if you dont expect much then you will not be disappointed. Nice building, good concept, cheap food. In principal the menu is fine, not too complex, but they dont quite know how to do those meals. So at best you get some average stuff. Service was great.

Walked in at 8pm on a Friday. A group of staff were having some food at a table near the entrance. Clearly annoyed we interrupted their meal, one came over and instructed they were full. After pointing out the restaurant was clearly half full, we were begrudgingly brought to a table. How can this even happen! Where is the management!... More

Great steak and love the atmosphere. We were able to sit in the bank vault room as we had a larger party and this was so much fun. The service is great and the food as well. Everyone I have dined here with loves the fish. Will definitely come back!

We celebrated our anniversary with my girlfriend here. This restaurant is the best place so far I've visited in here. Main course costs about 24-30 €, starters about 8-12 € and desserts about 9 €.

We had a lovely dinner here and really enjoyed everything. It's a Italian crossover restaurant with nice interior. The service was very welcoming and friendly. We took gambas pil pil for a starter, good but it could be more spicy as it should be. Then we had fish, pike perch and that was so good. Good selection of wines. A... More

Had starters of gambas al pil pil and asparagus salad. Prawns were nice, albeit perhaps too much swimming in oil. Mains were pike perch - delicious, succulent and creamy and pasta alla Norma - very pleasant, if nothing special.

If you stay at the local hotel and buy a s card online for 25 euro, you can eat a meal for free - value of 12 euro Monday to Friday, just have to buy your drink. That with salad bar, for that price the meals are very good. Staff are excellent.

I simply love this place, the quality is guaranteed and it's time just to enjoy! Isä Camillo Restaurant is located at the very center of the Kuopio, next to a lovely park, Snellmanin puist. The building itself was earlier a bank and this history gives a certain, classified honor to the place. One of the top places in Kuopio!

Extremely friendly service. Lunch included a nice salad buffet and selection of main courses. Understood that all mains were served on the plate a la carte. Turkey fillet was nicely cooked and the sides were good.

I tried the beet root falafel with Quinoa salad. It was okay. Not that good and not a satisfying portion for almost 17€. That's just too expensive for what I got. It was a bit bland and could have used more spices and a lot more salt. All together I could make the same thing at home for half of... More
