Probably the best food in Kainuu area and the best food in Sotkamo. Amazing pizza, very good steak, excellent hamburgers. Tolerable prices and quite fast, kind service.

We visited this restaurant with our friends during lunch time. The service was a disappointment: we weren't offered menus nor water before asking. We sat down and a waitress took a while before coming to say that we can start the buffet when we want and then we asked for the menus and water. Menus we got, water was self-service... More

We were there about a week ago. And the Place was very nice. We got the food under fifteen minutes and the pizza was very good and chicken meal was very good too. There is not lot of choices in Sotkamo. This might be the one of the best restaurants.

Don't be put off by the drab exterior, it's really nice inside! Welcoming staff with excellent English, nice atmosphere and great food.

This was a pleasant suprise--not a great variety of evening restaurants in Vuokatti/Sotkamo. However, this is worth visiting...and visiting again!

Having been to wonderful Vuokatti Finland last week, i tried this restaurant which is just 7km away from where i was lodged. Its situated at the boundary of Sotkamo when driving from Vuokatti. Cannot be missed for sure since the name Messi is displayed majestically. Have to say that it was one of the best restaurants that i visited when... More
