I had late lunch / early dinner in this nicely decorated restaurant. My choice blinis for starter was great and main dish reindeer with two sauces was one of best ever. Also wine list was good. Service very good. I can recommend.

Been there many times and I'm still not convinced about their food! They serve you food from Lapland fish and meet and reindeer which can be good but I think the price is too high. Service very friendly.

... that's what the name means. This is a quite ok place - nothing extraordinary but quite tasteful. I liked the starters. The service was friendly. The place is not close the local centers, so you need to take a long walk or a taxi.

The most kindest service! Cozy and warm from the inside, don't let the exterior fool you. Food was good (maybe a bit too mild for my taste, I prefer it more spicy) portion size was good and dessert was good! Recommend!
