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.

    If you like beers and whiskeys this is your place. No music or tv which is a definite plus. Mostly local clientele and Vares (a detective in Reijo Mäki’s crime novels) fans. Turku dialect is a bonus as is the old pharmacy furniture.

    The best bar in Turku. During weekends there's DJ and the "smallest dancefloor in town", downstairs has self-service karaoke and pool table. Good selection of bottled beverages, also non-alcoholic, even the coffee is good! Friendly staff makes excellent cocktails. A perfect spot for solo chilling, date night or an outing with bigger group.

    Location couldn't be more central, just by the pedestrianised middle part of Turku's main street Yliopistonkatu (Universitetsgatan). There is outdoor seating, but it is the interior, which makes this place so special, since it looks as if grandmother had been the interior designer: walls with flowery tapestry or Delft tiles, with pictures in gilt frames of still lifes with flowers or peaceful nature sceneries. I quite enjoyed its atmosphere and went there twice during my stay.

    First I sat by the bar and asked for a 'Caipirosca'. The barwoman looked at me smilingly and said, that she had never made one, although it is in their drink card. She managed though easily, filling the glass with crushed ice and checking in her booklet: 4cl Grey Goose French Vodka, lime and sugar.

    The next evening I came again, sitting at the back, where there was a photo machine, producing pictures that were sent to an e-mail address. I enjoyed watching the mostly young girls in various poses in front of it. This time I had asked for a 'Long Island Ice Tea', which the barwoman knew.

    'Rabalder' didn't sound Finnish to me, so I looked it up, seeing that it is a Danish word, meaning a 'ruckus, a hullabaloo', somehow not matching the old fashioned coziness of the interior. There are several Rabalder Bars in Danish towns and some in Norway. The 'Rabalder Turku' is the first in Finland.

    If in town be sure to take a swing by the historical Port Arthur and it’s one of a kind kortteliravintola which serves the best drinks in town.
