We had late lunch with friends and children. There were 3 courses on the lunch menu but not any veggie version. Service was ok but we we had to for example move tables by our selves. It took way too long for our foods to arrive. Food was although good.

Long time since we visited the place! Unfortunately noticed that the quality has gone down! The menu is shorter and at least the taste of wood was no longer good at all.

Me and a friend just wanted a good meal after spending a few hours in downtown Tampere and so we decided on this place. We didn't have a reservation but were seated quickly. Service was fast but I was a little bit disappointed that our beers were lukewarm (I expect the service to come back and say just that and... More

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.
