We knew the restaurant already. Fast service and king staff in a cosy atmosphere and delicious food.

I had a two fold experience in Boka, which makes it difficult to give a single rating. Food: - Lamb was very tasty and tender, and the portion was very generous. 4/5 - Cheese stuffed patty was neither juicy nor tasty, it also had lots...of "meat-like" ingredients indicating low quality minced meat. 1,5/5 - Baklava was maybe the best in Finland, not too sweet but still full of flavour. 4/5 Service: The owner is a gem. Service from him was friendly, professional, genuine and fast. 5/5 Another waiter was completely lost. They didn't seem to know what food the restaurant offers, didn't seem to understand the questions and tried to bluff their way out of the situation and failing horribly. 1/5 Would I go again? Absolutely!More

Excellent food accompanied by wonderful service. The atmosphere was warm and our group felt welcome from the very moment we stepped in.

I was here for lunch, which was balkan sausages. The taste was still in my mouth after four hours. The restaurant is quite small, but there is a kind of lounge in the other room.

Slowly cooked lamb was just great. Meat was tender and whole portion was tasty and there was enough to eat.

Ate here with a big group of friends and family. Weekday evening so fairly quiet. We were looked after very well, nothing was too much trouble. The menus, whilst not large offer a good choice and between us we ate most things from the menu....Food all beautifully presented and generously portioned. Good, fresh, honest flavours, rustic presentation but all delicious. Would highly recommend Boka.More

We ate lunch in the restaurant Boka in Kuopio - the restaurant is situated near the lake Kallavesi - the wiew was beautiful. I ate chicken, others ate plate of meat, lamb and moussaka. We all liked very much, also our teenages. The staff was...kind. I recommend!More

Visiting twice with a family. We had moussaka, burger and meatplate (for two). The food was tasteful and they also looked good. Meatplate contains "everything" and it is superior. Red wine from Makedonia was tasty. - Location of the restaurant, just in the harbour close...to the water, is amazing especially in the terrace.More
