We were having lunch one Saturday afternoon with our friends from south. It was also an occasion to celebrate my birthday. In the beginning one unfortunate accident from a staff member. It was promptly apologized and we got extra drinks. The food (meat and chicken) and wine were good. A bit too much goat cheese on chicken. Portions are superfluous... More

We went there on Saturday evening and the place was crowded and a bit too loudy. But we got a table easily. At first we had caracoles, which were coverd with too much cheese. Trucha con gambas was ok, not delicious.Service was surpricingly slow. Overall this restaurant is absolutely overprized.

This Place has a sunny terrace with no wind, but it's also very hot because it is so much under the rounded environment.

Food was OK at best. Good but not great service. Hostess was a bit more concerned with eating dinner than seating. White fish was good but

We booked a table for 7 people on Saturday evening. The service was average. The salads were big enough and I had salad which was delicious. There are 5 side dishes to choose from, all delicious!

If you like steaks this might be your place. I'm not too found of them but they were ok. I have had better. A full bodied wines that I had there were more lighter that I thought. Excellent service!

Plenty of room for two walki-in looking for business lunch. No hurry, so we choose for the ala carte instead of short lunch menu. This is clearly steak restaurant, so go for the meat dishes. Some red wines by the glass to choose for, maybe one or two could be from higher end.

Very plain portions, good beef and tasty sauces and one sidedish ( fries, greensalad etc.) 30 euros thank you. Waiters are kind of originals, typical in Tampere. The restaurant has no view at all, facade is to market square that is empty in the evenings.
