Being a Finn, I want to inform travellers from abroad to get better experience from Lapland. In Saariselkä, there are many better places serving better food for the same money. I have tasted reindeer stew and meat in many occasions. This time the reindeer was dry and the mushed potato did not give glory to the dish. In addition, the... More

We weren't sure about trying Teerenpesa restaurant in Saariselka, as it's a sports bar, and has a karaoke bar, and disco, none of which we would normally go to, as we've grown out of all of these... however, it was practically next door to our hotel, and when it's minus 15 outside, you don't want to walk far! We visited... More

Have been many times for burgers and drinks, eating in the bar area. Food is good, however beware of the one very rude waiter! Always grumpy, unpleasant when ordering and even refused service one evening. Overall a good place to go whilst in Saariselka.

I had the sautéed reindeer, it was phenomenal! The local beer brew was delicious. My friends got the Salmon and crayfish soup and they still haven't stopped taking about it! Great place, great waiters. You'd miss out if you didn't eat here.

While the place looks like sports bar / pub, it also has a great dining restaurant (turn right from the door). The food is a bargain, great value with reasonable price. Staff is friendly and our kids (8 and 5) really want to come here every time we visit Saariselkä. Highly recommended.

We werent' even sure that we were hungry, but are SO GLAD we dropped in to have a look. Our lunch was superb. I recommend their roast beef. Their gravy and Bernaise sauce was delicious. It was a great place for an impromtu lunch and it is very comfortable, quiet and warm.

We popped into the pub after a long day and were greeted by a fabulous bar man who was friendly and wanted to chat. He was interested in our day. Great service and an ice cold Finnish pint.
