“a French jewel in Finland”
Reviewed 17 January 2012

the dining room of this restaurant lovingly recreates Alsace. It is a pleasure to walk into from the Tampere waterside. The menu offers a choice of Alsatian inspired dishes which we found well-cooked and presented. The service is friendly and the chef came and talked to us about our experience. The wines offered an appropriate accompaniment to the food. A jewel of a restaurant well worth a visit.

“Good expience”
Reviewed 11 November 2010

We ended up at WA at end of lunch time. Service worked out great, we got the feeling that the waiter was genuinly interested in us and she answered all our questions. We got what we wanted quickly and the food was delicious :) No fake half-way industrially made up stuff but great and simple food prepared from real ingredients.

“Okay but expected better”
Reviewed 3 November 2010

I had a four course dinner with friends at Wistub Alsace. I chose foie gras terrine, quail stuffed with goat cheese, cheese selection and chocolate pie.

All of the dishes seemed to lack some depth and flavour. The foie gras terrine tasted mostly fatty. The quail was ok, but I could not detect any sauce on the plate, although there should've been some. Also the goat cheese inside the quail looked rather unappetizing as I confused it with fat at first. The chocolate pie was rather basic. Surprisingly, the favorite of our party was a simple dessert of grilled peach with vanilla ice cream.

We also had the matched wines. The wine package was a bit disappointing as it seemed that there were only a few wines in the selection and the same wines appeared in the table for different courses. The banyuls served with the chocolate pie was excellent, though.
