New year's eve lunch went according to plan, although most customers did not have a reservation, the place slowly filled up after 12:15 onwards.
We did have a reservation and the table was nicely set, whereas walk in customers so not have table settings.
The lunch price is rather pricey for a daily eat, and the offering is similar to other lunch eateries, salad, soup, one hot meal, dessert and tea/coffee.
The salad was a nice assortment of vegetables with various dressings and more dressing available to hand.
Soup was standard, warm and filling to get the appetite going, or as a complete meal for small eaters.
Main course was table served, with only one waitress whereby alcoholic drinks could be served if the water was not enough. On the day we arrived, there was shrimp curry (vegetarian was halloumi curry) and rice or breaded fried meat with potatoes and olives.
The portions were large for the meat, and conservative for the curry. The halloumi was soft rather than grilled, rendering the usual salty flavour tasteless, and over powered by the spices on the mild curry.
Service was pleasant. Home made bread looked to have been over cooked. The ciabatta was extra crispy on the outside, and doughy inside with it being butter spreadable much like a crumpet.
Overall, the ambience is busy and rustic, with a famous personality to eat at. Casual and formal lunch are possible, and another verdict is needed after dining for dinner...

Restaurant Wolkoff is my favourite restaurant in Lappeenranta. They have friendly service and a great lunch. They know how to make great food.

Location is at downtown in an old building. There is a nice inside terrace at summer.

Enjoy!

We went to the restaurant with the highest expectations - perhaps too big, as the restaurant was not able to meet expectations in all respects. The food itself was good, but we expected something more.
