    Coffeehouse: Meeting point

    by SandiMandi Written Aug 8, 2007

    This is my favourite cafe in Kouvola, mostly because of the central location and relaxed ambience. It's a chain cafe, so you can find Coffeehouse in Helsinki, Tampere, Lappeenranta and many other towns as well. The prices are a bit high, which is why I usually only take a cup of tea or coffee... They have cakes, which look delicious, as well as sandwiches and minipizzas there, too. Great place to meet up with friends.

    Fransmanni: Restaurant Fransmanni

    by SandiMandi Written Aug 8, 2007

    Fransmanni is the restaurant in Sokos Hotel Vaakuna in Kouvola. Been there many times and their food never disappoints me. It's a good place for a night out with a bunch of friends, but also offers a nice ambience for a dinner for just the two of you.

    Favorite Dish: Chicken pasta with creamy tomato and herb sauce, marinated tomatos and olives. My favourite dessert is Fransmanni's classic chocolate cake with raspberry sauce and vanilla ice cream.

    Hesburger: Fast Food

    by SandiMandi Updated Aug 8, 2007

    Hesburger is a popular fast food chain in Finland. The food is basically the same as at McDonald's: hamburgers, fries, salads and soft drinks. The interior is colourful, the ambience a bit noisy especially upstairs where there is a playing area for children. Great for a quick lunch or picking up a take-away meal.

    Favorite Dish: Chicken burger with fries

    Amarillo: Tasty Tex-Mex

    by SandiMandi Updated Aug 7, 2007

    Amarillo serves tasty tex-mex food such as tortillas, quesadillas and nachos. There are also burgers, steaks and pasta on the menu. Nice, relaxed ambience and good service. After you're finished your meal you can enjoy a few drinks or even stay there all night, since there's also a night club on the premises.

    Favorite Dish: Chicken pocket (Chicken fillet, grilled goat cheese, marinated red onions, tomatoes and iceberg lettuce wrapped in a tomato tortilla. Served with French fries and chili mayonnaise) and a Cola Vanilla shake for dessert.

    Bar Café Columbia: Nice little café at railway station

    by SandiMandi Written Aug 7, 2007

    Small cafe in front of the railway station in Kouvola. A good place to sit and wait for your bus/train or just enjoy a cup of cappuccino while reading newspapers or watching people outside. They serve all sorts of coffee, sandwiches and sweet pastries and also beer and other alcoholic drinks. Nice service and reasonable prices.

    Neville: Tex-mex

    by Blondiina Written Dec 10, 2004

    This restaurant/bar serves nice tex-mex food in big portions and they also have very wide selections of beer and cider. Don't expect much from the service and it can get a bit noisy if there are a lot of people at the bar drinking, but the food is good so it's definitely a good option if you're feeling hungry.

    Golden Tai: Chinese food

    by Blondiina Written Dec 10, 2004

    This small restaurant offers good Chinese food, especially their lunch buffet for about 7-7,5 € is really good value and their tea is absolutely lovely. The owners don't speak or understand much Finnish, but they are welcoming and smiling. They also provide take away if you ask. Decoration is not as nice as in other ethnic places in Kouvola, but who minds as long as the food is good.

    Bella Pizza Kebab: Pita kebab to die for!

    by Blondiina Written Dec 10, 2004

    I didn't like kebab, before I tried their Pita Kebab. It's absolutely delicious so go there and try for yourself if you're craving some fast food.

    Favorite Dish: Quite obvious isn't it. Pita Kebab of course, but they do make good pizzas too.

    Hua Hin: Thai-food in Kouvola

    by Blondiina Written Dec 10, 2004

    A very good Thai-restaurant with reasonable prices. The atmosphere is really nice too since they have decorated the place beautifully. Its like a little piece of Thailand in the middle of Kouvola. They've also got a small shop there selling silk, spices and chopsticks.

    Favorite Dish: All I've tasted has been good.

    Restaurant Olé: the best steaks

    by Blondiina Written Apr 10, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A great Spanish-style restaurant with the best food I've eaten. The most pleasant decor ("like a real Spanish restaurant") in Kouvola. Quality of the food never lets you down.

    Favorite Dish: Pork Catalonia. A large breaded fillet of pork served with a peach cream sauce, french fries and vegetables. If you don't have a sweeth-toothe like I do, it may not be for you, but if you do, you will love it.

    Aseman Vintti ("The Station Attic"): Aseman Vintti

    by empbu Written May 20, 2003

    You would think the upstairs of a train station would not be a very good place for a restaurant, but this place has been a very popular place in Kouvola for years. I think the restaurant changed owner just recently and I don't know if the place is any different now, but the atmosphere is very nice and everything I've eaten there has been delicious!

    Favorite Dish: Pepper steak, it's delicious! They also make excellent pizzas.

    HuaHin: Excellent Thai restaurant

    by empbu Written May 11, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A lovely Thai restaurant with a very nice staff and beautiful surroundings. They also have a little Thai shop within the restaurant, I think they sell some spices and food ingredients there? They are co-operating with a local travel agency and arrange "food trips" to Thailand every now and then.

    Another one I should try out very soon, I've only stopped by there very quickly.

    Fresh pasta, pizza, sallads...

    I must say I haven't tried this one yet, but I am about to as I have heard so much good about the place! It's also next to my hair-dresser's so maybe I'll stop by there next time I get a new haircut. :)

    by empbu Written Apr 3, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite Dish: I keep trying different things from the menu and I really can't tell what is my favourite dish. Last time when I was there I had Rosso Duo which included a small sirloin steak, a grilled fillet of pork, french fries, grilled tomato and béarnaise sauce. Mmm... I loved it!
