I have visited this place with my family. From outside it looks not much presentable but when you entered - you will immerse into friendly atmosphere and old school environment with brick walls, posters of 60ths. We have ordered as main course the mushroom cream soup and steaks (lamb steak and beef fillet in cognac-pepper sauce). Meat was more than... More

I went for the set price menu at 49 euros. I am obviously spoilt for cost and quality where I live in France as although the food was tasty and good I thought it expensive for what it was. It was mid week and the restaurant was very quiet (myself, a couple and a table of 6) but I could... More

Menu was positive challenge - too many good options. Mushroom soup was awesome and deer fillet almost melt in mouth. And nothing to complain House wine quality/price.

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

This is the oldest cellar restaurant in Turku. I do not know why I have not eaten here before. We ate here on busy Friday evening. The place and the atmosphere was very good. The a la carte list had good selection of different kind of dishes. We both had pheasant which was first time for both of us and... 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.
