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.

Reviewed 13 August 2022 via mobile

I understand the current pricing for inflation, but it was 16.90Eur for the halloumi burger, and another 5e for fries. So, all in all, 22e for burger and fries. Too much mayo on the bread, and the batter of the halloumi was flaky, making the...halloumi under cooked... Quite disappointing, given the different rave reviews for the place. Then they're is extra charge for water only, when the juice option was limited to only that what is available for breakfast. All in all, a poor value for money and it felt like day light robbery! I would not recommend it, and the menu options are not that advanced to consider this as a good restaurant choiceMore

Oscar Restaurant is hosted by Hotel Oscar in Varkaus, a small industrial town in Eastern Finland. Restaurant is seemingly pretty quiet - we visited there on Friday and there were only a few customers in the Place. Food was not at all bad: we had...a shared antipasto plate, salmon, chicken, dessert and some wine, everything worked well for hungry travellers. Service was kind and helpful. This restaurant is doubtless one of the best places for visitors in this town.More

And Great Food! Steaks, chips with green beans with bacon. You can get it every where. However this was what I felt like. Entering the restaurant, I was received with genuine smiles and service all around. Great variety on the menu- I was not presented...to the wine menu, however recommended the House Red. Not bad at all! The steak and trimming was excellent!! Try it !More

The waiter was extremely stressed and removed my plate almost the moment I had finished. I got the strong impression that he wanted us to clear off immediately because he was too busy to attend to customers.

The restaurant surprised me with the nice and friendly fast service. Interior was peacefully and I could have my dinner without noise from others. The food was very good, I had pike-perch and did not regret my choice. I could also get some not so...common beer. What I was missing was an option to a fresh salad table. Price, not so so expensive.More

I stayed in this hotel twice. First in the spring of 2013 and again on fall, a week at a time. The hotel itself is ok and the location in the middle of the city. Staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were satisfying....A place to put your head to rest. There's not much to do in Varkaus. I walked to the movie theatre once. The hotel bar had the prettiest fireplace I've ever seen. Food was good in the restaurant.More

We had a light business meal here. Despite the fact that the restaurant was not offering a smörgåsbord or normal lunch they prepared us very tasty salad lunch. Quality good and ingredients tasty. So based on this experience can be recommended. Meeting room was also...ok.More

Restaurant was fully booked due to the childrens camp at the city. Restaurant was aware of it already 12 months in advance so the service was a suprise - slow and poor attitude. Chicken was burned with peppers and dishes overpriced. When we complaned the...waitress said like; "why didn't you say it immediately, I'm busy and not working here regularly?!?!' no discount given, no apologises. But - she invited us to visit the Varkaus talo to see the upcoming events, 'cause she was a host of it. Dream about it....More

There was delicious fresh fish from the local area. The dinner was expensive but very good. The fish antipasti and the salmon were excellent. The breakfast buffet was sufficient but not to much choice between the different types of breakfast. Bt you could get for...everybody something, from fish to fruits, bacon and eggs. The service was good and everything was clean.More
