Food was very tasty and service was friendly and professional. Our waitress was very helpful and funny. We recommend the restaurant to everyone. Ja vielä Suomeksi tämä ravintola on todellakin käymisen arvoinen.
Poro is under new management as of a year or so ago, and wow, it's good. We went for the Christmas Eve buffet, and although we have visited Lapland many times, we wondered what to expect. The short answer to what we found was everything....A huge and totally delightful array of starters, so many I just could not try everything. I cannot imagine anyone from any country not being stunned by the variety and quality.Many Finnish/Lappish things and a good variety of things pleasing to all pallets. The main course was plentiful and nicely spiced for Christmas. Casseroles, which for British people are more like mash, were swede and also carrot, spiced and very tasty. Lappish potatoes and Finnish Christmas Ham. WOW!! Desserts, if you could fit one in were also lovely and then chocolates and coffee.The very family atmosphere was relaxed and had a nice gentle pace. I highly recommend.More
I visited here already in the winter time but this year they are also serving lunch in September. For 12,50€ you get homemade soup, variety of salad table and a main course which was whole white fish today. Everything was fresh and absolutely delicious!
Last...winter I really liked their vegetarian/vegan pulled oat stew and of course you should try their fish dishes as they are serving Lappish food with good taste.
Will definitely come back!More
Unfortunately, the owner and the menu have changed. The price level is slightly more expensive. Many favorite left out like reindeer fillet. Good starter, blin which is ”more like traditional Russian” food. Atmosphere is excotic and staff is friendly.
The location is a bit sideways.
This was my third visit here (twice on a previous trip to Äkäslompolo), and have never had a bad experience. At first glance of the menu, it is clear that it is not the cheapest ravintola in Äkäslompolo, if budget is important, then it is...not for you.
If, however, you want to experience some of the best food in the area, then it is for you. The reindeer shank was melt in your mouth beautiful, and the salmon tournedos was absolutely delicious.
Service very good, and the staff were attentive and helpful - their English was excellent (as it is everywhere in the town, to be fair), so despite my attempts at Finnish we still got what we wanted!More
