Do not expect too much from either lunch buffet or dinner buffet: the quality is good but nothing to remember after having eaten here. There is pretty much to choose from, though. But if you choose to have an a'la carte dinner, you might get positively surprised. Service is nice, but not always as good as would expect from a restaurant that has a good potential to be one of the best in the city in this price class.

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 it back; we just left it on the plate, but the staff was entirely indifferent. We would never even consider going back to this restaurant.

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 indeed. The waitresses were friendly and helpfull when prompted, but inexperienced.

We came here on our final night in Rovaniemi and were underwhelmed. Other reviewers said the food was good but the service terrible. The service was terrible but if you had a large group, it seemed like you got a little more attention. The waitress did apologize at the end for it taking so long,

We found the food to just be OK but not superb. The price, though a little overpriced, not as expensive as other restaurants in town.

We did try the bread cheese dessert and it was great! The best part of our meal. :)
