The best salmon soup we tried in Finland. We also ate a lemon risotto that was delicious. It is a highly recommend restaurant, great food for an affordable price.

Awesome place with great food. We had the reindeer sandwhich and a salad. The staff is very friendly and the bistro is really stylish and cozy. We were the only non-locals.

My friends and I wish to try some reindeer but with a bistro style cuisine and we were told to visit this quaint restaurant. Wonderful experience. Such good food and such large portions. Entered hungry and lefted feeling stuffed and a sense of enjoyment. A...merry 20 people for max capacity but perfect for a lunch and even main meal. Pricing for me was very much like a gourmet bistro in Dublin, Ireland. My experience here was so good. Nice staff alsoMore

Awesome place, cozy, friendly staff, and the best food ever we tasted on Rovaniemi. The prices are good for Finland, and specially for Rovaniemi. We ordered Fish&Chips and Porc&Chips as main dishes and we were delighted with the quality of the food. Definitely a restaurant...to visit in Rovaniemi.More

Our tour guide suggested Roka for dinner and we tried it. It was the best dinner experience in Rovaniemi over 3 dinners. The phone was always answered and the lady spoke very good English to handle our table reservation and food requirements. The food was...really amazing and tasty from Starter (Shared Nordic Platter) to Mains/Sides (Steaks) to Desserts. The Chef tends to be heavy on the salt, so ask for no/less salt if you prefer so. Wine selection was decent yet pricey like the rest of Finland. Service was efficient considering that only one server was in the house. Remember that that are two Roka in town and close to each other, we went to the other Roka by error with Taxi. Roka team, we will be back.More

We ate traditional Finnish salmon soup during lunch time. We had to come back for dinner and took roasted salmon and ginger-lemonrisotto. One of the best dining place in Rovaniemi.
