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

It was the best and the tastiest food in my life 😍 We ordered a reindeer soup, reindeer calf’s liver and reindeer steak. Traditional saami family food with its history. Nice place, perfect food and service! Highlight recommend this place ❤️👌🏼!

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

Ei jatkoon: jos pitää premium-hintoja ruuassa niin soisi sen näkyvän myös lautasella ja palvelussa. Surkein syömäni suolamöykky, 20 puolukkaa ja 4 suolakurkkua millinsiivuilla. Veti Lapin Nila jälleen etelän miestä ruualla turpiin. Kierrä kaukaa. Saat huoltsikalta parempaa ja ystävällisempää palvelua. 2 bojoa on kehu Please: do...not enter. Typical tourist magnetic. Food is high expensive whith out any good tast. Or if you like tast of salt. Then It's your place.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.
