We had a meal here on our first evening at the Ice Hotel. It's a very pleasant 10 minute walk up the frozen river from the Ice Hotel or if you prefer you can walk along the footpath by the road. The menu was quite limited and so we each had reindeer burger. I forget what it was actually called.... More

In hefty ice suits this is a bit of a walk from the ice hotel .. we were surprised. It's fine but not if you don't walk well. Probably only half mile. There's a little supermarket en route to which is useful. The old homesteads is beautiful, rustic and simple. Little menu, few choices. The food was amazing . Halloumi... More

Even thought this is a part of the IceHotel complex, it is a nice change from their pricey restuarant.

I went here for dinner (best to make reservations beforehand) during my stay at the ICEhotel. It is a 10 minute walk but easy to find. The restaurant is located in an old homestead building and is nicely decorated. There are enough items on the menu to choose from. I had a soup and a reindeer burger. Soup was delicious... More

We stayed at the ice hotel but chose to eat here and really enjoyed it. We shared the deli platter of meats and cheeses with bread and crackers which we really enjoyed. I had chicken and my partner had the steak both well cooked and enjoyable Lovely evening

We had a n excellent meal here last week - the deli platters were wonderful and plentiful and the main meals were superb. I can recommend the halloumi burgers and potato patties. The atmosphere and service were good and it is only a 10 minute walk from the Ice hotel.

We ate here in the evening during our one night in the Ice Hotel and were not disappointed. The service and food was very good (we had the Rib Eye steak with amazing fries) and their wine recommended wine was equally good. The menu isn't extensive, but what there is, is great as are the portion size. The location was... More

Old Homestead is a must for anyone visiting the area or staying at Icehotel, which is a short walk away. The atmosphere is so charming and warm and the staff are all very friendly. Try the reindeer burger! And the Torne Islager beer! Great meal!

We had dinner here and wow, what great service and food. Portion size matched the need for food in the arctic and after a day of exploring in the freezing temperatures. The food was served with elegance and grace, the food cooked to perfection. A must place to eat if you visit the area.

We ate here mid Feb as part of our stay at the Icehotel. I found it overall to be lacking in atmosphere (even though it was very busy). The menu is very limited - we both went for the wild deer burger. Upon both of us selecting saute potatoes we were advised we'd get a bowl between us - not... More
