We walked here after a day or walking in the woods. We were dressed in our Arctic weather gear and I was concerned that we may not fit in as it looked posh. We were warmly welcomed and shown to a beautiful table and given a shot of cloudberry liqueur to warm us up. The waiter / owner was extremely... More

We took the special Xmas menu. We had a great (and almost exhaustive!) overview of the local food. Starters included various (smoked) fish. The main dish featured both elk and reindeer. I really loved it (but you have to like the taste of "game"). Service was very efficient even though the restaurant was full. Lots of tourists like us but... More

Nice place for a decent meal. Of all places in Äkäslompolo good choice to go for dinner. Pretty busy place, lots of tourists of course.

I rated Poro a few years back - probably as good. Now it' s excellent! They improved the missing detail - the speed if service. They have additional ( and quick staff) while food and atmosphere is still very, very good. Good move!

We went with our daughter and son-in-law and their 18 month old baby and had a lovely family meal here. The service was friendly and attentive and the surroundings are comfy and appealing. They were especially good with the toddler. The menu has some great local dishes and there were certainly no complaints with 5 empty plates afterwards. It's a... More

They have some great dishes on the menu and most important for us even vegan/vega salads. The service was nice and quick even though it was pretty crowded. The owner is very nice and the food tasted good.
