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.

A lovely lunch spot in the city centre. Was busy when we arrived, but we luckily found a table for two! Very generous portions. Was lovely after a day hiking on a guided tour!

Excellent Salmon soup - the best I had in Finland. Nice staff too. I was just wandering around, shopping, when I peeked my head in this restaurant. I am glad I did. The Salmon soup was wonderful.

This is arguably the best lunch place in Rovaniemi. Their salad bowl with organic, fresh salmon is divine. A must try. I wish I could have their salad bowl every day! Their home-made waffles and ice cream are also delicious. Perfect dessert.

Again quite reasonably priced compared to other places in this city. Cocktails are delicious and they have the most amazing desserts. Although the selection fades somewhat as the afternoon progresses. Would recommend you visit at lunch time to have a better selection of desserts to...choose from.More

Went for dinner with DH and it was delicious. We got two waffles and the bao buns. I got chicken, he got bang bang cauliflower and we got pork buns. The buns were huge and def not needed. We were both full after eating our...waffles. Both waffles (with a side salad) were delicious. I have had similar Asian flavored dishes before but certainly never on a waffle so it was a bit unique. We each also had a glass of wine with our meal and although choices were limited both wines by the glass were quite good. You order at the counter so you might have to queue a bit to wait your turn. Desserts looked amazing but we were too full to be tempted. Very good meal.More

The most delicious food, both the food waffles, salad and the waffle dessert and the most friendly staff. It is such a pity we found it at our last day here, if not, we would definately have been eating here more times. Nice and cozy...atmosphere. I can highly recommend 21 Café & Bar!More

Very warm and cozy atmosphere and yum gelato. I would recommend spending an hour here at least with a good book and watch the snowfall. You feel like you’re in a Christmas movie and there is magic just outside the window.
