Medium-sized place in Töölö, part of the fish-themed bars. I’ve gotten the impression that this one has the largest selection of the chain though, but overall the selection is limited to the ’kalaravintolat’- menu. I do like the place, but the service can be pretty awful at times, as many have noticed. The queue moves slowly, and it’s not unheard to have a bartender shout at you to be quieter.

The place is quite typical for a Kalaravintolat. Even though it was not that crowded the service was a bit slow, and took quite a while to find the beers I wanted. Seemed a bit unprofessional to me compared to the other pubs in the chain. When I visited it also felt they had slightly less than the other Kalaravintolat do have.

Typical ’Kalaravintolat’ pub. Rather small and limited selection. It’s OK but I prefer Hilpeä Hauki. The staff was helpful when I visited.

You’re supposed to go to a pub to relax and enjoy yourself. I came out of here with steam coming out of my ears and fuck all beer in my belly. With an average turnover of about one customer served every 10 minutes, and about half of the things I asked for - things that they have only had for a few days as part of a special festival of only about 15 beers - requiring a 5 minute search with negative results, I can’t believe this place remains in business. OK, it was one particular staff member who was the worst of the nightmare (she’s spoilt our evenings in Pikkulintu too), but the staff are a feature of the pub, so the pub gets punished for punishing me. One 20 minute walk later, we were in another fish pub with 20 times the customers, 10 times the queue length, but beers in our bellies almost immediately (Lohi). Draught Westvleteren 12 at €1/pint probably wouldn’t drag me back here. Yes, that wasn’t a review, it was a rant.

Pretty enjoyable atmosphere (now when there’s no smoking anymore), no (or low) music, table games available for playing. Good selection both tap and bottle. Service could be better. I’ve had beer gone bad here twice and on both occasions it wasn’t really recognized. Still they do serve/pour beer correctly as in all fish restaurants and leave bottle to be examined.

A mid-size beerpub on a busy street, with one of the smallest patios in Finland :) A typical "Kalaravintolat" selection - i.e. a quite good one. Only been here a few times.
