Very nice location with a sea view. Menu was really good. Fresh pike perch tasted delicious. Hamburger and french fries were yummy as well.

The restaurant is near sea, so in beautiful place. Inside the restaurant is not so beautiful, its like school cafeteria. Tasty food and really helpful and nice customer service.

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.

Our second time in this restaurant. Food was really good again, the portions look beautiful and they are big enough. The staff is very professional and helpful. Special thanks to our waitress Mia, she was absolutely great.

I have visited many times and always the food has been excellent. Never disappointed. Beautiful restaurant by the sea in an old brewery building. History and present seen in the athmosphere, service is very pleasant too. Recommend highly!

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!
