I was brought here by a local to try some traditional Lapland food. The service was great and the ambience charming. I tried the salmon soup, which was excellent and then we shared the meat plater - reindeer and elk. The reindeer was perfectly cooked, although not entirely to my taste nor my stomach's. It was certainly a great introduction... More

The decor of the restaurant is pretty artic. Ice the wooden lampshade and ceiling. The service is excellent and food comes really fast. We ordered two people share entrée and the shared main, to try reindeer and elk everything. Super filling as the meat is really lean and high in protein. Highly recommend if you want to experience something you... More

Lappi was fantastic with a cozy, warm atmosphere, friendly service, and excellent traditional food. I had the salmon soup and shared the meat platter with my date. The elk tenderloin was our favorite, but everything was delicious. Definitely worth a visit for a nice cozy night in Helsinki!

Came here with travel companion on a long layover in Helsinki. We wanted to try reindeer and this restaurant got the best reviews, and we understood why! The food was fantastic - filet of reindeer was mouth-watering, and it came with delicious seasonal veggies. We also tried a few local beers which were outstanding. We are from the US so... More

Not sure what true lapland food was before coming here, but the menu is reindeer or fish. I had some salmon soup which was great and reindeer stew with mash. The service is very friendly and menu's come in all languages. So a pretty touristy place, but still a nice experience

Celebrated my 25th birthday here with my family and was very pleased with the experience. We were warmly welcomed, food came really quick and was delicious, and the atmosphere was peaceful. Staff is very friendly. If you are visiting Finland but not going to Lapland, you need to visit here to get a true finnish experience!

Genuine Lappland atmosphere with good food and service. My guests were very happy to try exotic food as the menus come with many languages and therefore easier to order. Coffee served in "kuksa" (wooden cup) is also a must!

Thank Sami E
