Food and wine

We always use fresh seasonal ingredients that are cooked over open fire as long as possible. One could say that the heart of our kitchen is fire. And firewood.

All portions at Kakolanruusu are to share. This way the whole table participates in the dining experience. Sociable, unformal and fun!

With cocktails, we offer a variety of small snacks served at the bar. If you prefer dining with time, Kakola’s Feast is for you. And if you want to find off the menu options, we serve each day a different dish of the day.

Our wine list has been carefully chosen to match with all our dishes and to give your palate something new and thrilling. In addition to our wine list, we have a special cellar collection where you can find unique wines. The question is, would you like to have wine au naturel or do you prefer classics?

Welcome to spend an unforgettable evening behind bars!
