We booked this restaurant for a New Year's Eve meal. The decor and atmosphere in the restaurant were really welcoming and there was an excellent choice of food and drinks on the menus. As a family of 7 of mixed age ranges (11 - 71), it was important to have a choice of menu that suited us all and Poro... More

Lunch time meal, very tasty and good value for money. Place was quite and good service, if a little relaxed. Could be they might struggle in busy times but can't fault them for our visit.

Lovely restaurant with good basic food from Lapland. As a starter drink I recommend cloudberry liqueur with whiskey and 7-up. Smoked reindeer mushroom soup was lovely and also tradiotional reindeer with mashed potatos was great!

Visited in December for drinks a few times Very quiet when we visited staff seemed a bit abrupt but not sure if that's the way they are They left us to it Not sure they were keen on us having kids in there Prices were reasonable for this area

This is lovely for a nice dinner out, a bit more expensive as the meals are excellent quality. We had lovely starters and always go for the reindeer for main which is cooked to perfection. My daughter had lovely meatballs which they brought out with our starter. The decor is lovely inside and very rustic.

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
