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

I booked a table for us around week ago of mother's day. What a lunch! Amazing... One of the best meal, again, what I had. Service was calm and friendly, very good knowledge about wines. We started our celebration with cava, I took also very good German Riesling with main. Starter buffet was excellent; salads, steamed fish, marinated crab, grilled... More

Best Finnish restaurant ever. The food was great, the service was great and what’s hindering from getting a full score was that it was unfortunately a very slow pace during the dinner. Ok, we were eight at the table but the restaurant was filled up to 1/3 so no excuses of a full place or too busy in the kitchen.... More

Fresh local food in Tampere, Holiday trip to Tampere wasn't looking that promising food-wise until we stumbled ourselves somehow into Masuuni restaurant. Seems not so many people are into supporting fresh local food option, or whatever since it was quiet there and all those trashy large restaurant chains (Amarillo, Fransmanni) in same building were full of hillbillies and their ugly...

The service was attentive but not intrusive. The food was outstanding in taste, quality, and presentation. My waitress was very knowledgeable about each dish. The pace was leisurely and relaxed. The restaurant is in the Sokos hotel. The prices are rather high, so be prepared. The breads are terrific. I began with a starter of Kyyttö veal terrine with Finnish... More

Simply, this is one of the best restaurants in Tampere and may I say, imho, quite well priced. Unfortunately they were closed this week but I had a pleasure to visit them in September. It was a quiet weeknight and I had heard good things about this place. I was also staying in hotel Ilves so on my final night... More

Have eaten here with my boyfriend couple of times and both of them were very good experiences! You could not believe that Masuuni in the first floor of Ilves hotel and S-etukortti chain restaurant could offer quality fine dining. Perhaps those are the reasons why you can easily get a table for the same evening also in weekends even though... More

This is one available restaurant in hotel Ilves. You should pick this one instead of others. Located near the hotel reseption. The lobby voices did not disturb us. Dining room was spacious and well decorated. For starters we had cold-smoked salmon in two ways which included caesar salad. No surpises, but very delicious. Main course was lamb entrecote. Perfectly cooked... More
