HUIPPUHYVÄÄ

Palvelu oli todella ystävällistä ja joustavaa. Menusta sai enemmän kuin vatsan täyteen. Kitkan muikut, poronkäristys ja leipäjuusto lakkahillolla olivat täyskymppi!

❤︎❤︎❤︎❤︎❤︎

SUUSSASULAVAN PEHMEÄÄ JA MAUKASTA RUOKAA

Ruoka oli niin taivaallisen suussasulavaa ja pehmeää, maukasta ja juuri sellaista kuin poron fileen pitää olla. Siihen ei olisi voinut mitään lisätä tai ottaa pois. Täydellistä.
Ravintolassa oli leppoisa tunnelma.

❤︎❤︎❤︎❤︎❤︎

MAAILMAN PARAS RIISTARAVINTOLA

Tuotteet ruokiin ovat todella laadukkaita, maittavia ja paikallista. Lisäksi kokki on aivan täysin oikea henkilö alalla ja tekee niin maittavat ruoat, että melkein ilonkyynel vierähtää poskelle. Nälkäiseksi et jää ja voit kokea pohjoisen antimet lautasella.

Exotic And Pleasant

The waitress was kind and welcoming. The food was tasty and exotic. The dishes were a bit pricey but that is understandable considering the quality. The desserts were unique and also delicious. The mood / ambience was homey and relaxing. I would 100% recommend this place to anyone that is visiting Ruka. :)

Best steak ever tasted

This was our second visit to Ruka and my husband was excited to try the bear after missing out on going the last time we were on holiday. We decided to book here for my 40th birthday meal and we were not disappointed. I even had to change the time of the booking via online chat and this was sorted no problems at all. I ordered the elk steak and my husband had the “legendary” bear. The bear was delicious but the elk steak was out of this world and just melted in the mouth. Whilst my husband was happy with the bear he was jealous of the elk steak. For dessert I had the bread cheese (which is essentially halloumi in a Dulce de lace sauce). It blew my mind as the flavours went so well together and is something I have recreated since coming home. My husband had the brownie which was rich and moist. The staff and service was superb and the restaurant itself is very cosy. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and it was genuinely one of the best meals I have ever had.

The vey best for delicious game meat

I ate here 3 times despite, I might add , the cost. The Saute Bear was delicious as wqs the Elk pepper steak and also Elk Carpaccio. I loved the Diime cake but at 12 Euros could have done without. I thought the decor was wonderfully folksy. People from Helsinki like to eat here too. The service was ok but not exceptional. Would I go again yes!!

The bear experience

There aren't many restaurants that offer a bear dish. Here they have one. Is it worth the 70€? Perhaps, depends what you are looking for. There was decent amout of meat and it was very tasty. So yes, if you are looking for something you don't eat or even can't get for every day try it, we enjoyed the experience. Otherwise the portion was nothing special, some mash and pickled cucumber. So if you don't specially want bear meat, you can get better, fine dining options for less from other restaurants. Oh and service was fine but interior bit kitschy.

Poor experience

This dinner was supposed to be the highlight of the holiday, but as a Ruka classic for years, the restaurant no longer lives up to its reputation. The menus are ok, the food is adequate, the main course is a little better, but the desserts are floundering on a daily basis (not at all worth the overall price!) and ruin overall. The wines in the wine package always had to be asked separately and were meshed up by the waiter and served wrongd. Paid almost 100 €/person and gave feedback in a constructive spirit to the above matter fresh (can't fix it yet). After that, there was no more service, and we were left alone at the table. They started to close the place and only served another group (there were no others present), we went to ask the cashier for the bill and wondered about the bad customer experience again. that's when the waiter apologized and said, everyone's taste is not the same (huh?), so there was no eye for the game. We went to our place for a coffee. The owner also has a pizzeria and a hamburger places (+ Kotipizza & Subway) on the same side of the fell, which are good, but the quality has dropped sharply in this flagship restaurant. So fast food is fine. We will not come again, will not suffer because of the poor value for money. Can't take this place anymore, it's not the best game restaurant in Finland.

Really don’t understand the hype

Really don’t understand the rating on this restaurant, given the perfomance on 24.11, was it off season or what, but: - 3 course menu, bottle of Amarone, only couple wines were sold by bottle. When bottle was opened the cork was dry as sand! Given

Very good

We were eating here in October on a day the very first snow fell down in Ruka. All tastes were carefully combined abd the foid was great; however, I definitely recommed an appetizer or even two before the main course if you are hungry. The

Die-licious!

We ordered the Tunturi set menu. Appetizer: Muikku was fresh and the perfect bite sized, it’s deep fried crispy-licious with it’s dill infused dip. Main course: Tender reindeer fillets. I’m happy with the doneness that was presented to me even though I wasn’t asked about

the most famous restaurant for a good reason

If you can, book a table in advance as it tends to be fully booked often. The food was the best we ate in Ruka.

Fantastic Food, but wear a thick jumper!

I dined here with my family last week. The food is absolutely wonderful - probably one of the best meals I've ever had. I had the Reindeer fillets, my husband had Elk and my daughter had the Verdace (a freshwater fish). All of us were

Nearly brilliant

First of all: do not get fooled by the location of this place. A bit off the core of Ruka village and right next to a busy slope lies this nice and cosy restaurant. Food is tasty and fresh and the prices are not too

Very good quality Finnish

Very good quality Finnish food, including game and fish. Nice atmosphere, friendly service. A bit pricey but worth every cent.

The best place ever! Elk steak is delicious.

The best place ever! Our third time here, we would go everyday if we could! It’s a lovely short walk from Ruka ski in hotels. Lovely decor and the staff are all very friendly and welcoming. The vendace is delicious, we have it to start

Great experience and staff

Great experience, friendly staff. They have a lot of unique local dishes (I recommend trying the bear, it is pricy but a unique meal to enjoy) and the place is decorated very authentic.

Really nice place, amazing food.

We went here after a days skiing. We hadn’t booked but the host was very friendly, externally helpful and arranged a table for us. The food was amazing, so well cooked and well presented. A small hiccup with starters (probably down to our language barrier!)

What a way to end the year

We booked the table for New Year’s Eve following reading the review on trip advisor. It is situated a 5 min walk away from Ruka village (follow the road that the ski bus leaves the village) Having read that they served bear meat and the

One of the best meals I’ve ever had.

We booked online and walked the 10mins from Ruka. The restaurant had a quiet atmosphere and lovely Finnish decor. There was a small amount of choice in the menu and I could have chosen anything as they all sounded delicious. I went for a three

Excellent food and friendly service

We had sauteed reindeer and friend vendaces. Both were super tasty and even best we've ever had!! Service was friendly and quick. For the dessert we recommend squeaky cheese - really delicious.

The best wild game restaurant around

This place will not boast with its atmosphere or fancy interiors. It does not have to. The food speaks for itself. We were two families with teens and on the menu everyone found something that pleased their taste. As the main course I myself ate

Some very good points but also some not so good

We ate here as a group of 14 adults and upon arrival our table was ready. The restaurant is slightly out of town, about minutes walk from the main ski centre. The decor is typical Ruka, all wood beams and log-cabin feel. Overall the premises

Amazing Reindeer

Waited months for my visit to this restaurant and it didn’t disappoint. The Reindeer Steak was simply outstanding as were all our friends meals. This for me is the best restaurant in Ruka!
