While the SkyOunasvaara hotel is so-so, the restaurant was absolutely impressive... less the ambience, but the menu and its local specialties. The amuse gueule was already a nice surprise, the house salad was sprinkled with edible flowers, full of flavors and a light oil dressing. The reindeer two ways was astonishing... the meat en point, the sides fresh and delicious.... More

Would travel back to Rovaniemi only to try their wonderful dishes again. Everything was great, the atmospehere, the foods and of course the view of the snowy hills of Lapland. Definitely, once there, should try out the reindeer dishes!

Kaupungin ainoa gourmet -paikka. Kokeile 7 lajin yllätysmenua. The only fine dining place in the city. Simply the best.

Really good food of high quality when we were there. We like adventurous food and this fit the bill and there was enough choice for the children who have less adventurous tastes.

Portions are small and possibly do not take away a big hunger. The taste and quality of food and service is excellent. A very memorable place. Lacks a/c, so pretty hot in summer.

A bit old renowated hotel, quiet and nice views in the top of the hill. Large rooms for families with sauna are large enough. Breakfast was good in quality and selectivity. Possible choise if not wanted to be in the city centre.

Beautiful delicious food. We ate the tasting menu with the heavenly wines and it was a truly heavenly experience! Very young and ambitious chef and very good service altogether. Plus a wonderful view! Possibly the best meal I've ever had.

We were a family of six, including two 80 year old grannies and our 7 year old kid. Arrived 15 minutes early, seated with no fuss. Kid kept busy with drawing materials - something I haven't seen other high end restaurants do, and I really appreciate that. Great views and great food - the pike/perch was sensational and so was...

If I had a restaurant, I would hire your cook! A delicious dinner in a really beautiful viewpoint restaurant. We had a tasting menu of various dishes of the menu and absolutely each and every one of the dishes was great! And the self-made rye bread offered with the wood was the best surprise with its childhood-taste. Loved the place,... More

Thank you!! My apologies that my answer is late. Nice to hear that you've enjoyed your dinner here with us! The tasting menu is really nice for that you can taste many different lappish flavors.

Restaurant Lapland Hotel Sky Ounasvaara is fine dining dinner restaurant, which has been one of the best restaurants in Finland for many years. Restaurant has fine Lappish cuisine with lots of local and Arctic ingredients. Admire the stunning natural scenery stretching out to the horizon through our panoramic windows while savouring the culinary pleasures created by our kithen dream team. Restaurant is located on the top of the Fell Ounasvaara. After dinner we suggest to make a visit to our roof terrace with stunning views to surrounding nature full of fells and rivers. Location is best in the town for observing the Northern Lights from mid-August until the end of March. You can enjoy the Midnight sun in Summer in June and July. Table reservations are needed to make in advance. A warm welcome for a visit!
