Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We took the moose tenderloin and the goose tenderloin. Those plates are rather expensive (44€ each), but they are exquisite! A nice restaurant

Very rude staff, idk about the food because we never got any. We wanted to try this restaurant last week. We like to eat late so we checked online that the restaurant closes at 23 and the kitchen at 22. No reservation needed. There is...also the same information in the restarant door. There was not any special opening times that day. When we arrived (21.17) it was very obvious that nobody wanted us to come that late. Nobody came to us so we went to the desk to ask for a table for two. This rude old lady said that they already cleaned the kitchen and it's not possible anymore. I mentioned about the opening times in the door so she went to kitchen rolling her eyes. She came back just to say that there's nothing they can do and she left. I guess they noticed that we were very disappointed so the manager came after us. She tried to help the situation asking what we were planning to orded so that she can check if they can do it. It doesn't matter what we wanted, they should take customers in until the kitchen closes 40 minutes later. After that they have an hour the clean the kitchen. We didn't want to put any money in this place so we left. I can't recommend this to anyone.More

Put this restaurant into your bucket list! If you ever think about where to eat in Kuusamo, this is the place! Personally I’ve visited there 3 times and I always take the same portion, sautéed reindeer 😋 Restaurant itself is like a cottage and the...staff makes you feel like home. I recommend this place from the bottom of my heart ❤️More

Wonderful experience, incredible service, and food. So accommodating to our pescetarian lifestyle yet able to to experience the local culture cuisine. We enjoyed fried Vendaces, Arctic Char,Lapland Bread Cheese Salad, and incredible desserts (chef’s compliments) - if you get an opportunity it is a must...to visit!!!More

Excellent restaurant serving well prepared local menus. Service is most polite finalizing the nice and welcoming atmosphere. I especially recommend the local reindeer filet.

Lunch pasta was really overpriced as portion is very small. Fried vendace was good, and more reasonably priced. Tables not wiped, and really sad that inside in the restaurant you get beer in plastic cup and even forks are plastic...

Sauteed reindeer was good but all too small. Even mashed potatoes was little. Beetroot - portion was okei. Weiters were too little, maybe because covid influence still

The waitress was kind and welcoming. The food was tasty and exotic. The dishes were a bit pricey but that is understandable considering the quality. The desserts were unique and also delicious. The mood / ambience was homey and relaxing. I would 100% recommend this...place to anyone that is visiting Ruka. :)More

This was our second visit to Ruka and my husband was excited to try the bear after missing out on going the last time we were on holiday. We decided to book here for my 40th birthday meal and we were not disappointed. I even...had to change the time of the booking via online chat and this was sorted no problems at all. I ordered the elk steak and my husband had the “legendary” bear. The bear was delicious but the elk steak was out of this world and just melted in the mouth. Whilst my husband was happy with the bear he was jealous of the elk steak. For dessert I had the bread cheese (which is essentially halloumi in a Dulce de lace sauce). It blew my mind as the flavours went so well together and is something I have recreated since coming home. My husband had the brownie which was rich and moist. The staff and service was superb and the restaurant itself is very cosy. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and it was genuinely one of the best meals I have ever had.More

I ate here 3 times despite, I might add , the cost. The Saute Bear was delicious as wqs the Elk pepper steak and also Elk Carpaccio. I loved the Diime cake but at 12 Euros could have done without. I thought the decor was...wonderfully folksy. People from Helsinki like to eat here too. The service was ok but not exceptional. Would I go again yes!!More
