Traditional place to have vendace. Big portions. I have an impression that the quality varies from day to day. We have had good vendace here before and also now the portions was ok, but not exceptional. Also it took almost one hour to get the...portions, so there was most probably some challenge in the kitchen. We also wanted to order desert, but because the restaurant was closing one hour later, we were not allowed to order desert. You can get similar vendace elsewhere, so to keep up to the reputation the restaurant needs to improve.More
If you visit Kuopio and want to try some local delicacy, visit Sampo. They serve the traditional local fish called vendace in many flavours. Me and my wife had the most traditional of them all, vendace fried in butter with mashed potatoes. I also had...some rye bread seasoned with cowberry, which was also very good.More
The melancholic feeling of the restaurant is very pleasant. The muikku with smashed potatoes is great. It is a generous portion and a classic in kuopio. Don’t miss it.
The staff is kind.
The juke box in the room makes you travel backwards in time!
Found this fantastic family restaurant through Lonely Planet and loved it. A group of 8 of usvisited. The decor was old world but this only added to the experience. The original juke box allowed to play songs from another era. We had vendace ( a...small fresh water fish) and meatballs and both were delicious The place was full of locals which only added to the atmosphere. Highly recommend, If ever we return we shall revisit.More
