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.

The restaurant has an amazing ambience and decor. Great choice of local cuisine. The food was delicious and nicely presented. I was served by Waldemar. He helped me choose my dish and local beer and I loved it! He was very friendly, attentive and helpful....He really cares about a good customer service. I would definitely recommend visiting if you are in Rovaniemi. I was lucky to get a table being a walk in, but definitely best to book in advance to avoid disappointment as it is quite popular.More

We came to the restaurant for family dinner and to celebrate a graduation. The food was excellent, and even the vegetarian main course option tasted absolutely delicious. The cherry on top was the outstanding customer service by our lovely waiter Waldemar. I would highly recommend...this restaurant to anyone visiting Rovaniemi!More

We were sooo happy we chose this restaurant! The food was so good but what made our meal outstanding was a super lovely waiter called Johny! It would have not been the same without him! Super friendly and excellent customer care!

Greatest meal ever. I have to say that wholeheartedly! We have never experienced anything like this ever before. Every dish was perfectly prepared and highlighted the lapland flavours.

We spent two nights in Rovaniemi in February 2024. We looked at the reviews of the restaurants there and decided to go to the Arctic Restaurant because we wanted to treat ourselves to a nice evening. We were very lucky to get a table for...dinner without a reservation! The restaurant has a wonderful vibe. The atmosphere is relaxed (we did not have to dress up), and relaxing (the friendly staff took their time to inform us about the menu offerings and gave us much-needed advice about local food and wine pairings). My husband thoroughly enjoyed his dish of reindeer filet and moose (slow-cooked in duck fat). I loved the vegetarian options.More

The best food and restaurant experience I had in Rovaniemi. The crayfish soup, the crayfish pasta, and the reindeer & moose were incredible. The server was an amazing Argentinian who took care of us and gave us a great experience.

We were looking for a restaurant more than an hour. when we recalled that Arctic was down the street. Sadly we didn’t had reservations but Johnny was wonderful and did everything to find us a table.We ordered what Johnny recommended and it was the BEST...meal we ever had the past three days. The dinner, the atmosphere and Johnny’s kindness made our Finland trip unforgettable! Highly recommending Artic in so many levels!More
