The place is cozy (despite the meaningless references to Italy on the walls, being the food not particularly Italian) and it has a good selection of food and beverages. I found the food to be OK, yet the ratio quantity-quality was barely ok, especially given the price. However, I find it hard to believe that it's possible to find anything... More

Roasted reindeer meat was excellent ; tender, juicy, fresh taste. Also tried a dessert made of cloudberry, and a coffee with a certain almond liquor, most impressive. Spacious nice restaurant , excellent service and staff.

I have visited Brahen Kellari now 2 times in a few months. The food has been excellent (starter main, dessert). Prices are not the cheapest but on a good level for the superb food. The place itself is also cousy, an old cellar but renewed with class. I recommend!

The place looks not at all like what it actually is from the outside. Good food - good service... I would clearly recommend the place for anyone around.

The steak was precisely the way I wanted it. Side dishes were also tasteful as was the wine. The cellar adds to the atmosphere and makes the evening a succes. All in all a place to return to.....and I did...

Great restaurant in the very centre of Turku. Nice friendly service and quiet atmosphere. And the best meal (fish) I have had in a long time! I strongly recommend.

We had family dinner at 5 pm on a Saturday night. The restaurant was completely empty when we entered, but it was a warm summer afternoon (=people prefer outdoors), so probably the place gets busier come Winter. We were very satisfied with our food. Escargot as a starter were delicious, my & daughter's salmon and my husbands steak were excellent.... More

This Restaurant is downstairs in Cellar Looking Rooms. The Reindeer was outstanding as was the Wine. Highly recommend it. Can't give any idea on price as someone else picked up the tab but I would certainly visit again.

This place used to be famous for its game such as beaver but its a long long time ago. We were told that now again some game dishes were served so we gave it a try. Once upon a time this place was rather stuffy now its puritanical, white painted ventilation and heating pipes on the ceiling, blank Ikea type... More
