The restaurant is situated in an old cattle house on the island of Niinisaari. You need to take a ferry (free of charge) to reach the destination. The surroundings of the restaurant represent a traditional Finnish countryside view with structures dating as far as the...18th century.
You can opt to eat either inside or outside, depending on the weather. The restaurant itself is rather small. However, on Sundays there is a large lunch buffet for which the upstairs hall of the restaurant is opened. Whether you plan to visit on a Sunday or between Tuesday to Saturday (closed on Monday), making a reservation is highly recommended as the restaurant is very busy and popular.
The food itself hosts a plethora of traditional local dishes ranging from different delicious fishes to an assortment of salads. The main course is usually a traditional Finnish dish such as the Karelian Stew. All ingredients are local. The dessert typically includes sweet quark with local berries as well as delicious buns baked by the hostess herself! Needless to say, all dishes taste delightful.
The restaurant staff is extremely friendly and attentive, the latter of which is rather rare in Finland. I especially recommend visiting on a Sunday, as eating in the upstairs hall surrounded by antiquities from ages past is an experience in itself.More
You can always be assured of a warm welcome here. Food is good and well priced and you'll never leave feeling empty. Good for families too as the kids can roam around. Well worth a visit if you're in the area.
Freshly cooked local food. We were here off our boat for lunch which we ate in the garden. The salad was well presented in the attractive interior. Salad and soft drinks were included in the very reasonable price. I had perch, my wife meatballs. Highly...recommended simple well prepared food and good service.More
Food is great and good value for money. Local incredients are used with high skill. Friendly prices for kids too. The scenic road and ferry to get there is an experience as well. The traditional country house milieu is nicely kept.
We stayed at Paulala's Log Cabin and had lunch at Niinipuu in early September. It was really interesting for the adults and fun for the kids, as Paula the owner spent some time showing us how she smoked salmon. It was the BEST smoked salmon...we have ever had! Restaurant was cozy and food was downright authentic and fresh!More
