Once they opened some years ago, the experience was really good. Not anymore! We had to wait for an hour to even get cold starters served. It could have been acceptable, if having been informed about it beforehand, but it took a long time we were even acknowledged or greeted, when entering the restaurant. Waiters were working under stress (under-staffed?!)... More

Lovely historic finish atmosphere, friendly service! Perfect restaurant for romantic dinner in christmas time. The prices are high, but you cannot have this quality food for pennies. And especially reindeer and bear meat are very expencive products for restaurant keepers, so cannot complain abaut the prices. I would recomend this restaurant for your stay in Vuokatti if you want something... More

We (my family and I) spent six nights in Sotkamo visiting friends. On our last evening there (a Tuesday), our friends wanted to take us out to Ravintola Messi in Sotkamo, but that turned out to be impossible since that restaurant closes at 3 pm on Tuesdays. So we ended up at Kippo instead. We enjoyed it very much. Every... More

Enjoyable atmosphere, good quality food and local ingredients is what I highly appreciate in Kippo! I've been there a couple of times. Menu is varying according to seasons but there is always meat, fish, vegetarian option and local cheese.

I was having a supper with my girlfriend on Easter weekend in this restaurant. There were special menu for Easter time which included salmon tartar for starters, lamb tenderloin for main course and nanny goat cheese with berryjam and mudcake for dessert. Lamb was juicy and really delicious, and dessert was heavenly with all great tastes. I should have choosed... More

Kippo is nicely decorated and offers limited, yet high quality dinner options. We had mushroom soup to start with (rich in taste) and horse meat for the main course. Horse is a rarity and in this case an excellent choice! Only minus was that the horse meat was not domestic and the waitress did not do a very good job... More

Pääruokana muikut olivat erinomaiset! Alkuruokalajitelma oli myös hyvä. Maukkaita pohjoismaalaisia makuja! Viinisuositukset toimivia. Tarjoilijat olivat hyvin palvelualttiita ja ystävällisiä. Mukava tunnelma :) Main course was excellent and starters good. Tasty flavors from North! Wine recommendations great. Friendly service. Nice athmosphere :)

Have visited the place a few times and it is a must visit for me every time I come to Vuokatti. The location of the restaurant is in the basement of Sokos Hotel and from outside it looks like any hotel restaurant. When you enter the restaurant, the atmosphere changes completely. Dim lights, nice smell of tar and traditional Finnish... More

In the Sokos Hotel Vuokatti. There is also restaurant Amarillo, but this is the place to be. Excellent local style food! Best in Vuokatti.
