You can reserve a table or cabinet for lunch at the Vuorimiehentie restaurant: We do not charge extra for table reservations, but you must be there exactly when the reservation starts. Only a limited number of table reservations are taken for the day, so that there is plenty of space for our customers who visit our restaurant without a reservation. Each cabinet can accommodate 24 diners, and the fixed price for an hour's lunch reservation per cabinet is €340, including participants' lunches, max 24/cabinet. We have two cabinets.

Operating in accordance with sustainable development in our restaurants

In our daily operations & activities, we strive to burden the environment as little as possible and to minimize all the food waste. We always use ingredients from start to finish: bread left over from lunch is made into croutons, broccoli stalks are used in puree soups, and the left over from vegetables have been given to small farms we know to feed animals. Used cooking oil is collected and passed on so that biofuel can be produced from it. In addition to bio and mixed waste, we also recycle plastics, glass, cardboard and metals separately.

All of our food is prepared from fresh ingredients on site, and taking into account the harvest seasons. In our kitchen, the electrical appliances are not turned on for nothing and the water is not drained except when necessary. All the detergents we use are nature-friendly and our work clothes are organic cotton.
