The history of Restaurant Strampen began in 1868 when confectioner Sebastian Coray was granted permission to build a pavilion in the park surrounding the Court of Appeal. Coray commissioned architect C.A. Setterberg to design the summer pavilion. His earlier work included two local landmarks, the Vaasa main Lutheran Church and the Vaasa Orthodox Church. The construction of the summer restaurant lasted for two years, 1868-1869. Coray paid a yearly fee of 100 marks for the lease of the land. The money was used to maintain the grounds of the park. In 1876 restaurateur Heinrich Ernst bought the pavilion and maintained the business for years. The original building had eight corners. In the 1930s the building was modified to its present footprint. In 1980 the terrace was added. Since then it has remained the largest and sunniest terrace in town. In the winter of 1997-1998 the interior was restored and renovated back to its original state. In addition to the outdoor terrace and fine restaurant, there is dancing, entertainment and other special events from business meetings to summer weddings and christmaspartys. The season starts in mid-spring and lasts until christmas. With excellent food and courteous service, we hope that our guests will enjoy their meal and visit us again.
