“Beware of tourist groups”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

Rovaniemi is a small town where you can normally go to a restaurant without a booking. During the tourist season in winter, even the most ordinary restaurants are crowded with tourists. You should then be prepared forca very slow service.

This is the case with Martina which is a part of the chain of Martina restaurants. The interior imitates some kind of Mediterranean look but the outcome is pretty vague. Food is ok if you don't expect much more than getting some food. There is a little bit of everything but nothing is truly great. Surprisingly though, their pizzas are the best in town.

If you like beer, Martina does not have much to offer. However, you can go and buy beer to your taste in the next-door Bar Hemingway's. Usually the waiters do not remember to mention this.

“nice food”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

Nice prices and tastes!!! especially the pasta with salmon is a must!!!! The salad from the bar is included in your meal and you can take anything you want concerning tomatoes, lettuce a fussili salad and other stuff. Also the salad with the shrimps is great and has a fine lemon taste!

“Quiet and relaxing”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

The staff were polite enough but there wasnt much interaction or atmosphere! The food was ok but I think it was expensive for what it was!!
The menu is varied with steaks as well as pasta and pizzas it tells u which dishes contains certain ingredients( garlic)
You can Help yourself to salad but not sure if u can return for more!!
Pizza was a bit under cooked
Perhaps we caught them on an off day!
Overall a bit disappointing
