Most of the Restaurants in Ruka center were closer during the time we wanted to have lunch. However, restaurant Piste was open and we were actually positively surprised with the place. Very tasty pasta and salad, fast and friendly service. Chocolate mousse desert very very good!

Good: close to slopes, excellent service. Mediocre: food. Bad: atmosphere and interior. Not my favorite hang in Ruka..

Visiting here every night was an absolute joy, The staff were brilliant and so helpful. They sat us in a different place every night and so obliging. The portions were good and even one night the chef cut a meal in half so we could enjoy all three courses!

A nice place overlooking the pistes to sit and while away the time for the skiers to get back. Lunch was nice with club sandwiches etc

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.

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.

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
