Comfortable restaurant with good service. Food is focused in tastes of Lapland and was very tasty. The menu could however benefit from having a choice of beef steaks to compliment reindeer options.

I must say that this is the best dinner I've had anywhere in Finland so far! I had the suprise menu, as part of a staycation at Kuopio's Lapland Hotel. I had no previous knowledge of the place, so the whole experience really exceeded all my expectations. The service was impeccable and all the different flavours just perfect. Very good winepairings as well. I just have to say bravo! Highly highly recommended!

This was a good, relaxed meal. We had the Surprise Menu as part of a staycation in the Lapland Kuopio Hotel, and it was a delight. Several very tasty, well-presented, and imaginative dishes, often using local root vegetables – including some super smoked beets – with decent wine pairings (I even enjoyed the dessert wine, which is a major achievement for me), all served up by the friendly and attentive Teemu (leastways, I think he was Teemu).

Decent social distancing managed in these difficult times.

I would probably have gone for a “sharp forest berries” approach rather than chocolate - and popcorn (?!) – to accompany the sweet baked apple ice cream we had as a closer, but on reflection this may have been the chef’s conscious choice for a January menu, when fresh berries are a little hard to come by.

Enjoyable, and recommended. It was good to see quite a few people eating there, too. It would be a shame if good cooking and service like this went to waste.

I had the business dinner with my Chinese friend in there. This few months old restarant was nicely decorated with the Lappish style-the spirit was very good.The menu was interesting and full of different natural flavors from Finland. The wine list was exellent and obviously made in a professional way. The flavors were pure and integrated nicely together. We had the different small dishes as a starter an the second course was reindeer. The dessert was excotic spruce ice cream.
As told in headers-close to perfection. Higly recommended
