Decent food - good value for money

Basic restaurant with basic choices of burgers, beefs etc. I ate pike perch which was ok - nothing special but well prepared and very reasonably priced. Over all a good choice if you want to avoid the awful chain restaurants.

Great for drinks (try their Bombay tonic), with cozy but stylish atmosphere, but has also a great kitchen. Tried the small snacks which were all excellent.

Came in to an empty restaurant. Took 45 mins to get apetizers, which were great though. Main course after 1:10h, which was good too. Overall the food was great but the service seems to be slow.

We spent a wonderful evening here! The food was awesome even for a vegetarian (usually this is not the case in Finnish restaurants). The waiter did everything by the book, A+ for her! She even recommended a wine that became my new favorite :) We'll be back for sure!

I've had several lunches here and quality has been steady good al the time. Now here is new interior and menu so try a'la carte too. One good point is that other half of the place is bar and has often stand up nights. Book tickets beforehand

I was at Intro last Saturday, it was a huge disappointment. I ordered steak which costed 26€, it was sirloin, it was OK, but sirloin steak in Finland that cost that much is a humbug. My steak was wrong at the fist and second time. After a second time I decided I am not going to wait that the chef... More

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.
