It is the best place to be surrounded by nature, "panorama" restaurant is so cozy, that you want to come back all the time! Salmon soup is the best in town!

After lot of road signs telling that they have the best donut in town, we took a coffee break there. Scenery is great, because you can see all the fells and there is a small tower that you can climb in to. But the donut was not anything special and I would not take that one again. Maybe they are...

The restaurant is located on the top of Kaunispää. You can drive there by car. On the top there is a little wooden tower from which you can see tens of kilometres away. Also in the tower there are marked directions and distances to certain mountains, some of which are on the Soviet side. Wouldn't miss this if I were... More

Lovely, well functioning café / restaurant at the top of the ski lift on Kaunispaa fjell. Always good for a tea/coffee/beer or hot chocolate (with mint liquer!) and a bite to eat in the middle of your skiing day.

We had a joyful lunch here on a cold but sunny day in March. My sons and I had hamburgers which were very delicious and my husband had salmon sandwich. It was a busy place, but the service was fast. I recommend Huippu to all who go to Saariselka.

This restaurant in the top of the hill has a superb view and a very tasty Salmon soup. We went there twice just because of this soup, in addition it is not expensive! Strongly recommend, specially if it is a sunny day.

This was a great spot to warm up and have lunch during a day of skiing. The menu is quite varied - you can have anything from a hamburger to reindeer stew, and either a snack or a full meal. Our group ordered quite a few different items and they were all delicious. There is a nice shop attached, with... More

Excellent location, quality and price meet in one place. During few visits here we tried arctic charr, reindeer (poronkäristys) and veil stuffed with Lapland cheese and reindeer. All superb and very affordable considering the average prices in Finnish restaurants. And you end up full as well. In mid-winter I recommend to have late lunch from 2 to 4pm to enjoy... More

This is my reqular stop while downhill skiing. The salmon soup is really tasty. 50% salmon, 50% potatos and rich creamy broth. (However not a cream soup.) Out of some +10 times i have eaten here, once received a salmon soup that tasted microwaved but this was some years ago (hence 4/5 and not full 5).

The restaurant is a combination buffet and restaurant. I had a veal dish which was very good. The view out the windows is amazing of the snow covered fells. A great souvenir shop adjoins it.
