“Enyoing the sunny evening”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

We went with a group on Saturday evening. It has been crowded but we managed a table pretty fast. The staff outfit was cool...still surprised they were not shaking. Enjoyed great burgers and pizza while the sun was rising down. Fantastic location

“escape from reality”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

great atmosphere, always a party there even on a monday or tuesday eve! the food portions are massive, and drinks are what i suppose is normal priced for turku and being on a boat.
ive been to some other aussiebars and they all have the crazy loud party vibe going on which is good to see. dont be scared off by the initial "confrontation" of the foreigners being loud and fun and crazy, once you get to become a regulard customer (as i had recently done in the summer of 13) youre guaranteed a fun time everytime

Hey,

we are delighted that you loved your time here at Aussie Bar Turku, we do like to open up with warm welcomes and sometimes that is right in your face, but being so far from Down Under we try to bring that here with us.

The last 2 seasons have been great and 2014 is now upon us.

Looking forward to seeing you.

“Has it all, both Rock and Roll good times”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

Stopped by in the afternoon for a burger (was served a behemoth=) decided to have a beer then got involved in some beer pong with the staff (we won!!) ended up staying for a second meal and working my way through the aussie and kiwi beer menu.
Returned next day to cure the hangover with some awesome fish n chips,

I don't often visit Turku but when i do I eat n drink at Aussie Bar!!

Sir we are delighted you could join the staff in some beer pong, however I find it highly unlikely that you would beat the skilled and drilled team we have on board.

So happy that you enjoyed your meal and look forward to catering your needs in the future.

I hope that the fish'n'chips were up to your standard also.

Pleased you had time to try the 15 different products we have to offer from down under.

Many thanks for your time.

Isaac and the crew!

“One of the best restaurants in Turku”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

This restaurant is actually a houseboat on the Aurajoki ( the river in the center of Turku). I have been there multiple times and have never been disappointed.

The staff is very friendly, the music is good and both from Australia. I've chatted with pretty much al the guys working there and they are easy-going and like to joke around.

As for the food, it's totally worth it.
The lunch menu is slightly over 10 euros and I recommend the burger - it comes with succulent fries and you won't leave hungry.

The only "negative" thing I have to say about it is : too bad it's not open during the winter !!

Great thanks for the time you have put into the feedback,

Yeah we are always upset when having to close the gates on the bar for the winter, I guess if the demand was there to cross the bridge we would have no doubt to keep it open.

We are pleased you loved the Food, and this year we have even a few more ideas for the menu.
Really try hard with the music and glad that you liked this.

Looking forward to seeing you again in the near future.

MANY THANKS
