Text in the facade says: Curia Arctopolis. Restaurant entrance is on the other side of the building. Situated in the cellar of the former City Hall, the restaurant hall is a rare example of its architectural style in Finland. Some of the building's history is interestingly told in the menu leaflet We ordered pike perch à la Mannerheim. It arrived... More

Restaurant has good menu with different choices with fish and meat. Wine selection is reasonable. Starters emphasis also local raw materials like fish. Also our guests were happy about menu.

Starter, mussels was nice. Main course was very good IF you like blue cheese. I think they should go easy on that cheese because you can not taste how good that meat is under that.

We were to have a special night out in Pori and we had eaten in this restaurant years ago. The food was truely awful with meals not corresponding to the descriptions on the menu! We had a shared starter for 3 of various Baltic fish which was adequate but no more. My wife ordered grilled chicken with grilled vegetables and... More

I have visited this restaurant several times in the past and this was worse of them. Service was as good as allways, but food quality has gone down dramatically. Starter salad was dry, toast cold hard and dry. It looked and tasted as if it had been made hours earlier. Steak was grilled exactly to my taste, but it was... More

We went to Raatihuoneenkellari, for a casual dinner, after a long working day. The food was just delicious, typical smoked Salmon and Herring for starters. Great service, the only thing was that the main course was a little bit cold.

We had a welcome drink (non alcoholic) first, then some appetizers and the main meal. I had a pepper steak which was perfect. My wife had steak... More

午餐时段来到这里,有一些客人但是并不吵闹,环境很好。地窖式的红砖墙壁很有特色。我和先生点了当日午餐(猪排)和作为午餐的牛排,但是都感觉口感偏老,而且吃完后会口渴。沙拉桌是自助式的,有好几种腌鱼熏鱼和各式沙拉。面包应该是店里烤的,冷了也很香。牛排性价比不高,以后也许会来尝试其它午餐或单点菜式。 Ordered today's lunch (pork, 13€) and a la carte lunch (steak, 25€). Kalapöytä, "fish table", and coffee were included. The fish table has a good variety of cold and smoked fish and salads with steamed potatoes, which can be ordered as lunch at 11€. Main dishes were however a little disappointing, as both meat were too dry. The cream... More

The restaurant is beautiful and romantic: the old, vaulted cellar of the old city hall stylishly turned into a lovely yet cosy restaurant. The service was friendly and very good - but the food something of a disappointment. Mostly just an average performance - the look of the place had lead us to anticipate more.
