We had booked a table well beforehand, but we were seated in a separate dining room at the back of the restaurant. There were no windows or anything interesting to look at, only blank white walls. We assumed that the food would compensate for the...poor atmosphere. We ordered the five course menu, and we only liked 2-3/5 meals. All meals were average, nothing really stands out as being amazing. The worst meal was the main course, which was CHICKEN, cooked badly. The service was great, our waiter was professional. Not enough value for the money - you expect more out of a 62€ per person meal (plus €€ for drinks).More

If you find restaurant where you want spend time with you friend or business colleague, I think that is right place. Great food and nice wines from small vineyards. The peaceful and elegant environment helps to relax.

The restaurant is situated in the city center by the river Aura. It is a fine dining joint. The food ( 5 course surprise menu) was very good and innovative. However, the associated wine package was overpriced and mediocre. Service was immaculate and very friendly.

Me and my girlfriend spend 2 days in Turku and since we both like fine dining, we did not get disappointed. We chose the 5 course tasting menu with accompanied wines and everything was perfect. My girlfriend especially loved the dessert. The waiter was very...passionate about the wines and the served food. We really enjoyed our stay and we will definitely come back to this restaurant when we visit Turku again. Attached a picture of the main course which was entrecote. .More

Great experience. It is nice to get surprised by the cook who is making the menu for you. Good association of tastes, respecting the products taste and essence. I have to mention also the very warm welcoming crew and good advices from the sommelier.

The food is great, but the service is to die for. We ordered the five-course menu, and had the luxury of having the best waitress (at least in my opinion) for the evening. The stories, the knowledge etc... Omg, I would pay just to hear...more of them! I really recommend this place, a must see in Turku for everyone that loves food!More

During these troubled times it is relieving to know that some restaurants remain open. Smor is one and for a celebratory meal we enjoyed the full attention of the dedicated staff. The food was excellent, the service equally so and the lack of patrons made...the experience both enchanting and personal. The menu is limited but cannot be faulted and I would have no hesitation to recommend this restaurant to potential patrons.More

We had one cocktail each, five course tasting menu and wines for it. One menu was without meat but fish, another wasn’t restricted. The environment is cosy, yet there perhaps a couple of tables too many. Thus the restaurant is not too intimacy. The service...was a bit slow and we had one course serves without wines. It seemed like there weren’t enough waiters. Be prepared to wait! The food was good, not excellent. Meat was used in a boring way. Cow fillet as a main course is nothing new. Then again fish was great! A special shoutout to the clam with Asian twist, as it really brought us back to Asia! The wines were a great fit for the menu. I can recommend Smör, if you will take a menu without meat.More

Great date night. We both ordered the 7-course meal. Amazing progression of flavors. Wine matched each plate very well. The locally supplied meat (lamb, beef, fish "kuha") and veggies were amazing, never thought that much flavor could come from the wilderness here. Atmosphere also excellent....Waitress was beyond what I expected, especially considering the typical level of service in Finland.More
