Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The restaurant is cozy and fairly small in size. The service is first class and personnel are friendly. The food is so good, that this place deserves Michelin agents to pay a visit! If you happen to be within 100km range, I would highly recommend...to try their offering. Once again, the taste is simply fantastic!More

The restaurant interior was very nice and the staff was friendly and welcoming. They had tasting menu for kids which was fully blown nice flavors and beautiful dishes. Never seen such a commitment to children portions anywhere before. We had tuna and chicken which were...both very good as well. Almost a 5/5 and affordable compared to many same quality places. Will definitely visit this place again if in Mikkeli.More

Excellent food and excellent service! So happy. Definitely a restaurant we would love to visit again. Everything was so, so tasty and a complete symphony of flavours. The wine suggestions were definitely complimentary to the food we had. Strongly recommend!

Been here for years and this time it was at least as good as before. Cozy place with nice staff. And the food at lunch was good, especially the bbq pork I took - awesome portion!

Food was great, staff very friendly and they were able to recommed perfect wine for the food. The athmosphere is also nice but not too fancy. They are changing their menu quite often so if there´s something you absolutely want to taste again, make sure...they´re still serving it :)More

We recently ate at Bistro Holvi and we were all thoroughly impressed. Just a stone’s throw from the Mikkeli Market square where there were plenty of restaurants to choose from, we were glad we decided to walk a bit further and find this gem of...a place. We were a larger group (2 families) and everybody, including the children, were raving about the food. Some of us had the fantastic prix fix which also came with a vegetarian or a vegan option. All the roasted vegetables were grilled and seasoned to perfection (all produce come from local farmers). The children’s meals were a feast for the eyes and frankly we’ve never seen a prettier plate before! It was a stark contrast of the usual servings of fried nuggets and fries. For the carnivores out there, the 20 hour braised beef is must try. It will literally melt in your mouth. The french fries were a delicious add on to the meals as was the green side salad with bits of fennel and peas in the mix. The service was prompt and friendly and we would give this place a 10 star review if we could! We will definitely come back next time we are in Mikkeli. This was our culinary highlight of the Summer, if not the whole year’s!More

Best fish (kuhaa kahdella tapaa) I've had in long time. My girlfriend enjoyed her 20 hrs cooked beef too. Only the fries served as side were bit too salty for my taste. Excellent value for dinner!

The BEST value for a dinner for a long time. My choice was two starters, 20h beef and a dessert. The beef was truly a hero dish, as some may say here in local language, perkeleen hyvää! Even more important than this was that my...wife, being vegetarian, was very pleased with her veg dishes. Three starters, two mains, two desserts, two glasses of Champagne and a glass of red 120€. Quality+taste+plating+ very nice timely service vs price = bargain! Will visit again!More

Three course lunch served to table. Really fresh ingredients and tasteful food. The portions were good sized, no fear that you have to leave feeling still hungry. Atmosphere was pleasant and calm in brick vault style small hall. In street level though with small covered...terrace. We can recommend and will surely come back.More

I visited this place a few times in summer but always fully booked (so a good sign). Now did booking early and enjoyed tasty dinner. The best restaurant in the town, friendly service and tasty food.

Located in the theatre, the place is cozy and welcoming. Pretty plates and sizable portions: we took the side dishes, which were well made and very enjoyable, but the main dishes would have been sufficient. All was well executed, on site, and very tasty. We...wish we would be still hungry to sample the desserts. Perhaps next time.More
