We enjoyed a tasty weekday lunch of smoked salmon pasta and salads and lovely bread, and appreciated the nice touch of a home-cooked biscuit with the coffee afterwards. The restaurant itself was clean and comfortable with nice ambience and friendly staff.

So, New place at the city for us and already from the outside it looked promising and kind of lay-off chill moody place. Interior, atmosphere, music, ambient, staff, food, food techniques, service and everything is well balqnced and implemented throught the hole experience. It was...a nice fresh suprise in the Rovaniemi restaurant scene where there is mqny lapland style places. Food in here still kertaa it roots in the quality local ingridienses. That i like a lot but the style how they managed to tie up everything with a freah cool grip was nice. Staff New their champagne and wines so big plus from the part also.More

This is what restaurants in Finland should be like. Pure ingredients, imaginative and bold recipes and prices you wouldn't mind paying every single week. They really knew their way around wines! Gave us some recommendations we could never have imagined, Barolo with both fish and...meat, and wow, just wow. Lovely staff, relaxed atmosphere and all in all a great experience. Highly recommended!More

High expectations on this restaurant. The food was definitely up to it, innovative and high quality in every respect. But the milieu did not match the level of the chef. The worst thing was the "music" played too loud. The cheap generic on-line backgroud wallpaper...tries to seduce youg trendy crowd. Funny thing is, the same soundline is present in every Sale discount store. Helps you to grab your toilet paper and detergents for sure. Please do not underestimate your clientele! We asked three times to lower the volume a bit but the response was somewhat rude "can't be done". The service was nice but a mistake on the final bill had us waiting for correction for almost an hour. Not a nice ending to otherwise classy dinner.More

All the flavours were delicious, service was nice and polite, atmosphere was chill! Just what I expected based on the reviews I had read!

The idea of the menus is to order several small dishes (ask for wine suggestions for an overall experience) from the ”cold list” and the ”hot dishes list” finished with the desserts list. Each plate cost around 10€ give or take. Do not neglet the...spreads for the hand made bread as you will not regret it! Each plate is build with tiny components fullfilling each others in flavor made from local ingredients in international style of a modern fusion kitchen. Menu changes every few months so I can’t recommend anything particular.. but to go every few weeks to taste the full menu before it changes again! Brilliant tastest and professionalism!More

Both sides the bar and restaurant have a very relaxed and trendy vibe. Cold and hot small portions from which you can make out your own menu. Friendly service and delicious food. Interesting wine list and excellent wine pairing suggestions to the portions. The restaurant...scene is becoming very interesting in Rovaniemi when restaurants of this standard are popping up.More
