We had three choices - salad, soup and salad, pizza. I had soup and salad. The soup was a creamy sweet potato. Salad had great variety of fresh ingredients. All in all it was a great lunch. We ate at our own pace - it was self service style. The furnishings were very nice and atmosphere was relaxed and quiet... More

We were lucky enough to get an outside table on a lovely sunny evening. The location is brilliant and the food was fine. Nothing exceptional but entirely satisfactory. We might have eaten more courses if the waiting time for everything wasn't so slow. It brings a new meaning to 'slow food'.

Food Just lovely! Somehow so fresh and simple. The shrimp salad was very tasty, pure joy. Drinks Lovely wines, and price ok to quality. Service Maybe could be an inch more friendly, but they were extremely busy and it was hot. Atmosphere Pleasant, my favourite bistro in Finland. Price The salad as main course was 16EUR. Would I recommend? Yes,... More

A cosy little place with cosy atmosphere, great food and wine (try pizzas or lammasvarras). The best of all splendid staff with great attitude. Remember to book a table in advance. Enjoy!

We loved this place, walked 5 minutes along the river to Tinta and was glad we avoided the hotel restaurant. We tried to book a table here earlier in the day but it was booked out, so we tried our luck with an outside table instead, and landed the last table left. We shared the starter mozzarella salad, the beef... More

We visited Turku on a warm summer day and wanted to eat our dinner outside. We chose Tintå, which obiously was the choice of lots of locals and some other tourists. To get an outside table, of which there were about 10, we had to wait some time, but the food and service made it worth while. We had lamb... More

Excellent selection of wines and probably on the best location in Turku! Too bad they have nowadays less wines by glass than they used to.

Tintå is located on beautiful spot alongside river Aura. The bistro is small so table reservation is in place. Food is magnificient. My definate recommendation goes to moroccan lamb skew. And tempurabaked white fish comes after. Tintå has very good selection of wines and the staff knows what to recommend. Also pricing is quite normal so it makes price/quality -ratio... More

We tried out a few restaurants in Turku - Tinta beat them hands down. Staff was a bit brusque at first (Busy time of day so if their stressed, that's natural), but it got better after the first impression. We ate their Moroccan lamb skewers and it was glorious. Considering its Finland, in a good restaurant, the price was also... More
