Seems to be favored by locals, who seek for something easy. Place would benefit from same face lifting as the other restaurants in the same chain. Very standardised lacking personal touch. Easy place, easy to forget. Portions could be bigger.

Siisti ja kiva ravintola keskustassa. Listalla vähän vanhanaikainen valikoima, mutta ruoka oli hyvää. Leikkihuone lapsille! Henkilökunta tosi ystävällistä. Clean and nice restaurant in the city centre. Super nice staff and a playroom for children! Food tasty although bit old fashioned.

Indeed French with a Finnish twist... Escargots with a persillade like in the better brasseries in France... Just missing their house... No problem at all. And of course excellent river/lake fish like pike perch... Just go and enjoy!!
