Very tasty dinner and friendly service, you feel like home. The atmosphere is unique. During weekends the reservation is needed.

Very nice and intimate small restaurant with a nice relaxed atmosphere. Steak and fish were excellent and the preset menu was well put together. Highly recommend you take the short walk from the city center if you are visiting Tampere.

We had a late lunch in this cozy little place - being practically the only customers on a gray Friday afternoon we felt almost like being at somebody's home, drinks and food served by old friends. The fried perch was crisp and perfect and boneless - fish doesn't get better than that. Unfortunately, we had to skip the desserts this... More

Had a nice time here with another couple and we ate well. The owner came to welcome us straight in the beginning and we had really good service thru out the visit. They had some ingredients which were sold out as they try to keep everything as fresh as possible, but that is understandable. All and all would recommend this... More

I had the fixed meal and the fish platter was outstanding and for dinner the fish and my date had the steak. This is my favorite restaurant in... More

When we entered the restaurant we were cordially welcomed by the owner. You immediately realise that this is not a place for people who like to have a quick bite. The owner passed several times our table to have a small chat with us and we even started little conversations with the people on the table next to us. The... More

Very nicely decorated restaurant with a nice menu. The portions are not too big but you won't need to go to McDonald's afterwards. ☺️ The restaurant is not very big so reservation is recommended.

I'm not a fish lover, and have never been a fan of salmon, but... the smoked salmon I enjoyed at Heinatori was delicious! I went with business colleagues -- some of whom frequent the restaurant, ad our service was fabulous. From the appetizer to the dessert, it was one of the best meals I've enjoyed, and definitely the best I've... More

This restaurant has it all. Food is exxcellent, interior/ exterior of the restaurant is very nice and and service is excellent. It has great Finnish season menu's and local foods from local suppliers. One of the best things I like in this restaurant specially during summer is that it has a great outside area where you can eat and drink... More
