Nice to be back in Turku and see Pinella has retained all it's charm and services since my last business trip. New Chef has arrived and implemented a new lunch concept which is very good value as you can have 2 courses for 17€ or 3 for 24€ with coffee included, while retaining high food & service standards. Also great... More

Its a very nice and beautiful restaurant, but its very expensive and the portions are small. So if you wanna eat much and be stuffed, don't go there, otherwise enjoy your evening. Waitresses are friendly.

This restaurant is one of the oldest in Turku located at the riverbank of river Aura next to the cathedral. You can drop by for a refreshing drink at the terrace or enjoy a delicious meal. The Wine cellar in this restaurant is also well equipped. The food is rather pricy but you will not get disappointed. The service is... More

The food tasted good, flavors were top notch but the price was too high for this "not so special 3-course-meal". Friendly staff and most beatiful venue.

Food is pretty breathtaking along with the pricing. No wine, no bread, minimal lunch for 3 over $100 US. But the salmon in its lemon-thyme sauce was superb. Good chanterelle risotto. Expect to pay even for water. Nice view right on the river walk with outside tables.

Pinella's drink bar is the only real drink bar in Turku, but the downside is that it's more pricey too. The location is excellent, and they have a big terrace facing the river. The drink list is interesting and good.

I have visited this restaurant few times for a'la carte, lunch and Christmas buffet. The buffet was excellent, a'la carte disappointing and lunch ok. Maybe the quality of food depends who is on duty in kitchen. Service upstairs in the cocktail bar is very good and professional!
