Good finnish lunch in a beautiful location

The location of the restaurant is just amazing. The food is very good, with quite good selection. The only bad thing is that coffe is not included in the price. Price is on the average. You definitely should pay a visit.

We liked this place because of its sea interior with models of old ships and sea flags . Roof looks like wooden boat bottom . Food was good and very quickly - it no needs to expect waiters (buffet) - go and take everything by yourself. And also we liked live music - 60-70-80-ss)) awesome!!

This place need the sun, terrace is great and close to sea. Best location in the harbour. So far so good. But the buffet food, what they serve is not in the same level. Buffet was quite booring and tastless. Service was ok.

This is place where I don't step in as it is dirty, bad service, unfriendly personnel, too much drunken people. I would never ever take my guests even close to this place. Naantalin City should kick this over far away from all of the properties and raise the level in so gorgeous place as Naantalin Rana is.

Good buffet, especially starter fish board. Nice terrace and view to the harbor of Naantali. Close to Moominworld's gate. Sea side style restaurant. A bit expensive but more reasonable priced than other restaurants near by.

If you are hungey and are looking for fish, then Merisali serves a great fresh food buffet. It has plenty variety and the cold dishes are excellent (warm food little bit too industrial). Merisali also serves pizzas, but those are medicore.

The restaurant is a legend but it doesn't mean that the food selection shouldn't develop over the time... We go there for a breakfast for a couple of times every summer (maybe 10+ years) and the selection is always the same. Must say though that salted fish is always very good.

Pottering about in Naantali, admiring the pretty wooden houses and enjoying the views may give you an appetite, in which case Merisali makes a good stop. It's a beautiful wooden building with a waterside terrace and an interesting indoor restaurant. Their buffet lunch costs €14.50, is available from 11am to 4pm ( at least it was on a Saturday in...

Thsi wooden building with huge terrace is probably the best place just to sit down enjoy the view, watch the boats going around, hear the water splashing all wooden bridges. On weekends they have graet live music and very decent buffe on good value. Afteroons they also serve nice pizzas. Place is simple but cosy - outdoor sitting is the... More

I agree with a previous contributor that the advertised photo is incorrect and should be changed as it does not advertise the natural appeal of the sea view to the President's Residence.... My visit was specifically for the buffet lunch. I have enjoyed this on previous occasions and it has always provided a large selection of fresh sea food, salads,... More
