Not cheap but definitely worth the money. Don't miss... More

Typical Finnish dishes, excellently cooked and presented. The ceps creamy soup is excellent. Friendly staff; great chef. Don't go to Saariselka without trying it.

We went there during week and were only one there. Service was good and I got some dairy and egg free food for my little kid. Our (4 adults) foods were great and worth the cost. I Would visit there another time.

The food was slightly above average overall, I think. Mine was less tasty, my husband got the reindeer dish and enjoyed it, and my daughter got the vegetarian dish which was far and away the tastiest thing on the table. My 2.5 year old son ate some of the bread they brought out and not much else. I found the... More

Food was good and tasty, couldn't get the aperitive I wanted, because they were lacking cloudberries even though currently is the season for cloudberries. Service was bad and unkind.

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.
