Had our lunch break at this resturant, took the tuna salad which was not much in taste even if rather big, a bit odd combination as the cold salad comes in combination with whole cooked potatoe with sauce. With the tuna salad you get some...bread and there is salad bar on top where you can take a starter salad or more for your main which is included the price. The tuna salad was 10,7 euro. Resturant is a bit outdated but friendly service.More

The lunch included salad table and main course. Due to end of lunch time 13.30 the variation was not very impressive and chiken was dry, too long in owen.

On the way back to helsinki airport we stopped for a simple lunch, was rather emtpy and quite outdated in design, quite big menu with a huge range from steaks, pasta and pizza. Just had a grilled chicked salad which as a main goes for...16 euro, and is big enough with fresh grilled chicken in a salad with lots of fruit in it like pineapples and oranges but as well some greens, tomatoes and similar in yellow sweet / sour dressings which fits well. Two small slices of bread go with it. Fast and friendly service.More

Kerava is my hometown. I love it! Short distances to anywhere at southern Finland. Provencale is peaceful nice restaurant near railway and bus stations. Good food with free started salads and good service. Good menu for wines and beers with reasonable pricing.

If you buy a pizza you get as much free salad and cooled water as you want. In case oft that the prices for a pizza (really large) are pretty moderat.

I have been there many times with family for a pizza. For that I can recommend the place. This time we tried it for couple romantic dinner. The food was ok, but definitely not a fine dine dinner. Wine selection was fairly limited and no...champagne on the list, only Spanish sparkling wine. Price level was not too bad, so as long as you know what to expect and and it meets your level of requirements it ok restaurant. Kerava has very limited restaurant offerings and this still from the high end of the list. Note that this restaurant is famous for it's Provencale salad dressing available in some of the grocery stores in Finland.More

Last time we had pizzas, but very often we have had chicken, pork or beef meals. Always good value for the money. Relaxed atmosphere and quick, friendly service.

I have visited Provencale numerous times during the past ten years or so. In my experience and opinion, it has been the finest dining place in the town that has been able to stay in the business in the long run; when some more ambitious...restaurants have operated e.g. in the nearby Elonheimo building, they have had to quit sooner or later. Provencale's menu is a mix of Finnish cuisine (steaks and pork, chicken, fish, and salads), pizza and some pasta dishes. The menu has not significantly changed over the years, but a few additional dishes are available at a time as "the chef's recommendations." A salad bar is included with the main courses. From Monday to Friday, there is a separate lunch menu in the daytime. There are two dining rooms in the restaurant. The one to the left from the entrance is set up as booths that comfortably accommodate four adults, and there is one small table for up to three persons. The other half of the restaurant is an open-layout room, in the middle of which there are two long tables for larger groups. Besides those, there are smaller round and oval tables of varying sizes for about three to six persons. I sometime calculated that there would be seating for nearly 50 people in that room. I have understood that the room could be reserved for a private event. On my most recent visit I had beef with onion and rosemary-spiced potatoes. As usual, the meal was delicious and the portion was large while not excessive. Overall I have seldom been dissatisfied with the food of Provencale, either the pizzas or the steaks. It is an indication of the quality of Provencale's pizza that I have several times observed people fetching takeaway pizza, too, despite the price that is higher than in the competing local pizzerias. I am not knowledgeable in wines, but the red wines that I have tried appeared to be well-rounded and generally fit well with the dishes. The restaurant has Karhu beer (a major beer brand in Finland that is brewed locally in Kerava) on tap, some bottled beer and other beverages in their fridge, and a reasonably well-stocked bar of hard liquor.More
