On a warm sunny evening, we ate on the terrace alongside the River. The summer menu was short but delightful with choices like gazpacho or herrings to start and fish, veal or duck mains. Portions are perfect and there is great bread and iced water aplenty. The wine list is fine and not eye-watering ly expensive, all are available by... More

Safetiest way to have successful dinner at Turku is to go Mami. Nice atmosphere, good service and perfect food.

Friendly staff, great location and during the summer it's always nice to have a glas of wine by the terrace next to the Aura river. We had excellent meal in Mami restaurant, everything was fresh and very tasty. The location by the Aura river and the old medieval Cathedral is nice, especially in summer when you can sit outside. Friendly... More

This restaurant is recommended by the guide book but we also had a recommendation from a restaurant in Helsinki. Lovely setting by the river in Turku. We went for lunch and liked it so much we returned for dinner. Fortunately people eat dinner early in Finland (don't ask me why it stays light most of the night!!) so it was... More

We were warmly welcomed by a nice lady, and seated outside. We got our aperitifs without problems, and ordered food and wine. The starter came before the wine, and then the sommelier stressed to get the wine to the table and told about like a machine gun - extremely fast and monotone. We finished the starter and were very surprised... More

In my humble opinion, most of the reviews about this place are overrated. I simply do not understand the fuzz around this place in Turku. For me, there is nothing special in Mami. The food I tried had a weird taste (could not decide if it was meat or fish) and seemed just fancy. The service was let's say normal... More

Mami is a small restaurent located on Vähätori square, right next to the river. The food is veryy fresh and local, and they change the menu often according to the season. Some of the waiters also are co-owners of the place (and seem to genuinely love their job), so they have very good reason to keep you happy! The prices... More

Fennel soup was great. Barley spiced with basil, beetroots and Wilhelmiina cheese - was good. Lamb shank 12h with cummin sauce was otherwise good but it was too salty even for my taste, I bet many would have send ot back to kitchen but luckily I like salt quite much. I can do as good my self. Panna cotta with... More

Best lunch in Turku. The staff is great, very good service. Restaurant can get a little crowded sometimes during lunch hours.

Excellent, rich sallads. Everything is fresh and made espcially for you after your order. So there's no buffet table with wilted or soggy lettuce. I lunch frequently at Mami and recommend it warmly.
