With a slightly misleading name (there is no associated Baron) this restaurant however preserves all the original features of its ancient heritage plus some original suits of armour that create the intended baronial impression. The owners of three years have created a number of separate dining rooms in the cellar with undecorated red brick walls that generate a discreet and... More

I happened upon this cellar restaurant almost by accident but was delighted with the quality of service and delicious seafood meal that I enjoyed on my last day in Turku. Highly recommended.

A group of 8 had new years dinner here. The service was very friendly and fun but a little slow and disorganised which is to be expected on a day like that. The portions were generous and reasonably priced, as was the wine. The food was tasty, meat cooked perfectly according to our wishes. The chantarelle risotto-side dish however was... More

Situated a little bit off the city center. Very atmospherict cellar restaurant with many medievally interiored small compartments. We were warmly welcomed and overall service was very good. All our requests and wishes were paid attention. Creamy black trumpet mushroom soup and country-style bread as a starter was delicious. I had mildly braised reindeer shank with blue cheese potatoes as... More

First of all, food that was served to us was absolutely great and wine was quality stuff as well. But the service. You rarely find as... More
