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.

Our former dinner in Smör was amazing, so our expectations now were very high. This is why this time the seasonal menu was a disappointment, although small, for us. The scallops and the dessert were extremely good, but the other dishes were "only" tasty. Service...was again friendly and efficient.More

It has been 8 years since our previous visit to Smör and looking back at my review from 2016 I rated Smör with four stars but this time it was easy to give a five star rating. We all enjoyed the longer set menu accompanied...by the recommended wines (two of us) and the non-alcoholíc beverages (two of us). The servings were all excellent and beautifully presented. I would also like to point out the service and give it a special thanks ... very friendly and in no way pretentious as you sometimes encounter in fine dining places. The restaurant itself is also very cosy and if you are a group of four or more and want to have a somewhat private and calm seating ask for one of the more private spaces when booking. There are a number of good restaurants in Turku and if you choose Smor ... based on our experience you won't be disappointed.More

The service was perfection with knowledgeable descriptions of everything. The ambience suits the food and the occasion. It's not cheap but...nevertheless worth every penny/centMore

This is why fancy restaurants sometimes have a bad rep. Food was not even ok and the explanation was a new menu. What a poor explanation. If they need to adjust to a new menu, they should have lower prices as well. We paid a...lot of money for something that was someone's training cooking, and tasted that as well.More

Very good restaurant but food not the most high end as you would expect. Quality products, excellent service, just little bit taste missing on 7 course Smör menu.

Our dinner at Smör was enjoyable, but not different from your average fine dining. Writing this review a few weeks after the fact, there is not many distinctive things to remember. The restaurant is definitely a good option for a business or couples dinner.

As you enter the restaurant, there are no give-aways that you are in for a great culinary experience - rather the opposite. The locale is down-to-earth, rather simple, and reminds you of one of many everyday cafés you come across everywhere. Your interest awakes as...you see the menu. Although short, it is distinct: Smor presents classical Finnish tastes i an innovative and modern manner that truly tease your taste-buds as you make up your mind. Make it a simple choice: Go for one of the two proposed menues! These comprise a well composed selection of the entire restaurant menu. The full menu (Smor menu) comprise six courses, but do not let that number put you off: Each course is fairly small, but so rich in tastes, and so well composed to complement another, that you easily come through the entire menu without filling overly «stuffed». The meal is to be enjoyed with all senses: the visual beauty of how it is presented, the wonderfull scent from each course, the delightfull sound as you hear how each course responds to your knife, fork (and occassional spoon), and finally the delightfull taste of each bite. The service was good, without being overdone - but good attentiveness and knowledge. The wine selection is sufficient, but could be both broader and deeper. This is no restaurant that imposes itself upon you, but believe me: It truly delivers a great gourmet experience you would expect to find in much more fancy surroundings!More

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

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
