Very good lunch buffet for 16.90€ per person. Several mains, lots of fish and salads, but no soup or dessert. Still a strong recommendation, harborfront lunch here is a must when in Naantali

Adorable restaurant right on the shore with a lot of hubbub to watch while eating as boats are mooring up and leaving. The buffet is well worth the money. Live music at night and loads of locals. The most popular place around and has been...for decades. Authentic. Typical architecture of the area inside and out.More

Very nice atmosphere. We enjoyed beautiful hall and smoothing music. This time we ate breakfast but earlier had buffet and it was good as well! Only drawback is owner who is yelling to waitresses and cooks.

We had a lunch here. The buffet was really traditional, but it suited the atmosphere and place perfectly. The inside of the restaurant is somewhat retro and really cool. The terrace is maybe the best in Naantali. The plastic windows were a life safer during...windy and rainy days.More

Lunch buffet was still great, especially fish and salat table. Service on ordering not really great, somehow made me feel like stupid if you don’t know beforehand what to do... Great view!!!

Every time I visit Finland I have to come here. I especially love the starters of all the different types of fish - smojed salmon, salmon, picked herring etc. Somehow i always manage a main course, the beef is particularly nice. The building is so...unique, full of history in a wonderful setting.More

We were finishing our dinner. I went to take a coffee to my wife. Bartender attacked to me and insisted that I had not paid our dinner. In spite I said that I have been there many times, in my cousin's restaurant, and I know...the practice, he did not stop before insisting before I showed my bill. Last time in that restaurant.More

Merisali is really at the seaside in Naantali old town. In late summer evenings nice place to have one for the road.

The building was very nice, historical and betaiful, we enyojed our moment there a lot. This is one of the most interesting and inviting places in Finland for me. Customer service was excellent, nothing too much or less, but personal. Music was nice, suitable, and...not so loud. From the terrace we enyojed the beatiful view to the sea.More

I wasn’t impressed by the service The waitress wasn’t very friendly, there were no activities for small children (suggest you invest in a few crayons and some paper!) and no WiFi But the food was good, the kids menu great (huge portions which my elderly...aunt found more than adequate too) and the wine and beer nicely chilled 100e for lunch for four including drinks.More
