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.

Everything was very smooth; great customer service and foods came fairly fast and most importantly were really tasty, great burgers and chips. Nice environment in an old building, restored with keeping the style historical

We had dinner here two nights in a row and both nights were outstanding. Fish dishes were excellent, pike perch and fish and chips. Also appetiser ravioli and dessert blueberry pie is the best dessert I can imagine. Haven't been here for lunch, so can't...say about that, but definately can recommend for dinner. Nice atmosphere and great food and friendly service.More

I just loved this place! It's a small an cozy place with a small terrace outside. You can get local beer and cider or softdrinks with your food. The menu was wide ranged and the food was really really good!! We also ordered dessert (mustikkakukko,...a Finnish tradiotional dish) which I can recommend for everyone. You can also buy Koli brevery beer and cider from the restaurant to take home with you.More

What a lovely restaurant in Koli Kylä! Our casual lunch turned into a perfect anniversary celebration simply because of Ryynänen delivered fantastic service and food. (Dinner we had planned for the evening changed to a pizza and movie.) I can highly recommend this restaurant to...all travelers and locals. Please test vendace “muikut”.More

The food was delicious and the service really really quick and friendly. The interior of the place is so cosy and charming. Got a recommendation for a local beer from the waiter and it was a perfect match with the fish. We had a 3...course lunch on a Saturday right after the place opened it doors and the place was getting full of people pretty quickly, so I'd recommend a table reservation. Absolutely the place to go when visiting Koli.More

We were at dinner with our friends and enjoyed a wonderful evening. In the back part of building there are some cozy rooms and one of them was reserved only for us. Starter radish salad and chanterelle soup were at high standard like the deserts...(baklava with cloudberry and blueberry pie baked in dough of rye. But the main dish (pike perch marinated with cream and horseradish) was above expectation. All we four diners give 10 of 10 to this rare tasty fish dish. In Ukko-Koli you can enjoy the beauty of national landscape, but if you want to enjoy the delicacy of food meal, you must descend down to the village of Koli (= Ryynänen or in the summertime also to port of Pielinen /Kolin satamaravintola)More

The menu was short but interesting. While waiting I read reviews that complained about delays in service but our wait was just 45 minutes (4 people, lunch). All the dishes we sampled were excellent as were the desserts.

Tasty food and excellent service. I had the local fish and my husband a burger. Both dishes were tasty and good in size. We also had desserts and especially the traditional blueberry cake was excellent! The food came quickly and the staff was professional. The...space is nicely different. Would definitely recommend this place!More

We had a family lunch at this place. The food exceeded our expectations. Vendace made a great pair with Blanche. I have, as a Finn from Eastern Finland, had Vendace many, many times. I have to say that the way how they served Vendace was...an unique one. Very nice. The service was quick considering that the restaurant was full of people during the lunch.

I was very amazed. The place offers good food but at the same time poor service. I got to wait 50 minutes for my dose. I inquired about the delay but got no response. I was told that in an a la carte restaurant it...is normal ??? Funny opinion and not even true. The service attitude is not right.More

We came for the lunch with high expectations. Vegetable soup came with some dried bread slices (not home made as you would expect at these hoods). Soup itself was not tasty at all. I see raw frozen baked buns available :-(… Friendly place, anyway and...nice surroundings ofcourse.More

If you visit Koli, you MUST come to this restaurant. It has the most cozy athmosphere especially in the winter. The restaurant is very popular, so I recommend a reservation and prepare to wait a bit. The wait will be worth it, I promise!
