My Partner had the buffet and I got the chicken. The portion was really generous and cooked just the right way for me! I have enjoyed the salad and fries but could not finish it, it was huge. We would have liked to go back...and try other things but we were limited by time in Turku! Kiitos!More

Were were having lunch together on my son' s 22nd birthday, just the two of us. It was a buffet table. The owner monitored us and what we had. When we were finishing the meal and were about to take the mousse for dessert he...came to us and started yelling at us as we hadn' t eaten up the dishes and there were some leftovers that we didn t like on the plate." Is this clear now that you take only as much as you eat", he shouted and he came in 30cm ' s distance to my face wearing no mask. And even though I had said it was perfectly clear he continued shouting the matter from the counter for the third time. We didnt answer him back but thought to ourselves this was wrong and not the kind of behaviour one should expect in our culture. He is a foreigner but should know better and act accordingly towards his clients in a business. I don't recommend this place to anyone! Kerrassaan kamala kokemus- olimme nyt 22v täyttävän poikani kanssa synttärilounaalla ja paikan omistaja monitoroi syömistämme ja kun lautaselle jäi ruokaa, josta emme olleet pitäneet, saimme kuulla kovaäänistä moitetta kolmeen otteeseen. Aluksi hän tuli 30cm päähän kasvoistani, oli vihaisen näköinen ja korotti ääntään kysyen, onko nyt ymmärretty, että täällä syödään loppuun se mikä otetaan. Hänellä ei ollut koronamaskia. Vielä tiskiltä hän huusi saman uudelleen. Se, että tämä on tasoton paikka tuli kyllä meille selväksi! HPMore

If you looking cheap buffet in downtown lunch this is your choice. There is good selection of salad and very friendly owner ( think he was the owner). Hot food there is only couple choices which were ok just little too salty.

Very well functioning staff, a great selection of foods, including many salads. Soft drinks included from tap, as well as dessert and coffee / tea. Staff always clean tables right after customers leave. Main waiter very friendly. Great value for money at lunch time.

Worst customer service! We were SHOCKED to hear from the manager/owner of this restaurant when he came to us and said, "This is not a hotel to stay for any longer". We came to the restaurant around 11.25am and started having lunch until around 12.30pm....While we were peacefully discussing and having lunch, this person, who claimed to be the manager/owner came to us and said, "This is not a hotel to stay for any longer ". There were many empty tables as well. We got unconformable and annoyed. It was so sudden, and he just told it to out face. This has never happened to me, ever before. If this restaurant doesn’t want customers to have lunch for more than a specific time, they should inform it to the customers. If we knew that we have to eat before a specific time period, we would have chosen not to go to this place. The food was also horrible. I would never recommend anyone to goto this place - "Lounasravintola Metropol", Turku.More

Ate here lunch on Saturday, a large salad bar, several mains including escalopes and chicken filet strips, several dressings, 2 deserts, coffee/tea and water/milk. Great quality for 12 euros. Food tasty and well salted. Very friendly service too.

Had a Saturday buffet lunch with a a friend there.The salads were tasty and there was plenty to choose from. The main dishes were not anything special,at least not in my opinion. Good value for money though, will absolutely go there again.

That's kind of old style bar with buffet, I believe a lot of local people come here. You pay only once (10,80€), you eat how much you want, so it can be a good idea when you're really hungry. Coffee and the dessert included. The...service was extremely nice to me, they explained me everything. The food was decent, but not more than that.More

The buffet is pretty decent but the service was terrible.. The owner behaviour was very agressive at first...but somewhat nicer at the end
