Too bad there's not more of these places around the seaside. Summertime there can be some simple barbeque and similar dishes; now in Easter it was really not the season so it was just a basic cafe menu (there's only outdoor seating). What's available is good quality. While it was slightly windy day it was still ok as the building... More

Visited on a warm and sunny May day in the middle of the week. Just had coffee and a glass of bubbly. Self service, staff indifferent. I got a feeling that this might be a bit overrated...maybe unfair after just one visit, but... The view is nice though.

If I had a date in summer time, I'd definitely meet in here! Modern, smart outdoor bar/cafe 2 meters from the sea. Try strawberry-meringue cheesecake with strawberry-champaigne tea. Plenty of romantic walkways afterwards...

The location is great when the weather is good, personnel is very kind and service minded. The food was interesting but unfortunately not really up to par with the location. My steak was a bit too cold and overdone, they didn't ask how I want my steak, it was also a bit on the thin side.

This is place you need to check. Selection of champagnes, vines and beers, and great coffee. Nothing beats the view at sea! Demo goes to mattolaituri quarantines great good. Crawfish soup was excellent with white wine! If you have not been here take a tram to kaivopuisto and walk through the park next to sea!

After reading that this was a dog friendly resturant/caffee decided to visit Mattolaituri for lunch when we spend a day in Helsinki, travelling with our dogs. I was dissapointed when it came for lunch, you could choose between, pooring, tasteless pie, or expensive, quite speciell dishes from the grill (we felt that it was too much food for a lunch)....

This bar has amazing views. Whether you sit on a beach chair in the sand, or up on the rooftop, both have amazing views. You can see islands, the coast of the city and people going along on their boats. A must do for drinks or food on a sunny day.

Rain or Shine we had a fab night sitting undercover outside with warm blankets covering us (provided by Mattolaituri) it was raining but who cared our mood was lifted by the best champagne, good music, nice people not over crowded and great sea view. This is what a summer is all about!
