Fabulous location with stunning views over the lake. Great service from all of the staff and excellent food. Dining area needs air conditioning as it was like a sauna. Prices are a little on the high side.

We stayed at this hotel for one night and had a lovely dinner and breakfast. The dinner was incredible, our waitress was very friendly too. We both loved the soup and the fish especially. We had a lovely breakfast the next day. We found on...our week in Finland most breakfasts in the hotels were quite poor but this was our favourite breakfast. Simple, not a huge section but what was there was very nice. Lovely bread and cheese and the muesli was fantastic. Would definitely recommend a visit for a meal.More

Excellent food and super nice staff! Short menu (easy to choose) with local flavours, impressive wine selection. Athmosphere is superior but not fancy.

Great (hotel) restaurant at Punkaharju ridge. Stylish and well planned menu with natural tastes and local ingredients. As the hotel accommodates families, there were lots of families with children, some having dogs, so there was quite busy atmosphere. Personnel was friendly but not fully professional,...e.g. our waitress was not able to tell which beers the have on the menu and what styles they are. The overall experience was good and for sure, the best restaurant in Punkaharju.More

I visited this restaurant again after some years. It is now under new management, so we looked forward to rediscover it. It was not a disappointment. We had a three course lunch, with 3 starters, choice of a main course and a desert. The starters...were creative and focusing on vegetables, such a zucchini and cheese ( burrata). It also included some lovely pickled "muikku" . My main course was pike perch, which was beautifully done . I even had the desert, ( which I rarely have). Really nice. Perhaps my only comment was that, as the ingredients, are quite suble in flavor, the dishes could have been a bit more seasoned. The service was OK, but they were a bit too busy.More

We lunch, dinner and breakfast the next morning at the restaurant. They use a selection of herbs and what seemed to be wild flowers that blend so well together. The flavors complimented the meals they were served with. Great selection of drinks and we discovered...a top tip, ask about open bottles if you fancy more than one drink but don’t any a full bottle. Ingenious 🥂. The food was fantastic, perfectly cooked and while it rates as an expensive restaurant we found it to be extremely reasonable compared to similar quality in the cities. Service was great and we just could not fault the dining experience.More

The food is excellent, gastronomic level with generous portions, at a very honest price. Two days in a row we ordered the 4-course menu and both times it was excellent. No showing up: you order just an entrecôte and get top quality dry aged steak...with generous truffle slices on it as a very tasty surprise... as an evidence: an entrecôte could not be anything else. The wines were all excellent and the selection interesting and original, and the staff was able to pair the perfect ones with each dish. The service was perfect. The cocktails are also perfectly made. No showing up, just quality and professionalism. I wish I would live closer to Punkaharju..More
