Before the theatre

The restaurant is so near by the Pori Theatre. Good food and peacefull athmosphere gives nice start to evening. Restaurant is like a castle with stonen walls and romantic Windows.

I have ordered rain deer and that's by far the best rain deer I have ever eaten. Very tender, perfectly cooked. The sauce was a strong dark sauce ideally matching the meat. The dessert was crème brûlé and very good.

The service was excellent but the food was tasteless (white fish, vegetables, mushroom sauce and potatoe slices). I didn't taste any lime in the lime-white chocolate-sorbet. The interior design is nice, good place for dates. The prices were too high for this kind of performance from the kitchen.

Every once and a while you find an excellent restaurant is a place you don'n expect to find it. Raatihuoneenkellari is one of the hidden restaurant gems. Service is excellent but still relaxed. Food is among the best I have ever eaten. This place should definitively have a tire manufacturer's luminous sphere of plasma or two. I have eaten is... More

This reaturant has reputation of a good fine dining place among locals. But this reputations origins are in the past. Now adays the food is a little old fashioned and needs a little update. For food quality a little over prized. Last time I ate here my food looked very good, but nevertheless it was quite plain and sauce was... More

The restaurant is quite unique in the history of Pori and this is reflected in the beautiful dining room. It was very atmospheric. I appreciated the use of local Finnish ingredients in the excellent menu and could have chosen several of the main courses.The main courses are very well priced and good value for money. I would certainly recommend this... More

The interior is old red brick cellar, and every once in a while it's good to visit some kind of "old" place, not the modern one. The starter drink vodka with buckthorn on ice was great. As a main course I had the reindeer. It's the most expensive one in that menu, but it's really worth it, because it is... More

This restaurant is a gem for many reasons: the historical architecture with the brick walls and vaulted ceilings make the atmosphere unique and warm.

I made a table reservation using phone and it was smooth and quick. We arrived about 15 mins early but everything was ready even the water was already served. At first we took drinks one vodka with buckthorn and one sparkling wine. Then the local fish plate with salmon, small herrings and cooked potatos. As a main course we eat... More
