There has been a shortage of good, stable restaurants in Lappeenranta. Snails were good, marble beef was awesome and restored my faith in eating meat. Recommended wine was really good. I and the rest of the crew enjoyed. Staff was extremely nice and told really well what and why to take.

The service was excellent. The food was good, at least the escargot and the others at our table enjoyed theirs. My white fish was dry though, and rather tasteless. But with good company, it didn't make much difference.

We were 9 and had pre ordered our meals. Service was good and food and drinks too. Chicken, salmon... all tasted good, even though the presentation was rather every day style. But, I will certainly return.

I chose lamb meatloaf with roast potatoes for my mains (the other choice was salmon burger, which was basically a filet of salmon stuck in a bun). The... More

We have been there for lunch that costs 13,5 euros which is quite expensive even for Finland. Soup was oversalted, main dish (lohiburgeri) was poor with 2 pieces of too much roasted potatos.

Very nice that this town has a new restaurant, where they have made a good effort with the atmosphere and decoration. The brand, the menu, the location has a flavour of locality, which is very nice. It is an open space, which made it very noicy, as the restaurant was fully booked. The food although was unfortunatelly average. Due the... More

Authentic restaurant, perfect food and excellent service! They have exceptionally good selection of gluten free and lactose free food - almost everything. And the gluten free bread was the best I've ever had! I had broiled arctic char, turnip puree, roasted leek, potato grain porridge and butter sauce for main course. The dessert chocolate marquis, white chocolate and gooseberry was... More

Enjoyed having Christmas lunch at Wanha Makasiini Bistro where the interior has been carefully designed to be in harmony with the mileiu Lappeenranta fortress. The food was also delicious :)
