Lucky to have mussels on a Thursday night

First dinner to be in Rovaniemi, staff there is attentive and friendly. Normally they only sell mussel on a Friday, we are lucky to be able to get it on a Thursday evening. Good there are nice, and price are average.

I've eaten here for many years and have always found the food to be great, and the staff to be very helpful and friendly. There is also a big screen for watching the football in the bar area. For me this is definitely a place to visit when im visiting Rovaniemi.

Found this treasure via TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed. Good service, diverse menu both for adults and kids, nice ambiance. The food arrived very fast, the staff spoke good English and Swedish and everything was delicious.

We went to this restaurant because it was close to the hotel but then it was a nice surprise. The ambience was really warm. The service good. After several meals with reindeer and salmon I wanted to try something different so I chose the chicken in pepper sauce and it was delicious. They anyway also have lappish food. We had... More

Highly recommend a visit if you're in the area. Nice atmosphere and absolutely great service from a warm, friendly staff. This menu is French inspired, serving international cuisine, however, we stuck with the Finnish specialty menu and were not dissappointed, the food was delicious. I had the reindeer tenderloin, my wife, the sauted reindeer, and kids, the meatballs. All were... More

Dined few times here during my stay in the hotel. Service each time was very professional and kind in very Finnish subtle way. From what I overheard from other tables, seems that most if not all of the staff speaks English quite fluently. Food was good every time and came up reasonably fast. Everything was solid Fransmanni quality. Absolutely a... More

I echo several reviews from earlier this summer. I ate here twice: a light lunch, and a really excellent dinner (chicken fillet with provencal vegetables, beautifully cooked.) Wine, dessert, coffee also very good. Price remarkably reasonable, given generally high prices in Finland. Service both friendly and efficient. I would recommend this restaurant very highly.
