Having a tasty lunch in a very popular restaurant. This was not any special culinary adventure but mainly a normal "family" lunch with typical Finnish Thursday menu. I will surely come again now I've learnt to know the level of this place.

We had nice Sunday brunch at Ukkohauki the other day. Food was basic but good, cold foods buffet was good but warm foods could have been a little more extensive. Good value however and I do recommend !

Ukkohauki ('Old Northern Pike') has a high quality lunch buffet. I have visited the restaurant frequently and the lunch buffet has usually been very good or excellent. Buffet has normally a good variety of dishes and there is almost always also something special included. During weekends one can choose the whole buffet or a lighter menu consisting of salads, soup... More

I like the atmosphere, variety of food that is often very home made. Enough parking space next to the restaurant.

First time visited this restaurant in our home town. When being there understood why, it´s open only for lunch, weekdays from 10-15 and Sat & Sun 12-18. Ukkohauki has good buffet, with soup, salad, meat & fish. Also vegetarian can find here to eat. Ukkohauki has been working with this concept already many years (asked, but forgot), and it seems...

This place has buffet every day. Salad bar has nice options and is fresh. Soups are maybe the best under estimated food here. Every day there is also pizza available and home made food, usually one pasta, fish and meat option. Very good money value.

I've only been here for lunch but the food was very good. As with most Finnish lunches it was a buffet but the salad was fresh as was most of the hot food. A good selection of bread and good choices for kids. I guess the only downside for me was that the price doubles at the weekend for exactly... More

the lunch buffet is good, several varieties to choose from. But the place is somewhat sterile, the atmosphere is nothing specific.

Apparently favored by nearby company personnel for lunch, although I've tried only with family for weekend late lunch. Nice buffet table including something for the kids also (e.g. pizza slices). Seemed to work reasonably with kids although we have not tried many times. Athmosphere wise there is a sort of homely feel, although also a bit like a lunch cafeteria.... More

Sallad, soup, pizza and two or three dishes. You pay 8,80 euros and help yourself from lunch buffet. Usually well prepared food, quality well above regular lunch diners. Don't be surprised if you have trouble finding place to sit, this place is popular among people working around surrounding areas. Thursdays you can usually get finnish speciality: peasoup and pancakes.
