We took the 5 course menue. The service was really good. The food very tasy and different from ordinary dishes. Surprising tastes had been combined to make a very good and exciting result to the taste buds. Presented in a delightful way. Unfortunately as so...often in better quality restaurants the amounts were minute. My husband and I are not really huge eaters and both quite small. We could have had twice as much on the plate on each course though.More

Lovely dinner, especially cauliflower soup, but everything else was splendid too. Wines complemented the courses very well. There was a bit of a suprise element, too, which was nice.

First time in Ludu and we took the 5 course dinner + wine package. Two starters, one main and two desserts. With this division either the starters or the single main dish portion size could've been slightly bigger. Most memorable dish was cellery soup with...pork, absolutely delicious. Wine package had excellent choices that worked really well with the food. Overall athmosphere was relaxing and quiet, only few other tables so safety distance was not an issue and service was paced nicely.More

Restaurant LUDU is just a short walk from the main market square and offers patrons a very limited but varied choice of dishes. They also serve a 5-course tasting option for 55€ with an additional wine menu selection which is becoming quite popular with many...establishments recently. The floor arrangement can be cramped when all the tables are occupied which to my mind would not conform to COVID recommendations but as our visit was at a time when few diners were present, it was very comfortable. Our table was adjacent to the main door and provided a cool icy draught whenever someone arrived or left which was uncomfortable. The warm welcome was followed by an equally pleasant meal service but the food itself seem to have an over-abundance of rich flavours that did not allow the full flavours of the primary item to be enjoyed. The presentation was OK but I was alarmed that tomatoes with the grilled fish main course were seemingly served straight from the fridge. The limited selection of desserts were equally average with the white chocolate option containing overwhelmingly rich flavours that I had not previously experienced and could not determine. Overall, the service was first class, but the limited menu and odd flavourings would not encourage me to return when there are so many other nearby options.More

Nice restaurant in the heart of Turku. We had Saturday evening menu degustation in Ludu. Service was friendly and professional. Food was good and for example main dish meat was excellent. I can warmly recommend Ludu.

On our first day in Turku, we visited this restaurant and we were not disappointed. We chose the 5 course tasting menu with accompanied wines and everything was excellent. This is one of the better restaurants in Turku and if you are in Turku then...you should really try this place.More

This restaurant was not our choise, as we were invinted to join some friends who wanted to treat us a dinner. We all chose 5 course sampling menu with an appetizer of salmon, cauliflower soup, entree with meat and two different desserts. The cauliflower soup...was the bestest (!!) ever with some fried pork bits among it (one of us is a vegetarian, so he got almonds instead and said they were good, too). Service left a bit more to expect, but it was still frienly, just not as attentive as expected. I would happily return just to be able to have the cauliflower soup again!More

This place was renovated more than 5 years ago and they saved the gorgeous floor tiling from over 100 years old. Their Scandinavian menu is seasonal and is also available as vegan. My sweet potato and carrot soup was tasty and well seasoned. My pan...fried salmon with potatoes and grilled bock choy/toasted crushed almonds was yummy at all levels. Service was engaging and helpful.More
