Exelent courmet lunch even in very low season. Beginners on buffet table were lavish, 5-6 different fish dishes, several salads, even greamy salomon fish soup. Main course, pike perch, was just perfect with its mild flavors. And crown to all, live piano music !

Just next to the Maretarium you find the first restaurant after leaving the guest harbour. And do not need to look more. This was a good choice. Big plate of mashed potatoes and fish. Delicious!!!!

I have eaten in this harbour front restaurant a couple of times and am always happy with the food quality. Excellent fish. Nice ambiance but restaurant is usually quiet. Friendly service and good wine list.

I visited this restaurant on a Monday evening. There were only two other guest ,so I had the full attention of the wait staff/hostess. I ordered the perch with a salad and a glass or red wine. The atmosphere was quaint and cozy. There are plenty of booths to accompany 6 people at a time. The service was good and... More

We just went in for lunch without knowing what the restaurant offers and what it costs. They offered a fresh buffet with a great variation of fish and salads. There was also fish soup and fried fish. Also coffee and some sweets were available for desert. As a whole the buffet was really a positive surprise. Before we got the... More

Wanha Fiskari is so conservative, that coming from hipsterian Helsinki we felt like stepping into a David Lynch fantasy. Inside the darkish panelled and embroidered interior is a very cozy old school restaurant. Serious about tried and tested delicious food and professional service. Our lunch was smoothly sound-tracked by a bearded pianist who could casually mingle while his fingers jammed... More

Don't need to say much. In the area for business and the local employees recommended Wanha Fiskari. Restaurant was exquisite. The atmosphere may have come off as slightly stuffy and old fashioned, but the service was fantastic as was the food. I'm not a big fish guy but I've been slowly moving my way toward finding comfort in seafood, especially... More
