The Merry Monk’s fava bean burger is one of the best veggie burgers i’ve tasted. Served with super-delicious self-made chips. Highly recommended especially for the steak lovers who wants to try veggie burger for a change. Portion size is very large.

Excellent food and a great selection of beer and cider including some local specialities. Good atmosphere. All in all, a great place just to have a dinner or spend a nice evening with friends (human or animal alike).

We visited Merry Monk with our good friends. Tasted everything on the list (except dessert, no room for that ;) ) Food was really good, athmosphere warm and welcoming. Place is a bit far from the center (of Pori) but worth driving!

It is an excellent choice to stop by for a bite or to get a drink by the sea side on a sunny day. I visit here often and always go for a lamb burger or beef burger with chips. They have good range of...More
