Amazing buffet with some super local food. Enjoyed it very much and service is top. Atmosphere has something special and the price is right.

We walked quite a distance to this restaurant without a reservation and got lucky. We saw plenty of people turned away so it's a good idea to book. It's got a lovely cosy atmosphere, very friendly and helpful staff and plenty to choose from. It's a buffet style set up so may not suit all, depending on what type of... More

They have a buffet full of FInnish food every evening at Konstan Möljä. If you have a foreign friend (as a Finn) who would like to try different kinds of Finnish foods and get they belly full, this is the place to go to. Different varieties of dishes and tasty too. Do book a table before-hand though. It is always... More

We went to the Konstan Möljä as it was close to our Hotel and we were looking something typically finnish. We felt home as soon as we got inside. The food from the buffet was very tasty and some kind of grandma's style e.g. meatballs and mashed potatoes or some kind of stew of lamb, beef and achovies. But the... More

The reviews on Tripadvisor persuaded me to try Konstan Molja and I was not disappointed. I took previous advice and made a reservation, which was just as well because there was a line at the door and several people without reservations had to wait for some time. We were shown straight to our table. The restaurant was very busy on... More

This small, friendly restaurant has been run by the same family since the 12th of September 1981 (so the leaflet they give you explains) and has a quirky charm which we enjoyed very much. The owners have a strong and proud sense of their sea-Karelian family history and are most hospitable. We'd had a very enjoyable (but, by our normal... More

We were drawn to this authentic Finnish restaurant by its rustic maritime decor and the promise of typical food of Finland. The family-run restaurant is not huge so we’d booked in advance. There was an array of hot & cold Finnish fare on offer and you could venture up to the buffet table as many times as you liked. Between... More

In this restaurant you pay a fixed amount (19 euros, if I remember correctly) and eat as much as you want. Most dishes contain meat or fish but there were also some vegetarian options. The place itself is really pretty however it gets a bit crowded around the entrance, where the buffet table is placed. I really enjoyed the food... More
