“Another Tampere classic”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

This is a timeless Tampere classic. Located slightly outside of the city centre in the quiet neighborhood you don't probably stumble here by accident. Smallish and popular so reservation is almost always needed, even for lunch. Like said, this a classic, one could even say institution in Tampere restaurant scene. Unfortunately it's not entirely a positive thing. The menu is from the 70s and could be upgraded. The main thing here is steaks in different forms and they are rather good if you like steaks. But nowadays there should be other options too. My opinion they are holding too much to traditions and world around is changing. This might was fine dining of 70s Finland in small country town but it's not today that. Now it's a steak house with decent steaks and worth going for that but also a place waiting some renewal.

“Traditional since the 70's”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

This is probably the first restaurant I ever visited already in the late 70's. The russian-influenced menu and atmosphere has remained largely unchanged since then. A starter soup or salad and post-dinner coffee or ice cream is included with the dishes. Vegetarian options are rather limited. The restaurant location is not the best possible.

“Nice and cosy restaurant a short walk from the centre”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

The oldest dinner restaurant in Tampere. Good food, decent sized portions. About 10-15 minutes walk from the railway station. The English menu seems to be available on their netsite too, for those who´re interested. A good place for business lunches as well as family occasions (prebooking is advisable).

“Good times with great steaks”
Reviewed April 19, 2012

A local favourite, despite the rather steep prices (20-30 euros). Dishes are big enough to satisfy and you usually get a complimentary starter. I recommend the soup. While the decor is very outdated, it does give the restaurant a comfortable, carefree feel.
