Such delicious waffles. We got a salmon, a a crab and a chocolate waffle and all of them were really good. Probably the best meal we had in Rovaniemi. Really recommend to have a lunch or dinner there.

This place might be on the edge of the Arctic Circle but it wouldn't look out of place in Helsinki, Copenhagen, Stockholm etc. Really cool, laid back ambience and a great menu with an interesting selection of food and drinks. We only had cocktails (one...blueberry sour and one cloudberry syrup mojito), both of which were excellent and pretty good value.More

We had booked a table but when we arrived the waitress said the earlier customers arrived late so they are not able to serve us. We were pissed off.

Excellent place that I can only recommend. The atmosphere is relaxed and nice, the staff was very friendly and welcoming, the food was really good (and good value for money), the specielty is waffles, try the Red Crab Skagen! The dessert waffles, ice cream and...cakes also looked extremely delicious, but didn't have room for dessert. ;-)More

I’m really not sure what to say about these guys. We ordered 3 ice cream desserts and they took over 30 minutes to arrive. Our waitress also made us feel awkward asking to have all our main dish plates removed from our table so we...could eat the desserts. Whoever owns this place needs to get the team together and give them a good talking to so that the service improves. If not, business will disappear. Good luckMore

Makes me feel good to visit this restaurant. Quite lively but still relaxed atmosphere. Polite staff and nice cakes in offer. They also serve delicious lunch. Really worth of visiting if you’re moving around in Rovaniemi surroundings.

I had a chicken bowl that was fantastic! It came with some yummy bread and mayo. The place is situated right in town. Cozy and beautiful place. The house white suits well with the bowl!
