Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The quality of food at the "Wine & Dine" restaurant on the second floor is nowadays excellent and their menu is very innovative. As the views from the second floor windows are fabulous, this could be a great restaurant for a nice dinner. But unfortunately...people can walk in to the restaurant from the terrace with their drinks, so the atmosphere feels like being a noisy cafe. We ended up eating our dinner while listening someone at the neighboring table talking very loudly to her mobile phone for almost an hour. We could hear her conversation better than our own...More

Situated at the harbour this modern combination of sea-water swimming pool,sauna and other pools you can have a drink in the bar inside or outside and enjoy a dinner. We chose to sit inside, even though there was quite many swimmers in the -probably warmed...up - outside pool. We had the fish of the day - a tasteful cod - and a beef cheek with a brown sauce. Both very delicious and enjoyable. With two glasses of wine, one dessert and a coffee, it summed up to only 55€. We considered it very pricewirthy! As the sun set, the ferry from Sweden arrived, the smaller ferries went to and fro, people enjoying the nice spring feelig; we had a lovely time and meal at Helsinki Allas! Go there!More

Even though this was not my taste it was still good. The cafe overlooks the Baltic and pools which add to the enjoyment. The staff is friendly and helpful. This is a great pit stop if you are down on the waterfront.

While walking around Helsinki, we had to stop at this place for my 85 year old mother to use the restroom. It's a spa, pool and cafe. They were nice enough to show us the restrooms and when we walked in realized they also had...a cafe. We decided to have a coffee and pastries and take a load off our tired feet. When we went to sit outside we realized that the outdoor area also was an out door pool and sundeck right next to the river! Very cool! Since we were not pressed for time, we decided to make our break longer and relax at this place! We bought more food and drinks and just relaxed. It was great. The coffee and pastries were yummy especially the croissants (plain and filled). The wifi was super fast (and free) and the restrooms were clean and plentiful. We really wished we could have brought our swimmers so we could take a dip in the pool. Next time we'll be better prepared. It really was a nice place to stop and relax that's off the beaten path. Definitely go if you can! PS beware of the big seagulls that have no qualms about grabbing your food as you are sitting there!More

Nice place for a swim, sauna and relax. You should also try the sea water pool, cold but refeshing! Pretty expensive, but still worth it with great views to the city.

What better way could one treat oneself after a two-hour harbour tour than to visit, eat and drink at this unusual location. Sit on the wooden deck overlooking the three swimming pools and the stunning harbour and eat and drink yourself to happiness. The wine...is top class, the food is delicious and the view of the outdoor market, the harbour, the many beautiful buildings and cruise liners and the Greek Orthodox Church is an added treat. We toasted ourselves here after a delicious meal and a few glasses of fine wine.More

I have never seen anything like it anywhere in the world: A wooden structure, maybe temporary and only there during the summer, that combines sunning decks (free), several cafes, restaurant, and two pools, one surrounding sea water, the other insulated. The sunning deck that we...visited offers lounge chairs and bean bags and great views of the harbor, Greek-orthodox church, and the big Ferris wheel. On a sunny day this is a hopping place - and you want to go there!!More

Hi! Thank you for a really nice review and welcome again! :)

What a brilliant idea! A public, yet super clean pool right in the middle of city by the harbor side. You can lounge about after a swim and if you get hungry and want to get a bite to eat it is right there. Afterwards,...you can climb up on the top patio and have a drink and the best part is - no smoking allowed!! You can breathe fresh air and enjoy yourself with a beautiful view to the ocean and watch big cruise ships take off in early evening. A must visit!More

Not many locations offer a combination of a sauna visit and dinner after. In Helsinki's Allas Sea Sauna and Nieghbor Restaurant you can. Don't worry, you don't have to be totally naked in the sauna, and at dinner you are supposed to be dressed :-)...Food is good, wine is good, and the views over the city and the harbour are incredible. If you want something special - buy a ticket for the sauna and reserve a table for dinner, and feel a Fin for a day.More

This is a fantastic place for anyone who loves the Scandinavian style and cozy simplicity. There is a pool outside, where you can swim and enjoy the wonderful scenery. The café has warm foods, sandwiches, deserts, ice cream and what will you. The price is...not cheap but is not expensive either compared to the place and the location.More

I am not sure about flip flops but towels and swim suits are available. I believe they have some inexpensive footwear for sale.
