Not worth the price. Riding with it's historical reputation, but all that is lef is the name. Food is fine, but not on the level of the prices. Service is amateur level, and no table clauth or anything. More of grill level. Sad!

We arrived @ restaurant at 6.30 pm after reserving, but had to wait to be brought to our table. Then waiting again to order the wine ( finns Covid rules don’t allow to serve alcohol after 7 pm). But we had a bottle in time....Unfortunately the time passed and the waitress come for the meal order at 7.15. We waited for food with the bottle without getting served until 7.45. Then asking for the waiter we discovered that nothing was ready and the restaurant was going to close at 8.pm ( always finns covid rules). Discovered that the food was not even started to prepare and that we could not take the remaining of the bottle with us ( other finns rule). So after 1.5 h we had to pay the wine bottle and we were offered for ONE complimentary pizza. I also noticed ther there were other tables in that situation. So, what can I say? Zero organization, zero customer service, I dont know about the food. We had not the possibility to taste it. I understand that the covid rules are not the best, but, at least you can prepare to them, not taking all the tables and speeding up service and kitchen. A real nightmare restaurant...More

Very good location at Nauvo harbour and table with a view to sea were best part of dinner. Due that restaurant had just opened not items were not yet available. Hamburger was ok and white fish what my friend had was delicious according to her....Helpful and friendly service.More

We had dinner here twice during our stay in the area. Both experiences were very good. A male bartender greeted us warmly and went out of his way to get us a table on busy nights. With crayfish in season my spouse had the crayfish...on toast both nights. I had a crayfish salad the first night and except for the lovely crayfish the salad was rather simple and lacked enough dressing to flavor it. I had the tenderloin the 2nd night and it was cooked perfectly and delicious. The al dente veg with it was minimal but delicious and the potato gratin was very good. Service was also very good both nights. We enjoyed this restaurant and highly recommend it for dining in Nagu.More

We visited the area during the off season and it was super quiet. Staff was great and the meal was 5 star overall. I would def recommend this place.
