We both had the "menu of the day", 4 amazing courses with just the right amount of food. Good, clear flavours. Super seasonal which we love. We happened to be there on a quiet night so we got to enjoy some extra attention which was extremely pleasant for the whole experience. 6/5 for service 4/5 for food. Definitely will return. Definitely can recommend. Wine pairings were amazing..! Just go! No bullsh*t

Great food with on style, service excellent, nice cozy place. A little pricy. Reserve table especially weekends but also during week. Menu changes, kitchen decides what you eat

Out for a fancy fine dining dinner.
I got the vegetarian menu while the other 2 people got the normal meat menu, so we could see the whole deal.
As someone who is very passionate about cooking and using interesting flavors, especially in the vegetarian section, the dinner for me was a complete let down..

The vegetarian dishes were Very bland and one-note throughout the whole experience.. No balance within the dishes, and no exciting variance between meals... The main trend throughout was "some mushy smoked root vegetable with a pickled side". So it just tasted smoky and sour. Nothing salty, nothing spicy, nothing sweet...Just smoky and sour, the whole dinner (even the dessert)... Could have at least played with different textures, but even that was lacking..
The whole thing was just desperately begging for variety.

It is Very clear that the chef is not very knowledgeable about vegetarian food, as it requires extensive specialization and experience. Just removing the meat and throwing in another root vegetable as a substitute isnt gonna cut it.

My suggestion? If you want to try new exciting vegetarian dishes, I recommend just going to either a specialized vegetarian restaurant or a restaurant that uses Asian flavors (they tend to get it right.).

This prix fixe menu restaurant is a wonder. The servers are warm and funny. They’re really helpful.

The food is extraordinary. 2 of the dishes are among the best things I have eaten—mussels with custard, apples, horseradish and dill. Soup of smoked cod with cream and pickled cucumber and sliced Radish. All the other dishes were quite fine and filled with exceptional flavors, in particular the lingonberry dessert worth caramel , spruce shoots, rose petals, white chocolate and sour cream flavored ice cream.

I would travel back to Tampere in order to eat here again

Great experience of fine dining with predefined menu - giving decisions to the hands of staff. Nice relaxed atmosphere with very friendly service, and without white tablecloths. Had a 6 course menu with selected wines. The kitchen style could be described as experimenting, some of combinations and ingredients being very innovative. In this time they really succeeded with some of courses, like the desert which was truly good without being any way near of too sweet. Some courses a bit plain. No doubt that the food will receive different opinions. Best is to come with open mind and without expectations of traditional dining. Selected and offered wines were overall good, though they have some better in closet - point of improvement here. Stuff is quite far away from traditional fine dining with a nice stories, good humour and ready to discuss with you - in short they succeeded in creating the extra twist in the dining experience. Worth to visit, but with open mind and relaxed feeling.
