This restaurant's food and service will never be a disappointment. Domestic local food imaginatively prepared. Unexpected flavor combinations always charm time and time again. For me, the environment could not be more pleasant. Thank you!

First time to visit Kokkola so went for a walk just after arriving in the evening and discovered this restaurant. It is quaint, comfortable, extremely friendly and excellent food. I tried the 5-course set menu, though the al la carte was very tempting. Well considered wine list was on offer but I chose to have matching wines with the meal.... More

Extremely flexible service in terms of diets and allergies. The waitress explains - almost too detailed- the ingredients. The food is excellent, the service friendly, the facilities are old-fashioned classic but neatly furnished. Cons: Not for disabled.

Nice place. Elegant and Not too expensive. The pork was excellent. It tasted like veal sirloin. Good service.

The best restaurant in Kokkola. Service is top notch. Great wines. The kitchen is using local ingredients while creating great Finnish / Scandinavian dishes. Absolutely the place to go when you want to celebrate a special day. They have great theme menus too!

Probably the best restaurant in Kokkola, very friendly service and excellent quality of food. Not fancy but quality products. Reindeer was of excellent meat quality and well prepared. The atmosphere in the old house added to the original experience.

Restaurant is located in the Neristan (Kokkola Old City). Atmosphere is very unique, because restaurant is located in old apartment building. Food is good, but expensive. Portion size is small.

First time in Kokkola. Vanhankaupungin ravintola was just a great experience after long ride by car. We are snails and salmon as starters. Both of those were excellent. Main courses were lamb and goose. Really nice! Gabbage couscous was something extraordinary I will try at home as well. Service was also really great. We recommend this place if you ever... More
