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.

Café Mellsten has an attractive beach location in Haukilahti. The patios are large, and recently equipped with more parasols and some heating. Their pizzas are excellent, and arrived promptly. Service was very youthful and casual. Nice experience, again.

Mellsten has a broader patio and improved surroundings near the beach. Its popularity is constantly growing. Good beer and snacks.

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.

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.

I ordered pizza that should have had basilica. It had four basilica leaves, was salty and super greasy. It came 15 minutes late and I still don’t know if there was any mozzarella in it. Music was too loud (there came really noisy bass from kitchen). Cashier left in the middle of service and forgot to give me my cafe. Restaurant was not full. Don’t recommend at all.

Seriously the pizza was very tasty and it was nice to have some salty to eat after a long walk. Also service was nice and fast enough even if the place was quite full.

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.

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.

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.

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...

We all had a good pizza for a good price. At the beach, so we could have had a swim, but there was a blue-green alga warming. Worth a visit on a sunny afternoon for a refreshing drink as well.
