We went there on Friday around 4pm without a reservation and there were only two other tables so there was plenty of tables available. The list contains couple tasting menu options and a la carte list. We felt like having more casual dinner so we...went with the starters and main course from a la carte list. Half of the group liked what they ordered but couple of us felt that it wasn't worth it. One of the melas was a burger which was very salty and the consistency of the burger it self was odd. The restaurant has gone through change recently and the quality just isn't what it should be. The place has potential to be more, it used to be better. Unfortunately the service isn't any better than the burger. We were served by the head waiter, from the get go he seemed rude, we were not sure if he tried to be funny or just plainly rude but he succeeded on the later. And it wasn't just to us, we heard him talking to other customers and it wasn't any better. That said, I must add that the young girl that served us was very nice and kind. I would not personally recommene this place, but I have heard that others have had better experiences even after the rebranding so maybe we just got unlucy and the bad service left sour after taste?More

Located in the very centre of the town, this nice and roomy restaurant offers a brief menu quite extravagantly decorated. The food tastes extremely well and there is a variety of drinks to choose from. Prices are mid/upper range, but if you look for quality,...then I am sure you would not sweat over a fee extra euros. English works quite well in case you do not speak any one of the local languages.More

Had a business lunch here with customer. I really did like the looks of the restaurant inside and out. Lunch was good. Looks fine dining and was it but price was quite reasonable.

Had sweet potato lunch dish. Portion size was small but taste was excellent. Not that pricy (12e) for fine dining lunch.

Experimental cousine in southern Finland was unexpected I must say, but I was also pleasantly surprised. Pork, lamb and even crickets were delicious, everyone was satisfied in our party of ten. Good selection of local (and non) gins, 2hich is always a nice touch. As...often, I'm not the biggest fan of the portion's size in this part of the world. Recommended.More

Friendly service, amazing gin & tonic & just superb food. Even the bread was remarkably good. I had the Pork & Nuts which was amongst the best tasting meals I've ever eaten. Not cheap, but absolutely worth it.

They have lunch of the day and a vegetarian dish that changes every week because all vegetarians want to eat same food for all week. The staff is not able nor willing to tell you about allergens. Fish dishes are a definite no-go, I have...never had such discusting meal especially in an overfished city like Kotka.More

Just were there with friends. Surprise menu with 4 courses with wine package was one of the best menu I have ever eaten. I have traveled from NY to Istanbul so it was nice to get so good from nearby! Highly recommended!
