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.

Went there for my wife’s birthday. Service was very friendly. I ordered the steak from the menu as medium. The steak was stringy and tough. The sauce was greasy. The sides were indifferent. My wife ordered the duck salad. She did not like it all...not the taste nor the structure. We eat relatively often at restaurants - this was the worst food experience in years. Definitely not recommended.More

I went with my husband and a friend of his to this friendly place for dinner after their competition during the WMAC 22. They each had a steak with fries and were really happy with their choice. Me on the other hand was thrilled -...the duck salad was magnifique!! The chilled white wine with it was a great match too, Do visit!More

Kattila changed owners in late 2019, but as the world was turned upside down, it was only now that I managed to check out the new place. The decor and the concept remains basically the same. Vegan food is still available every day, but perhaps...not that extensively as before. I had a nice vegan veggie ball, pumpkin and tsatsiki salad. Well worth the money, and a good light lunch.More

Kattila is a nice place for an informal dinner. The list is short, but even then we, three mature ladies with varying tastes, found a three-course dinner for ourselves. All the dishes were delicious and the prices modest. The only thing tp complain is the...fact that both the tartar and the duck salad were too winegary. Subtle contrasts are fine, but the natural taste of food should not be masked.More

We had dinner at Bistro Kattila and were very happy with the food, service and milieu. The food was of good quality and the wines went well with the portions. Definitely worth a visit!

We were two couples looking for a bistro dinner on our long journey home. Kattila seemed quite promising. The menu was thin, that we knew. But the dishes were not what we expected, The duck salads were quite standard on the greenside, but the duckmeat...was shredded, dark and dry, not fresh, juicy slices of breast filet as ususally. The pike Wallenberg was also dryish, on an unexciting bed. The Iberico pork Pluma lacked taste and was served with undistinguishable side components. On a Saturday evening many people came to the door in vain, so you better reserve a table for this experience.More

One of the best lunch compared to its price! They have an offer of lunch menu that contains starter, main course and dessert. The price of all of that is just 15 €. I had sunroot soup, chicken and pannacotta. They seem to have wine...variety of wines and this restaurant would be also perfect place to have glass of wine.More

Nice little restaurant in a central location. The menu is quite short, but there is enough to choose from. The food was very good, and what is unusual, the wine prices were decent. Service was very friendly and efficient, a good experience.

We first tried to have lunch at Tampella but they preferred keeping nice tables reserved (=empty) for 2 hours rather than serving hungry and paying guest so we came ex tempore here. Nice experience: Napue gin starter drink, melting cheese starter plate, great beef (and...salmon for wife) and even a tasty dessert, all with good wines and friendly service!More

Brilliant lunch & fast +friendly service This is a brilliant small restaurant in a city centre. Flavors of the dishes are always good, this time had small salad , meatloaf filled with mushrooms & smashed potatoes and red wine sauce. Dessert included white chocolate etc....At lunch time they do not take reservations, but for the evenings they do. Place is quite booked, so remember that and be on time for lunch...More
