We had a mini-vacay in Hotel Aateli, and enjoyed both dinner and breakfast of Restaurant Ainoa a lot! Price level is quite high, but all we ordered were delicious. Special points for supporting local suppliers; especially berries, jams and home made smoothies etc were excellent!

The atmosphere of the restaurant can be given three stars but the food was simply overprised in terms of quality and the size of a portion. There were a couple of small pieces of fish (some of them with bones) in the pot (Kuharuukku) among...a thick white and sweet sauce. The price of this Kuharuukku was 31 euros. We were four diners all together and ordered same portions. The amount of fish in these four servings corresponded in our opinion to a total of one normal restaurant serving size for one person. The restaurant food is expensive in Finland but the price at this level of portion at this level of a restaurant just exceeded all standards! An unexpected experience indeed.More

Starters were tasty and let us waiting for more, but main courses were nothing special. My Burger had probably been waiting for serving cos was just warm, not Hot and another main course was tasty but well... Way too Small and costed 35 euros. We...took some kind of mixture of espresso and ice cream for dessert and it was just a espresso Cup with tea spoon of ice cream and 9 euros each! Its not a problem To pay for good food, but this wasnt at the level we waited for (except my starter). Service was a bit slow, all special beers were sold out. Atmosphere was nice.More

The restaurant itself was very nice and had a great feel to it. Food was good but nothing special. Service was a little bit slow, maybe the waitor was new?

The restaurant web pages promised a lot and we were excited to experience a new place. We booked a table for two, and were advised book a little later, since the evening was busy. However, we still had to wait for our drinks, and the...starters came about one hour later than ordered. The main food was not what was promised in the menu. For example, the "Soup with smoked perch" had canned perch on top of a soup, and the "Charcoal-grilled whitefish" was not charcoal grilled, but fried in a pan, creasy and slushy. The service was utterly slow, and the first waitress just disappeared, and the other came to apologise, but this happened only after two hours. At that point the restaurant was not full at all.More

We visited restaurant friday evening. It was almost full. It is good to reserve table beforehand as we did. Service was friendly. We took Hunters Gourmet Bread which was served also gluten-free as all the dishes upon request. All the dishes are also lactose free....We liked our meal and it was big enough after skiing. For dessert we took local Huuskola Vanilla Ice Cream which was good and again they noticed our gluten-free wishes. The view from the restaurant is good, you can see ski slopes nearby.More
