Raiku serves hearty home food from a buffet. Also good vegetarian options available. Coffee is included into the price, as it should be in a lunch restaurant in Finland. A simple decor, but big, beautiful windows to the outside. Bustling and happy atmosphere, friendly service....More

Basic but tasty food from simple, good ingredients. Soups and salads usually the best. Nothing fancy, friendly service and relaxed atmosphere. Raikussa saa kelpo ruokaa hyvistä raaka-aineista, ystävällinen palvelu ja simppeli mutta rento meininki.
