While the place looks like sports bar / pub, it also has a great dining restaurant (turn right from the door). The food is a bargain, great value with reasonable price. Staff is friendly and our kids (8 and 5) really want to come here every time we visit Saariselkä. Highly recommended.

We werent' even sure that we were hungry, but are SO GLAD we dropped in to have a look. Our lunch was superb. I recommend their roast beef. Their gravy and Bernaise sauce was delicious. It was a great place for an impromtu lunch and it is very comfortable, quiet and warm.

We popped into the pub after a long day and were greeted by a fabulous bar man who was friendly and wanted to chat. He was interested in our day. Great service and an ice cold Finnish pint.

Went to this place , having seen the recommendation from TA and was very impressed. Speed of service was excellent and the setting was very cosy for a chilly night. The bar area to the right was great with darts, pool and some skiing on the TV, which kept the kids entertained. The food was delicious and so well presented,... More

Stop in here by chance and were pleasantly surprised. The owner of the pub loves jagermeister and has empty bottles around the whole pub, over 1000 according to staff. Marilyn Monroe features as well. The menu is varied with many options. Having tried them in Paris I ordered the escargots (snails) and was blown away by the flavour! Garlic and... More

We were told by multiple people this was the best restaurant in town so we gave it a shot for lunch the first day there. Lunch was good, the waiter was a little snobby and seemed unhappy to have to be at work. We ended up coming back another day for dinner and had an amazing waiter who we had... More

The food was edible but not quite what you'd expect. We ordered the steak, me as medium rare and my wife well done. Both were not well done nor were they medium rare. The waitress wasn't exactly polite and the waiter rude and ironic. When my wife asked him if there is a toilet because she didn't find it he... More

We had a drink at the pub before having dinner in the restaurant. The pub looked really nice, lots of space. The restaurant had a completly different atmosphere, very stylish. The food was great, especially the sauted reindeer. We had some dessert too, a deconstructed cheesecake and icecream with cloudberries. It looked really pretty with some edible flowers on top....

Great evening. The huskies were smaller than we thought. Guides were really helpful and knowledgeable. Dress warm and wear the recommended gear because it gets quite cold.
