We found this restaurant by pure chance and stepped right in. Furnishing is utterly sparse, perhaps just focusing on the food. Fish is our preference and realised only later that although this restaurant has some fish items on the menu, it is better known for it's meat menu. We ordered fried whitefish, which was an excellent choice. The sauce, however,... More

Nice atmosphere in this "old school" restaurant in the heart of Turku. Good service. Food is good but nothing extra ordinary. Not a fine-dining place. Simple, good food.

Cosy place with reasonable food and reasonable prices. In the restaurant is private rooms for 10 -30 persons. Nice place to arrange meeting or gathering with groups.

I stumbled upon this place while visiting a friend. We were looking for a restaurant that serves reindeer and we were not disappointed as the cream of smoked reindeer they serve was really delicious. The main course, grilled filled of roe deer, was also amazing - the meat was unbelievably tender. The wine that was recommended to us was not... More

Had a nice dinner with friends. Service was good, and food above average. A little bit pricey, but it always is near Christmas. I've told their lunch is good.

They have really tasty and original menu. I recommend smoked raindeer soup. Their stakes are well prepared, good voice of wine available. Place is renovated a while ago with nice taste.

I have nothing good to say about this place. The interior is very dated, service was totally indifferent, and the food had almost no taste at all.

Upgraded but still traditional restaurant with a pleasent twist, clean, modern cellar style with good food. Well done menu with classical and balanced dishes. Also winelist is well designed and includes quality wines globally.
