I had late lunch with my friend, we both had mushroom pasta dish. Service was good, maybe a bit too friendly, and food was ok. Pasta a bit undercooked. Company in table next to us were very satisfied. Nice, cosy and quiet atmosphere at that moment.

We visit Ruka every year and usually head here in the evenings.
The Finnish have extremely high standards and the food is fabulous. Even for kids they are great. They supply colouring supplies for them. Water readily available at the table for free, even the napkins are amazing and I know that sounds silly but I haven't found a restaurant here in the uk with napkins this good.
This is a friendly establishment with very well spoken English by all staff.
It's also very comfortable and the food is really good and fresh and not long waits either. They also offer a buffet which I will be trying in a few weeks as that's the only thing I haven't tried yet.

The food was fine but the service was super slow and not very friendly - not cheap either 120 euros for 4 mains, 4 desserts and 2 alcoholic drinks

This was about the only restaurant open on Midsummer's night in the area, so we were glad to find it. It's very spacious, pleasant enough surroundings and quite a menu choice. We plumped for simple house burger and reindeer pizza, and the pizza was the better of the two. As others have said, service is very slow, but everyone was pleasant - they probably had less staff than usual as it was a big holiday, and things were quiet. There is a good outside seating area for chilling with a drink and people were making the most of this on a lovely evening.

OK food for when you are staying at the hotel and are in a hurry to get to the slopes. Service is efficient but not too friendly so typically finnish. Can recommend the salads.
