Good place for a tasty lunch

Needed a place to eat after the karhunkierros Trail hike. Not too many restaurants were open, but we were lucky to choose Piste. The lunch was excellent - daily fish was fresh and well prepared. Service was friendly and quick.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

did the job for a quick bite after being on slopes but not very exciting, it is upstairs from disco, staff are very welcoming, view is good, but limited fare, great for a bowl of soup or burger.

This is a ski cafe & restaurant under the slopes, at the edge of the Rukavillage. Cafe, hot chocolate and drinks. Great views to the slopes. Crowded with russians celebrating new year. After ski with dj.

This is very convenient cafe to have lunch or after ski break for hot drinks while you are skiing, however, it has its drawbacks. The food is ok, but overpriced for the quality. I mean, you can get satisfied, but you would need to order the most expensive dishes. There is also a buffet lunch (like soup) but these taste... More

We visited Restaurant Piste on July 22nd, 2015. The view was very nice (Ruka Fell scenery). Our lunch meals were also good. Unfortunately the customer service was rude and impolite. I usually give some tip. This time I didn't do that.

This restaurant has its enormous sundeck and (quite) great artists and after skis going for it. It was tidy and our group of 10 people got to sit together after shuffling some tables around. The waiter was stressed (understandably, with lots of people in the slopes and restaurants during Easter) and made fun of my choice of beverage and didn't... More

I had eaten here a few years earlier and in my opinion the food was of a higher quality back then. Now the restaurant served burgers and such for lunch and for after-ski. The burger was ok, but I've had much better ones elsewhere. The fries was not very tasty. The service was quite fast.
