Friendly staff; warm, clean and comfortable space; simple, fresh and tasty food prepared very well. We left contented, and saw the Aurora in the car park. Would definitely go back if we visited the area again.

We' ve been here twice. Other restaurant were closed, crowded, or "smelly". This one has friendly service, English menu, really good tasting food: lapisch, or just a burger, it's all possible. Sauteed rendeer, seems more expensive then in other places, but portion sizes are bigger ánd it's delicious.

Food, ambience and service were good - we tried some of their local fare of grilled white fish from Inari and slow cooked reindeer neck. We were happy with what was served. The chocolate dessert was also good.

We booked and preordered our dinner one day before cause we were 17 people! I had reindeer neck cooked for 8 hours! In other case I wouldn't order that plate but since it was only one in my life that I could try it, I ordered it! The taste was amazing! The plates decoration as well! Other friends ate reindeer...

Having been in a few pubs I can verify what a good pub feels like...this is it. It was a quite Monday when we ate there and we were happy with the service and value

We really liked our overcooked reindeer and salmon salad. Service was also working fast and people were nice! Deserts were cute with very good taste. Overall this is what we want to see in Lapland!

On our way even further north we stopped in Saariselka - which seems to be a very nice town - and saw this restaurant and decided to have a late lunch. We were pleasantly surprised by the decor, the menu and staff. Service was quick and attentive and the food was quickly served. We had the most delicious white fish... More

we came to the restaurant because of the positive reviews, but we were very disappointed by the food. We went to Pirkon Pirtti the next day, and it was way better!

Good service, good food and atmosphere and reasonable prices compared to other restaurants of the village. We were a group of 8 people and we went more than once. We liked a lot the reindeer, the grilled stake, the entrecote and the white fish! Even the caberet sauvignon from SA was very good! Very happy there is a children menu... More
