A Cupf of coffee or fast food during visit to Arctic circle

Just a break, a cup of coffee or fast food? Here can see many people heading to the south or north. This is not far from Rovaniemi. Facilities are clean, and service ok, but somehow I would like more if there more thought details instead of fake. The prices are tourist prices, so get get the same... read more

My wife and I went for a late dinner on our first night in Rovaniemi while staying at the Santa Claus village. My wife had the village menu which was not very appetizing for her and did not match the description in the menu. Her arctic cod was very undercooked and the reindeer was unimpressive (we had much better home... More

The food here was very tasty at dinner time. Roast meats with potatoes and turnip or roast chicken, and reindeer sausage were on the menu. Not elegant food, but very palatable. Alcohol is very expensive, but one would expect this in a restaurant in Finland. There was a decent buffet for starters and dessert. Breakfast was not as good though.... More

We ate here several times on a recent trip to the Santa Claus Village and were always happy. The menu is small and the dishes simple but that's all we needed and everything tasted great. Try to get there on reindeer sausage night (Sunday I think), they're fantastic!!

Located within the heart of the 'Santa Arctic Circle Village' tourist complex on the E75 road out from Rovaniemi this place is useful in that the souvenir shop attached is open until 11pm and the restaurant until 9pm so if you find the shops in Rouvaniemi itself closed (as most are on a Saturday after 5pm) but in need of...

This is really the only place to eat in Santa Claus Village so, while the food fills the whole, they don't need to make it a culinary experience to attract customers. I found the food expensive and of average quality and taste. By 2pm the buffet is very sad. P.S The toilets are really messy. Don't expect a culinary experience... More

In the Restaurant of the Christmas House in Santa Claus Village (called also Restaurant of Santa Claus Holiday Village) there is a nice and "normal" Finnish lunch buffet. The price is not too high given the tourism location. Staff is friendly. For a traveler it is good to know that in this restaurant (as in Finland in similar restaurant normally... More

Excellent food & service...though our first night service was bad, management quickly remedied that situation! Lots of reindeer on the menu & even a kids menu!
