“Excellent again!”
Reviewed 12 August 2012

Valtionhotelli is back to very good quality/price.We knew it from several visits in the previous years , and after a time of uncertainity we think that Valtionhotelli offers again one of the best lunch buffets of the region at a very reasonable price.

“Lovely fresh food from local incredients”
Reviewed 29 July 2011

We tried here the a la carte menu. They would have offered also buffet food but we wanted more special options to choose from. The menu contained lots of fresh seasonal local incredients like fresh fish from the local fishermans, mushrooms and vegetables. We chose creamy mushroom soup for startes and really loved it. One of the best mushroom soups we have ever tasted. For the main course my spouse tried fish of the day with mushroom risotto and vegetables and I chose a steak. Both servings looked and tasted good. We really recommend to try this restaurant. Good quality finnish food in beautiful surroundings.

The restaurant is open only for summertimes.

“Surprisingly good”
Reviewed 18 July 2010

The menu was a mix of traditional and modern cuisine, ingredients were excellent and fresh, fish of the day (perch) was exceptionally good. Try also the hamburger beef made of eastern Finncattle. In the atmosphere one could feel the 165 year history of the place. Don´t expect too much of the service, which is friendly and straigthforward but not overwhelming.
