First visit though had visited the small station before without noticing any worthy restaurant there. Great food but comes with a price during their German weeks. Asked to change the reserved table which was just by the child door to the platform. Had to turn...my dirty beer glass. Themed interior not very attractive and missing a front door to separate it from the waiting lounge with drunken passengers. Good better than expected but interior less than what a high class restaurant should look. Still an eatery for busy passengersMore

This time we quickly ate only coffee and stuffed bagels. Bagel was a little old. Customer service continues to be polite and good. The location of the restaurant is good next to the travel center.

The restaurant at the Old Railway Station offers good home-cooked food - Christmas is also a Christmas lunch. Because of the popularity, it is a little busy. Close to an hour or two parking spaces with a parking disc.

I was told in before hand that this railway station restaurant Vaiha is good. It is always pleasent when a restaurant surpasses your expectations. Vaiha did just that. The Lunch buffet consisted of pike-perch fish seljanka, pork in beautiful sauce with mashed potatoes, very tasty...salad with very fresh tomatos and juicy root vegetables slowly cooked in owen. Everything is made of local area raw materials. And it all tasted so good. The place is tidy and service is good+. Old wooden railwaybuilding offers nice casual atmosphere. Price for lunch buffet was 10€. Recommendable.More
