Description: Restaurant closed: 1.9.-15.10.2017 The Lapland Restaurant Kotahovi gets its name from "kota" which is Finnish and means Lappish style hut. Our Lapland style restaurant is located on the Santa Claus Reindeer resort in Santa Claus Village at the Arctic Circle. We offer typical Lappish dishes and also more modern cuisine in a very cozy atmosphere.

Situated in Santa Clause Village this restaurant has a Sami tent like architectural shape. Tables are near the small windows round a big fire place in the middle which make one feel cosy and relaxed. Not a wide variety of dishes but they are delicious!
Try the wild mushroom soup! We were served by a very polite young lady. Opening hours from noon until 4 pm (at least in winter time). Also, very nice choice for small groups due to limited sitting space. Give it a try!

The services of the 2 sisters here were excellent. The food was really nice, esp. the blueberry pie n glogi poached pear were simply heavenly. The mushroom soup was creamy n delicious.
The sautéed reindeer tasted really nice, albeit abit gamey. But the soured cucumber n berries nicely balanced that out.
Overall it's definitely one of the best restaurant here in Santa Claus Village.

Intended for the "Salmon Place" but it was closed! Lucky we found this treasure! Side talk, there's no way to tell whether a place is open until u actually walk up its door...
Unexpectedly classy and worthy restaurant in the village. The decor was so superb we didnt want to leave.
Food was scrumptious! The amuse bouche was salmon paste lingonberry open sandwich! Very appetizing!
We had the salmon and the white fish, both were excellently cooked, although slightly overseasoned.
The lingonberry pancakes were must-try! Crispy outside soft insides.
Can't give enough compliments!
If I ever come back to Rovaniemi, this is on my place-to-revisit list! Bravo Kotahovi!

Best blueberry pie I have eaten in a long time! Definitely worth visiting just for the coffee and pie, but amazing surroundings and will definitely return with my family to try the menu!

The place is really nice and cosy, with a very pleasant atmosphere. They have a menu with a good variety, unlike other places where we went at Santa's Village. The food was delicious. We tried the mushroom and salmon food, as well at the salmon. The prices are also very reasonable.
