It took very long time to prepare our muikkus, they were burned (smelled and tasted burned), and maybe fried twice because they were so dry that they were difficult to cut with a table knife. Definitely not worth 18 euros. We gave feedback and got...some discount, but we ate only because we were so hungry. Very sad that good raw material and easy dish were such disappointment.More

Horrible service, three waitresses standing and doing nothing, one serving drinks for a long line. Only in Finland!!!

Late lunch with friends on a late Sunday afternoon outside. We started with drinks but after seeing the dishes served we decided to have food aswell. We ordered the house burgers. Service was good ans we waited only 20min. But we got to enjoy the...music in the park nearby. Definitely a place to visit with friends if you are not in a hurryMore

Such a beautiful location! Unfortunately, very poor customer service. Tables were full of dirty glasses and old food for hours. Seagulls were fighting over them and customers had to chaise them away. The waitresses didn’t do anything. Food was good but overpriced and took longer...than we were told. When we asked about it we received a very nasty response.More

Nice place close to harbour, prices ok. Portions quite small, hamburger and fish soup to be recommended. Good and fast service.

The fishboat is great. Every summer I have to eat fishmeal from the boat. You find all kinds of fish, specially those popular in Savo.

This place boasts with its Fish boat buffet, which is tasty but nothing extraordinary. Atmosphere is a bit dull and there is a lack of "old feeling" even though the place calls itself The Old Harbour. Main courses are tasty and portions are big.

We wanted to go out together with my husband to have dinner together. He did order a burger which he was able to have without gluten. This was already good thing. I felt a bit sorry for him, because he didn't enjoy this burger very...much - basic and bulk were his words for it. I was more happy with so called fish boat - more or less a fish buffet with fresh salads and few good sauces. All the fish I tasted was also very good and fresh, very enjoyable indeed.More
