My partner and I went here one evening and he had the steak and I had the chicken with goats cheese and both were very good cuts of meat but if you are on a budget then it is pricey but all the restaurants are around saariselka unless you eat in the cafe by the supermarket I would say give...

Had lunch here twice and they offered gluten free options. Loved the chicken burger and the service was fantastic and helpful.

Excellent price-quality ratio and the best steaks in town, nice decoration of food, good service (one waiter was really polite and communicating well whilst the other was one was rather silent, however, being still polite). Service very quick, sometimes even a bit too quick (entree was served whilst starter was not even 100% finished). Good choice is always the grilled... More

We had an early dinner here from reviews for other TA. And they were not wrong. Entree we shared the Finnish salmon soup (which is normally a main but the server said he could make this an entree and split into entree size for two) Mains we tried the: Grilled Salmon and king prawns - the meal was quite refreshing,...

Two couples and babysitters at the cottage. Aim was to have a good time with tasty food in lovely atmosphere. Teerenpesä fulfilled all our needs. Food and wine was really good and the waiter with positive comments and laugh was the cherry on the top.

I usually try to avoid restaurants that are mixture of pubs and restaurants. Pubs are good for drinks and good restaurants need good kitchen and cook. We decided for this place anyway due its rank on TA and best one was located even further. To my delight, the restaurant is quite well separated from pub part.We were first customers to... More

We first visited this pub/restaurant in 2012 - it was the first place our then 4 year old son tried steak and loved it. We returned to Saariselka in December 2016 and this restaurant was first on our list. As we entered, I was a little worried that I was remembering it through rose tinted glasses but I needn't have...

This is a friendly place to go for Dinner, and has great staff, who even listened to my improvised Finnish attempt. It's family friendly, and has a lovely vibe to it.

We tried the pepper steak and the lake fish and both dishes were delicious. If you don't like garlic then you should stay away from the steak as the potatoes were very garlicky. The beetroot sauce that came with the fish was delicious. We also shared the chocolate cake dessert which was fine but very expensive considering how tiny the... More

We made Xmas evenreservations in advance, but as we were staying next door this week, we wandered in a few nights ago for a drink and nibblies. The place just has a good vibe, cozy, both pub and gastropub depending on what side you pick. Bartenders attentive and welcoming. First time we had salmon/crayfish soup - what a gastronomic surprise.... More
