I spent one night in Rovaniemi, and wanted some dinner with a couple of fiends, but did not fancy going out to look for a restaurant. Fortunately the "Vaakuna" hotel offers a choice of two places, one standard chain eatery and the Frans & Cherie...More

This restaurant is located at the hotel Sokos Vakuuna, where we were staying. For me, it was the best food in town. I had the pepper steak and my husband, the black and white pork. Both were delicious!! I definitely recommend!
