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.

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. The service was also friendlyMore

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 ordered pike-perch and muikku for main and muikku roe and vegetable soup for starters. Excellent food and especially the muikku roe starter was extremely good. Top notch service also!

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!

The food in the restaurant is first class and very tasty. However, it is a good idea to set aside enough time and avoid coming very hungry, as you may have to wait a little longer for food than elsewhere.

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
