This is a fast food restaurant , basic service, food not expensive in Finland , but also not tasty at all, they take orders, give you the food and ask you to pay, nothing else. Go there if you don't mind service and food quality, but just something to eat .for some reason, taxi drivers like to recommend this restaurant,... More

Not bad not very good, average is the word for this restaurant. Have been here a couple of times and here are the good things: Wine is cheap (list is short and unimaginative), steaks are rather good and service is ok. With refreshing the decor and shortening the menu (to maintain the quality) they have great potential to rise in... More

If you are a friend of Spanish food, you shouldn't miss this restaurant. I have eaten many times here and have to say that I was never disappointed when leaving the place. Hot, spicy flavours makes you swallow! The busy staff does make you feel home and have allways "eyes on their backs", so you don't have to wait very... More

I don’t give much credit to the Lappeenranta taxi driver who recommended this restaurant for a lunch. The restaurant itself was exactly in the same condition as it has been for the forty last years (without any repairs) and the food was terrible. The only positive thing what can be said is that the waitresses tried to do their best... More

We did not feel welcome, there was dirty dishes around, some dirty chairs, and the menu lists were worn out. This made us uneasy, but luckily we did not walk out. The food was good and reasonably priced. We got service from two waitresses, who provided the service in basic Finnish style with the minimum of smiles and talking. But... More

A restaurant in a good location near Lappeenranta city center. I had a double XL burger or something like that. It was good in size, but average taste. Not a bad place, and it looked that Texas style steaks and ribs were really this place´s number one thing. You should try Ole.

I had the ribs as did three others of our company. The ribs are not actually named "ribs" on the menu, but what they are is excellent! Everyone liked the ribs. A few of us had steaks and they were also excellent. Only a drop of gravy which is obviously a very good thing. The burgers looked average and the... More

Had dinner here on my first trip to Lappeenranta, picked it because it was close to the hotel and some other places we were planning on heading to after dinner. It was a very nice surprise! The selection was wide and the food we had was very very good, my steak for instance was cooked perfectly. The dessert (cheesecake) I... More

Absolutely great food, a super wide selection of dishes, and good service :) Prices are very average for a Finnish restaurant.
