Really good, well cooked food. It's a small village and this really is the only option for a nice evening meal (apart from the 2 hotels). Service is a little haphazard but the food is worth it.

We eat every time when we are at Luosto By Kerttuli. So this time too. But..we have bread first. One of that was like someone was eaten yet this bread..and this was no fresh this time. The food, meatballs were very good. The waiter was very kindly. We hopevthat next time all would be good.

Me and my boyfriend ate here four times and we really enjoyed every single meal. Especially we could recommen sautéed raindeer with mashed potatos, cranberries and pickled cucumber for the main course and frozen cranberries with hot caramel sauce for the dessert. Lovely atmosphere, kind service and delicious homemade food.

This place was recommended to us by our guide. We enjoyed it three times and we would go again if we could. Always a good sign when you see locals there as well. Food was very tasty, good wine selection as well. Nice atmosphere as well. Got hungry now....

Luosto doesn't have a lot of restaurants but we didn't even miss any dining options as Kerttuli is by far the best place we've dined in in Lapland. Was ten years ago when I last visited and still is. The portions are big and tasty, genuine Lappish style. There are many delicious options from traditional dishes to more trendy versions... More

Liked: Menu nro1 was perfect. Kuha and mushroom sauce was just heavenly and dessert creme brulee sweet and tasty. Dislike: It was hard to get seated since carpet was badly on away :)

Luosto is a tiny ski resort with only two hotels, a couple of souvenir shops and very few places to eat. But in spite of the very limited competition, this restaurant proved to be a nice little gem. The decor is absolutely beautiful, all warm and cosy and in full contrast to the snowy outside. The service was a perfect... More
