Although this restaurant offer almost all day buffet (at least during winter time) we chose a lunch from the menu. As a fish meal lover I took salmon meal with mashed potatoes and grilled vegetables. For the dessert we chose old time blueberry pie with...icecream. Delicious all together.More

We had a very pleasant buffet lunch at the Lokki restuarant. It is located right by the lake and has splendid views. The main dish on offer was roast chicken in a tasty sauce. The was a generous variety of vegetables, salads and desserts. All...fresh and of good quality. At 10 euros a head (including coffee) it was very good value.More

The restaurant is situated right by Lake Vesijärvi with very nice views. The Saturday lunch buffet was very tasty with lots of different dishes to choose from. The service was good too. The only thing I didn't like was that some of the glasses had...stains on them.More

We had ordered table for mother's day and we we were told that it should be on terrace but it is going to be warm there. We were prepared to have nice lunch but it was too cold. I felt that the money was the...most important thing with the restaurant. We had to pay our lunch, order drinks and pay everything before we got the table. No serving to the tables. And then we waited for our drinks. Food was quite okay but plates run out of and waiters did not time to clean the tables. Strawberries in the dessert cake were still frozen.More

We visited this restaurant twice this summer. First time the buffee lunch was served at the covered terrace. Great variety, lots of fresh fish, awesome sallads, tasty appetizers. A chef cooking meat, sausages and fish in the hot plate. Also enough options for a vegetarian....The second time buffee was set inside the restaurant. Less variety, but the quality still excellent. Specially the salmon soup was excellent. Have to mention this because I never liked the salmon soup, but this was very creamy and tasty. Great, helpful staff. The only complain I would have, is that somehow some birds had found their way inside the closed terraze. They did not touch the buffee food, but still it is a health risk that they flying around inside the restaurant.More

We came to Lokki with a relatively large party (20 guests or so), and overall we had an enjoyable evening. The restaurant is located on the Vesijärvi waterfront, near the Lahti Harbour, although not exactly at the heart of the harbour where most of the...other bars, cafes, and restaurants are located. Still, there are good views of the lake, especially around sunset. We opted to go with the buffet, to avoid the hassle of ordering individual dishes. At the time, the buffet cost 25 euroes per person which seemed like a good deal for dinner, particularly on a Friday evening. The buffet included a wide selection of cold foods, hot/grilled foods, and coffee and dessert. Many of our guests also ordered alcoholic beverages. The cold foods buffet was quite average, and some of the more stale dishes, such as breads, had probably been out there for hours. The hot foods tasted a bit more fresh, as the grillmaster was replenishing certain dishes over the course of the evening. The coffee and dessert were fine. The service was generally friendly, and the hostesses/waitresses spoke multiple languages which helped with our multilingual group. I would have liked to up the rating to four points for Lokki, but the food was quite average. There might have been more selection than at an average cafeteria, but the quality of the food did not impress (particularly the cold foods). Although the location is quite nice, the ambiance, especially for a pleasant Friday evening, seemed rather dead and tired. The restaurant was more than half empty. The restaurant has lots of potential (definitely in the four and above range), but after being in business for as many years it has been, it is strange that Lokki has not managed to realize it. Still, for organizing a lunch/dinner outing for a large group, on short notice, I would have Lokki on my shortlist, although they did not offer any group discount.More
