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.

We reserved a table in oktober for 31 th of december and got the least attractive table of the restaurant. The woman that served us played being nice. After we got the menu we we’re supposed to immediately know what we would like to drink....She made a face when we told het that we hadn’t decided yet. A minute later she was back to ask again. It felt like she was in a hurry. The food was horrible. I ordered reindeer. It wasn’t fresh. It was tasteless and very salted. With one pickle, a tiny bit of marmelade and too much mashed potatoes. The bear and deer burger did not have a special taste and the pepper sauce in the bear pastry was dominant. Afterwards the waitress asked if we were finished while one of us was still eating. Again she looked offended when we pointed out that we were not finished yet. Than we were totally ignored. So after half an hour waiting we stood up to pay at the cash register ourselves. The waitress suggested that we write something in their guestbook totally ignorant of the fact that we weren’t satisfied at all. By the way they ask 2 euros when you want to go to the toilets. !?More

Visited with a family of 4. Very tasty and large size pizzas for all of us. Friendly service staff and in top of all a nice selection of cold drinks so can't wish for more after a day out skiing

Had the burger with reindeer meat after a long day x-country skiing. A great experience, very fast service and a huge, cold beer to go with it. Recommended!

After dire hotel food, we were told about Otso, thank God we tried it. Fabulous. The food was amazing and the Gentleman waiter was wonderful and welcoming. We weren't rushed and they had menus in English which others did not. Chicken Fajitas, hmmmmmm, delicious. Highly...recommend this place. Sat Evening and we had no trouble getting a table about 8.15pm. Give it a go, you won't be disappointedMore

We were here twice. First time food was ok, but not special (reindeer fajitas tasted better than reindeer pizza). Due to convinient location to our cabin we gave the place second chance and ordered reindeer pot pie and stuffed pork minute steak. Unfortunately, the steak...has a texture of rubber and pot pie was too creamy and too spicy, reindeer meat taste was certainly lost. I am a bit surprised the restaurant is placed #2 out of 14 in Ylläsjärvi. Sorry guys, but not again.More

Great food and great service, also in off-season. Wild Mushroom Pot Pie was amazing, also the ”Ylläs” pizza was one of the best salmon pizzas ever! Visit and you will not be dissapointed!

One of the few nice looking places in the not so tourist populated area of Ylläsjärvi. The interior and service nice. Food less than mediocre. Red wine way too warm. Music too loud and not very ambient.

I last visited this restaurant 2 years ago and although under new ownership and although not as good as on previous visits still offered decent value for money. The pizzas are particularly good but the large range of burgers had been virtually cut from the...menu.Decent range of drinks on offer but again not as good as previous visits.More

Ever get the feeling when you walk into a restaurant that “ it looks promising “ well we did and it was . The service was prompt but not intrusive, from a staff that enjoyed their job. The food was outstanding, the menu was very...comprehensive and I’m sure would please anyone. Finally found a “ dark beer “ that was outstanding.More

Sheltered here while waiting for the Kolari-Levi bus (the stop does have a sign, which you might not spot when it is buried in a mound of snow. This stop is called Ylläsjärvi Otsonpesä, which is referring to the souvenir shop next door- the stop...is right outside.) They have a menu in English. I had some Tomato-Bacon soup with flatbread and butter, garnished and delicious, with a bit of texture to it. Good! Starter size 9.5€ was fine. Service was attentive and caring. There are racks near the door and further around the corner for bags and jackets, plus blankets available if you need (was a warm -3 day, didn't need them) Importantly: free WiFi, worked great. Also was able to use the power point by the table to charge phone. (I asked first.)More

It is a restaurant opposite to the large supermarket and the Lapland Safaris office in the village of Yllas. We were here for a late afternoon snack. Staff was very friendly and they have multi-language menus. We saw other customers eating pizzas - looked fresh...and os large portion. Pizza looked tempting but we chose a salmon tortilla to share - which was tasty and also of large portion although we thought there was a bit too much onion (but what do you expect for the variety of vegetable in Lapland’s deep winter). We recommend here for casual meals.More
