We visited this place for two times and we just loved the salmon and laphisch cheese so much! The staff is so kind. You have to go there when in Rovaniemi.

I am a senior citizen and he let our family wait outside. He didn’t want to take our order because maybe we were Asians. I hope he is not racist!

Very rude and arrogant employee roger. Didnt respect senior citizens. Keep on telling is to go out and wait. Even if the weather is super cold. You can say roger was racist to us.
