The grilled salmon is freshly cooked and arguably the best tasting salmon in Finland. It's the best place to go after a long walk out in the cold to warm up beside the fireplace/stove. The manager is also super nice and welcoming.

By far the tastiest and well done salmon I have ever had! It's a must eat if you're visiting the Santa Claus holiday village

Super fresh salmon. Cocked to perfection. Grilled on a proper wooden fire, spiced with just sea salt. A nice Lokal style teepe seats around the fire.

very cozy place. Salmon was just expected, basic&tasty but not special or phenomenal. The owner was lovely.

Our family of four visited here in October just as the first snow had come. This place has a terrific atmosphere in a traditional hut. They char the salmon right in front of you and it was some of the tastiest salmon I’ve eaten. And...as a Finn, I’ve had a lot of salmon. The service was also top-notch and the staff was really friendly.More

Santas Salmon Place is a great experience. We had to wait a little while, but it was worth it! Smokey salmon cooked right in front of us in a teepee! Delicious, fresh, hot. All the seats face the fire in the middle, so you may...end up sitting next to a new friend :) Highly reccommend.More
