It was one of the best meal of all my life! All what I tasted there was amazing. In particular I eat as starter some trout from lake Inari, then reindeer (grilled fillet and braised entrecote) and as dessert bluebarry cake. It is not traditional lappish cuisine but quite modern lappish cuisine. All the dish were very looked after and very tasty, the view is amazing because restaurant is on a lonely hill. The price are high but it is worthful for what you can eat. I would really like to eat there also because the menu is always changing!

Went for the the 5 courses surprise menu with the "heavenly wines" as drinks for the courses. I must say that this was probably the best restaurant experience I have ever had. Great service, excellent food, nice atmosphere. Our choice of food and drinks were of course slightly more pricey than a "normal" restaurant visit but was definitely worth it. Highly recommend it!!!

Fabulous food in hill top surroundings.
The service here was excellent from start to finish.

A'la carte food beautifully presented, well prepared and very tasty. The speciality here is local Reindeer cooked 2 ways.... Delicious!

Although the food here is expensive, so is everything in Finland, but at this place you do get a feeling it was worth it.

We skied here all day and then they floodlight the ski area until 8pm. Good timing for a great dinner to finish off our day. Taxi back into Rovanemi about 20 euros, although the hotel here looks very nice.

i ate ther with a friend somethime in summer and it was one of the best sunsets in my life i saw! The resturant is told to be the best resturant in all of lappland and i agree. The first meals was kind of small but very tasty, then to the actuall food: i was very happy with my steak it wasnt to small but still not to big (in a good way) the best part of the entire evening was the bread. It was my entire lifes best brad experience and it was free!
