Had hamburgers because they were recommended by our friends. Well, no disappointments there. Great taste. Could not eat dessert anymore. Have tocome back for that another tie´me. Only short walk to hotel Lietsu.

The food is refreshingly tasty with nice and slightly surprising flavors. The view over the Ilosaari Island and the river is also nice.

We went for a lunch buffet on a work day. It was busy, but there was plenty of tables. Friendly staff. Views are stunning to the river as Kerubi is situated on an island in the middle of the Pielisjoki. Kerubi had good location between...downtown and train station. There is a large patio for a better weather. A lot of parking space. Food was delicious! Plenty of different salads, two mains, soup, everything was good! They make everything, including bread in house. This time dessert was cake. Lucky me! This place also has a rock club downstairs and frequently live music. Also meeting rooms for large gatherings.More

Restaurant with delicious meals with street food touch/twist. Good burgers, excellent sweet potato fries, very good artisan ice cream. The salads are versatile and fresh, salmon and chicken dishes average. Been here now two times and me or my companions have now tried almost every...dish on the menu, no total disappointments but nothing heavenly either - except the unbelievable sweet potato fries and lovely artesan ice cream bowls!More

It was obviously a bad day for the Kerubi staff. There was a constant hassle with the orders and many portions were sent back to the kitchen. Also the waiting times were quite long. We ordered three meals: one of them was the most popular...burger in this place called Tykki(Cannon) burger, it was tasty, no problems. Also the veggie(oumph) version seemed to be ok. With the chicken burger we faced some problems: there was lots of sauce, way too much and the chicken itself tasted peculiar. We told the waitress about the issue; she was very sorry and gave us a 20% discount for the price of the portion. Well, maybe some coffee/dessert on the house would have also been nice. A very mediocre experience this time; what a pity. Hopefully it was only a unfortunate exception.More

Probably the best burgers in Joensuu. Burger was nice surprise in very good way. Good majo & sweet potato fries as well. Dessert maybe not on a same level. Would recommend trying those burgers.

Kerubi offers quite decent burgers and lunch table is open during weekdays. Have tried both and experiences have been quite ok. Not bad but not also great.

I was happy to return here. A really well operated live entertainment center of Joensuu. The live music supply seems at least good. If not excellent. There is very good food available too. Lunch is fabulous. And the surroundings and the view are just beautiful....If I could change something in here, it would be the load in/out route. A roomy lift would be cool. And a little more headroom on stage to get the best out of the lights.More

Definitely the best burgers in Joensuu. The menu here offers great variety of foods and the staff was super friendly!

Very good food, the new seasonal tasting menu with moose and steak was excellent. The atmosphere is pretty rough though, but works for a rock club. Good service.
