The food is always very nice, but the service changes from excellent to very snobby and even rude. The portions are pretty and it is a nice place to have lunch or dinner, when the service happens to work.

This was our first visit to this restaurant and we were very satisfied with everything: the food, the service and the ambience. We had small blinis with whitefish roe, smetana and red onion as a starter. The blinis were crispy and perfectly fried. Then poached whitefish with creamy crayfish sauce. Mouthwatering ! Add a couple of glasses of cool white... More

Went for a Friday dinner to the this restaurant. Amazing atmosphere and the place was visually really nice. Ate four dish surprise menu, have to say that the combinations of different flavors and context was best ever. Each dish was served with house recommened wines, excellent!

We had been there earlier and decided to take our daughter and her husband their to celebrate their visit to Turku. My daughter is not so very interested in restaurants but my son in law is. He is from Paris and understands about quality in restaurants and the five course tasting menu was a big success.

Visited for a lunch and the service was great, the food was good but unfortunately it was a bit salty. Not inedible, but still a tad too much salt. If the chef could use a bit less salt then the place would be great!

I was there for a business dinner with 6 other people. Table was properly set, menus delivered, and time to read them over. I ordered the white fish starter, it was simply amazingly good. The presentation was perfect. Next I had the waffle, which I ordered as it seemed to be something different for an evening meal. I was not... More

We have eaten here several times, but recently the food has been far too salty. We mentioned it to the waiter the first time, they offered to make us new portions after we had eaten. Naturally we declined, not needing more food. Next time we didn't bother mentioning anymore since it started to seem like their new style. It has... More

the food here is wonderful, fresh, and prepared perfectly, and the ambience is great. This is an elegant and cozy restaurant with an extensive wine list and very friendly staff.

The first course was very plain -- just a salad with a bit of greens and asparagus - not particularly fresh or special in any way. The main course was pretty nice - pike perch, well prepared. The atmosphere was not so good, with several large groups, one with a screaming baby. I did not have a very good time.

We were having a lunch with couple of customers in restaurant Smör. Three dishes which all were terrific! Nice lay-out and absolutely delicious. The atmospere is also nice, old cellar of an electric company. Service was friendly and our waiter was taking care of us althought lunch hour was already past... If you want good food with a fairly reasonable... More
