Merisali offers a buffet breakfast at a very competitive price. Our accommodation did not include breakfast and as we stayed in Naantali only for one night, it did not make sense to buy everything needed from a grocery store. The breakfast includes coffee/tea, juice, breads with meat cuts and cheese, yoghurt, cerials, boiled eggs etc. so pretty much everything you... More

There are many places with a harbor view, their prices and food offers are similar; you go for the view, don't expect gourmet standards. Merisali is the only one having an evening buffet for ~€20. Its cold buffet was fresh and good, its presentation canteen like. With exception of the tender stewed beef, the warm food was from low average... More

Being a vegetarian I ate just a salad and as a main course they serve french fries for vegetarians, which is a shame. There were 10 fish dishes but why not a warm vegetarian meal? Paying 2.60€ in a university cafe I always eat a wonderful vegetarian meal and paying 15€ for a french fries and broccoli is disappointing. FYI,... More

15 euros for lunch is pricey, but it is almost the cheapest at this Naantali harbour area. The starters table has wide range of fish available, and the salads are also tasty and each dish has its own "extra something" flavour. However, the main courses buffet is a big disappointment. The food there is too safe for this price range... More

No, no, no! Food is same quality as on a FI-SE ferry (means below average) but the way to queue is horrible and non working. Nice terrace...if you smoke...a lot! All tables for smokers outside.

An excellent and relatively cheap (for Naantali) restaurant which offers a little bit of everything for everyone. The buffet is really good, especially the cold dishes such as salmon. The warm dishes were not quite as good; the vegetables and fries seemed like they have come from the freezer, and vividly reminded me of school meals. However the fish and... More

I've lived in Naantali all my life and visited this restaurant often. Their menu has stayed the same and so has the decor. If you are a vegetarian, the lunch is not for you. Lunch doesn't include coffee in it. The milk I drank was unfortunately warm.. But still, I like the place. The service is nice, they even served... More
