“Staff Food and service excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013 via mobile

Staff extremely attentive and professional . Food excellent without fault. Location very central to the village easy to find and walk to from anywhere in saariselka. Reindeer fillet is unbelievable. Be aware medium cooked steak here comes back as uk rare, but quality allows this to ride!

“Great atmosphere, service and food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012 via mobile

Six of us had dinner there and were unanimous that this was our favourite restaurant in Saariselka! From the sumptuous steaks to the fresh salmon, the food was not only substantial but beautifully presented. Very friendly service. Highly recommended. At Finnish prices this is the quality and service you'd expect.

“Great reindeer filet!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2012

My husband ordered your basic reindeer stew (poronkäristys) but I optioned for the filet. Asked for it to be 'medium-minus' or rare. One of the best meals I've ever had, actually. Done perfectly, and the waiter told me it's because I ordered it right - it should always be done quite rare. We went back the next night so my husband could have that, and I ended up eating it again.

“A very good place to eat!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

There was only one vegetarian option on the menu but it was delicious. My husband (non-vegetarian) was also very pleased with his choice. The prices are high but no worse than anywhere else in Saariselka. My only criticism was that the meals took a long time to come but we weren't in a rush and the dishes were beautifully presented so were worth the wait. The waiting staff were excellent.
This bar is also good for a cheap lunchtime snack of fries and chilli mayonnaise.
