We spent our last day dinner in Poro restaurant to have some traditional lappisch food. We got a very warm welcome and the starter drink "kick the reindeer" was very tasty. The food was served in an adequate time and it was very delicious. We recommend the reindeer filet and the mixed plate. Thank you for the perfect evening.

The second restaurant that we visited during our stay in Äkäslompolo was the Poro. Poro means reindeer and the filet that they offer is sensational. Very nice place for dinner! We liked it very much

We visited Poro during our trip to Lapland. The restaurant was quaint and had a lovely atmosphere. The food was really good and big portions. The staff were very attentive and polite, excellent service. A lovely restaurant to visit for fine dinning Finnish food.

We only ate here once but would have used it more if we hadn't left it so late before our first visit. The food was very good offering plenty of traditional Finnish fayre. The staff & owners are very friendly as were all the locals that we came into contact with. Highly recommended.

Probably one of the better places to eat on the area, but the food was just ok. 3 stars for how quick they were with everything and the friendly service.

This is restaurant you must eat at when in Askalompolo Finland. The food is excellent with the choice of fish, Elk, Reindeer, Bear, Beer and Pork. The Bear was very good as well the Elk Burger. Very friendly staff and the interior has to be seen. Picture is the Elk Burger.

My wife and I visited Poro on two occasions during a recent holiday. The décor is typically Lappish (wood and antlers) and it is very quaint. The atmosphere is relaxed and the staff are very friendly, helpful and courteous. We tried arctic salmon, reindeer, elk and bear and all were delicious. The Lappish beer is very nice too. I would...
