Good food, service and atmosphere. I can warmly recommend. I ate beef in a pot and my companion ate huge bread with among others fruit. It was some kind of house's special. Both were tasty 👍

Lamb was excellent as well as white fish and the portions were delightfully big. Dessert was tasty, too, but this time portions were rather small... The small room was packed full of tables, so you heard quite a lot from neighboring tables. Someone would call it intimate atmosphere, but I would have liked to have a bit more space around... More

This "cat-themed" restaurant has really tasty food, and even though it's not written on the online menu, they also serve gluten free food. Almost every dish can be made gluten-free. All the portions are big, so you won't leave this restaurant feeling hungry. This is not the cheapest place in Jyväskylä, but worth it - main dishes are about 20-30... More

Outside the place doesn't look very attracting - like a 80's restaurant or something, but it is very tidy and comfy. The menu has many alternatives, and you will face a difficult decision of which plate to choose. I rarely go for the stake, but now I did, 'cause I craved for veggies. Now I understand what's all the fuzz... More

This is one of the oldest restaurants in Jyväskylä. It is not on the edge of new and hip food trends but what they serve and how they serve is delightful! I always have snails and beef, some fruity after that. They have short but well builded wine list. Kissanviikset means cat whiskers and nams shows inside!

Perinteinen yhdistelmä suomalaista ja slaavilaista ruokaa. Hyvä ja asiallinen palvelu. Hintataso on korkeampi kuin ketjupaikoissa, mutta ruoka ei tule tukusta pusseissa, vaan se tehdään selkeästi itse. Kissaviikset kuuluu Jyväskylän kivijalkaan, siellä pitää käydä. A traditional combination of Finnish and Slavic food. Good service. Prices are higher compared to chain restaurants, but the food is clearly self-made, not derived from ready... More

And this street is closed in the end so its better to leave your car on some other street. We took as a lunch good pearch with vegetables and mushrom sauce. I really... More

Basic food with good service. Atmosphere was nice. I would like to see more enthuism with the menu. The restaurant has a long history in Jyväskylä, but need refreshing.

Atmosphere is peaceful but yet you can maintain discussion with your table group. Service is excellent and food delicious. You can really rely on waiters recommendations.
