The menu of this restaurant is short but delicious. Also food quality of wines. The atmosphere of the restaurant is original with timber walls. Outside is a jacuzzi -maybe possible to try from sauna. Expensive.

Took a group of 19 people for dinner, and we all enjoyed it. The food was exceptionally good - I have never had so delicious reindeer fillet - just incredible! The serbice was also extremely friendly, and everything worked just great.
