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.

Dabbal is in the Lapland Hotel and is an excellent choice for dinner. In fact, during a 12 day stay in Tampere I went back four times for the reindeer special, which was always the most delicious and tender tenderloin I have ever had. It...literally melted in my mouth! Everything else there was also top notch. Highly recommended!More

This restaurant is situated in Lapland Hotel Tampere but this isn't a typical hotel restaurant. I think that this is a fine dining restaurant with reasonable prices. They offer specialties from Lapland but also stylish hamburgers etc. So this restaurant is suitable for kids, too,...and you don't need any formal wear. It is also possible to pre-order a surprise menu. We chose starters named Makupalat: reindeer, potato bread, smoky mayonnaise, lingonberry, whitefish, fennel, malt bread, dill mayonnaise, cold smoked salmon, potato pancake, French cream, red onion compote, pickled mushrooms, herb crispbread, spruce sprout mayonnaise, gran reserve coat cheese and cloudberry jam. If you ask, they can made them suitable for gluten free persons, too. We also got free amuse bouche: bread, spinach butter and drinkable carrot soup. My main course was Dabbal salad with fried fresh potatoes, roasted pine nuts, parmesan cheese, strawberries, pickled red onion, spruce mayonnaise, citron vinaigrette and Finnish squeaky cheese. My partner chose Dabbal burger. Everything was very delicious and our waitress Ida was very kind. We got our meals quickly. Besides, the atmosphere of the restaurant is very cozy. There are many interesting details from Lapland there. Thank you ever so much!More

What a place! Very tasty food, beatifully served, cosy, yet elegant atmosphere and most of all, excellent service. Our waitress Elisa was the top, friendly, professional and imperceptibly efficient. Strong recommendation. / Mikä paikka! Todella maistuvaa ruokaa kauniisti tarjoiltuna, 9kodikas, mutta kuitenkin elegantti ilmapiiri ja...ennen kaikkea erinomainen palvelu.

As restaurants were closed due corona restrictions, we ordered from the restaurant and ate in the room. We had reindeer burgers which were good. Unfortunately the smoke mayonnaise was overwhelming, so you couldn't find spruce cheddar taste. French fries were normal. Price was bit high.

After have asking to the receptionist of our hotel to suggest us a tipical restaurant in Tampere she addressed us to this amazing lounge bar and kitchen. The goal of my daddy was eating reindeer or elk and they fulfilled his wishes. The meat is...amazing and everything is cooked wonderfully. The service is great and the cost is correct, maybe the bottle of wine is a little bit expensive for our Italian friends but a visit there finally worths the hype!!More

The food you'll get served in that restaurant is absolutely amazing. I ate a burger and was amazed by the taste. Also the staff is very friendly and helpful.

Went there for a traditional Finnish Christmas lunch and hotel breakfast. I will highly recommend both, since they are both way above average.

Very nicely decorated place with friendly service. Prices are quite high. I had burger which did look great but taste wasn’t worth of price. Menu is quite limited but there is also few interesting options. I would had reindeer but side dishes were not to...my taste so ended up burger which was wrong choice clearly.More

I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and ate dinner here on 2 of them. although the a la carte menu is good, we chose the set Dabbal menu one night and the Fell menu the next. Both were of a very high quality....I look forward to eating here again.More

If you are looking for a taste of both inventive and traditional Lapland cuisine come here! The taster starter was Devine with new tastes to our palate (although a bit challenging to split up for two people without deconstructing). Reindeer filet and fish we're cooked...to perfection! Service was quick, helpful, and caring.More

The restaurant, part of the Lapland hotel, is lovely. Nicely decorated, not too big, and most important, a good menu. Most items are originally from Lapland, and much of it is smoked. The food is fresh, and very well prepared. It tastes yummy. Service is...excellent, fast and friendly.More

I could've imagine the river running and fisher catching me the Rautu. I tasted the bonfire and woods, it took me right to Laplands scenery. Thanks for good Service, although we came just before closing..

We spent our New Years Eve at Dabbal and had a great 3 course Dinner. The food was inspired by Lapland and typical finnish groceries. The dining area is well furnished and inviting. Its not very low in price but if you want to try...the taste of Lapland we would highly recommend DabbalMore

This is a hotel-restaurant belonging to Lapland hotels. Although there was only a limited bistro menu available at that time, there were just about enough choices. The restaurant focus is in Lapland inspired meals. Most of us took, however, a burger, some a vege burger...like myself. This burger came with a falafel tasting beef in brioche bun with the other usual ingredients, like tomato and mayo. Aside there was friers and ketchup. The bun had been grilled so it brought a bit of delicious smoky aroma as well. So, food was good, drinks were good, service was excellent, prices are reasonable and the restaurant atmosphere is nice, modern and relaxing (it was not a busy night). We had a good time there.More
