This little bistro keeps the quality of the food continually at firmly good level. Food is beautiful and fresh, service delightful and friendly. The menu is short yet easy to choose from. Easy access, leave your car at Erottaja parking hall, you won't find a spot there. Only 500m walk from Stockman's. Great value for money! Fits for families as... More

We went there to have for lunch and short appointment. The restaurant was quite busy and the waiter did not come to the table without asking. After some calls he came and the food was in the table pretty soon. Interieur needs a small uplift, the general look was a bit tired. Three different lunch dishes at the price of... More

The restaurant is quite small approx 50 seats, a small waiting bar at the entrance and a few steps down the dining area. Also some terrasse tables in summertime by the street. The food is modern and very good tasting, personnel is lovely and speak at least English, Swedish and Finnish. Quite a few wines served by glasses, not very... More

Situated a short distance from the centre of the city, this restaurant is a little off the beaten track and is unlikely to be frequented by tourists. All for the best. The atmosphere suggests a local eatery - which indeed it is - and the menu offers a good choice of simple food. Even in a local neighbourhood restaurant the... More

My wife and I shared the terrific Tomato soup, then each had a salad. The portions were large, the favors excellent. Pleasant lunch, very good service.

The food and drink was good. A noisy restaurant and bar environment and a little pricey, but still good. I had the house wine which was light and refreshing with the scallop appetizer.

I've been to Maxill several times. However, it's been a while since last time. Some people have said that their glory days are over but people still come here for afterwork and I used to come here every now and day on Vappu as well. We had been traveling the whole day from the UAE so we just needed something... More

I have been many times at Maxill and I really enjoy the food and the atmosphere there. The menu is simple with high quality. The wines are also well selected. The blinis are in my opinion the best, especially with an ice cold vodka.

Thank Jep P
