Proper, easygoing "home dish" lunch. Place is nice and pretty authentic with classic furniture. Would go again!

This place is close to the train station, not far from the centre. It is usually crowded at lunch time and also very popular at evenings. We ate here at lunch time. The lunch was buffee and it consisted of salad, soup, two different main courses, dessert and coffee. The service was self service. Food was good.

Relaxed place for lunch/dinner or a pint or two. On the menu salads, burgers etc. at reasonable prizes. Offers also a burger buffet (not at summertime), but the burgers on the menu are much better. Also for families with small children, it's quite ok in the evenings too. Great location near both train and bus station. Self-service laundromat and board... More

This use to be one of our favourite restaurants in Turku, if you are considering price vs.quality and I've been here several times with my wife and with our company. Unfortunately things have gone so bad last couple of times, that next time we will continue to somewhere else. Food has been bland and we have waited our mains surprisingly... More

You can eat here and do your laundry at the same time. They also have board games. It's also a nice place to hang out or grab a coffee.

I do not know, I like being called "mussukka" ("honey") by the restaurant. It shows everywhere, it seems that they care about their customers. The food is great and I would say good value for the price. The hamburgers are a must! I understood they make the rolls and some cheese by themselves. Usually location sucks with these, but Kerttu...

Been there a couple of times now. Both times were excellent. Great food, great service and great value for money. Basically, it's a burger joint, but not your average burger joint. It's not "Fast Food" for one thing. Burgers are freshly made in a "home-made" bap, and served with a good portion of chips (British Chips, not American). Looking forward... More

I've been here both over drinks and for dinner and in my opinion Kerttu is better if you just want to grab a drink or two. The atmosphere is relaxing and the service good. I had a burger there once and for a place that specializes in burgers it wasn't too great. I do however feel like the general feel... More

Looking for a quick and still good food on a Sunday. Not very easy, if you do not want to have mcD-type or S-chain food. Try Kerttu on Läntinen Pitkäkatu. I love the feeling of "non-chain" restaurant, nothing fancy (especially considering the interior decor) but still decent food and fairly quick service. I had goat cheese salad, and the chevre...

This place you nearly need to know beforehand - it has such a modest appearance in a sidestreet. The interior and atmosphere is more functional, rather than cosy. The staff was very nice and friendly. We had deluxe hamburgers with chips. Our dishes were very tasty with homemade buns and French fries. Not so imaginary but enjoyable though. Water or... More
