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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We visited this place on a weekday early evening. Atmosphere is nice, chill and friendly, the staff is friendly and helpful. Many gluten free options are available, and I’m sure they could accommodate to any diet. GF pasta dish was delicious, chicken wings sadly average...at best. Overall good experience and would go again :)More

The salad was a bit smallish. And the red wine I took was too warm to my taste. The venue is really beautiful and relaxed. Am

Had a delicious halloumi salad accompanied with a few different beers. They have a good selection of drinks and dishes to cover various tastes. The service was really friendly, not only on Finnish scale. You can easily reach the facility with public transport, or if...you don’t mind walking a bit.More

This small urban bar/restaurant is a hidden gem nearby the Hakaniemi Market Hall. It has a cosy ambience of a neighbourhood bar where you can take a cup of coffee, a pint of beer and enjoy some good food - or even spend time playing...board games with your friends. The staff is very friendly and there are customers of all ages, what makes it suitable for everyone. Even the background music is made for different kind of people: everything from old Finnish schlagers to reggae and Nirvana, for instance. So if you need a place to relax, visit here!More

An unlikely looking establishment that impresses once you’re inside and settled. Staff are excellent, two gins for Eud 10 during happy hour and great food. Highly recommended.

We went to Talo in the evening and found that the place was not only gluten free friendly but also dog friendly. Staff was amazing and super friendly. There is a very nice vibe in this neighbourhood coffee / bar and the toilets are worth...visiting.More

Just stopped in here for a quick beer and a toilet stop, but neither of those disappointed. The very friendly Massachusite bar man was a nice bonus!
