A quite excellent meal. Lovely setting in a vaulted cellar. Easy online booking. Welcoming staff. The summer menu was almost entirely from local ingredients as was quite varied. Both starters were well made and presented. A shrimp gazpacho was very good and the beef carpaccio was succulent . My main course of deep fried lamb was of particular note. Well... More

Understated and well presented restaurant in the basement of a building along the river in Turku. Great food, excellent wines and the nicest service. Loved the sugar and salt cured salmon. Yum!

They explained that their summer menu was a bit more "tourist oriented" that that their usual choice but everything was very well mastered if not fully original. The... More

This restaurant was amazing for the flavoursome, fresh, healthy yummy food. Both appetizer and main meal were excellent. There were four people in our party and we all thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Great service too.

We had a private room in the basement and the atmosphere was fantastic. They have private cellar rooms suited for 4 to 10 people which have arched ceilings and great atmosphere. The food was high quality and the knowledge of the staff very good

Walk a few steps below street level to a cellar that has been transformed into a comfortable dining space. I had a three course lunch with friends. The food is creative and seasonal, beautifully cooked and innovative in presentation. An explosion of flavours in your mouth. The staff are delightful and personable. l would love to return one day :)

2 times out of 3 Smör has been very good. One time the food was average but still good with normal standards.

In addition to the four courses there were also small courses in between. AS starter we had bread and some soup, main course was deer with some mushrooms, and desert... More

I was happy when my planned lunch and dinner plans at the restaurant met me with sign closed Monday. A few hundred meters walk along the beautiful river Aura I found a Scandinavian fine dining hidden in a vaulted cellar location.Here you will get talented cooked food with ingredients from local producers.The menu varies according to season.Simple but stylish presentations.
