Every time we visited this place it was almost full. The process to use this restaurant-cafe is: 1) Conquer a table. 2) Go to the counter and queue. 3) Try to know everything you want to order. Order ASAP. 4) Pay. 5) The same person at the cash is who prepare coffee and collect simple things. So wait again. 5)... More

Visited the restaurant on Sunday brunch last weekend. First waited a while at the bardesk to get info about the system and to pay buffet. Finally succeeded with that and tried to find a free ( =clean ) seat from the messy restaurant. Ended up sitting in the sofa with low table. Buffet itself was poor and setup was uninviting.... More

The food is quite OK until you think about the price level. They used to be one of the best places to get salads, club sandwitches etc but now they are just over priced. Terrance is quite OK unless you are more than 2 people...

We went to the sunday brunch, it costs 17€ what is quite a lot for me as a German. But Coffee, Tea, Orange Juice and red juice were included. It was totally worth the money. They serve a lot of different things for breakfast and some lunch stuff. And the quality of the food is good. The weather was nice... More

Food is good as well as the atmosphere. Plates might be heavy for some. Brunch is served on sundays and is very nice. Music is always played giving a lounge like atmosphere.

I was here in summer time with my mum and we had nice lunch. Place was very busy, totally full of people, so we decided to sat outside. There was sunny weather so we didn't care :) Mum ate buffet foods and I had a shrimp salad. Both dishes was good, not amazing... I regret now that I didn't tried... More

Really nice brunch, good selection of warm and cold dish. Very crowded on sundays cause it is really popular place to have brunch, so be early :-)

Fontana is one of my favourite cafes in Turku. The food is great (and the portions are big!), both for lunch and for dinner and if you're in for just a cup of coffee, they have a yummy selection of cakes and other goodies to go with a nice latte or espresso etc. It's a popular cafe, so during lunch...

We had dinner there and although the food was nice it was over priced for what you were getting. The interior is lovely and the staff were quite friendly too. I've heard that it is better for lunch!

Great spot for having lunch - finnish prices but really good food and many oportunities. Might be crowded at buffet-lunch time but you'll find a spot if you're not too many. Free Wifi, a great spot for rainy and winterly days like now.
