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

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...
