Main courses were amazing, reindeer tenderloin could not be smoother and salmon had piquant smoky taste. Starter of tastes was plentiful (too much so?) and provided a nice tasting of different Finnish food. One of the staff was more junior, but all around - absolutely...wonderful experience.More

We came here for dinner and were really happy about the food and the atmosphere. Everything we ordered (reindeer carpaccio, smoked fish, shark, roasted reindeer, desert, wine) was of extraordinary quality, served on hot plates and with nice details. The kitchen chef is an artist....We totally recommend to come here in the cold season and enjoy the feeling of sitting in a wooden cabin somewhere in Lappland!More

We stopped in for dinner while staying a week in Helsinki, and were very impressed! The restaurant decorum is reminiscent with the traditional Lappi theme - and is unique to any place I've ever dined. The food is top notch - in fact, the meal...I had probably rates in my top 5, maybe even top 3 in my 40+ years on the planet. Highly recommend making a reservation, and definitely try the grilled reindeer. The chef here is very talented - and the service is as good (or better) than you'll receive anywhere in the city. We can't wait to go back.More

Great restaurant! Went in search of typical Finnish cuisine whilst on holiday in Helsinki and a local recommended Lappi. We were not disappointed! Loved the selection of appetisers and the traditional salmon soup was delicious. Nice selection of drinks and a reasonable price too. Service...was also attentive without being intrusive. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.More

Calm and quiet restaurant at Kamppi where you can get great reindeer meat. Staff was polite, surely not disturbing the customers. Service time was comparatively long which may seem negative initially but it actually led to a lower tempo dinner where you eat your meal...peacefully. Staff said that reindeer meat is halal and they don't use any alcoholic marination or sauce, but it's worth checking every time. Surely recommend!More

Food was well above average - never seen my kids eating reindeer like that! Magical atmosphere. Awesome beers. Great service.

Visited this place the first time. We both had reindeer fillet which was perfectly cooked and the taste was very good. Nice to see that you may get decent food of Lappland in Helsinki where you maybe would not expect that. Nice athmosphere. Maybe I...visit again.More

Just delicious!!! Very tasty and well presented. Roated reindeer was perfect, very juicy and soft. Fish of the day with vegetables was also excellent. Apple pie (dessert of the day) was a perfect ending. Service was very polite, ambiance is very cozy and well decorated....Highly recommend this place.More

Tasted 2 mains, one reindeer and one fish dish. Both were very good quality and tasted good. Tried 1 cheese dessert, it was amazing. Food 4,5/5 Place looks very special in Helsinki, like old Finnish "tupa". Furniture unfortunately isn't the most comfortable. Place: 4/5 Service...was very professional but a bit distant. Service: 4/5More

Yes they served a Bear stew when we were there, best to check the menu though because it does chat.
