Very nice restaurant, in Finnish style. Wood everywhere, even the roof. Good starter, and good meet, but wine too expensive. I understand Helsinki is expensive but the price of the wine is too much considering the quality

A good choice to try Lappish/Finnish food, for example elk or reindeer. Reindeer filet tastes really good and it is very lean and tender but is costs 40 euro for a small portion, 140gr. If you want to try local food it is a good choice but only if you have a large budget: no less than 50/person with a... More

Amazing furniture like an old cottage in the forest of the north, very warm and cosy. Good typical local foods. I tried the mixed starter and rein fillet. Good selection of wines. The starter was a bit poor in quantity and wines a bit expensive. Total was 90 E each without dessert. I recommend it.

Our first meal in Helsinki, a complete winner. The shared starter gives an excellent taster of many Finnish traditional foods. The quality of the food was very good. My husband and I had the shared main platter and again excellent food and varied but would have liked a little more. Great atmosphere and would highly recommend. Be aware Finland is... More

In a cosy setting based on the inside of a loghouse you can enjoy the original tastes of Lapland . My friends and I shared the Lappish game selection (reindeer and elk) which was delicious . Maybe not enough for a pair of big men with an appetite , but the food was excellent , as was the service .... More

We wanted to sample some traditional Finnish food and this place specialises in dishes from Lapland, so if you're a bit sentimental about Bambi, don't come here. However, you'll be missing out as the food was really tasty! It was busy and the service was just a little slow for our liking but that seems to be a recurring theme... More

Brought by a local of Lapland to experience true genuine Lappish cuisine - reindeer stew. It was amazing food and the ambiance and service were great. This was a first night in Finland experience and could not have been a better start to my holiday. The cheese and cloudberry jelly desert was a fitting end to a wonderful evening.

I was brought here by a local to try some traditional Lapland food. The service was great and the ambience charming. I tried the salmon soup, which was excellent and then we shared the meat plater - reindeer and elk. The reindeer was perfectly cooked, although not entirely to my taste nor my stomach's. It was certainly a great introduction... More
