I visited Pippurimylly (Pepper Mill in English) after many years on a Wed evening in July 2016. There was plenty of vacant tables and the service was fast and nice. I ordered the House Pepper Steak (talon pippuripihvi in Finnish) with small glass of "house red wine". There is a salad bar included in the meal. It was a medium-good... More

This restaurant is the tradition in Turku. It's off the beaten track and you don't find it accidentally. It is close to Sporting park and Samppalinna up in a southern banks of the river. You can walk or take car ride easily there. The restaurant is small and hidden on the second floor of the building. We visited here in... More

We had made a reservation for the table as the restaurant has always been fully boked when earlier visiting. The menu has plenty of mouth watering alternatives and different sizes of beef for meat-lovers. However they also serve fish and vegetarian and you may have most meals glutenfree if need be. All of our family once again enjoyed the delicacies... More

We have been eating here for 25 years and always come back. The friendly staff combined with classic and tasty food is something that we so far have not got bored with. They also serve very nice sit-down lunch during week-days. My favorite is a dish called Wienervalssi - a veal steak stuffed with cheese combined with blue cheese potato... More

Brought here by someone who had lived in Turku and heard so much about the restaurant. It is an old restaurant in retro deco, some posters on the wall might have been there for years! The atmosphere is good tho. The dinner included a salad buffet with fresh ingredients, and the steak was cooked to perfection. Highly recommend the five... More

Coming from Helsinki, I happened upon this place after the Paavo Nurmi marathon because it was close to where I parked. I was very happy with this find! The staff is very professional and friendly, and clearly knows some of the regulars well. A stylish and interesting artsy decor combined with well prepared food made the visit a good experience....

It is always nice to go to Pippurimylly. Calm place, great food. Restaurant is old and has seen many decades and menu has formed in long time.

The restaurant has been at the same place since 1974. The food is tasty home made food families in Finland have eaten years. It is a family place to take your mom or whole family to enjoy it. Have been there couple of over times in two years and the quality is constant and atmosphere is homely.

These guys can definitely flip a steak, but that's where it ends... You can be happy if you get a couple of steamed carrots in your place in addition to the steak and fries/other potato options. Price is still fairly high so one would expect a bit more, if you're a stranger to this place. This is however how it... More
