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

During holiday we ate twice in this restaurant. First time: creamy salmon soup (tasty and lovely) and hamburger second time (lovely burger). Service was very friendly and good. Hope to come back once

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

Yes, they do. My wife is on a glutenfree diet and her choice of the menu was adapted to her needs.
