Unfortunately, the owner and the menu have changed. The price level is slightly more expensive. Many favorite left out like reindeer fillet. Good starter, blin which is ”more like traditional Russian” food. Atmosphere is excotic and staff is friendly. The location is a bit sideways.

Restaurant has nice atmosphere and service is very friendly. Menu has no big surprises, but for local Lapland specialities this is a very good choice (ofcourse especially reindeer as their name suggests... Poro means reindeer in finnish...)
