Service was exceptionally good and fast when we had an elderly waiter serving us most of our visit. She told everything we needed to know and also recommended that the antipasti plate is so huge, that we should split the portion if we'd wanna eat main course as well. Antipasti's and main course (meat) were very good, wine matched with... More

This restaurant is located at the hotel Sokos Vakuuna, where we were staying. For me, it was the best food in town. I had the pepper steak and my husband, the black and white pork. Both were delicious!! I definitely recommend!

We went there for dinner because it is connected to our hotel, so no need to walk out on a cold icy evening. Escargots with garlic butter was OK, but main dish Bouillabaisse was quite salty....cloud berry crème brulee tasted a bit funny but guess that's the sour taste of cloudberry causing it. Very slow service and main dishes were... More

The food and service was wonderful on a cold winters night and exquisitely prepared. Cosy atmosphere, siting next to an open fire. With a great food and wine list.

If you want great food, friendly service, and wonderful atmosphere, this is the place for you. When it comes to fine dining, this place wins hands down. And while the food is eloquent, the atmosphere is not stuffy; it is friendly and inviting.

Great central location and nice terrace too. It used to be Fransmanni, but new name is Frans & Cherie. Concept is still the same, so it's a chain restaurant serving French Cuisine. Service was friendly and fast. Menu was "safe", so food was not that innovative, but tasted good.
