Weekend brunch

Good quality brunch in nice surroundings. Normally quite crowded during the brunch. Salads were tasty and there are several dessert choices.

Service was ok though we had to ask the waitress to clear the table before we could sit down. The lunch menu was very limited with only fish on offer thought the quality of cooking was very good. Check the daily menu online before going. Overall it was average value for money.

Nice cafe just before the river walk, popular usually in the weekends. Snacks and cakes with a reasonable selection, a valid alternative for a brunch.

My family and I ate here on our vacation to Turku visiting my younger sister who was studying abroad here. The wine selection was great and the menu had many different options that were all agreeable to my family and I. It was a nice cafe and I would gladly come here again.

Being Turku not such a big place this cafe bar stroke restaurant offer some valid city alternative with good wines glasses and small variety of dishes and cakes. Recommended hamburgers. I'm not sure why someone complaining bed in earlier reviews about the quality of the services but I found the bar tenders (all women) extremely nice polite and unfortunately attractive.

My daughter and I chose this restaurant as our last eating place before my flight back to Gatwick. We wish we hadn't. Lorna had eaten there before on several occasions and thought it very good value - which it was - and good food - which it was. But it was too early for lunch (11 am) and we didn't... More

Central location between Main Market Place and Aura river. We decided to go to a sunday brunch with our friends. Place was crowded and little noisy, but service was still quite fast and friendly. Brunch was kind of a mix of breakfast and salad buffet, with some warm mains and different kind of desserts from cheeses to mudcake. Nice touch... More

Called in as it always seems busy and it looked nice and modern etc, some nice looking cakes in the display but unfortunately the buffet didn't meet expectations. It was only after we paid we realised how cramped the place is, lots of small tables tightly packed in - not good! Buffet itself started OKish, Salad was quite good but... More
