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.

Beautiful place, with a seaview. Food was really tasty. Pricerate is reasonable. We had to wait food long time and we all got food except one of us, he got his food when we all already have eat.

Lunch on Saturday without reservation. We was told that waiting time may be over half an hour. It was not. Fishssoup Keisarinkeitto keitto was ok. Dish was big (when you order big) but not any special.

Visited here for dinner on nice sunmer day. Very nive location and views from the outdoor patio are amazing. Positively surprised with quality of the food. Not over the top fancy but by far best restaurant food experience I’ve had in Kotka.

Food was just okay. I had a vegetarian burger. There was only the burger and fries on the plate, I would have liked some veggies or a dip sauce. The restaurant was very average in decoration. There's a beautiful sea-view and the building itself was...nice. We had with us a 3-year-old who had just gotten up from a nap and was hungry and cranky. The staff was really great, and brought her food out first ahead of the rest of us.More

Worth visiting due to the interesting setting. Lunch buffet was okay, 11eur, very basic/ordinary Finnish food. The staff was very friendly.

This restaurant is situated in an amazing spot, the river joins the sea at a couple of meters from the terrace and the renovated buildings that once served as a brewery is beautiful. The food was very good and tasteful and remember to try out...their own Ukko-beer. In the summer you can go also with your boat as they have their own dock.More

The service was quite friendly and the views outside are nice. I tried not to have too high hopes about the food, even though I had heard a lot of good comments about it. I was disappointed as well as my boyfriend. My white fish...dish was loaded with horseradish, really loaded, which was way too strong for the gentle taste of the fish. As I mentioned about this to the waitress, she replied that "well maybe if you´re not used to the taste.." Okay, I am... My BF's burger was also a let down. The beef patty was clearly a frozen store bought one, tastles, thin and we just stared at it thinking it was a joke. Sorry to say, but we won´t be going back.More

This former industrial building has been renovated and today it accommodates educational institutes and Keisarinsatama restaurant. Beautiful setup next to the sea. Lunch was nice, nobody left hungry. Service was quick and friendly.

Keisarinsatama is located on the sea front, which makes their terrace one of the most scenic views in Kotka. Their staff is warm and friendly, their burgers are second to none. Definately a restaurany worth visiting, even from a distance!
