I cannot say enough about this place. I had a 3 course menu plus a cheese course. The pictures say it all...fine dining and terrific presentation in a beautiful outdoor setting. Finland isn't cheap, but at 42 Euros this was a steal (and more reasonable...than similar offerings nearby)!More

Excellent food, service and location. Nice terrace and cellar restaurant. If you want some special menu this restaurant is good choice.

Not usually my palate and very fine looking… but everything tasted so yummy! If you choose the three course menu, the dish sizes are smaller (lower price too!). But normal salad as a starter, good bread and main course… we were stuffed with excellent food....Easy access and good tables on the terrace for a wheelchair. Enough space too. Not so much on the inside I think.More

The restaurant is located on the banks of the River Aura, but the narrow frontage provides very few tables with any significant views. The vast majority of the seating is underground in a labyrinth of well lit and relatively intimate rooms. We chose the timing...of our visit so that we could be accommodated during a period of inactivity.. This was indeed the case and we were pleased that we remained isolated for the majority of the visit. The food was satisfactory although I thought my fish main course was a little overcooked. The service very good but course comments and explanations by the staff at the table were difficult to understand due the muffled effect of masks. (This is not a criticism but simply an observation). Overall, staff performance was good, but I was disappointed to have an unrequested bottle of water placed on our table at the end of our meal and a subsequent charge added to my bill. It was only 1€ and I made no mention at the time, but it did not encourage me to leave a small gratuity to the staff. I thought practices like these no longer existed in restaurants of repute. Other diners arrived during the dessert/coffee part of our meal and were placed next to us instead of at other vacant socially distanced tables. This may seem a small insignificant comment, but small thoughtless things matter when making recommendations.More

I had an amazing experience at E. Ekblom. it was a special occasion because I visited this restaurant at the party organized by my company. There were beautiful foods on the buffet but there was not so many vegan option on the buffet. When I...asked for a vegan option, the service person organized vegan dish for me and it was very tasty!! She even organized vegan cakes for me... I highly recommend this place!!More

Had three courses and enjoyed them all very much. One of the best fine dining meals I have had in Turku, great atmosphere and friendly staff!

There was no space inside so we had a table outside, which would have been ok but the table was very sticky, even after being wiped twice. Apparently this something to do with aphid poo. We had the three-course menu, of which the starters were...the best (steak tartare or summer roll). The main courses (risotto, or fish-of-the-day) were fine, but not much of a step up from what you'd get at a e10 lunch. The dessert, a blueberry and almond pie was quite good. For the prices, I'm expected a bit more. Service was rather slow, apparently because they were short staffed.More

Visited with friends. We quite enjoyed the three course menu. Value for money. I also like the atmosphare of the half- basement celler.
