Stopped here while staying in Kalajoki. Fish weren't playing, so it took a lot of bait and regular fishing rod to catch anything. But then we got a 2kg salmon, which they smoked on site. My rating would be higher, but I thought the smoking...More

Fishing can never be guanteed cacth as one hopefully might realise and as an activity requires also a certain level of patience. Sometimes actually you might not catch at all. Kinda the "nature" of fishing. In this case and when in a hurry customers are...More

Very cute place and fresh fish. There is a possibility to catch your own fish as well. The road there is "under construction" but don't lose hope, it is there!

Since fish comes from the pond by the restaurant and is prepared there right after catching, it's truly fresh and tasty. Menu has a lot variety for lighter and healthier options too, which is a nice change. The building, garden and the whole set up...More
