Large place right next to the train station. Inside lower level looked a bit dreary but they had seating all around the building, in sun or shade, depending on time of day. Nice place for people watching in good weather. Three of their house beers weren’t too exciting but they did have a few guest taps. Food was OK but pricey, decent selection of Czech items. Efficient service.

Big restaurant close to the western entrance of the rail way station,, with some house beers brewed in Czech Republic, and also some beers from Holba, not amongst the best brewery for those shores. Intimate, but rather noisy place late in the evening. Slow service.

A big restaurant / bar right in the middle of Helsinki. Specializes in Czech beer/food, and is undoubtly the best place in Helsinki to get some of that. Three (or more?) floors, basically occupying a whole house. Pretty nice bavarian food. Good selection of czech beer. Gets really crowded at times, and is a bit of a party- place on weekends. But nice atmosphere, nontheless.

Saturday afternoon, lots of people. Dark and rambling place. Bartender didn’t know what he was selling. I asked what’s the brewery of Maestro, he didn’t know. Well he could read the description of the beer from the backside of the tap. Good selection of Czech beers. Quite expensive and centrally located.

Selection of the beer is very nice. But service is very slow. Also, I found that beer wasn’t fresh as you can find in other pubs. But location and selection is really nice.

Very good location, nice from the inside too I guess. Went there for the Holba Dark which only seems to be available in Finland, got it immediately, friendly service. A nice selection of Czech tap and bottled beers, with some German and Finnish beers thrown in (they had Karhupanimo Talviuni down as "Karhu Talviuni", which I found to be rare the next day so I came back for that too). All in all, wasn’t disappointed. The prices might’ve been slightly lower though.

Been twice - very different experiences. First was late on a saturday night, and it was throbbing, utterly packed. However, I did get served promptly. The second time was on a saturday afternoon, and it was much quieter, much more pleasant for rating. The beer selection is the best of all Czech pubs in Helsinki, IMHO, and they have chosen above average examples of Czech beers, not the weak sweet muck that unfortunately dominates other places selections. Handy location.
