In a cultural monument, once built as hunting estate, now operating a high-end hotel and restaurant at the proximity of golf course, offers world-class dining experience in really nice countryside setting.

All courses were delicious, especially starter, beef was exactly medium and the dessert was interesting mix of muesli and fruits. Combined wines were excellent. The waitress was friendly and she had a nice service attitude and she also presented all foods.... More

Spent a weekend at the hotel and hade two dinners. Both times the food was just superb and the service was very nice and kids friendly. The location is also nice. If you are a tradional buffet eater, go somewhere else. We enjoyed big time and recommed this restaurant.

It took us a long time to first find out there is no buffet, as would be typical at golf course restaurants. None was to be found and it took over 5 minutes to get the attention of any of the staff. "We don't have any buffet, the Menu is over there" was the way to help us forward. We... More

A special campaign offer (including lodging and dinner) attracted us to this place. The restaurant was a pleasant experience with good service, tasty food and nice castle environment. I warmly recommend this place.

I had once again dinner at Vanajanlinna. Service minded staff and quality regarding the food is always excellent. Menu itself is not very wide, but very tasty. Atmosphere at Vanajanlinna reminds from old elegant castles.

Nice setting, decent dinner but service level were very mixed between senior staff and younger professionals (the latter being the ones who need improvement). The food was displayed nicely, no major disappointments, but long delays between appetizers and starters, we ran out of bread twice (due to the fact that there was no food available) and had to ask for...
