Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Don’t come here if you are a vegetarian. We had a group ”feast” and the vegetarian options were really not up to par. I was quite frankly still hungry after a three course meal. Virtually no protein in any of the dishes. The meat eaters...in the group were happier and at least not hungry. The taste was good but after a long day I want actual food, not just chargrilled cabbage. It is year 2024, how is it possible that restaurants still think that non meat eaters are dieting and don’t want to feel nourished? It’s not ok just to leave out meat and add a little beetroot. On top of that, service took forever. It was almost an hour after sitting down when we got some wine and about an hour until we got the first course. Ridiculous, especially given that in our group everyone had the same menu and the reservation had been made well in advance. All in all it was almost 4 hours before everyone got their bill, and that is way too long for a ”workday dinner” on a Thursday. The environment was nice and service was friendly but still I will not recommend this place to anyone.More

Very nice location on the Kakola Hill. Service is kind and professional, quite slow The appetizers are very small and expensive considering the type of dishes. . However, the main dish is good and quite enough. Potatoes is a huge portion, but nothingspecial. The bread...also is from a local bakery and quite enough portion, very good. The fish was delicious, well dressed, and presented. Good selection of wines, even if the prices as usual in Finland are really expensive. I had the beer from local brewing company, and I liked it!More

One of the best restaurants I have ever been to. Everything had such high standard. I could write so much about how good everything was, but to keep it short: The food was amazing!!! and also the service! Everyone in the staff was so nice,...polite and also had so much knowledge of the food. And even though we came from abroad and the staff had to explain everything in english, they were so professional and it was like they have never done anything else. So great drinks, great food and on top of it all great service.More

Service was very slow - main dish 1,5 hours after order. Menu was short - only 3 main dishes. Prices were rather high.

Excellent dinner in really interesting surroundings. What used to be a prison is now among other things transferred to a restaurant. We had a tasting menu and were very satisfied. The food was really tasty and we enjoyed the different combinations. Service was perfect too...so we left very happy.More

We were in Kakolanruusu with the big family: grandparents, aunt, parents and three kids on the fathersday weekend. We got a table in the "dungeons" so not in the main restaurant which was great with kids. Our waitress Sanni was amazing through the night. She...was super professional with wine recommendations etc and so wonderful with the kids. Shared food is not my favorite thing but it worked nicely and tasted really good.More

Very welcoming from the moment we stepped through the door. Waiting staff were all really friendly and helpful. Service and food was truly excellent. The only thing that might have improved the experience, since my wife and I were sharing plates as suggested, would have...been a plate warmer.More

The 3-course lunch feast menu did not deliver to our expectations. The appetizers as well as the main course sides were blunt; different ingredients, vegetables, sweet potato, radish, cheese lacked the twist, even the anchovies sauce was soaked powerless. The main course pikeperch was abundant,...but the burned charcoal taste overpowered everything, even the wine sabayon sauce. The dessert combo with marengue was fresh and delicious. The service was fluent and brisk. We were served by 5 different waitresses. We served our sentence and will let some time pass till the next effort.More

So far I’ve enjoyed my best dinner in Turku here. Despite being very young on average, the staff was really friendly and knowledgeable, while staying relaxed. The food was great, with many distinct tastes and textures in each dish. The menu was definitely enough to...fill a hungry stomach.More
