This traditional Saami restaurant is built as a turf hut partly dug into the ground and has a very special cozy and warm feeling. It’s located just 5 minutes walking distance from the Levi center.
This is the place to have a great filling and tasty dinner in a unique Lappish atmosphere. In the middle of the restaurant you will find an open fireplace, walls and ceiling are made of tree trunks. The co-owner of the restaurant, Niles Jouni Aikio is a famous joik singer and ancestor of powerful Sami shaman. You will see some of his family photographs and artifacts on the walls. His wife Anne is a chef and hostess here and she wears a traditional Saami dress. Food is mainly served on the buffet around the fireplace in clay pots. Main courses: fire-glowed salmon is prepared on the wooden plank by the open fire and reindeer steak is smoked above the fire in a traditional way. Besides the mains there are other mouth-watering reindeer meals: ribs, tongue, heart, sauteed reindeer and also caramelized root vegetables, mashed potatoes and other delicacies. For the start you will get a fish soup and for desert - traditional melted squeaky cheese with cloudberries and whipped cream.
Once you are inside restaurant you can feel the warmth of the open fire, experience Sámi hospitality and enjoy joiks (a Sámi form of singing) by Niles Jouni. Outside the restaurant there is a reindeer corral, belonging to the owner's family.
