Pub style restaurant with good quality plates. I took dinner twice at this restaurant. First day nice salad and second day a steak. Good quality meat, prepared well, and with tasty vegetables. Service OK.

Gastro pub type food, according to the menus. This means mainly burgers and side dishes. Helpful, friendly and efficient staff. The basic club sandwich was mostly stale bread. Wine was excellent though!

I think this place is very reasonable price and has a really nice furniture and so, but their menu is clearly designed for those who eat red meat. Chicken options are rare and vegetable options poor. I once ordered a chevre pasta, and got an ugly looking stuff in a cold plate with two pieces of dry bread. I really... More

I had a one beer on the bar with my friends and then we decided to stay there for the dinner. The beer was very good with reasonable price (for Finland ;-). The simple food, just enough for the traveller. The size of portion is an average, quality good. The food was an average, nothing special, but generally good.

We visited this restaurant as a group and were happy about dishes. Although it is typical in Finland that if you visit a restaurant in connection of the hotel chain such Sokos, the food is standard. However, in Jalo it was different and tasty.

I stayed at the hotel and as the weather was bad, I gave the Gastropub a try. They have a signature Burger, that I ordered. The Burger was average and for my taste the bun was not crispy enough and there was too much mayo on the burger. But I guess, some will like to have it that way.

The pub has a great atmosphere, the outside area is really good and I recommend the deep fried garlic bread, the locals beers are ok. The service is really good, it`s an extra

Gastropub Jalo serves a large of beers and good food with it. They change their menu quite often and the dishes are interesting. Snacks or steaks, snails or sausageplates, all kinds of food to eat with friends, while having a pint or two or three.

Been here few times. Service has always been good, but my food not. First time I ordered a vegetarian dish with tofu in filopaste, didnät like it at all... But the two times after I've ordered their vegetarian burger and it was fantastic! Jalo is famous of their burgers and wings, so stay with those and you'll be happy.

Have visited this restaurant twice. It was easy to change into a gluten free appetiser although didn't originally mention the option on the menu. Have tried a fish and meat main dish and both were awesome. On the negative side they had one mix-up in the kitchen and we had to wait up for those appetisers almost 40min. This was... More
