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.

I've been here a few times but this is my first review. They surprise every time with a different mixture of flavours. Because I would run out of superlatives I'll just state the essentials about the food: just excellent and delicious. The basic wine package...is usually good enough and I've tried the premium package a couple of times; this time, only the rose was nothing to write home about (but still decent). The whites were really good (I'm not a big fan of whites) and the red with the meat was truly excellent. The thing with the food is to keep it simple with local and fresh ingredients. After the dessert, the selection of cognac and calvados was amiable. The service was professional and friendly as always. I can't praise this place enough; if in doubt, go and check it.More

I just don’t get it how this restaurant is so much hyped. Creative ideas but lack of flavour and technique. No wonder they haven’t received their Michelin star. And sad to say but most of the dishes were either heavily inspired by two Michelin star...restaurant Jordnaer in Copenhagen as they mostly try to look the same. The food continuously lacks of taste. The service is extremely slow. On top of that some of the dishes were explained to us and after that explained to another table totally differently. There is a huge potential in the restaurant but sadly on this occasion - not in a successful way.More

Very delicious and extremely well combined 8 set course menu. The food was scrumptious and presented in a very artistic and beautiful way. The restaurant has a nice ambience as all guests eat the same menu so it is not that people are coming and...going. The staff were friendly and took a great effort to explain the composition of all dishes. It was also very practical to have all cutlery at a drawer at the table for all meals. The wine package was not that special and stories added did not give extra value - would have been more interesting to get information about the actual grapes, harvest and aging. Absolutely recommend Kaskis for a special occasion; there is no other restaurant with this unique concept in Turku.More

Kaskis is a place to go when you want a special fine dining experience. Place is very popular, and it seats perhaps 30 people, so book in advance. Set tasting menu is full of flavourful dishes made of local or finnish produce. Be prepared to...spend 3 - 4 hours of culinary time.More

a fine and fancy place with a very welcoming and committed staff. There were issues with table booking and requests to shift the date, but let us admit that in pest times such things may happen.

After two cancelled table bookings due to renovation and COVID issues and a request from the restaurant to rearrange the time we finally managed at the fourth attempt to have a meal at Kaskis. The new 'concept' is most certainly different as there is only...a set menu of nine very small courses provided for all diners complimented with either an alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks menu. All the food ingredients are sourced locally, so we are told although the non-alcoholic drinks menu includes and American beer that I wouldn't cross the street for. One cannot criticise the attentive manner of the staff, the quality of the way in which the food has been cooked, but the presentation appears to be motivated by a Monet enthusiast with far too many bright blue, white and yellow flowers decorating the various creations. For me this was all unnecessary and did not add to the purity of the real food. As we have previously noted, some courses comprise the cheapest ingredients and when one considers the total cost of the meal the accountant must be extremely pleased with the profit margins. Kaskis is a very small establishment, the decor is simple. Table placements do not conform to social distancing recommendations and provide little room for wait staff to pass between diners. Walls are plain and noise levels can be high at times so for an establishment that boasts fine dining there must be better options. I hesitate to suggest that Kaskis although being special in some sense, is surviving on a reputation that is somewhat misguided or simply caters to the egoist.More

If you are looking to splurge on fine dining to celebrate those special occasions in your life then Kaskis is the place to be! But you better remember to reserve early ahead because it is quite heavily booked most of the time. We went for...a couple's dinner here and selected the 6-course meal with the 6 wine selections. That's the most recommended menu if you would like to have the full experience. The courses (3 starters, 2 main dishes, and 1 dessert) are each paired with the wines that complement the dishes the best. The chefs put extensive effort into coming up with quite experimental dishes that melt in your mouth. There are also options for 4 course-wine pairs and 5 course-wine pairs.More

Fist a little bit of the circumstances occurred. In our group we had a 4 months old baby, and unfortunately just an hour before it rained heavily, meaning that we could not sit outside in the terrace. So it meant that we had the option...to sit inside, but there is not space for the buggy, so mother left the restaurant with the baby and we three stayed. No doubt the menu was nice, especially the filet was delicious. Outside the filet, it was only nice. What on the other hand made me uncomfortable, was the tight placing of tables so that the waiters had a lot of problems in serving the dishes. And the rush, what was with the dishes. I would have liked to enjoy more slowly the dishes, wines and the atmosphere, however when new dishes were coming again and again, it made me jumpy. Would I go again? Hmmm.More
