I had late lunch with my friend, we both had mushroom pasta dish. Service was good, maybe a bit too friendly, and food was ok. Pasta a bit undercooked. Company in table next to us were very satisfied. Nice, cosy and quiet atmosphere at that...More

This is a restaurant in the heart of the Rukavillage. The hotel is probably the oldest, but at least the public areas, including the restaurant seem refreshed. Friendly staff. No booking required. The menu ranges from inexpensive to quite pricey. Ordered reindeer filet, which was...More
