The staff is extremely attentive & nice. I visited as a sole woman and they made made me feel like a King! I could not even describe how nice they were - and what is more, they will introduce vegan menu and vegan wines. I was spoiled. Why wouln't you?

We visited the restaurant for dinner in an organized group. The display of food was spectacular, but the amounts were poor. The quality was nice too.

Food was good althought they've gone a bit too far with gourmet tricks here and there. Great steak with pure natural tastes in the sauce. Gave an image of Finnish forrest really. Decor both inside and on terrace need a little work..

Teatteriravintola is a traditional restaurant that is located in the old Joensuu city hall building. The same building houses the local city theatre and, indeed, the restaurant and threatre are an integral part of the same package, where you can have a drink during the interval. Yet, it is also possible to visit the place just to have a dinner.... More

I went there for the Kyrö Distillery tasting and social dinner with my friends and it was excellent. First we were told about the distillery and tasted their products and afterwards had a four course dinner. As it was called a social dinner we were served dishes that we shared and everything was really tasty. They even catered our vegetarian... More

A business meeting and buffet in Teatteriravintola was great! The food was excellent and the service was very good. The building itself is more than 100 years old, was designed by famous Finnish architect Saarinen, is very impressive and is worth to see.

Ate here while at a conference. Had goose and goats cheese starter which was a little blander than I anticipated, but still a decent start to the meal. Then had slow cooked pork, which had good flavour. Dessert was the highlight- chocolate ganache with orange jelly. Service was excellent and unobtrusive. Would go back again - my meal with a...

I've been here in early March for business event in the morning. The place is gorgeous and leaves a good and long-lasting impression on the visitor. There is not much "extra", but you get the feeling of being in a unique place. I really appreciated the care we were paid by the stuff and the breakfast was splendid with lots... More
