We came here for dinner hungry after a few days of hiking around Koli. The place as a cozy homely and relaxed atmosphere, and friendly staff. We had a steak and beef bourguignon, both excellent. The desserts, blueberry pie and chocolate cake, both with icecream...were really tasty as well. They have a selection of local beers, of which the summer ale was especially tasty. The local apple cider can be recommended as well.More

An interesting concept: a restaurant / pub and an old granary or storehouse turned to bedrooms. Good stuff: an excellent sauna that you warm up yourself, very good löyly! 15 eur per two for an hour, an ok price. But consider this, coming from a...Finn: one of the best saunas I ever bathed in! Bad stuff: did not feel exceptionally welcome at check-in. Prices in the restaurant are Helsinki-level: a nine-euro pint of lager. I had vendice & mash for dinner. Great taste but a very small portion. Mentioned this as I paid the bill, and the answer was ”you’re the first to complain”. All in all, nice surroundings but cannot say much for the service.More

Great local food, good service and nice surroundings. The local fresh fish in all form was delicious! Best place to eat in Koli!

Nothing special, just decent food in nice surroundings. Service was a bit on the slower side but quite friendly. Needs some improvement.

We reserved a table one week in advance for 4 adults and 4 kids as we heard good food reviews for this restaurant. Upon arrival everything seemed fine and we were seated right away and ordered drinks and food (main courses). The problem started from...there as our food took extremely long to be served - just under 2hrs! We ordered some drinks and reminded the waitress about our food wait 3 times, but the excuse was "the kitchen is small" and "only two waiters serving that evening." Luckily our kids were all well-behaved and managed to wait that long- we even had to ask for bread twice whilst we waited. The food was excellent, but the service communication is very poor. We would have left after 1hr 30mins, but there is only one other restaurant in Koli at the Scandic hotel. Unfortunately waiting 2hrs for a main course is ridiculous and no matter how good the food tastes, the whole experience was ruined. We left feedback when we left and were provided a good discount. However, we will not return there. This place doesn't seem suited for families at all.More

This was my first time here. I took an Entrecote and some dessert. I know how I like my steak and it has to be tender and medium rare. And it was. It was very tasty and good beef. Also: Service was very nice. Make...note: this might be busy place so you will not get your things in 15 or so minutes. But worth waiting.More

The food was excellent (we got the fish burger and the perch pasta + chocolate cake and blueberry pie for dessert), the service was fast and friendly, and the restaurant interior was traditional and nice. There is a good selection of drinks available, too. Definitely...the best meal we've had in Koli, and, as we live in Kuopio, probably one of the best you can have in Eastern Finland in general.More

After a long walk we stopped here for a couple of beers and a dinner, and what a surprise! I had a kuha fish and chips, probably one of the best f&c ever. Pike-perch is so appropriate for that recipe! Kudos to the chef for...the choice. The carpaccio too was excellent. Capers aren't usually part of the dish, but they fit really well in it. In addition to that, they have really nice staff + wide choice of beers. What else can you ask for?More
