I suppose this is the best restaurant in Tampere. My husband took the 6 course tasting menu, while the rest of us (we were four) chose dishes from the a la carte menu. I would suggest to go with the tasting menu - the dishes from the a la carte were just a tiny notch bigger than dishes on the... More

Location is optimal but the decoration is average. Food was good (menu 68€) but the suggested wine pairing didn't match for every course. Olso the service was maybe a little "cold". Overall, way too expensive for the given experience.

We really enjoyed our 6 course dinner. Even though the food was very good I'm giving the restaurant a four for the overall experience. Portions were a bit too small and the ambience of the place didn't somehow feel very welcoming. The decor was also a bit outdated for my taste. But then again the target group of the restaurant...

C is small and very welcoming as the staff is top notch. The food is very very good, using the local ingredients and nature's more unusual materials to create taste explosions of unique proportions. The wine pack and the knowledge of the staff supports perfectly the experience. Perfect for celebration, good couples dinner, or business dinner.

Restaurant C is probably the best restaurant in Tampere - at least it is in top 3 list. Prepare yourself for ultimate culinary tour. The Menus are just great combinations of excellent dishes from the local ingradients. The wines are chosen for the list by world class sommelier and they "play" well with the food. This place is not cheap... More

Deserts well executed but not... More

Me and my husband visited this restaurant while staying in Tampere. The food was prepared using local and seasonal ingredients and the flavours were truly a tribute to the scandinavian/finnish kitchen. The food was delicious. Before the starters we got a few greetings from the chef. The staff and especially the sommelier were experts in their field and found no... More

Had the suggestion menu with accompanying wines. Every course was just brilliantly executed, so intense in flavor utilizing local and seasonal ingredients ie. mushrooms, pumpkins etc. Amazing experience.
