Stopped here for lunch while sightseeing? The place was quite growded on a Saturday. They had a burger buffet, which didn't look so appealing. Luckily ended up staying anyway. We chose a shrimp-salmon toast. Very much recommended, one of the best shrimp sandwiches I've tasted. Very good value, good service.

Great location by Aura river. Drop in for beer and burger while strolling along the river. Access by boat, foot or car. Good food and friendly service with a laid-back touch. My kinda place.

Food is good and prices is low. Location by the river Aura is great. Also the bar downstairs is recommended, the bar reminds an old ship cabin.

This is very similar to the other Kerttu in Turku (near the rail station). This one is a nicer building, more spacious and brighter. The same decent selection of beers and drinks, and the same sort of food. Both are popular and have been busy any time I've visited. Mostly a youngish crowd, but also some older people, a nice mix. I've always found the staff friendly and helpful.
Food-wise, it's simple, fairly decent stuff. I've only tried the hamburger or lunch buffets. Like the other reviewers have said, it's nothingppa fancy. But the buffets are always hot and kept full. Other places serve better food at the weekends for brunch (blanko, pinela, etc) but they are always more crowded.
If you want to relax somewhere for a few hours (even with kids) there's nowhere better. I've never felt under any pressure to move on after eating. Good music, Wifi, games, magazines all available.
Oh, and both Kerttu's have laundry machines for hire - €3.50 for 2 hours - long enough to wash and dry a load. Relaxing for a couple of hours with a beer or three beats paying huge prices to a launderette or hotel to iron and fold your socks and Tshirts.
So, 3 stars for the food, +1 for everything else they do right. A strong 4 though. Recommended.

Excellent value for money, situates opposite to guest harbourgh. We ( 2 adults and two 12y olds) ate here twice during our stay at guest harbourg. Menu suitable also for veggies and kids. Place is relaxed, and warm. Whole family enjoyed!
