Small but cozy inside. Got a seat right away, but still took about 30 minutes for the food to be ready. That's ok because in the meantime we drank some tea and warmed up. The waiter was really friendly and attentive. The salmon was perfectly...More

Definitely a MUST try when u are at santa claus village. Salmon is cooked over open fire upon order, therefore do expect a 20 to 25mins wait for the mouth watering salmon to be served to you. While waiting, you can order some drinks or...More

Nice restaurant in the middle of the Santa Clause Village. It was really small, but we could find a seat easily at around 2-3pm. Baked salmon was delish, with crispy outside and moist inside. The bread and coleslaw served with salmon were also good. Though...More

Best place for a quick piece of salmon grilled to perfection and juicy. Desserts are tasty too! The wait is worth it!
