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.

Friendly service but a little overpriced. We both had the reindeer steak which was lovely not too sure about the cloudberry and squeaky cheese pudding.

A cosy restaurant. A simple menu with not too many options made it easy to choose what to order. Main course, beef of the day, reindeer sirloin steak, was soft and tasty. Bilberry ice cream was delicious.

Very surprised by how well the reindeer was grilled. Very nice medium rare, absolutely delicious. The wine wasn't bad either. Recommended!

Excellent Lappland food in friendly and cosy athmosphere. Particularly, the reindeer tapas was a nice experience. The main courses reindeer shank and reindeer sausages were tasty, too, and for sure did not leave a hint of hunger.

I have eaten some portions of liver in past years but this one was very good or even best ever I have eat. Service was good enough as well. Reindeer tapas was good as starter.

We wanted to try something typical from the area and by chance end up here. Exquisite meal ! delicious !!! the soup that they advertise was as, or even better than my favorite entrée back home (France). Just follow the advice of the lady that...welcomes you there (you can't miss her she looks like Elsa from Frozen we are going back tonight so i'll probably leave her name on my next post) she will gives you very good advice to have a delicious exquisite meal !! The dish for 2 was quite good (the reindeer) i still prefer the soup but that one was also good! The dessert that we chose was not really of my taste to be honest but well quite different to what we have try before (we'll have to try the rest tonight) Note: Levi restaurants close very early (about 20h or 21h) so if you are late you will probably miss it Price: well when you compare to the restaurants near by the price is fair and good even if i was not expecting something this good for the current price. (i compare to real restaurants not fast food!)More

Good reindeer dishes. The restaurant is beautifully decorated. Great service too. Also conveniently located in Levi’s town centre near the ski slopes and shops. We had slow cooked reindeer with mash potatoes and reindeer steak. Nice and quality food.

We dont know about the food but based on the servise I would not recommend this place! They dont take reservations and we were ready to wait in a bar next door but the waitress would not wellcome us back. We tried and a large...table was allmost done but when asked from the servant she said that they are full allready, but the customers told us that they are leaving. Witch is totally differnt that she said before. Maybe they did not want US in for some reason? Or maybe thei earned enough for the evening. If you are in doubd go to the nearby PIHVIPIRTTI.More

We had a dinner with big hopes becausse of positive comments. We were dissappointed, because taste of food was nothing special. Reindeer meatballs were dry, a bit hard and did not have the typhical good taste of reindeer meat. Sausage was a bit better, but...at average level too. Pannacotta was maybe one of the most tasteless pannacottas I have ever eaten. Service was not fast but quite polite. We will not visit again.More

We enjoyed this restaurant so much. Cannot wait to go back. Lovely staff and super comfortable. Best food we had during our whole trip. I still think of the reindeer sausages and mash.

We chose to visit here for our “last night” even though we were half board in our hotel!! Wow!! I am so glad we did. Service was first class and the staff know all there is to know about the menu. We had tapas for...two as did our friends. And other friends had the salad to start! All beautifully presented, and so tasty!! Our main courses were a mix of burgers, meatballs, sausages and braised fillet and they were all divine!!!! All of the meals were so so tasty, 6 clean plates!! I cannot recommend this place highly enough.... do not be put off that they don’t take reservations, they will accommodate you fairly quickly and there is a waiting area!! Everything is centred around the family’s reindeer herd, including the skins decorating, the antlers, - if you genuinely want a local meal, and for the money to go a local family run business rather than a multi national then a visit here is a must!! Keep doing what you are doing guys!! It’s fantastic!!!More

NiliPoro is a local restaurant with interesting origins. They serve reindeer meet from own herd using recipes from owner's mother. The food is exceptional, so is the place. It is not cheap but worth it.

Burger would need some cheese or extra mayo so it would be perfekt. But it is absolutely worth to taste.
