We stayed at this restaurant during an incentive trip in March 2017 and we had our last dinner at this restaurant. Officially the restaurant was closed for guests but they reopened for our small group for this evening and we had real great dinner. The room had an open fire/oven and they cooked salmon and reindeer filet for us. It... More

Had a preordered dinner with colleagues and business associates. Arrived at evening so it was totally dark but can imagine the view being amazing during lighter hours. The menu was very traditional finnish menu, including a reindeer main and a cloudberry dessert. Food was good and the service was excellent, the staff is very friendly. If visiting Saariselkä this place... More

Situated on the top of the fell above Saariselka and reached by walking, chairlift or the ski bus there are amazing panoramic views down to the village and across the landscape to Russia in the East and as far as you can see across hills and forests in Finland. We observed spectacular sunrises/sunsets from here and the ice and snow... More

The restaurant is conveniently located on top of skiing slopes, which makes it a favourite spot for skiers. Delicious everything, especially hot coffee with one of their numerous pastries after a day on the slopes!

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.
