A taste of USA

Our party had a pleasant dinner at Stefan´s. The starters were ok, only the escargots were disappointing, being too dry. The steaks were very good, although the prices were high too. Good selection of sides, sauces and butters. What I miss most from USA, though, is creamed spinach, which is a... read more

By a request a reserved a table at this restaurant for christmas lunch. Nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Place was quite full and busy but service was right on time. The quality of food was not quite what I expected. As a starter plate there was salmon mousse (good) and marinated salmon (not the way I like it). As a main... More

We arrived at a per booked time and were shown to a table overlooking the river. The waiter was very helpful in recommending local beers & dishes. My starter was a North Sea crab it was very tasty but suffered from being a small portion on a large plate. Main course was A reindeer steak with a sauce & cheesy... More

We had fantastic food and service at this wonderful restaurant across the bridge from our hotel. The service was wonderful, the restaurant warm and full of people. This restaurant was recommended to us by Finnish friends. We were served by Johanna who was just wonderful. The food was sooo very good. I had fish, the others had steak. The fish... More

Visited with business colleagues - they managed to fit us in at the last minute. Great service, really attentive. Best selection of steaks in Tampere. The chefs really went out of their way to cook my steak blue (not common in Finland) and they did a great job. The wine selection was good (great Malbec) and the cheese board was... More

I have been here with my family, friends and business partners and every time we have been involved with the head waiter, people have been talking how rude he is. Last week one of my business partners wanted to leave, before we even got our reserved table. Many of the waitresses are nice, so just try to awoid this person.... More

On a Saturday night the place was full, so better book a table. The Australian Black Angus tenderloin was one of the best steaks I've ever had, but the snails and the side dishes were not quite up to the par. Wine is expensive. The service wasn't bad, but we didn't feel specially welcome either.

I must start by saying the food is amazing! This has been our favorite restaurant in Tampere. Prices are on the higher side, but worth every Euro. The steaks are delicious, cooked perfectly to your liking, and have filling portion sizes. My husband and I have tried the sides: potato with chives and sour cream (amazing!), the asparagus and the... More

if you are looking for something a little bit more than the standard steakhouse in Stephan's would be worth a visit. this is a relatively new restaurant in Tampere, and provide a nice variation to what is currently available. this takes a very tasty and well presented.
