Soon we also noticed this white Aston Martin in front of the restaurant. 

The staff of August von Trappe welcomed us and took good care of us.

They had a special table for us and the service was friendly, fast and first class. Every table had some playing cards on them according to Bond theme.

This restaurant – owned by Maestro Hans Välimäki – is very atmospheric and decorated with good taste, it is beautiful and we could hear Bond theme songs during the evening.

The cooks and the kitchen staff were busy and hard-working and did a good job with the Bollinger Spectre 007 dinner menu.

First we had two glasses of Bollinger Champagne, one for each (a´35 EUR) and it was excellent. The whole bottle price is 209 EUR. Later with the food we had red wine and water.

The menu (70 EUR) consisted of following dishes:

First we had oyster soup and it was absolutely delicious! 

Next one was scrambled eggs, caviar and truffle, that was fantastic!

After that, we had fish: turbot and Lillet sauce, and Lillet of course is a part of Vesper Martini. That tasted really good and was just ingenious!

Before the next dish we had classic Martini as an eatable version! How cool was that! Wow!

We had Finnish grilled lamb and peas as a main food and it was tasteful and very good!

Finally we had the dessert which was very fresh Mille Feuille that was awesome!

During the dinner we saw actors from Tampere, dressed with Bond style. The group is called Ark(k)ityypit and this was their first official show in that form. They talked with the diners and it was nice.
