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.

Didn't find the place itself very comfortable but they made really good food. Specially reindeer fillets were near perfect. Service was nice too with friendly guys.

We ate here at two different occasions and enjoyed each time. Would go for a 3rd time as well! Food was delicious. We expected it to be good but it was even more full of flavours. Servixe was also good, very friendly staff.

Experience disappointing. Fish diving into a garlic sauce. Hamburger globally not bad but also with sauce hiding the taste of the meat or of the fish. The room was quite dark, thus it was quite difficult to read the menu.

We went there several times during our weekly stay. The game dishes where all very good and served with excellent gravy. Only the fish dish, which was also good without doubt, was just way too small for a fish dish in Finland, where fish is...really not the most expensive. I did not understand that. Particularly as even the waiter told us the kitchen was told about this fact several times and it is the same for all fish dishes. - Why? All in all a clear recommendation! I still gave 5 * as the taste of the fish was great, even though really not enough.More

Ok, not much choice of restaurants in Salla but no worries, this is great place to go multiple times. I liked the reindeer fillet so much I took same again - when in Lapland, have the reindeer. Nice combination of many different tastes. Also the...fish was excellent according to my wife. Starters great, perhaps preferable over desert (personal taste preference). Excellent service, good advice. And when in hurry just have a good beer at the pub with burger from the restaurant, also excellent choice!More

Cannot say enough good things about this place. It of course is the #1 restaurant in Salla, but could hold its own in any big city. The reindeer filet was one of the best meat dishes I've ever had. The bear stew was tender, flavorful...and delicious. The goat cheese ice cream- a MUST have. I wish this place was closer!! The service was excellent.More

Potential for five stars, but this time just not quite there. New bigger building, much higher capacity than before. Morel soup was better before - now adding ” bells and whistles” kind of destroyed the old favourite. Don’t get me wrong, it was not bad...but before it was absolutely fantastic. Chateaubriand was great, as well as perch burger. Reindeer fillet was good but gravy too salty, reindeer stew was ok but not at Chaine des Rotisseurs level as it has been before. Hopefully the good old level will be achieved again in the future!More

Had reindeer at Kiela when we visited with my wife. Was one of the best reindeer files I have ever had... and I have had a few. By far the best restaurant in Salla.

We were staying in the hotel at the same address for 4 nights, and had our breakfeast included. So we knew the place … we have had 3 times our diner here, and it is perfect ! Prices are at the Belgian level, quality is...very good. The menu card may look not very long, but you can easily have 4-5 completely different menus if you want.More
