Decided to visit Porvoo as a day trip from Espoo. Happy to have done so! Had lunch here and it was a lovely experience. Staff were welcoming and friendly. The restaurant is opposite of the market place, and set amidst a park, making it very...pretty and scenic to dine on the terrace. Had the Iberico Pluma and Ribs. Very well done. Succulent and juicy. Delicious. I must say the country style French fries were good! Crispy and tasty, a great complement to the ribs. The Iberico came with Spanish style patatas bravas and sauce. Very good. Restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating. Nice ambience both in and out. Since we were two, we sat in the upper terrace. Lower deck was larger. Nice lunch experience. Definitely recommend going. Also, it is only a 6 minute walk to the river side area where we later walked for coffee and sweets.More

Food 3,5 Tried two steaks, in both the meat was very good but the sauces were meh. Their smashed potatoes is great. Place is very nice, both the terrace and inside. Service was a bit poor, as if the waiter was bored.

The atmosphere of the restaurant is nice. The food was mediocre. The doses ranged in price; steaks € 30-40 and burgers under € 20.

The food at this place was delicious. The whole company was satisfied with what was ordered. The only point of improvement might be the attention gotten from the waitresses and it wad difficult to communicate in English as they only spoke Finnish. But the food...definitely made up for it.More

If the service was not that good and kind, the rating would have been a point lower. The food was ok, no big surprises. However, expectations were a bit higher. A hint to restaurant...check that the glasses on the table are clean...
