Food was bit pricey, but considering the lake nearby and the astonishing surroundings of the hotel, I can understand it. Service was friendly, but there was a communication mistake from the kitchen. I ordered the fish of the day that was advertised to be pike...perch (same that I during my earlier visit considered top notch). Upon receiving the I found out it to be rainbow trout, unsalted and cooked dryer than a shoe sole. The waiter did nothing to correct the problem. Nor did they offer any compensation for the mistake. I am a regular customer and can see the level of cooking varies a lot depending on who is in the kitchen. Positive note is the lunch in this place is generally very good.More

The place is so beautiful in summer by the lake. The old building seemed to be newly renovated and it is surrounded by a pretty garden. There are small boutiques you can visit if you have time. The lunch we had was really delicious. There...was coffee/tea with cake for dessert. The service was friendly, relaxed and polite. Highly recommended !More

Do not go here. Lunch is relative expensive but it was running out. I have not earlier seen this anywhere else, you pay but food was running out. Very disappointed.

Went here to eat with friends. The pizzas were really delicious, but quite expensive. It costed us over 70€ with three pizzas, two beers and one coke. I was also bit dissapointed that on the best time for mushrooms, they used canned ones, instead of...fresh picked ones. What we were watching to the other tables, the foods came to diners on different times, one girl needed to wait for hers ten minutes, after everyone else on her table got theirs. Before we left, the waiters put the loud dishwasher on, which is in the dining area for some weird reason... Like said, food was good, but not sure will ever go back, because of the prices and slow service. I just don't think the experience is worth the money.More

The surroundings are beautiful on a lake side and the location and the view combined in the country manor styled surroundings are the best things Vaihmala has to offer. Looks like a nice place to stay, but have only had dinner and luch a few...times. Food is decent and usually well cooked but really nothing memorable or fancy. I kinda get the vibe the restaurant is trying to be more posh that it really is. Food slightly pricy in some points, but it is the nicest place to go for dinner in this village. Service ok, never outstanding but few individuals exceed in particular, some not so much. As w hole experience very barely makes 4 stars. Considering only food and service it would barely make 3. If you want real fine dining go to Tampere. If you are happy with decent village restaurant, go for it. Especially in the summertime it's lovely!More
