"'Restaurant' in Finnish is..." Finland Restaurant Tip by Anya_D

Finland Restaurants: 63 reviews and 41 photos

'Restaurant' in Finnish is 'Ravintola'. Bear it in mind when you look for a place to eat, or you will have to starve not finding the 'restaurant'. You of course may be smart enough to recognize a restaurant despite of the signs, but it is better to be sure.
But what surprised me was that Finland was not a tea drinking country at all. The tea serving culture is not characteristic here. Who serves tea in a tiny coffee cups??? Or brews it in the pot, pours a cup and takes the pot away? Water deficit in Finland, or what? and only teabags:(

Favorite Dish: As a seafood fan, I was after it all the time in Finland. Shrimps, mussels, octopus, many kinds of fish, especially salmon, it's all really delicios. Finnish speciality is reindeer meat, also worth trying if cooked well.

Directions: A lot of coffee and sandwiches places everywhere, just look out for them! and bear in mind 'ravintola':)
