“Nice youthful restaurant at the riverside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2011

We went here to have lunch with friends, some of us had the hamburger buffet but they were not so satisfied with their choice. I had a pizza which was really good and the hamburger plates from the menu were also tasty.

This is a good place for dining or drinking with friends but I think also families with children could find Rantakerttu pleasant.

What I miss is outdoor seating, as the restaurant is situated right at the riverside it would be nice to sit outside.

Making your orders at the desk was a bit odd. But it worked well.

“A very welcome new restaurant close to guest harbour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2011

The family business running the notorious Pippurimylly and a couple of other restaurants has recently opened RantaKerttu. The restaurant operates in the former premises of a less fortunate "upscale" restaurant, which resided there many years and went through several phases before they finally understood it is best to close it down.

RantaKerttu has taken a good start. It is a mid-priced, easy going restaurant with a versatile menu. The location is great especially in summer, as the Turku guest harbour and the pedestrian and cyclist paths along the river Aura add to the potential clientele. But there are a lot of residential buildings and offices nearby, too. There are no outside tables, at least yet.

At least during the summer, during the daytime between 11 and 15, they only have a buffet lunch consisting of a selection of starters and three varieties warm dishes. After 15 they have two menus, one for the street level and another for the bar/restaurant downstairs. The menus are versatile and should meet the tastes of most of the potential visitors.

Since its opening in later part of June, I have already visited this restaurant a few times both for casual business lunches with associates and clients, and for an early dinner with my family. All these visits show consistency in good quality of both content and process. The service is efficient and friendly, with a very positive and honest attitude in making the customer feel at home.

I can only hope that this restaurant will be a success for many years to come. The beginning looks really good.
