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

Christmas House provided the half board food for our stay in the holiday village here and even though I wouldn't call it cuisine it was definitely good quality. Breakfast was a choice of croissant, fruit, yoghurt, berries, german deli, bread, cereal or wieners/eggs. Dinner was a variety of lovely meatball/salmon/chicken dishes with plenty of veg and a kids option. Lovely... More

It was great food for a reasonable price of around 10 € that the Christmas House Restaurant offered us. The buffet included three different dishes beneath one vegetarian as well as a salad bar. It is really comprehensive if you think that water is included as well as a cup of tea or coffee. Like always with buffets it has... More
