Food was very good, but... The restaurant is nice, service was nice and food good, but the size of the portions is close to ridigulous. Luckyly the day was very warm and we had a late lunch, so we were not that hungry. Othervice we...would have been hungry afterwards.More

Restaurant Sicapelle is located in the basement of hotel Onni, just next to cathedral of Porvoo. The venue is cozy and decorated tastefully. In the evenings they offer 4 or 6 course menus. We chose the menu of six with additional cheese plate to share...with. In addition we shared a paired wine package which was sufficient for 2 persons. Way too often this kind of menus have their highs and lows. In our case at Sicapelle there were only highs! Each portion was packed with flavors and the presentations were mouthwatering. The service was smooth and friendly, so the whole experience was exceptionally good. Highly recommended!More

The restaurant is located in a very nice and pleasing location but the food isn't very good and nothing special. For example the salmon had very little salt and was quite flat all around. The risotto felt more like morning porridge and the 'iberico' was...basic to say the least. Dessert was good but nothing special. And after hearing so much about this restaurant, our meal was definitely disappointing to say the least.More

This restaurant has been in our list for a long time because of it’s previous good reputation. We went for a 4-course lunch on Saturday to celebrate our daughter birthday. I can say that it was the worst place to spend almost 400€. Terrace is...very nice - 2* are for terrace and dessert, which was only decent course. All other courses were extreamly poor - ”Iberico” pork was saulty as hell. They have 500 wines in their cellar but only few white wines are cooled and ready for serving. Bottle prices are quite high - starting from 58€.More

One of our favorite restaurants. Tasty food and great service. Whenever we have guest we bring them here. 6 course dinner was amazing, but I also recommend coming here on Saturday or Sunday for brunch.

Went there for their Sunfmday brunch. We had a reservation which was good to get better table (shadow on a hot sunny day) from the terrance. Service was friendly all the way. Brunch was very Finnish and it was nice to notice that they were...able to do very good food from quite basic incrediants. Food was fresh and tasty. It was bit of a pricy side but did the job. Would eat here again.More

There is a menu where you can choose 2-4 courses of your choice. I booked table advance and got vegetarian menu. Athnosphere was lovely and waiter was very nice. Food was great for 44 euros. Flawours were just perfect. Advice to book table before because...place us quite small.More

At the end of December we got opportunity to visit in Porvoo and in SicaPelle. We chose the restaurant based on good evaluation and understanding to have high level dining experience. Two points are coming from friendly service that we got during our stay. Unfortunately...everything else was far away from our expectations. Six course menu with matching wines was struggle to “walk” through. We all had challenge to find flavors of the different ingredients and even further we were struggling to match wine with the set dish. It is great to see that driver is local food and bio wines but it might need some additional focus to ensure that there is a match with the dishes. Overall experience was not only suffered by the average food quality and wines but also rush that service team was trying to correct as best as they could. We couldn’t understand main driver for hurry that doesn’t match when high level dining experience is established. It might be that overbooking or searching maximizing the profit are the drivers and it doesn’t serve benefit to establish high level dining experience. Based on our experience we can not recommend SicaPelle for fine dining place and we would recommend to invest the experience to other restaurants in Porvoo. It was unfortunate that our high expectations turn down to full disappointment. To achieve level of competing fine dine restaurants in Finland takes a lot of effort and even more to meet international quality to achieve overall fine dine experience. It might be possible also in SicaPelle but it need work and more focus and until that has taken place our group will invest our money to other fine dine restaurants.More
