Exquisite food and flawless service. It's not a cheap place but it's great value for money. Unique and creative food. All the dishes were no less than amazing.

Tampella has an excellent location next to Tammerkoski. We visited on a February evening, which meant that the terrace was naturally impossible to use. Besides, we had difficulties when entering the restaurant: the road is slighly downhill and it was icy and very slippery. The...restaurant is situated in old industrial premises, which have been modified into a simple and elegant restaurant. The menu offers a sufficient number of choises. The Finnish names are probably connected to some previous remarkable persons or places. Perhaps the next menu could contain a line or two to describe this connection. The courses have been prepared with many unfamiliar incredients probably aiming at fine-dining. Personally I enjoyed the oxtail starter. Other courses were also tasty but not as memorable. The service was carried out without any hurry or delay but with quite a many "Everything okay?" or "Did you like it?" inquiries.More

We were lucky to have table without reservation, early Saturday, but almost full. Selection is limited, but food was really tasty.

As soon as we entered the restaurant I noticed that it was almost full and quite noisy. We were greeted by a young man who said almost nothing and was borderline rude. He took us to our table. We were a group of 8 friends...and we were seated next to a party of 20 people. We sat in the far corner with nice views of the river. However, the brick and glass walls made the acoustic terrible. The party of 20 persons was extremely loud and most of the time we could not hear each other speak. We commented to the waiter and she said that she would open up the glass walls but it did not help. She did not ask the other guests to respect our dinner experience. The hay smoked salmon starter lacked in taste but the lamb main was delicious. The wine pairing was good as well. The prices are quite high compared to the dish sizes. The noise was unbearable and therefore I will not be returning nor recommending this restaurant. I want to enjoy my dinner without excess noise and be able to talk to my companions.More

A lovely restaurant. Beautiful interior, right next to the river. Food was very good. Classy presentation and tasty. A fine dining experience. Of course, table by the window gave a beautiful view of the river. Service very efficient and very friendly. Lovely. Not cheap dining...but a lovely one nonetheless. It was wonderful to walk outside around the dam area which was most scenic.More

Basic food, lacking taste and salt. The teryaki salmon could have been fron a lunch list, unsurprisinig and tasteless. For the price (27,50) it was a truedissapointment. The suggested matching wine would have needed a better dish to pair with.. Service was nice.

Interesting menu having dishes with mediterranian and asian twist which was lurying us in. The place and service were nice, but the food wasn't. As a starter I took ribs, little quite nice looking dish, but total blend. The meat was dry and needed both...sweet and salty flawours, or actually all spices. The salmon chevitse was ok'ish, beautifull, but the check the amount of lemon juice, there was some extra. Pepper steak didn't surprise at all, basic dish missing some salt. But unfortunately the duck which was suppose to be crispy, was cheawy and missing all the spices. It felt that the restaurant was trying to collect all those trendy twists, but the kitchen didn't quite understand how to mix everything, producing nice looking plates but missing the target.More
