Relatively quick dinner early Saturday evening, prior returning home by train from the city of Turku. Some of the other places nearby were completely sold out but restaurant Smör was able to accomodate our party of four without any reservation. Bottle of champagne to share while choosing the first and second course. Artichocke soup was good, creamy and tasteful to... More

Artichoke soup, tar, (...), Smör emphasizes local Finnish food and products. Recommended for romantic dinner given its situation in a warm cosy cave.

Fine dining at it's very best. Fantastic flavours, but still enough for filling an empty stomach. Selected a three course menu with recommended wines which matched the flavours to perfection. The service was excellent as well. A restaurant I will remember for a long long time for all the right reasons!

The food was a delight. The wines are perfectly chosen for each meal (especially the chef's menus). The interior design is nice. Perhaps a bit overpriced though, even if the restaurant classifies itself as 'fine dining'. Worth your time.

I needed to have dinner early, so the restaurant was half empty when I came in. The service was friendly and efficient. The food (four course surprise menu which included also three additional amuses) was quite good. My personal favorite was the dessert, where the main ingredient was parsnip. I have to admit that this was the first time ever... More

The is a cellar restaurant by the river Aura. Views are pretty nonexistent and the acoustics makes for a challenging environment for conversation. Yet, the food is very good and the service friendly and smooth.

We had a great dinner amongst two couples. We decided to go for the five course menu after a pondering what to eat over a glass of rosé champagne. We also decided to trust the wine recommendations for each dish. We received a surprise starter from the chef before our first course. The gazpacho with celery sorbet must be one... More

The restaurant is located by the river bank in Turku. Very easygoing and professional staff. Short menu which means fresh and simple tastes. very wide wine list.

The aptly named Smör (Swedish for butter) was a very pleasurable experience for my wife and me for a three course lunch. The restaurant has a clean, fresh feel to it, with a touch of retro. We had a three course lunch menu. The starter was a very tasty slow cooked pork with a radish mayo and spring onions. For... More
