I used to like this place but now after renovation it was really a dissatisfaction. Cold atmosphere, no feeling at all. It was like Hesburger. No need to visit again. 😩

Perhaps the best steaks in town but still room for improvement needed. Nevertheless, always friendly, welcoming and cheerful staff. The restaurant needs to go back to it roots and rethink the original concept and reflect these thoughts on the choice of the appetizers, main courses and desserts. Deliver what you promise - if you state Salsa Verde, it's not a... More

I ate the best crayfish risotto this far in Intro. The restaurant is divided in two: a-pub-alike-bar and dining restaurant, which is not fine dine, not a bistro, not a gastro pub, not a ... Well. It is having good quality, but still some solutions are a little bit cheepish. The action on the bar side can distrub a little... More

If you'd like a place to sit down for drinks with your friends on a Friday night rather than to dance the night away, go to Intro. They've got a wide selection of beers & cocktails and good food.

Intro has everything for a good night out, both for chilling out or wearing out your dancing shoes on the dancefloor. The music is arguably the best in Finland...of course depending on one's preference. But if you're a friend of funk, soul, groove, jazz etc then Intro is definitely the place to go on Fridays and Saturdays. Currently it's the... More
