We were told, that we get our food in half an hour. When almost hour was gone, we did ask our meals and they promised to prepare our food next (so they forgot them totally). While we did wait over an hour, we still didn't...get our salads. We left the place and they still didn’t have prepared our food. Big mess.More
I ordered something which was supposed to be sold out but there was one item left which was heated for me and it took a while. The cashier seemed to be very tired, with no smile on her face and her appearance and service was...quite rude. The terrace was full of leftovers which little birds tried to steal. My table was a bit dirty and it ruined my appetite a little bit but I was trying to avoid looking at the table and looked at the nice beach instead.More
Sloppy is the word! Impertinent service. Empty luncheon trays. Stuff left at the tables. No cleaning for a long time. Lots of staff behind the counter, but had other things to deal I guess. Will not come back!
We had pizzas on summer Sunday evening which is definitely a peak hour at the restaurant. Despite the hurry a staff was friendly. Pizzas were juicy and tasty. However Margherita had even a bit too much of cheese. Pizza Italia was great.
Very nice atmosphere...by a sea and by a typical Finnish beach.
I warmly recommend visiting here.More
Cafe Mellsten is perfectly located with great views. It boasts two very large outside areas with a little inside dining also. The staff are great snd very friendly. No issues if you don’t speak Finnish, their English is very good.
Meals are good. Having dined...there for lunch and dinner we got to try a selection of the food. Pizzas in the evening are nice and prices are very reasonable.
The kitchen is a problem. Due to its popularity and growth, the kitchen has not kept pace. Even when there aren’t queues for food you can be left waiting over an hour to be served your meal. 1hr 10mins for 3 pizzas and a salmon salad. In fairness to the staff, we were told the wait would be about 50 mins.
I hope the owners have plans to better the kitchens as it takes away from what should be a great experience.More
The food at Cafe Mellsten is great, but it's the location that makes this place amazing. We had the Salmon slice (Lohipirakka) and salad and found it to be excellent, along with the coffee. However, sitting in the sunshine and enjoying a Finnish spring morning...outside near the water made it perfect.More
Nice location at the Mellsten Beach with enlarged terraces in 2018.
Used to be very good, now only average, mainly beacause of the current unprofessional staff, the selection of the products - actually lack of them. Most of the products are always "out of stock"....In addition, the prices are no longer reasonable.
Poor customer service. The owner is hiring very young staff, who do not have right attitude, ability and workmanship to take care of the things.
We used to visit often, not anymore. What a pity...More
