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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Cozy ambience and friendly service. Would give 5 stars if they had a separate person at the door checking corona passes. The bar staff shouldn't have to run to the door.

Boxing day family meal turned out to be an unhappy event due to really unfriendly and arrogant service provided by the Kota personnel. Even normal service would have been valued but this time for some reason it didn’t happen.

Stayed just up the road from here and dropped in virtually every day for a meal or drink. The quality of the food was excellent and the atmosphere in the bar relaxing with a good selection of drinks and beer on offer. The bar is...open late which is also a plus. Enjoyed the burgers and other dishes like elk stew. Very recommended.More

The offers are Burger or buffet with daily soup. Large choice of beer or drinks. The prices are high but it's Levi... We take a Game Burger, quite good, the buffet looks good too. A good place in Levi, the four stars are fir the...level of price. The same beer in Akaslompolo is 20% cheaper.More

The place is a great bar and restaurant at the same time. You can just go there for a drink without the pressuring feeling you should get something from the Menu. But I highly recommend to have a lunch or dinner there - the used...ingredients are selected carefully and their food is cooked thoughtfully. Lunch buffet has always a vegeterian option (and the kitchen prepares food for vegans when asked). Their self made bread is delicious. They also got the best sweet potato fries I have ever had.More

Levi is expensive to eat, Kota offer half price cocktails in a lovely environment that is incredibly friendly and welcoming. We came here a few times on our 4 day trip to have either coffees in the afternoon or cocktails before dinner. Food is lovely,...great lunch deal as well - def worth a visit!More

Plenty of beers and gins to choose from but we went for coffees which were very pleasant and not too expensive.Bar staff spent most of their time chatting to locals, so we didn't feel particularly welcome.

We popped in to warm up with a cuppa but the atmosphere was so lovely and the music choice was just my cup of tea so we ended up having a few gins and a snack. The prices were relatively cheap for the area and...there was an excellent selection. We tired to bring the rest of the family back there on our last day but unfortunately they were closed for staff training. I suppose it's an excuse to go back to Levi again! 😂More
