Beautiful location and very cozy. The food was beautifully presented but was lacking in flavor and depth. Unfortunately very ordinary Service was very slow but perhaps they where short staffed.

..with good food. Escargots were tasty, really nicely served. Not too much other ingredients so they played the main role. Lamb was good, medium as was ordered, parsnip pure was really tasty. Also vendace, eaten by companion,was good. Deserts, specially sorbet were also delightful.

Delicious food near the sand castle area, just a short walk from the harbour / city center and next to the fortress area (but a steep way downhill). A nice summer terrace. They had a child chair for our youngest, and we ordered one meal...More

There has been a shortage of good, stable restaurants in Lappeenranta. Snails were good, marble beef was awesome and restored my faith in eating meat. Recommended wine was really good. I and the rest of the crew enjoyed. Staff was extremely nice and told really...More

The service was excellent. The food was good, at least the escargot and the others at our table enjoyed theirs. My white fish was dry though, and rather tasteless. But with good company, it didn't make much difference.

We were 9 and had pre ordered our meals. Service was good and food and drinks too. Chicken, salmon... all tasted good, even though the presentation was rather every day style. But, I will certainly return.

The building is lovely, near the city harbor. I went there for a lunch on a weekday, 12.5e for the warm lunch with soup, salad, dessert, and tea/coffee - sounds good right? I chose lamb meatloaf with roast potatoes for my mains (the other choice...More
