Wanted early evening dinner before a 7pm concert and arrived just before 5pm on a Friday evening. Very warm welcome with excellent table and with quick and efficient service. During the next half hour, the restaurant filled with mainly local people but still the service...was excellent and we finished shortly after 6pm. Food first class. The locally caught fish was excellent as was the pulled duck. Desserts too were very good. Best tiramisu I have had for along time. Waitress was very good; helpful, efficient and speaking excellent English.More

Very good food, especially fish special (kuha--pike perch--when we were there). Duck was very good too, with just the right amount of rhubarb bits to provide a semi-sweet contrast to the sauce and risotto. Wine offerings were excellent and server was knowledgeable about pairings with...food. Nice option for drinking brewer's Teerenpeli single malt whiskey in basement rooms with distilling equipment and aging liquor in barrels, but be aware that you can buy bottles only at Alko stores because of Finnish liquor rules. (There is a branch across the street in the bottom floor of the Sokos store.) Service was excellent. One suggestion would be to supply plates for bread provided at start of meal; it's a bit awkward to be holding bread and having drinks at the same time. Be aware that this is not an inexpensive restaurant.More

Friendly reception and helpful staff. Add great food which is well cooked with good presentation and you have a winner! Been here before a few years ago and I was very pleased to return. The snails with garlic and cheese was superb. Much better than...in France!! Nice selection of bottled beer and a very nice dark lager on draft.More

We remembered this restaurant from out last visit ot Lahti three years ago and were keen to go back. It is centrally located, just off the main street. The premises include a distillery and so many of the dishes feature whisky We had a very...enjoyable meal. The steak with whisky and pepper sauce and the liver with lingonberries were both very good, as was the the house "triffle" dessert. Service was very good and the restaurant has a pleasnt atmosphere.The price for two meals comprising a main course and a dessert plus a glass of wine each come to just under 100 euros.More

Taivaanranta is not the busiest place in Lahti. But it is a very good place. Spent Saturday evening with some friends here, food was excellent, very tasty, nice to look at and well presented. Service was excellent, very service minded, gave us good time but...quick when needed. This restaurant is also a brewery, or was since the brewing moved out of the city centre some years ago. And it is a whisky distillery making several different types of whisky. The oldest being a 10 y.o. Part of the distilling is actually done in the basement. Highly recommended!More

We were a group of 9 persons having a dinner on a Friday evening. The food was good, I would say that 8 of us were satisfied or very pleased with the food we had. The service and atmosphere were good.
