They have terrace outside. Inside is kind of a sport bar and quite large. Great selection of beers and ciders, but unfortunately service was really slow. There weren't that many customers, but when someone asks this and other one that, it took too much time. When the place is crowded, that might be a problem.

Somedays this place is a cheap place to get drunk (with a membership card etc.).Clientel mostly consists of young students.One of the more "popular" places in Lappeenranta, but it could clean itself up a bit.

Tried out this new Mexican place. Food is quite good, service is very friendly and atmosphere is ok. The problem here is the waiting time. We went there on Sunday, a day not much is on in Lappeenranta. We found maybe 10 other guest and three servers. But guess what. It took so long! Everything! Till we got the drinks, maybe 20 minutes. Then half an hour for the food and finally another 20 minutes till we could pay. This is a shame, as the food is fair, good quality and generous servings. So, if you are not in a hurry, it's fine, otherwise you better look for alternatives.
