We looked in for drinks on the way back to our hotel and were impressed with the ambience. What a nice place this would have been for dinner! Can’t say anything avout the food, but service was very nice and the restaurant is nice., so...it seems promising. If we ever come back to Iisalmi, we will definitely eat here.More

We ordered garlic bread for starters, and then salmon with white wine risotto and cheese burger with bacon. I'm telling you guys that this was amazing. Still my tongue would want to go back and lick the plate. It even looked so good I had...to take a picture. Definitely I recommend this place. All the food we saw going to the nearby tables looked so delicious. Have to visit again!!!More

Good food, good wine, good service, nice atmosphere. Reindeer steak was great, and my colleagues seemed to like their food as well.

This place is quite crowded during weekends, so you need to make a reservation. Menu is specialized for meat lovers, but there is salads, fish and vege food also.

During one of the hottest days in July we went to eat lunch on the nice terrace of the Chaplin. The buffet had a wide selection of appetizers and home baked bread. Hot selection included meat and vegetarian dishes. The lunch was completed by a...dessert and coffee/tea. Price was excellent, only €9.90 per person.More

Restaurant Chaplin is located in the centre of a small town Iisalmi. The menu consists above all of steaks. Restaurant serves a nice selection of not only steaks but also diverging sauces and potatoes and vegetables. Food is very tasty and not normal chain food...that you can find for example in Rosso's. A bottle of wine is in reasonable price level. I recommend this Place if you want to enjoy a nice but relaxed dinner.More
