Came here 5 years ago and had the sautéed reindeer. Came here to see Santa, had to come back and have it again. The restaurant had been decorated and looked great. Ordered the reindeer, bit pricey €26.50 but that's the same everywhere in Rovaniemi. The...More

Service was slow and the two waitresses serving us didn't seem to communicate so we had to repeat our order to each one. Unfortunately there were a few children who were Playing in the play area and were extremely loud. Neither the parents nor the...More

For dinner this restaurant would have been ok twenty years ago when people didn't know any better. Slow service and overcooked mushy vegetables. I got the feeling that this place lacks ambition and they don't even try to impress you with good food. I've been...More

We were appalled, given the reputation, but perhaps that dates back to a much earlier time. In Lapland we expected the reindeer to be fresh and well-prepared but this reindeer was touch and very gamey, full of fat and entirely inedible. We did not send...More

I was alone on the restaurant and have a good food and service. The waiters talk together hole time, it was not so kind.

For a comprehensive selection of Lappish starters and specialities go for the variety of starters for two. As the kitchen was out of "Reindeer Two Ways" I had a Reindeer shank instead. The meat was so tender that it fell of the bone. Very good...More
