Not a fancy place, but cozy - had 4 course menu with poached egg, pork neck, pike-perch and a chocolate cake; everything was very tasty, especially the fish. Quite small portions, though. Service was friendly, but lacked the final finish. Waiter had to check from his list what he was serving; pretty funny since the menu is very short. A... More

Everytime I eat here I am amazed by the high quality food and great service. Hidden behind what looks like a bad bar (see pic) off the beaten track, this is a true gem. Strongly recommended!

New owner has kept the quality of retaurant in very good level. Food is exellent and so is service. Small minus for long waiting time for food to arrive. This was how ever taken into account in bill. All in all one of the nicer restaurants in Turku.

We had starters and main course with a glass of wine and beer. The service was ok and friendly although the waitresses were new to the job. The food was ok and well presented. Their coffee machine was broken, so we did not stay for the desserts. There were candles on every table but they were not lit. Additionally, the... More

You really want to like this place. It sounds like everything it should be: cosy public livingroom with live music, good food, easygoing atmosphere.. And it nearly hits the note, unfortunately not quite. The service is good, nothing to complain about.The place it self makes you feel at home. Still, you feel, that something is missing. And the food: they... More

We had the 3-course menu, which was tasty, but the portions could have been bigger. The coffee didn't have enough taste -It was really "mild". Also the wine suggestion was ok, but I think I'd choose another one now. The service was nice and the prices reasonable.

I went to Sointu for some supper with a group of friends. Having arrived first, I had a pint at the bar which is right next door to the restaurant. While sitting there, I got to listen to the staff trying to fill orders but finding they didn't actually have this or that wine that was on the menu. The... More

We were eating here on Saturday evening. The place is not so big so you better make a reservation at least on weekends. The place was nice, very basic, rag rugs on the floor. It was little restaurant on the block. The place was cozy and service was very friendly. The menu is not so large which was good thing.... More

Despite of the trashy and worn exterior, this a really a gem. Went there with low expectations, but were taken by surprise of the swift and smiling service, very reasonable price and fast plates to the table. I was even offered a free taste of one of the local spirits. Just excellent.

The theme from Aki Kaurismäki films is very much accomplished in the restaurant with the bohemian style and a touch of melancholy. The service was kind though, and even live entertainment was offered in the form of folk music, that very well fitted the athmosphere. We didn't eat in the restaurant this time.
