Support your local (restaurant). Or almost local in this case, being a bit over 10 minutes drive. Restaurant is at Hotel Rantapuisto which feels like a dive into 70s/80s, in a good way. Location is also beautiful, bit of forest and a sea view. On a Monday evening, there few larger groups and few separate couples and diners alone, not too busy.
Our waitress was working for the first day, so she kept apologizing all the little mistakes she was making. No harm done there, that was very understandable. Of course the drinks could have been brought a bit faster, first day or not.
Furu’s menu had five different starters, same amount of main (plus burgers and sandwiches) and couple of desserts to choose from. For lazy ones like me, the have put menu Furu, with a starter, main and dessert. Main can be chosen from meat (pepper steak) or fish (catch of the day).
Smoked roach mousse with Furu’s cracker as a starter was a promising beginning for the meal. Afterwards thinking, catch of the day might have been better choice for the main than mediocre steak. The quality of the meat was not that great. Pepper sauce saved a lot and fried kale went perfectly there. Side carrots were left almost raw, I wonder if that was really intended. Pannacotta at the end was pretty good.
The menu sets you back 54€. Interestingly, if you choose the fish and order all the dishes separately, you save few euros. On the other hand, with the meat options the menu saves you couple of euros.
