We few friends gathered at Jyväskylä for a weekend and traditionally kicked our visit off with a dinner in a nice restaurant. The place was chosen by our host (and democratically accepted by all parties) and what an extraordinary experience this was! Immediately upon our...arrival I was glad I was dressed up a bit finer than what I normally would be in a "basic" restaurant, for so finely were the other groups and my companions as well. The place was kind of small, but in an appropriate, intimate manner. Our waitress was at our table immediately and the service held up all the way. The first drinks arrived very quickly and the drinks for the main course just about the right time. Between them we got a bread basket, which is not an obvious thing in an averagely priced restaurant. And the food! It: was: amazing. Perhaps I should've got my meat medium instead of medium rare but oh my god that lamb was good! The wholeness was as good as it could be. Just the right amount of side dishes and everything. The moisture, the juiciness, how everything complimented each other. The perfection, I'd say. The wine boosted the little things out of the meat. I was speechless for a moment. The price compared to the experience was very low. If I'd pay with cash I would've left a hefty tip, but with a card it's not so common practice so I didn't. I, however, told our waitress to pass special thanks to the cook for the meal. This was perhaps seventh or maybe eighth time ever. The previous was, I think, some five years ago. Kokoonnuimme muutaman ystävämme kanssa Jyväskylässä ja perinteisesti aloitimme viikonloppumme päivällisellä ruokaravintolassa. Isäntämme valitsi paikan, ja vailla vastalauseita kaikki hyväksyivät ehdotuksen, ja hyvä, että tänne tulimme! Heti alussa katselin suurempaa todennäköisesti paikallista seuruetta, ja olin iloinen, että olin pukeutunut hieman normaalia hienommin, kuten seuralaisenikin. Paikka oli melko pieni, mutta juuri oikealla tavalla - tehden paikasta mukavan ja kodikkaan tuntuisen. Tarjoilija oli pöydässämme välittömästi ja palvelu pelasi erittäin hyvin koko illan. Alkujuomat tulivat pöytään erittäin nopeasti ja varsinaiset ruokajuomat juuri oikeaan aikaan. Niiden välissä ehti tulla leipäkori, mikä oli mukava ja positiivinen yllätys. Ja sitten se ruoka! Oli: aivan: mahtavaa. Ehkä olisi pitänyt ottaa medium miinuksen sijaan mediumina, mutta ei hyvänen aika sentään, että oli hyvää karitsaa! Kokonaisuus oli niin hyvä kuin olla voi. Juuri oikea määrä lisukkeita yms. Kosteus, mehukkuus, kaikkien lautasella olevien keskinäinen toimivuus. Sanoisin, että täydellistä. Viini oli nappivalinta, ja toi mukavasti esiin pienet extrat lihasta. Olin kerrankin hetken sanaton. Kokemukseen verrattuna hinta oli alhainen. Jos olisin maksanut fyysisellä rahalla, olisin jättänyt kunnon tipin, mutta kortilla ei vaan ole tapana. Pyysin tarjoilijjaamme kuitenkin välittämään erityiskiitokset kokille ateriasta. Tämä oli ehkä seitsemäs tai kahdeksas kerta ikinä. Edellisestä vastaavast taitaa olla n. viisi vuotta.More

Super experience!! Really nice atmosphere, small and individual place. Kir royal and dry martini were great. A starter - snails and shrimps were nice, we had tenderloin flank steaks - which I can recommend. House red wine was really nice ❤️ we could come again

Snails as a starter were perfect as well as steaks were cooked in perfection. I tried specialty “Kissanviikset sandwich”, which was very big and tasty.

Been here many times. Its the best or sevond best steak place in Jyväskylä. Always great steaks and foods. A bit small for bigger groups, but they will easily fix tables together to get your group in. Great location, great food, great steaks and nice...friendly staff. What else do you want.More

With excellent dishes and well enough, large selection of traditional finnish cuisine. I prefer the snails in garlic = they got the best garlic snails in Finland

This is a rather tiny restaurant with homely decoration full of cat paintings. Due to the size of the place and popularity, it is advised to book ahead. They have a pretty narrow beer selection but have all the basics to choose from if you...are more into beer than wine. The food was good and surprisingly their classic "Perinteinen Viiksen leipä" bread dish delivered. I was pretty suspicious whether the fruits and berries work on the bread or not but they worked. Also, the daily fish dish and escargots were good. The only disappointment was the speed of the service. I don't know if it was due to lack of personel or something else but almost every table was waiting for something.More
