The cow is located right in downtown, besides the Viking restaurant. It is kind of big, the couches are comfy, the service is very nice, and beverages are good. The price is the average for a Finnish pub. It is open until late at night. Great place to go with friends,

This place used to be our "to go" place, we went there at least a few times a week. The staff was nice and the atmosphere was down to earth. It felt like our own living room. Little by little the old staff left and we never connected with the new ones. It's an okay place to have a few... More

Nice beer place in the very center of Turku - nice choice of beers and drinks. Friendly and service minded staff. Very good and cosy atmosphere. The waitress had great knowledge about the different beers On top - we had "the best gin & tonic in the world" :-) Good place to relax

In Turku is only two bars where they can make drinks right. I like this one better, its also bigger and you can almost always find a place where to sit. Owner won gold in Finnish bartender contest, so he is very very good.

This is a great place for a drink in the center of Turku. Specially in the summer, its a great place to sit in your table and just watch people walking by the place. Few tables outside of the bar on the sidewalk. Professional staff, who knows a lot about drinks. Not a place to go for a beer or... More
