Its about the whole package. 4 stars because you get a great view over the city and lake. Steak was overcooked by a large margin but still tasted good in the end (fortunately) and the sides were great. I guess I felt forgiving that day....More

View from tis restaurant is great over the Jyväskylä city but this time I was disappointed that restaurant has decided to offer only "Christmas buffee" but no a´la carte. I took the most important customers for dinner but this surprise was not welcomed. They even...More
