Here you meet the locals. The founder and owner of the restaurant continues to spin the restaurant despite its old age. Do taste the clear fish soup, a great local delicacy.

Really friendly staff but not efficent or professionals. Had coffee and cake, and the strawberry cheese cake was delicous. Wine was expensive. Quite nicely decorated

Very nice place to visit. We were here on midsummer sunday lunch. Two guys were playing jazz, sun was shining and smashed potatoes with baltic herring was tasty, but the portion quite small. Nice location.

Plentiful lunch in a nice environment. Salad and dessert & coffee included. No vegetarian option in a menu, that's not common anymore.

The food is always good here and with generous portions. The Service was exceptional and our whole experience was enough to bring us back several times

Restaurant is located at old harbour area called Laivasilta-Skepsbro. Really nice area at guest harbour, few hundred meters off commercial center of Loviisa. It has seats inside and during summer also outside seating. We managed to get outside table during hot day. Menu is extensive...enough, basically only one vegetarian option, one soup and so on. I had a burger which had been recommended by a local and I have to say it lived out its recommendation. Before main meal, excellent bread was offered as appetiser. That set the limit very high and burger bun was big disappointment, slightly dry and hard, felt like it had been on the table few hours. Otherwise burger was very good, patty fried as medium plus, with bacon and cheese. The garlic aioli that was served separately with burger, was spicy, so I am not sure if mustard was too, but I smelled garlic for a day, which wasn't bad, as I like garlic. Others had different meals and everyone satisfied, except one who got one hour later stomach upset, but nobody can point anything exactly. Staff was very friendly, however some processes are not in place. For example food is being served, but cutlery is missing. Why not bring the cutlery, when you bring the bread basket. Try also local beer brand "Malmgård". Summary: Recommended especially during the summer because of the atmosphere.More

On a sunny day a perfect spot for salmon soup lunch! For 11 euros you get good value for the money. Soup was tasty and hot, plenty of salmon meat.

Lunch menu is short but of high quality. I don’t think the buffet is worth its price so I had lovely fresh fish at the terrace. Not too expensive for the quality. Lovely staff takes good care of customers. I prefer this place to its...neighbours.More

We went there for a late lunch on a sunny day and were very pleased by the offering and service. We used the terrace, which is quiet despite being closer from the « beach road » (rantatie). We had a nice chicken salad and bouillabaisse. Staff was...very nice, professional and willing to speak English despite being uncomfortable with it. 👍🏻 Thumbs up ! Definitively recommended !
