Löyly Sauna and Restaurant

What is Löyly?

In Finnish, Löyly means the act of throwing water on the hot rocks in sauna. Löyly Helsinki is a beautiful Sauna and Restaurant venue, located in the south coast of Helsinki, overlooking at the Baltic sea. Most notably known for it's architecture, it is a great place to meet friends for wining and dining with or without a Finnish Sauna experience. Sauna is a Finnish concept and a place where locals retreat to relax, gather their thoughts and spend time with their friends. Voices from the sea and steam from the sauna puts your mind at ease.

During summertime, Löyly gets sunlight to the late hours of the day, so it is great place to enjoy the magic of - short but awesome - Finnish summer. The restaurant is open from lunch to dinner, offering brunches at weekend. Reasonably priced, the menu is full of Finnish foods and local produce. Especially fish dishes are recommended.
