Dinner at Backpocket was one of the best we ever experienced on any continent. This place is hidden in the Finnish archipelago, accessible by boat or by car (two ferries). A six course surprise menu paired with wonderful wines, starting with exceptional blanc de blanc champagne. Options for kids as well. This place really deserves a Michelin star, although perhsps a bit difficult to find, many foreign tourists, though.
The location of the hotel is the best. It was wonderful to wake up in the middle of the countryside on a summer morning. Rooms are brightly decorated and have a very good overall look. The building is well kept and sympathetic. Breakfast is served directly at the table and consists of fresh ingredients. Customer service is staffed by young adults and the service is very friendly and relaxed. The hotel’s private beach is definitely the highlight of the place. On the pier next to the cliffs you can relax in complete silence surrounded by nature. Only but significant flaws in the hotel are the room equipment. Mini fridge in our room was broken and we did get it intact as long as we carried it downstairs to our room. Ventilation was non-existent which made our room awkwardly hot at the end of the day and in addition the bed was the loudest where we had ever slept. Metal frame kept making loud noise with even the slightest movement so we hardly got to sleep in bed. This should definitely be fixed by the hotel. Our overall rating of the hotel is still fairly positive.…
Five star restaurant Awesome place! A lovely little, cosy hotel with an excellent restaurant. You can not get better food in a big city Michelin star restaurant. The food is simply amazingly high class and tasteful. The chef expresses himself through this food like art. We ate the tasting menu and I can recommend it with all my heart. Enjoyable atmosphere, professional service. We stayed in the familyroom and it was clean and functional. A bit hot at least in winter but beds were comfortable. Large internet-tv. Excellent breakfast. I have never eaten so good porriadge with blueberries. My tip is to test this restaurant during winter, off-season. It is just as good quality and it is easier to get table. In the summer you are lucky to get a reservation.
We did have lunch and 6 courses dinner. Both were super good, actually the best food I have had. Also the breakfast was so good! The restaurant is worth of visit any time. Also the winter time is magical. The host was very friendly and we felt welcome there.
So ni Nice and calm hotel to enjoy Finnish arcipelago. We were by a small group one weekend having great time. The resraurant was exceptional good and operated by the owner . This is a place to visit again .
