“If you love beer and sausages, this is your place”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

I've dined here many times and tried out lot of the menu items, so here's my conclusion.

Service has always been very friendly and atmosphere is very nice. It's always a pleasure to dine here. They do offer a great selection of their own beers - and they are excellent in quality. Beers are matched to the menu items - and of the suggestions I've tried, they accompany the dishes very well.

Most of the starters are very tasty, of the main courses I would recommend taking the assorted sausage pan. Other than that, some of the meat dishes are also very good - but here I'll make a similar statement than found in other reviews, some of the main dishes may be a small disappointment compared to the nice starters.

So as a total experience and value, this is definitely worth the visit if you're in Tampere.

“Great for beer, average food.”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

Service was friendly, beer selection very good. The starter beer cheese soup was very promising but for some reason the main courses did not live up to the expectations.

“Go if you're near”
Reviewed September 2, 2012 via mobile

Plevna's a Tampere classic and if you're into the whole microbrew and sausage fest thing then you must not miss this one. The portions are big (the mains will do the job) and delicius but fine dining it ain't. Never been there at night as all of the occasions have been in'n'out while passing through the city. What I can say about Plevna for sure is that you're in for a wholesome, no-nonsense sturdy German lunch with a pint of weissbier.

“Great beer, good food, not so great service”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

I love beer in Plevna and food is pretty good also, but service is not so great. If you sit outside, you have to go in to order your food and pay it in advance! The food is good, but there will be no waiter to ask if you need anything or if the food was OK. I guess they do not care if they got their money ahead of time :-) Next time in Tampere I think I will choose another place.

“Hearty”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

I can't take stars away for popularity -- so bear in mind this place can fill up and get noisy. But maybe that's part of the atmosphere -- people bring it with them. This is a brewery pub, which means you'll be drinking the pub's own brews if you wish. And they are good, they truly are. As for the food, it does feel hearty, sort of German, central European, with Finnishness too. Think of big portions of sausage and potatoes. Of course there's much more to it than that, but that's the gist, though it's not just a 'man' place. But check the Plevna website, there are salads and soups, and while the children's menu is the standard meatball/chicken/salmon and chips limited options, salad and fruit come with it as that's how ideology is put into practice in Finland (and the kids actually look forward to the salady bits rather than leave them there). If this would be labelled a gastro pub and you enjoy that sort of thing, you really should visit, because it's unique and the fayre is to a satisfyingly high standard. For its size and compared to other cities in Finland, Tampere has some of the best, most numerous and most variable eatery options you can find. This is one of those special places that has pretty much carved out its own niche, and if the niche suits, eat it!
