Great lunch restaurant in the market hall

The restaurant is specialized in French cuisine (the chef is Finnish-French), and the ingredients are mostly from the market hall and the region.

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

The place is in the Tampere Market Hall, so one can not really expect fine dining and posh napkins. What I got was very friendly and professional service, good main course and very good dessert. End of the lunch, fish (in my opinion) a bit overdone. But I want to have my fish as the French -almost raw. Dessert was... More

This is a popular lunch place located in the Tampere market hall. The menu consists of French cuisine and it changes daily. The dishes are really tasty and definitely worth the price. The place is almost always packed so be prepared to share a table with strangers.

My first visit to this magnificent place yesterday. Food was perfect, accompanied with small glass of good wine, I couldn't wish for better lunch. Makes me wish I lived closer to this (or in France.) If you're after tasty french style lunch, there is no better place to go in Tampere.
