After popping in for a drink the night before we took our three children (2,5 & 8) and the four grandparents here for a family meal whist in Saariselka. It was fantastic. The rubarb cocktails were fab, the Grandads enjoyed the beer and the food was amazing. Great choices for the children, all of it very tasty. Afterward we had... More

Visited for lunch on our last day and was by far the best meal we had in Saariselka. Local dishes well prepared, served with a smile and there is a nice log fire. Also scores because not many restaurants were open Sunday.

Slopes are minimal but lovely, especially enjoyed skiing in the dark, slopes lit well and kids really enjoyed the snowpark and jump.

We had lunch twice in this restaurant during our weekend trip. The food was really tasty and the service was good.

This place has by far the most local feeling of the bar/pubs in town. The first time we popped in we just ate from their simple bar menu and the food was good. On a return visit we tried some of the food from their restaurant menu (and they were happy to serve it in the pub). Our Lappland deli... More

One of the expensive restaurants, but with the untasty plates from all the nice places near to Saariselka. Dont even bother with the reindeer. The deserts are the good ones.

Our hotel Receptionist recommended this restaurant, whose name means Grouse Nest in Finnish. Our waiter was friendly and responsive and explained that grouse originated in Lapland. He also taught us 'Kippis!' = Finnish word for Cheers! The place itself is cosy with Lappish decor and well-presented table settings. I had chanterelle soup followed by oven-cooked reindeer. Both were delicious. My... More

If you want to avoid eating in a hotel restaurant then the choices are limited in Saariselka. This is a great restaurant. It doesn't look up to much from the outside, but inside it is very rustic and has a really nice atmosphere - a lot nicer than a large hotel dining room. All three courses were perfectly cooked, nicely... More

We had lunch in here, but this is really a dinner restaurant with an evening menu only. Service was good and quite fast, the menu fairly interesting and the food good. This could be better would they not have slot machines/poker machines in the lobby, which create a more pub like image. The interior is quite dark, a little bit... More
