Description: 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.

We just saw the sign in time and turned into the small road that leads to the restaurant. Food was amazing, a perfect combination of typical lappish dishes with unconventional sides like sauces and butters (like lemon herb). Drinks range from a very light homemade root beer to very good wines and, the owner having been a barkeeper, interesting Cocktails. Hospitality was tremendous, we really enjoyed our evening. A definite "go there"

I visited Laanilan Kievari last week.I found the place to be very charming and welcoming.The interior is tastefully done the traditional Lappish old time way,very atmospheric.
They offer soup lunches during the day and in the evening it's a la carte.One can also have a sauna and swim in the frozen lake (there's a hole in the ice).They can easily be reached on foot,it's about a 25 minute walk away from Saariselkä centre.
I had an absolutely gourgeous fresh cinnamon bun there.
Well worth a visit!

Found this place by pure mistake, and over the moon that we did.
Small family run business with outstanding food, some of the best we had during our time in Lapland with service to match.
Lovely family that were more than happy to share their experience's and knowledge of the local area. We were made to feel incredibly welcome.
The Ice swimming and sauna are not to be missed, what an experience.
Highly recommend this place to anyone staying in the area, you wont be disappointed.
