We popped in here whilst staying for a few days at Hotel Ivalo just a few minutes walk away. We had nice tea and coffee plus a cake after shopping at the supermarket just next door. Very convenient and staff friendly.

Always giving nice service and nice food.. Location is centric and you can take nice cup of cappuccino after shopping because it’s located next to the supermarket

We ate here twice, once for lunch and then for dinner. Both times we were so impressed by the service, so friendly! And the food was great too, fresh and tasty with generous portions. Thoroughly recommend!

Even if the location is not something wow, the food is just great. Friendly and attentive staff. The burgers are one of the best I ever had. Been here couple of times and will return for sure. Also buffet available. Wifi for free.

A nice location with a good variety of the menu and very tasty food. Good quality-price rate. Take in consideration that is pretty crowded at lunch time so it might take a while before you eat. Really great burgers!

Coming back from out tour at Wild Spirit Park we stopped here for lunch and we ordered 2 reindeer sandwiches, 2 potatoes, a beer and a coke (€ 44,70). A little bit expensive but worth it and keep in mind that life in Finland is...More
