Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The menu was a disappointment, and food non better. The appetisers were expensive and the flavours were horrendous. Would not recommend considering that the menu is expensive. Wine was good.

New year's eve lunch went according to plan, although most customers did not have a reservation, the place slowly filled up after 12:15 onwards. We did have a reservation and the table was nicely set, whereas walk in customers so not have table settings. The...lunch price is rather pricey for a daily eat, and the offering is similar to other lunch eateries, salad, soup, one hot meal, dessert and tea/coffee. The salad was a nice assortment of vegetables with various dressings and more dressing available to hand. Soup was standard, warm and filling to get the appetite going, or as a complete meal for small eaters. Main course was table served, with only one waitress whereby alcoholic drinks could be served if the water was not enough. On the day we arrived, there was shrimp curry (vegetarian was halloumi curry) and rice or breaded fried meat with potatoes and olives. The portions were large for the meat, and conservative for the curry. The halloumi was soft rather than grilled, rendering the usual salty flavour tasteless, and over powered by the spices on the mild curry. Service was pleasant. Home made bread looked to have been over cooked. The ciabatta was extra crispy on the outside, and doughy inside with it being butter spreadable much like a crumpet. Overall, the ambience is busy and rustic, with a famous personality to eat at. Casual and formal lunch are possible, and another verdict is needed after dining for dinner...More

Restaurant Wolkoff is my favourite restaurant in Lappeenranta. They have friendly service and a great lunch. They know how to make great food. Location is at downtown in an old building. There is a nice inside terrace at summer. Enjoy!

We went to the restaurant with the highest expectations - perhaps too big, as the restaurant was not able to meet expectations in all respects. The food itself was good, but we expected something more.

We had a lunch in this centrally located place in Lappeenranta. We chose the seats beside the lively street. The meal included sausage soup and varied starter salads from the buffet, as well as some freshly baked bread. Space around the buffet was quite tight...and at some moments the place was a bit crowded. The main courses were meat skewers with grilled vegetables and pasta farfalle with shrimps. Service was relaxed and the food ok; not super but all in all a decent lunch. Pricing was reasonable, the lunch costed only 13,50/person.More

One of the best restaurant experiences in my life. Everything was perfect, from the risotto to the delightful steak. I've rarely eaten so well. Worth every euro.

This is one of the best and most charming restaurants I've visited in Finland. The food was quality dishes from the season. Good value for money. Service and presentation of the food was really good. I will definitely come back whenever I'm in Lappeenranta.

My husband and I recently had lunch at Wolkoff. The ambiance was lovely and comfortable and the service was welcoming and attentive. For lunch, the restaurant offers a salad bar and a choice between two main dishes. The items at the salad bar were fresh...and delicious and we enjoyed the eggplant parmigiana. If had spent more time in Lappeenranta, we would have returned to this restaurant for dinner.More

Good scandinavian food and great kind service! Visited for lunch and the salladtable had a lot of home made traditional dishes! Also plus for great wine offer on lunch time! Obly minus is that the soup could have been warmer!

We stopped over during a walk in the city. We were greeted by a friendly hostess who advised us to join the guided tour starting in 10min. You could only visit the shop and the office for free. The guided tour took you to the...flat - different rooms, kitchen etc. the tour was extremely interesting mainly due to the hostess. She was able to share the history and explain about the family etc. You can not access the flat without the guided tour.. but worth visiting if you are into localhistoryMore

Wife had summer menu with wine tasting menu. I had the perch, had asked for veggie/vegan alternative which they did offer but found fish too tempting. Pretty good service. Relaxed atmosphere.
