Vesilinna is the place for you to enjoy both the magnificient views of the city and good food. We had lunch which was very good and very good value for the price. There was salad buffet and a soup to start with and the main course was served to you. It was tasty and had the season's specialities in it.... More

The atmosphere and view used to make it a place to go to lunch for the 1st of May celebration in Jyväskylä. The quality of the restaurant has unfortunately gone down during recent years. For the price you would expect more. Not too many choices and the two main courses were both disappointing: otherwise tasty hamburgers were really dry and... More

The view is excellent and the restaurant is worth a visit just for that. My starter dish was good but the steak really dry - could have cooked better myself. Food is not worth the money but if you have some extra cash to throw around you might find this an OK place to visit just for the view.

Lovely food in the nice atmosphere. I don't know who is the chef but food was just tasty. I ate shellfish for lunch, excellent. My friends took pasta and soup, they were also tasty. Nice atmosphere and you can see all over the Jyväskylä. Don't forget to climb up to the Observation Tower after your meal.

As a couple we enjoyed exclusive use of the restaurant on a quiet Monday night. I don't know why it is not more popular as it was a lovely restaurant with beautiful views and good food. Steak was excellent. To add to the evening you can go up to the observation level and enjoy far reaching views if the town... More

View from restaurant terrace is awesome and that makes place worth a visit. However - there are some issues. Personnel seems quite fresh. It took quite a long time to get drinks for four people ordered (as complex as wine, beer and cider). First of all - they didn't know which labels they had, neither than where those were located....

Its about the whole package. 4 stars because you get a great view over the city and lake. Steak was overcooked by a large margin but still tasted good in the end (fortunately) and the sides were great. I guess I felt forgiving that day. Service: Slow, but I've come to realize this is how Finnish restaurants operate. Worth an... More

View from tis restaurant is great over the Jyväskylä city but this time I was disappointed that restaurant has decided to offer only "Christmas buffee" but no a´la carte. I took the most important customers for dinner but this surprise was not welcomed. They even not mentioned that in their web sites. Starter buffee quality was only barely average. I... More
