But when yopu find it, it´s worth it.
Food was absolutely great. They have local food on their menu. And I loved the attitude of the staff. A nice place to have a real taste of Finnish cuisine.

A group of 8 had new years dinner here. The service was very friendly and fun but a little slow and disorganised which is to be expected on a day like that. The portions were generous and reasonably priced, as was the wine. The food was tasty, meat cooked perfectly according to our wishes. The chantarelle risotto-side dish however was a disappointment, not creamy as it should be but rather regular rice with chantarelles, not bad but not good either. Buckthorn parfait was wonderful, the apple pie however was more a biscuit with warm apple on, which was also disappointing compared to it's 9 euro pricetag. Despite the few misunderstandings the staff was professional, and when there was a small accident at the table behind ours, the staff handled the situation very gracefully even if they were being treated quite rudely by the other customers. We had a pleasant experience.

Situated a little bit off the city center. Very atmospherict cellar restaurant with many medievally interiored small compartments. We were warmly welcomed and overall service was very good. All our requests and wishes were paid attention.

Creamy black trumpet mushroom soup and country-style bread as a starter was delicious. I had mildly braised reindeer shank with blue cheese potatoes as a main course. The meat was very tender and the sauce was good.

My wife had Steak black and white á la Baron with garlic potatoes and son traditional meat balls, mashed potatoes and roasted root vegetables. Both liked their dishes. The steaks donenesslevel was perfect.

Waiters wine recommendation outside the list was perfect.

The dinner was a bit pricey. We've had finer dinings with same price. Anyway overall rate is very good.

This place used to be a dodgy pub below the street level but certainly not anymore! Place had been re-designed to a proper restaurant with a complete set of different dishes in the menu. First of all, food that was served to us was absolutely great and wine was quality stuff as well. But the service. You rarely find as great service in Finland, as you did here. So very pleasant staff and knowledgeable as well. Daily recommendations were very good. A very big thump up!

We have been eating in this restaurant with my wife every time we visited Turku (total four times in past one and half years). The service and the food have been excelent every time. I have liked a lot of the food that the waiter has recommended (reindeer and whitefish).
