Small restaurant with mostly fish menu. Very delicious with moderate prices. Salmon soup, mussels with blue cheese and escargot are highly recommended.

Nice restaurant close to the freight harbour. We had a room completely dedicated to our networking dinner. Buffet of international/Finnish dishes. Waiters served only the wine (2 glasses included in the price). This is a Scandinavian habit. They are serving a limited number of glasses...More
