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.

The food was excellent. Reindeer shank was very delicious. Also I liked a lot lappish cheese with cloudberrys. I give the best ranks also for service.

Firstly, unless you are a group of 6. You can't reserve a table so you may have to time you visit right! There was only 2 of us, so they managed to find us a spot straight away. But it was busy and people were...coming and going all evening. The restaurant has a nice feel to it and the staff welcoming. We wanted to try some authentic Finnish food, and we are glad we chose Niliporo. I had the seafood platter to start and my OH had the morel soup. Both were lovely, but especially the soup! For main, we had the reindeer stake of the day and the slow braised reindeer. Both were outstanding. Whilst the reindeer was lovely, the star of the show was the traditional potatoes and veg that came with it! The cost is as expensive as a restaurant in the Alps and I thought was good value for money considering the quality of the food we had.More

We were searching for a dinner with deer meat and we found this. We had a very special food and everything was amazing. Try the mustard sauce, it was stunning! Super suggested!

What a lovelly place in the center of Levi. Very friendly staff. The restaurant has a very nice menu with all products home made. Variety of sausages, burger, sauteed raindeer, fish or raindeer platter. We had a lovelly meal. There is also a small cabin...inside the restaurant, as it looks private dining, that looks lovelly too.More

Great spot for dinner if you would like to try their Reindeer dishes! It's a very cozy restaurant, and it might be better to have your table reserved during the peak seasons. Service was great and food is delicious. We will be back if we...visit Levi again!More

Amazing traditional food. We all enjoyed trying reindeer, both as a steak and meatballs. Would definitely recommend people have a meal here if visiting Levi.

The restaurant is cute with a local dialectal touch, and the food here was good, esp the reindeer steak and hamburgers (liver was a little dry and nothing special), but service was slow and not engaging. The waiter was kind enough, but waiting time was...too long and not enough attention from staff, for example offering drinks etc. Average service, which is a pity. When it comes to speed and service, this restaurant might be able to learn a thing or two from the guys running the “Mono” restaurant by the south slope… completely different concept of course, but super efficient service regardless amount of people in the venue.More

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.

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.
