Fresh local food

Visit our Restaurant in Utsjoki in the far north of Lapland. We are located 8 km outside of the Utsjoki village, right on the bank of the famous Teno River. We serve you traditional food from Lapland, like salmon from the river, white fish from our lakes or reindeer from our own herd. Come enjoy these dishes with a magnificent view on the Teno River! And of course, we can accommodate any dietary restrictions that you may have – just ask us!

Besides these traditional dishes, we also offer your favourite vegetarian or bolognese pasta, kebab and salads.

We also serve delicious pastries that we prepare with local berries, ice creams, and of course a nice cup of coffee, espresso or cappuccino to accompany this.

Please let us know and we will adjust the dish for your needs. There is no embarrassing request – we’ve truly got you for all your needs.

We are proud that our restaurant in Utsjoki has received the certificate of gluten free service from the Finnish Coeliac Society.

We offer homemade cakes in (almost) any shape and taste that you can think of. Give us a call or email to discuss the possibilities.
