This restaurant is at venue where all the happening at Turku seem to happen. There are also few good restaurants and wine restaurants at this street. Smör is a likable, dusky cellar restaurant. Nothing mind blowing or experimental but they have good ingredients with good flavors. We all took a 3 course meal and with the help of the staff... More

Took some business friends there and all of us were impressed. The menu includes some "experimental sounding" dishes that work very well. Service is very good. A solid overall performance. The main room has poor acoustics, so for more intimate or important meetings book one of the smaller rooms.

The staff was very professional. The food was well prepared and included quality incredients. I suggest taking one of the menus (3, 4, 5 courses) to sample the food.

Restaurant Smör ('Butter') has the 'Chaine des Rotisseurs' sign with reason. The standard of atmosphere, food, wines and service are on a high standard. Recommend the 3-6 course surprise Menu with selected wines. Thank You.

I went there with my fiancee on Friday afternoon. The kitchen had just opened and there were few tables including ours. We both ordered starters and the same main dish. The sparkling wines, we found a bit overepriced, therefore sticked to only a glass of wine each. Both starters were very nice. I had a meet based one and my... More

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
