A lot of people were strolling outside like us. The weather was so warm and we went in this restaurant terrace at the riverside. We had a bottle of wine and goat cheese salad and it was a good combination. The menu did not have a lot of choices. The waiter was very friendly and helpful.

We enjoid Jannen Kattila menu which is changing all the time. Food was ok but not excellent. Price is very cheap, 29€ three course. Staff is very experts on wines and know how it should be served. Location is perfect, outside terrace with river view.

Finland is an extremely expensive country in which to eat out so it is important to be selective.The best option when choosing between the myriad of restaurants in Turku is to choose one with a fixed price menu. We found E Ekblom which offers a 3 course dinner for 29 euros,great value in this city. The menu when we dined... More

We had a lovely family dinner here celebrating a graduation. Everything from the reservation until the end of the dinner went elegantly and smoothly. Service was very good. This restaurant offers a 3-course dinner for a price 29 euros. The menu changes every week. We had feta-tomato salad for starters, whitefish and "new" potatoes in cream for main and chocolate...

I did visit the place a Saturday in February they had an special offer for three dishes, only 30 €. I decided to visit the place and go for the menu, 30 € for three dishes is not much money at all. I was very satisfied with the food, the main dish, a french seafood soup with aioli sauce, was... More

Best in E.Ekblom is probably the service, but not far behind comes the food. The nice part is that you don't have to select from a menu, the chef has already done it for you. There is a very good set 3 course menu, which changes, I think, on a weekly basis. An excellent opportunity to try out something that... More

We took part in the Food&Fun Turku this october. There were a chef from Iceland planning the menu for the restaurant for that event. And it was a success story! Lamb, pork cheek, white fish etc. Wines suited also well with the food. Thank you for the memoriable evening!

Centrally located along the city river, the restaurant is housed in a building which once served as a hotel. Tastefully renovated, dining here is a very pleasant experience. The set 3-course dinner menu, at 29 EURO, is an excellent deal. The set menu changes after a week of service. Ekblom has a selection of fine wines, which tends to be... More

This is a cozy restaurant by the river front. We popped in for drinks and a small bite. Service was very nice and we got some tapas even though the kitchen was already closed. Some of us did not care for any alcohol and even though this is a wine restaurant they fixed us really nice non-alcoholic drinks for no... More

We were a group of 10 persons and all of us chose "Jannen kattilamenu". The actual menu is short, and this weekly changing "kattilamenu" is the thing in this place and really value for money, from the starter to dessert. The service was very good and the table downstears was just perfect for our group. This was my first time... More
