Access is winter is by a bridge and you can enjoy nice views, nice coffee place and a very nice Sauna that you can rent (if you are lucky and see is frozen they will open a hole in the ice, nice experience).

Try Uunisaari restaurant also in winter when there is a temporary bridge from mainland to the Uunisaari island! Food is good, nothing extraordinary but the location is nice and relaxing. If you are a group of people I'd recommend you reserve the sauna building (there is a possibility for winter swimming too) - you can have your dinner served there... More

If you wanna see some local coastline with a scandinavian twist - Uunisaari and its cosy restaurant is definately a place to visit. If you are lucky - you could see some swimmers even during winter time 🎽🏊

You travel to the island on a shuttle boat which is nonstop in the peak season. The ride costs a few euros. We visited on a when the restaurant had a private function so ate outside in the garden. The atmosphere on the island is relaxed and is definitely worth a visit on a sunny day. There is a public,... More

Had some delicious salmon soup at the restaurant/pub/cafe on Uunisaari. On Sundays (until April 2016), there is the possibility to sauna bathe + relax in the jacuzzi or (if you dare!) ice swim in the sea. There are separate saunas for men and women. The tickets can be bought inside, at the restaurant.

Thank you for your message. We are terribly sorry that you had this kind of experience in our restaurant. Our goal is of course to serve every customer equally! This "Grillbuffet" might please more meateaters than vegetarians, as you mentioned. Our chef will definitely give a second thought in order to make Grillbuffet as delicious for vegetarians! More

We were not there to visit a restaurant, but to visit an island. We had our own food with us. The Finnish coastal archipelago offers a nice place to sit - the stones are flat and warm (taken that it's a sunny day and they've been heated by the sun). Southern part of the island offers a great view to... More

This was one of the better restaurants in Finland. Went there for a business dinner and the drinks, food and ambiance was just WOW. The restaurant has free wi-fi for guests.
