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!

Most of us had the chef's surprise menu and liked it. A good candidate for a business dinner in town. Nice location and views. Can recommend.

I enjoyed some delicious local produce at this restaurant with colleagues. The restaurant is in a good central location and although it was dark and rainy when I visited, I can imagine that it is wonderful to eat outside in the summer. My meal was full of delicious flavours and very well presented. The menu is small but has a... More
