time and this very local gem came up. Blackboard menu in finnish (but the staff speak english as well) refreshed me enough to continue sightseeing in zero degrees.

We had the blinis for starters and cod fish ( fresh fish for today) for main course. The food was absolutely great. Don´t remember when I had such fresh and delicious cod. Cozy and relaxed ambience. This was a perfect dinner experience.
