Came here with my girlfriend and ordered ribs "best ribs in Tampere". Service was nice and food came in decent time. Portions were big but frenchfries were not that good. Ribs itself tasted nice, but maybe little more punch would be nice. Wine was also good but expensive. Two sets of ribs, one beer and one wine total 65 euro.

I like the taste of "homecooked meal " - I was not sure what I wanted to eat that day, I saw the list of the dishes and I decided to check it out. and I was pleasantly surprised. Nice atmosphere.

Wild boar might not be to everybodys taste but few dishes are available other than boar. Dissapointed with portion sizes. Deserts are served in big plates/bowls and make small portions to look even smaller. Lacking imagination for making food look tasty. Basic and way way overpriced! Service friendly.

The food was ok and service also. There is nothing you can say that went wrong but there is also nothing to say "WOW" either.

Tried this place few times while I was staying longer time in Tampere. They serve mainly good sized meat portions - not too much for veggies. Couple lighter / smaller ones available aswell. It's quite pub-type place, name means "wild boar". Quality & imaginary of few portions of wild boar were nice. Ribs told to be best in town -... More

The taste of very tender and tasty wild boar, together with lingonberry, potatoes and vegetables is unforgettable. The restaurant has a rustic atmosphere and friendly staff.

Villiska was celebrating Oktoberfest, so we decidd to experience some German food. I had a schnitzel, which was served with processed bearnaisé sauce, cold potato mash and a spoonful of cold ratatouille-of-a-kind. BIG disappointment. My friend had a pork leg with the same mash and a couple of pickles, no dip or other trimmings whatsoever. When I remarked on the... More
