If you want local fish, this is the place! Eel was excellent! The terrace has amazing view to the castle and service was good. They were willing to change according to our preferences. Also kid's menu was good. Also other dishes than fish were great on the menu.

Super excited about this place! Impressed with the sense of aesthetics. The food was both attractive and delicious. Just a real symphony of tastes with the castle in the background. I enjoyed the interior and all the details. Service was fast and attentive. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Great service, good choice with several catch of the day to choose from included filleted and whole fish. Cooked perfectly and good drinks to choose from - both beer and wine. Standout dish is an appetizer - The Fish Plate comprising of 8 components, all to die for and accompanied by bread.

Awful restaurant, would never recommend or visit it again! You can MAXIMUM take a cup of coffee to enjoy the view of the medieval castle. Expensive, untasty, poor service.

Came here for a drink after visiting the castle. Standard prices for the area, did not try the food. Staff were attentive and we were able to choose to sit inside or outside. Great location overlooking the castle.

The Church of the Holy Cross

The church of the former Franciscan monastery was built probably between 1515 and 1520. It is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Rauma. The church stands by the small stream of Raumanjoki (Rauma river).

The exact age of the Church of the Holy Cross is unknown, but it was built to serve as the monastery church of the Rauma Franciscan Friary. The monastery had been established in the early 15th century and a wooden church was built on this location around the year 1420.

The Church of the Holy Cross served the monastery until 1538, when it was abandoned for a hundred years as the Franciscan friary was disbanded in the Swedish Reformation. The church was re-established as a Lutheran church in 1640, when the nearby Church of the Holy Trinity was destroyed by fire.

The choir of the two-aisle grey granite church features medieval murals and frescoes. The white steeple of the church was built in 1816 and has served as a landmark for seafarers.
