I'm living in Rovaniemi, and Sky Ounasvaara is absolutely my favourite restaurant in the town. To be honest, it's my favourite in the whole Finland. Just to mention, now i'm talking about fine dining, to get something cheap and cheerful it's better to go somewhere else. I've visited in many michelin star-restaurants and i must tell that not many of them have beaten Sky Ounasvaara.

When I eat there, i usually take the surprise menu. I've never had anything i didn't like, even if some of the dishes have been quite experimental. The best thing is, that you can really taste all the incredients. Strong flavors. All the sauces etc. are really made by the chefs, wich unfortunately isn't really common in finnish restaurants. They use local indredients when possible. Breads and butter served are made on spot. Dishes are not large, but if you eat 3-5 courses, they are just perfect, you won't leave hungry. The price may be a bit expensive, but it's everywhere in finland. This is where you get really good quality for the money. Pay just a little less and eat junk elsewhere.

Most of the times i've taken the wine package, so the waitress has picked wines matching my menu. This far they have matched well. Serving are really friendly and the athmosphere in the restaurant in lovely.

I would recommend this restaurant to everyone who likes to eat well.

We had the "surprise menu" where the chef chose the food and matched wines... fabulous experience with a good window seat to view Aurora (switched off our evening!!). Food sublime, wine very well chosen, bill shocking - a major treat ((DON'T take kids)

Very nice place. Beautiful view to the hill. We were in four so had chance to taste and rate different dishes. Highly recommend reindeer and goat milk yogurt for dessert. Waitress was very kind and answered to all our questions, explained carefully about ingredients. Before starter we were treated with onion soup and bread of different types. Both were tasty. I have never eaten so taste beet root as there. Chef should be very talented and professional to prepare such a masterpiece of such simple vegetable. I have not tried pies, portion was too small, but I'm sure it was also very good.

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!
