Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

food - quite compelling, high quality wine - very good selection, excellent recommendations Service - really good and friendly Location - easy to miss from outside, inside has some Eastern Germany charm, so more investment into food than into to interior design

Few years, max 4, ago visited and worth all the pennies stretched in our wallets. We ordered the main course and the waitress came bringing us new dish for five different occasions. And each time a long poem of storytelling for each dish. As my...late best friend said, when describing him this evening at C. Said: the more they explain the dish, the more expensive it will be! True as always, he was again. But worth every dime. Recommend!More

I can highly recommend C. This is the best of the two real fine dining restaurants in Tampere. The servings are tasty and beautiful. This restaurant is an excellent choice if you want to enjoy tasty and beautiful food with perfectly paired wine. The sommelier...is fantastic. C also provides delicious and imaginary non-alcoholic pairing with local ingredients. You should definitely book four hours of your schedule and try the "seurustelumenu". It is worth it. Olemme puolisoni kanssa vuosien varrella usein nauttineet C:n seurustelu menut, emmekä ole kertaakaan pettyneet. Välillä olemme kokeilleet kotikaupunkimme muita ns. fine dining paikkoja mutta C on kyllä ehdoton ykkönen. Annokset ovat maukkaita, monipuolisia ja uskomattoman kauniita. Raaka-aineet huippuhyvää lähituotantoa. Palvelu toimivaa, mahdollistaen silti rauhassa antimista nauttimisen. Paikka on siisti ja rento. C:n sommelier on todellinen ammattilainen, viinipaketit on rakennettu taidokkaasti. Erityistä C:ssä on myös holiton juomapaketti, joka on kekseliäs ja aivan täydellinen.More

C is hard to recognise from street and it is meant to be like that, when in and the selection of dishes flow one by one to your table, it is great fireworks of tastes the chef has created artistically that positively surprises everyone. Pricey...but eorth of it!More

We had nice dinner with 6 courses and still in addition to this and other 3 small courses from the kitchen. This time we did not choose wine package thought we drank nice Pinot Noir from Gumpolskirchen, Austria - well chosen... or good recommendation. Really...good and friendly service.More

We’ve been here twice before (2015, 2017) and both times were mind-blowing. Sadly, this time did not stand up to the very high standards set by those prior experiences, not by a long haul. It was by no means bad, just nowhere near the adventure,...elegance, and perfect balance of exquisite tastes “exploding” on your palate on each and every bite that we had once come to associate with Ravintola C. Hopefully this was just one of those days, when things don’t quite click.More

We spent four hours here tasting the most innovative, perfect small dishes with wines. Everything was first class: the atmosphere, look, taste, staff. Our first - but definitely not the last - time here. Worth the wait, and worth the money. We felt really welcome...and there is nothing they could have done better. By far the best restaurant in Finland - of the ones that I know of.More

Food was tasty and delicious, as well as well prepared with good taste combinations. Got the 6 course tasting menu and wine pairing, but unfortunately, while the wines themselves were good, the pairings with the dishes could have been a lot better. Additionally, while the...place had good gins, which we took for appetizers, I would have preferred to have some more spices in the gin and tonic. Lastly, while the food was delicious, it was a pity that the restaurant fell for the Finnish/Nordic cultural habit of serving the food and wines way too quickly after our previous plates, leaving no free chill-out time and time to finish our wines before next ones were poured.More

All the other positive reviews are 100% correct. No point in repeating everything here. I have often been disappointed in Finnish "fine dining" places but not here. Superb food made using local ingredients, really friendly and professional service and as many have mentioned, the wine...pairings are brilliant. Last but not the least, it is all reasonably priced, including the wines, which is not easy to find in Finland. Hope to visit again soon!!!More

Restaurant C is now 10 years old and it is most innovative and most creative fine dining restaurant in Tampere. It is amazing how the wines match with the food. Sometimes the chef is maybe too hippie with his innovations but every time the tasting...dinner menu has been better and better than before visiting. I think C should have atleast one michelin starMore

We had 6 course dinner with wines. Service was excellent but the cuisine still needs to develop. The approach to utilize local ingredinents is valuable. However, the plates are not creating always wholeness of its parts. Neither the dinner worked as a symphony of plates...and wines.More
