Late dinner during Lahti Ski World cup with two friends. The service staff with their natural positivity was one of the best I've experienced in Finland. Food was local and seasonal and very well made. Think Taivaanranta is worth of gastronomic trip to Lahti.

There is not too many fine-dining restaurants in Lahti and fortunately this place exists. Always friendly service and very good food. Recommending.

This was the second time we celebrated my parents bday at this location and both times we felt we were robbed. First time was my mother's 60th where we got dry chicken 🍗 breast and a slimy sauce. Today was my father's 70th bday and we went for the fish 🐠 and we're disappointed. The starter salad bar is trumped... More

A place with good mood. The staff seemed to be very happy and enjoyed their work. It's always a pleasure to visit a restaurant where both customers and staff enjoy to be! The food was excellent and the housewine was very tasty. I will buy the same wine to our home also!

This place left a great impression on us. It is nice and cosy inside, great rustic ambiance, very good food and excellent service. Food was spectacular but... portions were too small .

We had early dinner in the Taivaanranta restaurant. The service was very good. The local beer had some unique flavors, worth trying. It was early for dinner, so our food came quickly. The outside terrace is very nicely setup. It was a surprise not find out anyone else in this space. Everything was very clean and fresh. Vegetarian, not to... More

Visited there today for a lunch. Friendly place, points for that. Starter salada bar was also good, actually tuna pasta salad was really good, but sadly best part of the lunch. Main lunch came after fairly long wait. When it arrived, it looked like small, something were missing from plate. I ordered beef filet, tomatoe salsa and cheese pure and... More

This sort of sums up the phrase in Finland...Aika Hyvä which means "quite good"...nothing special but nice enough to warrant a visit. Food is more or less traditional fair and good quality.

What a dinner. Straight at the welcome we met the cheerful smiles and sunny faces. Food was prepared in a semi-open kitchen and was truly delicious and portions were looking tempting. Menu is diverse and of local cuisine with local products, too. Also homemade specialities. Atmosphere and interior is timeless and classy, comfortable seating.

Thank PepiFinland
