Pleasent dinner with small room for further improvement

We had a nice family dinner enjoying 4 courses of food. Most of the food was brilliant but some of the dishes had still some room for improvement. For example the muffin made of swamp was so hard that it was almost impossible to cut. Also the clayfish was a bit cold after the dish was introduced... read more

Service at this place was quite odd. This is an expensive and trendy restaurant and we were treated as if we were not entitled to have requests or wishes. We took a 5 course menu and the portions were so big that it was almost impossible to finish them. And once we got the bill - well - we decided... More

We had a 4 course suprise menu and food was basicly quite nice. But we had to go to local "snäkäri" afterwards to get more food because portions were extremely small ones. And same time wine package was full sized so we were also quite tipsy. Not very nice experience.

we had a lovely family dinner and all left the restaurant extremly satisfied, both the food and the service was perfect. The space is quite small but still the atmosphere was sufficiently tranquil and discussions on other tables did not disturb ours. I can warmly recommend.

Outstanding service, memorable tasty food, took 6 courses which all exceeded the expectations. This restaurant is one of the best one's in Tampere, it aint cheap, but it's well worth visiting, especially with your loved one. The wines are matching perfectly with the courses, the atmosphere is romantic. There aren't a view, as the restaurants location is not ideal, but... More

Had heard for some time that this was supposedly one of the nicer and finer restaurants in Tampere, but had never made it til now. It is fine fine dining, almost Michelen star quality in what they are trying to do and prepare - and make no mistake they do it well - and it is an experience as much... More

The place is nice. Nice furniture, nice lights. But the food was quite disappointing. In trying to be a high end complex restaurant, you end up receiving complex but messy food. It's colorful, but not in an aesthetic manner. There are many flavones, but they are all over your mouth. Really a pity.

We went here on a wednesday evening with a group of ten, only two other people had decided to dine in this establishment that night... We took the full menu of eight courses and left the choice for wines in the hands of the amicable and professional staff. This turned out to be a good decision... The meals were of... More

I heard that used to be a good restaurant. Not anymore apparently. Only one waitress, no somelier, staff arguing, etc. Wasted money.
