Nice restaurant, the basement a traditiobal cellar restaurant. Good atmosphere. The service was a little bit amateurish, the waiter did not know the dishes and was maybe new to the job, but was really friendly. The starter salad was ok, but the main course was really tasty, I'd definately go back for that. Lamb cooked perfectly!

It must have been more than 20 years since I'd been in Foija last time. It used to be an institution as one of the oldest restaurants in town. The restaurant scene has moved down to the river during the last few years and Foija was closed down for renovation for some time, so I'd sort of forgot about the... More

New Year evening dinner. Pleasent athmosphere at cellar. Short, but attractive menu. As starter garlic-blue cheese snails, traditional starter, which you cannot miss and they did not. As warm two types of lamb...excellent...nice bottle of red wine, perfect! But no space for dessert...anyway good choice and worth of money

Service has always been good and when you enjoy your meal in the cellar you can feel the history because of brick walls etc. Never disappointed the food and service has never failed me. Only thing you should know you need to ask the code to WC, ask waiter or waitress.

Went in just as it opened and we're seated downstairs. Kind of dark down there but the service was very good and quick and the food was very very good. A little on the expensive side, but then again it is Finland :) Also very centrally located right next to the Market Square.

Good burger, fresh and nice new interior that succesfully respects the history of this building. Service was good, friendly and attentive. Burgers came quite quickly. We ate upstairs. I recommend as a peaceful place to eat, meet and relax. Conveniently located next to main market square in the entrance of Hansa shopping area in Turku downtown. Expensive wine list, especially...

I came to Foija right after harbouring a yacht following 4 days sailing from Gdynia to Turku without a stop. Which means I was really hungry of tastes :) Started with escargot, then goinng to white fish and finishing with Pavlova. All the dishses were perfectly prepared, balanced and fresh.
