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.

Very good food and good portions! I had the salmon dish with french fries and was not disapointed. The salad was very tasty and there was a lot of salmon. Only negative were the fries: they tasted a bit like Mc Donalds. The other choice,...cream potatoes were ok but not necessarely better. Would recommend anyway! Also a family member had the margarita which she states was drink the best of her life.More

Stopped here while staying in Kalajoki. Fish weren't playing, so it took a lot of bait and regular fishing rod to catch anything. But then we got a 2kg salmon, which they smoked on site. My rating would be higher, but I thought the smoking...left our salmon overly dry (we have a smoker at home which leaves the salmon nice and moist) - and cost at approx €18 per kg seems high compared to buying it in a shop.More

Fishing can never be guanteed cacth as one hopefully might realise and as an activity requires also a certain level of patience. Sometimes actually you might not catch at all. Kinda the "nature" of fishing. In this case and when in a hurry customers are...More

The best restaurant because we tried them all and we ended up going here the last 2 nights because the service is friendlier, the food is served faster and the quality is better. Simple! The owner of the restaurant is really nice, funny and friendly....She really cares about her customers and it almost feels like being home when there. Menu is short and only fish but you get a really nice portion of fresh fish and sides are very good too. Good wine and beer available too. Highly recommended if in Kalajoki!More

They are in another end of the Kalajoki Beach, so not all people even know this one. Nice location, because next to this place are amazing houses(there were Housing Fair couple of years ago). You can order your Fish from the desk or if you...have time, you can try to catch it yourself and then they smoke/prepare it to you. Large terrace outside and on a sunny day place was full. Waitress said that it's gonna take awhile to get our food and when we had our portions, they got us some extra Whitefish and again they apologized because it took so long. But no worries for us, because that's how you should handle these kind of situations. We also bought some souvenirs from their little shop, so all good and overall nice, delicious visitMore

They got special sushi cook visiting, thus tried the sushi. Taste was excellent and all ingredients were fresh. Only complaint I would have was the slow service, though it appeared that normal smoked fish dishes were served rather much faster, thus if you are on...hurry, stay traditional.More

Fun and exciting to catch such a big fish, and then get it prepared for you with some potatoes, bread and salad - pure awesomeness (and great taste). Highly recommended.

Freshest fish I ever had. We caught a rainbow trout ourselves, great fun with kids! An our later the fish was smoked and ready to eat. All the food (we were there twice and had the 'normal' a la carte as well) was excellent. Small...variety but really good! If you like to eat fish, highly recommend this place!More

For those who love to eat fish. You can catch it yourself too. The fish was small what I got but tasty. Lot's of potatoes came with it and for extra money I got salad as well. Once a year when the weather is warm...it is a nice place to eat.More

Very cute place and fresh fish. There is a possibility to catch your own fish as well. The road there is "under construction" but don't lose hope, it is there!

Since fish comes from the pond by the restaurant and is prepared there right after catching, it's truly fresh and tasty. Menu has a lot variety for lighter and healthier options too, which is a nice change. The building, garden and the whole set up...is beautiful and it's a lot more than just a place to eat, because you can catch your own fish and feed ducks.More
