Excellent lunch in a small countryside village. You might not expect! Plenty of choice. You don't leave with an empty stomach! But more importantly the culinarist inside you is very satisfied indeed! You can get the lunch until the late afternoon which is just great...when traveling.More

Visited place on snowmbile trip in region. Very casual but yet simpel and tasty lunch. For such small region in Finland - very good, especially for such low cost.

Kultainen Kukko is famous about its' excellent lunch buffet, made of local ingredients. The Buffet consists of starter soup, salad buffet, bread selections, several main course options and dessert plus coffee! All of this together less than 10 euros per person! The buffet is open...every day - excluding Sundays - from 10 to 15 and it is worth of stopping if and when you travel to North or travel from North. I would even plan my trip to stop at Suomussalmi. Besides of this main restaurant they have a place outside of Suomussalmi, which can be used for special celebrations, family reunions, weddings etc. So, when you drive to North Finland via Main Road #5, remember Suomussalmi and Kultainen Kukko.More

I go to Kultainen Kukko pretty much every time I visit Suomussalmi. The lunch buffet is excellent, food is fresh and extremely tasty, salad bar with freshly baked bread is amazing - you just want to keep eating. The service is friendly and the owner...always has time to chat. I truly recommend this place to anyone who visits Suomussalmi.More

This was our family's third visit to this town centre restaurant and Veikko Huovinene has has built a reputation for his fixed ( and very low) price lunch time buffet with a good choice of really tasty hot dishes using local ingredients and a truly...innovative salad bar., Restaurant is also licensed. Suomusalmi is an ideal place op stop if touring eastern Finland and this is the place to replenish.The owner also owns another restaurant outside town which is ideal for special occasions.More
