Very good but not fine dining

Food and service is very good but some dishes have the x-factor while others are pretty standard fare. The restaurant is an attractive venue, delivers interesting food combinations and is worthy of a visit.

Food and service is very good but some dishes have the x-factor while others are pretty standard fare. The restaurant is an attractive venue, delivers interesting food combinations and is worthy of a visit. The menu seems to be struggling between what to provide a hotel guest and what the kitchen would deliver with more freedom. We certainly weren't disappointed,... More

We had a 4 course dinner in a group of six people on Friday night. We had a lovely time with friends, but the restaurant it self was not the greatest one. In my opinion there is many much better fine dining restaurants in Tampere. Restaurant is a bit out-dated and the venue not so great, you have to go... More

Great experience with delicious food. Not the cheapest one but the best in Tampere. As a local I´d rather pick Masuuni than fine dining in Näsinneula-tower.

I have always been a bit sceptic about hotel restaurants. However, since this restaurant had got really good reviews we decided to try. The food was exceptionally good and the service as well. Our waitress was so responsive, quick and the timing was just perfect. All the wine recommendations were also spot on. Tomato raviolis and beef were perfect. Local... More

We took their ready meny with 3 meals, a blin as an starter, quite OK. Horsebeef with peppersauce was totally out of spices yet blueberry pie was again guite OK. The wines selected by sommelier (?) were also OK. But when haaving a dinner for two after an operaevening you wait to have some room, not so, that the space... More

After checking all the reviews, we came for a special dinner and got quite disappointed. The sitting was nice and private with good view, and so was the service. However the wine glasses weren't clean at all. The dirt spots showed really clear even in the dim light. I had beef carpaccio for starter, reindeer with mushroom and potatoes for... More

We have eaten here couple of times before and enjoyed it a lot. The food and service has been great quality. This time everything was different. We had the tasting menu. Our young waitress hardly knew the dishes or wines. Still the food was the biggest disappointment. Everything was served just lukewarm and the menu lacked thought/ idea/catch (punainen lanka)....

Food was really good. Local food, traditional dishes, done in a modern way. Service very professional, with good knowledge of wines, etc. Maybe a bit formal and cold for my taste though. Restaurant is very quiet and intimate, excellent for a romantic evening.

Masuuni is one of the restaurants (and the most upmarket) in the Sokos Ilves hotel. As such it probably mostly used by business travellers - as you'd expect, when we had dinner there on a Saturday night, the place was almost empty. The atmosphere is a bit soulless and corporate, but the food is pretty good with some local dishes... More

Masuuni is indeed a hidden gem... its located on the ground floor of Hotel Ilves, in the back. That might be one of the reasons its not so well known in Tampere, You can usually get a dinner reservation easily for the same evening. Of the four (?) restaurants in Ilves, Masuuni is the fine dining place. Its dark decor... More
