Beautifully decorated old cabin log. We had an excellent soup of the day, tasty reindeer tenderloin, and best of all (and rare for Lapland) - excellent squab. Highly recommended

I cannot begin to describe how good the food is. It is mouth watering. Delicious. I would move to Saariselka just to be able to eat here more often. It was the only place we went to that had reasonably sized platters as well. And...More

We stayed at Kakslauttanen East Village recently and took a trip to the local town - Saariselka. We recommend the 3km walk to Laanilan Kievari (just south of the town) - it works up the appetite! The passion for good food & drink that this...More

The best coulinary experience ever in my life. I strongly recommend inner file of reindeer, and also great desserts, especially lingon parfait. I have never tasted meat this good, and I have visited restaurants in over 100 countries.

This restaurant just outside Saariselka is the best serving traditional food in the area. The atmosphere is elegant but cosy, also thanks to the fireplace and the wooden decoration. The menu includes just a few dishes but they are all very good and made with...More

Not really in Saariselkä, a couple of kilometers south from the main intersection, on a side road on the right. We had a dinner with friends in this restaurant and all the food was exceptional. I especially recommend the elk peppercorn steak, it just melts...More

This little restaurant has everything you are looking for. Its warm and cosy with a fire place, and most important, the food (reindeer, moose, salmon, trout) was of super quality and taste. Owners are really friendly, don’t miss this lovely spot out of the tourism...More

Waited ONE HOUR for our table even though we had reserved a table. Then it was another ONE HOUR before our main course finally arrived. Food quality was mediocre and not particularly cheap. Service wasn't good either. No idea how it got such high ratings...More

It’s not about filling our stomachs but eating and enjoying pure and fresh ingredients together. That’s the philosophy here at Laanilan Kievari. The food is of course playing an essential role in that. A lot of our ingredients have been harvested from our own yard or the local forests. It is very important for us to produce as much as we can ourselves. Our food is supported by a large range of beverages from quality wines to wast selection of beers. More and more people are not realizing what and even when they are eating. We want people to stop and enjoy their life. A well thought and produced meal in a care free environment is the key to that. So welcome to Laanilan Kievari, an experience to remember! From the early May to late August we serve lunch daily and dinner only with a table reservation. Check web page for more info.
