Wow!!! I have asbolutely nothing and everything to say about this restaurant....but,woooow!!!! From starters to desert,wow! Service and attention to detail,wow! Our food was sooooo good! Am glad we had this on our 2nd night in Saariselka! Sooo tasty,flavourful,sooo yummy! We had mushrooms,potatoes,shrimp,deer cold cuts....we...ate it all and went for seconds! 🤣😂🤣😂 We were served by Paulina,who was also the duty manager that night...hehe...and she was friendly,warm,even when i was extra demanding 🤭🤭🤭 Thank You Paulina! My Irish coffee was sooo goooood...eish,am floored! Oh,this restaurant is located on One of Santa's Hotels...outside is quite picturesque! Inside,theres a big roaring fire...makes you feel like you are home!! The waiter for the table next to us was also as good as they get!! Yeah,am always open eyed! When in Saariselka, miss this only if you must,but its one of the best,if not the best of them!!! But,as the menu says," get a little bit of everything and share...." This is my best ravintola in Saariselka!!More

Try sauteed reindeer and malt french toast with cloudberries & vanilla ice cream. The friendly staff made my visit pleasant after a long day outdoors.

I had blinis for a sater, and it was crispy on the outside and soft in the inside. For main course I had perch coated with rye. It was delicious. My husband had salmon for a starter, and roedeer for the main course. The salmon...was fine, but the deerwas excuisite. We also had a very good amarone to go with the meal.More

We had a superb dinner here. The fish buffet is highly recommended. You can try different sorts of Finnish fish and Lapland potatoes. The dessert was also delicious. This is not the cheapest place, but worth it!

Some local businessman told me to go there and try the reindeer. Wasn't sure at first because i was the only client (turns out it's a slow season Just before christmas here), but i was really impress. First, i asked for a local cocktail and...the waitress gave me a drink with vidka, wild berry, syrop and citrus. I started really good (and i dont like vodka). After that, she suggested i take the reindeer filet with tounge in a brown sauce.... I was disgusted but she convinced me to take it and im sure glad i did! It tasted so Good and so soft. Plus, its just accross the chappel and 10 min walk from the ski station.More
