Finnish type "gas station lunch". But the price: 17,5€/person?!? If you need privacy this is the place go for lunch. Don't know anything about the dinner though.

The food was very tasty and beautifully presented. The staff was very helpful, even tough we visited the restaurant on quite a busy evening.

Interior of Matador was like going 30 years back. Furnitures were from that period. It is was somehow in positive way so different. I got good service. Food was okeish.

Nice staff, very good bread. Menu has good variety. Popular buffet (eat all you can) at lunch time. Very close to the Lakeuden Risti Church (at Hotel Lakeus).

This is a lovely restaurant with a good menu. I have been there twice, to eat the delicious liver dish. The wine, the salad bar and the soup, all were good. The staff is friendly.
