Visited this place with my family and everyone of us was disappointed. The problem is - that this place - is roughly overpriced considering the quality of the food you get. The interior is OK, menu is OK, but some weird twists are there, like why goulash soup is served in a "Czech" restaurant, puts you wondering how "Czech" it really is, the service was fine, but the food... come on, you should expect much more when you pay 25-30 euros for your second course. Despite the central location in Helsinki. All in all, the famous price-quality ratio is in Vltava very bad. There are much better options just nearby. Not recommended!

Nice location, a decent selection of food both downstairs and upstairs. Great selection of beers but everything seemed to be a bit overpricey. Pint of beer for 7-8 euros is definitely too much and food could have been cheaper as well. It was good though. I had mixed selection of Czech sausages etc. and it tasted good.

Been there on the New Year's eve with some other international friends... Great location - right at the door step of the Central Railway Station.. It has two floors; ground floor sort of for drinks and upper floor for casual dining... Overall nice environment and was pretty busy as it was festive season... However, as another reviewer mentioned here, the barman did not know how to pour Guinness - he poured it in one gulp, guess what I ended up getting 1.5 pints instead of 2 :( Also they are a bit overpriced (pint of Guinness is EUR 7.20 here, where as some other pubs nearby do it for EUR 7.00 ).
