Simple, decent salmon but good. Cosy and warm interior which provides a good shelter against cold winter snow as the salmon is grilled in front of you. Simply pleasant although the seats and tables are narrow, still no problem...

You gotta try this restaurant whenever you're in Rovaniemi. The grilled Salmon is out of this world!!! It's so fresh and perfectly grilled. The restaurant is unique and small. Probably only fit for 15-20 person max. The potato salad on a side is also delicious....More

It's a small place, and we didn't expect such a tasty food. The service is quite fast, and prices are very reasonable.

You must try this salmon. It really is grilled to perfection. The Lappish cheese is also worth a taste. A lovely experience in Rovaniemi.

Served by two young entrepreneurs, with only one main course of open fire roasted salmon served with a side of bread and salad. Warm and cozy place to dine at in the cold weather. Definitely will come back for another taste of the salmon!
