Great bouillabaisse at unique ambience

Had lunch today with a friend at Tampere's beautiful kauppahalli (market hall). The kauppahalli itself is an institution which breathes and lives tradition and delicious food. 4 Vuodenaikaa is a French restaurant inside the market hall.

The bouillabaisse was simply amazing and i will return for sure when in Tampere next time.

Delicious bouillabaisse, a must try while visiting Tampere's kauppahalli. Great place for a lunch, although quite busy during weekdays.

The restaurant is specialized in French cuisine (the chef is Finnish-French), and the ingredients are mostly from the market hall and the region. The price was great when thinking about the food quality! We had fish with a glass of white wine, and the price (approximately 17 euros for everything) also included a small salad and bread. Everything was just... More

I have visitted here couple of times mainly because of all the raving reviews this place tend to get. I fear this restaurant owes lot to the great atmospehere of Kauppahalli Other than the ambiance of the market hall this restaurant is overrated. Service is ok by nordic standards but the food is actually just barely mediocore.

Just next to the Neljä Vuodenaikaa restaurant is the hot dog grill of the same owners. The hot dogs are served with different self made (fresh) sausages. This easily the best fast food place at Tampere in my opinion.

This restaurant is a really worth to visit when inTampere in Finland. The taste of the food is really delicious and something you would not expect when entering the restaurant. Be prepared to wait a seat because the place seems to be very busy and the seating reminds one like a street kitchen seating. My favorite is the Bouillabaisse- the... More

French cousine with local ingredients at affordable prices right at the food market hall. Excellent food, but too few seats (it is almost always full) and tables are a bit cramped. Definately worth visiting.

This is the place in Tampere if you're looking for high quality lunch quickly alone or in a small group, as the tables are pretty much fully booked during the lunch time. So far there has always been a place for one or two, because the kitchen is very efficient. Try for instance the restaurant's own sausage!

You have to try this restaurant when visiting Tampere and you're after a good lunch! Located in the market hall (opened in 1901), it's already worth visiting, but in addition to the lovely ambient, you get very good food. It is a bit different approach to a "normal" restaurant: people are seated in benches and you might end up to... More
