Great food experience from local ingredients where the service is also excellent. The new taste experiences were great.

We've heard good things, walked passed, but finally reserved a table. A menu plus the wine package; a very well thought through experience, sometimes on a wilder side and thus maybe not for everyone, but I totally loved it. Local ingredients, wild herbs, interesting combinations,...beutifully plated. Excellent.More

Worth every penny; great tastes, fresh & local, one of the best dinner experiences in Finland. Enough room between tables during COVID; feels comfortable

Very innovative food. We had a set menu with a wine package. Food quality was excellent, however, there were a couple of minor issues. Wine package matched the food nicely. Best food in Tampere at the moment!

We did have the 4 course menu Absolutely marvellous, super taste A lot of local Finnish products 👍 The wine recommendations for each menu was good, except the last. Only minus is that they do not ask if the wine is fine with you, or...you could taste it. Like in our case the last wine would newer have been choose . Now we had to order and pay for an other class of wine If this would be different the place would be top of topMore

By far, the best restaurant experience I've had in Finland (and perhaps anywhere else). The food was a combination of unique flavors mixed with traditional Finnish cuisine. Literally the best new potato I've ever had. Not to mention the raw strawberry - trust me, you'll...never want to eat a ripe strawberry again. The food is certainly fine-dining, but the atmosphere is light, relaxed and fun. Our server was attentive, but not overbearing and his descriptions of the food were as good as the meals themselves. The owners are incredible, too. We had a slight issue with our check and they corrected it immediately without any questions. Kajo is a must-visit restaurant for locals of Tampere and tourists alike. 11 out of 10 would recommend.More

I have enjoyed a full evening menu in Kajo two times, and the third one is in the books. On the basis of these two visits Kajo has clearly risen to the absolute top of my fine dining experiences ever. The service is warm an...attentive, and the menu has been crafted to my vegan wishes with care – rethought out thoroughly, not just tweaked fromn the existing menu. The long evenings are two diverse to dissect here, but I just want to mention a few gems: the potato-tomato main course, full of flavour and a surprisingly good combination; the potato "doughnuts" dipped in onion gel; Jerusalem artichoke with pear – a first!; the succulent celeriac tartar; the swede spaghetti – and the swede ice cream! These good people are artists without becoming pretentious. The wine selection is to die for.More

Like always, less would have been more. 2/6 courses on menu were okay, even tasty but too many did’t work. Too many really fancy looking things on a plate, but all tastes did not work together or were too complicated. 5/6 portions were lukewarm -...we were not sure should they be cold or hot. Wines were quite expensive and not that expectional. Not worth the money. Disappointment.More

Amazing experience. Unusual combination of tastes but matching so well together. Great atmosphere and very friendly service. Highly recommended.
