The view by the sea was beautiful and our meal (fish ala carte list) was very tasty. Service was friendly and relatively fast, and the staff is very honest: I accidentally dropped some money (notes) on floor. The waitress found the notes when she was cleaning the table, so she ran after me and returned the notes.

The location is great with breathtakingly fabulous views over the waters. The old factory building turned to comfortable restaurant is also beautiful and interesting in itself. The service was friendly (but nobody spoke English...) and the food was fine, but at the best just average. A little pricy when you think what you get for your money. I would go... More

I was very pleased with the outstanding beauty of the place. The restaurant is situated on the sea shore and has a huge terrace, and a boat dock in the summer. The service is very friendly and i liked the smiling waitress, the atmosphere and ofcourse the food. As i am a vegetarian I had an amazing chantarelle soup and... More

Restaurant is in very nice location, just next to the sea. You can even come with your own boat! Service was excellent and friendly and food was good. Dishes have enough to eat for bigger men also! Remember to try the Ukko beer, it has some history and tradition.

One of our friends recommended Restaurant Keisarinsatama which is located in beautiful area next to see. We went there on sunny day in July. Terrace with sea view was fully booked and that’s why we went inside to have lunch. We selected Zar's Salmon and Brewerie's Pepper Steak which were really delicious. Service was also good. It was worth of... More

The restaurant is located at the quiet neighborhood aprox. 3km out of the city center. In summertime it's really beatiful place alongside water. They also have own small dock (if you have possibility to use boat). Building itself is big old brewery (they still serve the same beer). It's not the cheapest place, but service is good and they serve... More

I have been twice in summer and eaten outside on the terrace overlooking the water. It is a super location. Converted mill building with pleasnat atmosphere. Worth the short drive from Kotka. Food quite reasonable.
