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

We stopped by here for a few drinks after a snow mobiling trip all day and ended up staying for dinner, the bar/restaurant has an extensive authentic Finnish menu and the food was first rate, we enjoyed arctic salmon, escargots, fillet of reindeer and all were superb and a very high standard, the price including a good few drinks was...

One of the better restaurants (non high end). Good service and fine dishes, fish, reindeer and steaks. Go there for a decent meal for a fair price. Nothing fancy.

The restaurant is located in the center of Saariselka. When you enter, it looks like a pub, but they actually have quit a nice restaurant area on the right side. They have the best salmon soup in town, but be careful: they serve it between 2-4pm sharp (we missed it once because we got there at 4:10). There is a... More

Entering Teerenpesä gives you a mixed feeling since it's a restaurant and a late-night bar/pub (open till 04?), but don't be fooled by this. The restaurant is on the other side and the bar on the other - and they do even call themselves "the village pub", so no need to wear your suit and tie here.... Been here several... More

The food here takes centre stage. Our group had a wide variety of dishes from the menu and everyone was left satisfied. I can highly recommend the Salmon and King Prawn as a main and the Goats Cheese Salad entre was amazing. It also helps that the staff are really friendly - that is true for all of Saariselka. The...
