Celebrating our daughter's birthday we decided to introduce her to this restaurant, which has been in Turku for decades. So the insides look a bit outdated, but the food is The Thing. This is a fish restaurant, so bear that in mind. Starters on the buffet were included, so that saved a bit. There was plenty of choises on starter... More

Me and my family were driving throughout Turku for almost an hour to find a restaurant, where we can taste delicious finnish salmon soup - lohikeitto. At last, we luckily came to Kaskenahde. When I ask about lohikeitto, the waitress seemed to be insulted: "Sure, we have it!" After a magnificent tasted soup we asked for the baltic herring and... More

This place is really one of my favourites in Turku. The interior is nicely retro - from the seventies - and the seafood is delicious. Not cheap, but quality meets price. It's worth climbing the hill! What more is there to say?

Slightly away from the trendy tourist areas along the river, this unpretentious restaurant is charmingly old fashioned. The fish is unbelievably good. The starter with various pickled and smoked fish is a real treat. There were three of us and we each had a different fish dish as our main course. We were each impressed with the freshness and taste... More

If you want to have good fish and tasty à la carte food, this is the place. The owner is also the chef and the restaurant is run by him and his wife. Very good food and absolutely fresh fish, as he works directly with local fishermen and comes almost on a daily basis to the Market Square for the... More

I have somehow forgotten the place, but when planning a lunch with a business friend, I remembered Kaskenahde. The traditional quality of everything is still there. We had this season's specialities: russian pancakes with whitefish roe as starters and burbot cooked in butter & cream for mains. Accompanied by a glass of Chablis this made a simple yet high quality... More

...this is one of the best restaurants in Turku! This restaurant is very small and you have to climb up to the hilla to get there, but their fishmeals are just delicious!

This is one of the classics at Turku and clearly worth a visit. Kaskenahde is a traditional and old fashioned fish restaurant at Kaskenmäki hill, just a few hundred meters to the south of Auransilta bridge. I can recommend this restaurant for those wishing to have a traditional fish dish in a traditional restaurant. They serve mostly local fish (mainly... More
