The best restaurant because we tried them all and we ended up going here the last 2 nights because the service is friendlier, the food is served faster and the quality is better. Simple! The owner of the restaurant is really nice, funny and friendly. She really cares about her customers and it almost feels like being home when there.... More

They are in another end of the Kalajoki Beach, so not all people even know this one. Nice location, because next to this place are amazing houses(there were Housing Fair couple of years ago). You can order your Fish from the desk or if you have time, you can try to catch it yourself and then they smoke/prepare it to... More

They got special sushi cook visiting, thus tried the sushi. Taste was excellent and all ingredients were fresh. Only complaint I would have was the slow service, though it appeared that normal smoked fish dishes were served rather much faster, thus if you are on hurry, stay traditional.

Fun and exciting to catch such a big fish, and then get it prepared for you with some potatoes, bread and salad - pure awesomeness (and great taste). Highly recommended.

Freshest fish I ever had. We caught a rainbow trout ourselves, great fun with kids! An our later the fish was smoked and ready to eat. All the food (we were there twice and had the 'normal' a la carte as well) was excellent. Small variety but really good! If you like to eat fish, highly recommend this place!

For those who love to eat fish. You can catch it yourself too. The fish was small what I got but tasty. Lot's of potatoes came with it and for extra money I got salad as well. Once a year when the weather is warm it is a nice place to eat.

Very cute place and fresh fish. There is a possibility to catch your own fish as well. The road there is "under construction" but don't lose hope, it is there!

Since fish comes from the pond by the restaurant and is prepared there right after catching, it's truly fresh and tasty. Menu has a lot variety for lighter and healthier options too, which is a nice change. The building, garden and the whole set up is beautiful and it's a lot more than just a place to eat, because you... More
