Great atmosphere and quality food. Top 3 restaurants in Pori. Tyrni drink is there speciality. Good place to take your family or a larger group. Location is close to the river and theatre. Good and friendly service

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

My wife and I have been going to this restaurant for 20 years. The food is never great, salty, but eatable. We were there three times this month and the food was so salty I could not eat it. And the service could not be worse. They are beyond rude, downright nasty. Horrible experience. CK

This restaurant is a gem for many reasons: the historical architecture with the brick walls and vaulted ceilings make the atmosphere unique and warm. The staff is polite and the food...the food is beyond words: the Fillet of beef à la maison with Finnish blue cheese and Madeira sauce was simply perfect as was the Meringue with rasberry and blueberry...

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

This cellar restaurant is close to the river and on the evening we dined there we were the only customers. We were served by a trainee waitress, so the service was a bit shaky, but she didn't drop anything and we all got the right food. The food was ok to good, though I'd not rave about it. Certainly a...

Visited a casual fine dine restaurant in the city of Pori (West Coast of finland). The city was founded by a Swedish Duke of finland in 1558, named Johann. He was the son of King Gustavus Vasa of Sweden. The Raati Huone kellari Restaurant, translated the City council cellar, is located in the same building as the city hall. Nice... More

Food was good but prices perhaps a bit steep. The place was in the basement of the City Hall and it had beautiful brick vaults. Really nice athmosphere.

I just used to love this restaurant. I am a fan of cellar restaurants and especially on Christmas time. I took some customers here and we were disappointed because the food was not it should be and what used to be years ago. I had a soup (mustajuurikeitto = blackrootsoup) and it was too creamy with just a very mild... More

we have visited this restaurant during the last two jazz festivals. The location of the restaurant is excellent within walking distance from the river and the main jazz happenings. BUT the service is far from excellent. Both our visits were nearly ruined even though the reservation was made about one month in advance. At the first time the restaurant was... More
