3 course dinner for 45€. You can choose starter, main course and dessert. Two terraces and quite small dining room. Upstairs is Michelin restaurant Luomo. More info soon: reijosfood.com

Reviewed 12 August 2013

Excellet food, not too complicated, although having innovative combinations! The list is not very long, but sufficient. I normally do not eat much pork, but this dish, scandinavian with Asian twist was just fantastic! Tasty, delicious! The service good not be better. I highly recommend this place.

“Nice location but too much trying and then failure”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

Lovely location and interior was ok. Service ok but nothing special. I had a starter with scallops and the scallops tasted really good but were super small and all the things coming with them just did not work. Too much vinegar on the cauliflouer, too fatty curry thing. Fish that I had as a main course was totally overcooked and also there the total combination was not very impressive. Seemed they were trying to be fancier than a Bistro should be and totally failed.

“Lovely, youthful Scandinavian restaurant”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

We luckily stopped for dinner in July when the natives have left town so we did not need a reservation which is not true in other months. Their menu is printed on one sheet so changes with season and availability. Had fried fish served on greens with potatoes, mushrooms and a light citrus sauce. Ordered local beer and were presented with assorted local breads in a brown paper bag - great. Overlooks the harbor and market place so a nice location.

“Delicious food, lovely back terrace”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

The food was contemporary and imaginative. They provide each diner their own bag of freshly baked bread which was delicious! (I took the rest of mine home with me). The prices are a bit steep, but you will enjoy the food for sure. If it's a nice day, ask for a spot in the terrace in the back (you won't know its there otherwise).
