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.

Food is excellent. I loved that restaurant has gluten free option for delicious smoked reindeer pasta. Service is very nice. View is so beautiful! I will definitely come again here.

Because of the remote location I didn't expect more than getting my stomach full, but I was surprised when I walked in and saw the interior. Such lovely and idyllic restaurant, good but not too expensive food with natural ingredients, and most of all the...happiest customer service. They offer also accommodation, safaris and all in holiday packages. Great place in truly beautiful surroundings!More

Everything served at this restaurant is prepared with care. All types of dietary requirement are catered for and I was able to enjoy some amazing dairy free desserts. The locally sourced reindeer was amazing, cooked in many different ways, but the cold smoked reindeer was...probably my favourite, closely followed by the slow cooked highland cattle.More

After a 10 hour drive i decided to check out what restaurants utsjok had to offer. After reading reviews i ended up going to the Aurora restaurant down by tanaelva (at least what we call it in Norway). And let me tell you i was...not dissapointed. Lovely place with great view over the river. The headchef gave me a warm welcome and guided me though the very interesting menu. I ended up going for a pumpkin soup as a starter and "finnbiff" with mashed potato and lingonberry as maincourse. All the ingrediens are locally harvested and combined in this rich and tastefull meal. It had a innovative homemade feel to it where all the ingredients had a purpose and combined made it into a fullfilling taste of nordic wilderness.More

All the food here is locally sourced and is delicious. Certainly not what you'd expect given the remoteness of the location!

Reindeer kebab! What a WONDERFULL idea.. Our family has visited there many times and never been disappointed. They serve gluten free food also. Lady of the house Tiina have always some time to chat with us about the area and life in there but we...do not want to bother her to much cos she is also the heart of the kitchen. Local chef with local ingredients cooking with heart. 6/5More

Unfortunately the restaurant is closed for dine-in service at the moment due to COVID restrictions, but they do offer a great take-away service instead. I ordered the Seitan Kebab with fries and it was absolutely delicious. The food was still warm and the portion was...very generous. Very nice flavours and the kebab sauces were a nice addition. Will definitely be ordering that again. 10/10 vegetarian kebab meal!More

They recommend us this restaurant to eat local food and going there has been the best decision. We ate sauteed reindeer and cod from the artic ocean and we can only say DELICIOUS. We also ate sticky date cake and rhubarb pie that Tiina recommended...us and it was also amazing. The place is wonderful and the views are incredible. We recommend 100% this restaurant. If we come back to the area, we will for sure repeat. Thank you for everything!More

I've had the pleasure to dine at the Restaurant Aurora Holidays a few times now and each time was a fantastic experience. There is a great choice of dishes from tasty Reindeer Kebab (which is made in house - even the sauces!) to warming soups...and homemade sweet treats. The restaurant has great service and will accommodate special dietary requests. And to top it all off the view from the large, river-facing windows is spectacular year-round. If you're lucky, you might spot some local wildlife!More
