    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We had ice cream portions here and they were yummy! Very nice waitress served us. She was most helpful and we got some useful information about Porvoo from her. The restaurant is in the 19th century building.

    Wanha Laamanni: Good food in old surroundings

    by nomadig Written Mar 3, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Old charm in Wanha Laamanni

    Wanha Laamanni is a restaurant in historic settings in the old town of Porvoo. Located near the cathedral on the hill, the restaurant is carefully renovated in an old bourgeous home dating back from 1790.

    The menu is a fusion between Finnish and French cuisines. The food is a bit pricey, but well worth every penny. The wine list is extensive and it contains some really expensive wines, too. Half of the wines are server by glass, too. The restaurant sells also Cuban cigards.

    The staff is courteous and the service is swift enough.

    Timbaali: Escargots

    by nomadig Written Feb 28, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Restaurant Timbaali

    Restaurant Timbaali is well known for its escargots. They used to have their own snails, but nowadays these delicacies are imported.

    The menu had six different escargot appetiser and one main course had also these creatures. If you are not fond of them, you can have "normal" food, too.

    The food tastes very good, with or without escargots, and the wine list is extensive. The restaurant itself is built in an old wooden house and it has sort of romantic feeling all over the place.

    Café Helmi: Charming Old Café

    by nomadig Written Feb 28, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Caf�� Helmi

    Café Helmi is an intimate and cozy café in middle of old town of Porvoo. The place makes you return back to the times when horses roamed on the streets. The old town provides a great backdrop for this illusion.

    Otherwise, the café is quite an ordinary coffeehouse. The selection of cakes and other sweet things is ok and the prices are not bad, especially compared to cafés in Helsinki.

    Wanha Laamanni: Quality food,unique place - great view !

    by ZenLady34 Updated Dec 14, 2004

    Wanha Laamanni

    This is really unique restaurant.
    The food they do is mixed (Mediterranean, French, Finnish food and some Eastern influence...). It is quite expensive but highly appreciated. This restaurant was chosen among the best restaurants in Finland

    Normally, at summer time I enjoy a cider on their terrace, which has a beautiful view down to the river Porvoo (as the restaurant is situated up on a hill). Don't miss the view! At winter you'll have to enjoy your dinner inside tho'.

    Favorite Dish: I have eaten a fish dish there and it was delicious!

    Porvoon Paahtimo at right with the boat terrace!
    1 more image

    Porvoon Paahtimo is located by the river and next to the bridge. You can not miss the red tile, four floor storehouse when entering to Porvoo from Helsinki.

    Summer or winter this bar&cafe has a special athmosphere! It is not a typical Finnish style cafe but it is worth a visit if you fancy a cappuccino, cafe latte, beer or a cider.

    Favorite Dish: At winter my favorite drink is a hot chocolate with 2cl mint liqueur. It is so nice to get out of the cold weather and darkness into a this Warm, cosy, red tile bar&cafe!

    At summer time (may - august) my choise is a cider on the terrace or on their "terrace boat" .

    They do not serve food... sandwiches but no food.

    If you will go down to the river on the south side there are few boat restaurants that serve typical Finnish food and beer, again, crowded during the summer tourist season but family friendly and not too expensive.
