Yllaksen Kaivohuone Oy, Akaslompolo: Excellent local food
The interior of the restaurant is specific to Lapland. Also the food was, with no exceptions, delicious and the portions rather generous.
Add to this the friendly atmosphere and the good service, and you'll have enough reasons to return.
Favorite Dish: All where excellent, but especially the "Grilled salmon, stewed morels and lappish potatoes"Related to:

AkasSolmu: Home cooked food
The restaurant serves only the lunch, usually for local people. It's not very easy to find, as its location is not central, but the home made food and the atmosphere were very nice. And it's really cheap.
Favorite Dish: We took the menu of the day, and it was delicious and replenishing.Related to:

Tuikku: Finnish Fondue
This restaurant sits at the top of Levi mountain and on Fodue night provides a tradional meat and cheese fondue. The meat includes pork, beef and reindeer.
A huge selection of vegetables come along with the meal, and there is more than enough food.
If the night is clear (which is wasnt for us) this can be one of the best places to witness the Northern Lights.

You can do some barbeque
One way to enjoy from one side and to save money from the other side is to do your own barbeque. Go to the food store, but chicken, beef, fish or sausages, and make it on the grill.
Favorite Dish: Everything, but if you can catch fish from the river.... that would be wonderful
Wooden Cafes & Restaurants
Many of the coffee shops and restaurants in Lapland are made the traditional way from wood.
Favorite Dish: Obviously my favourites dishes are the ones containing fish. Trout is fresh here and most common. But try also reindeer.
Lappish food: Eating habits
Lapland has had a strong influence on Finnish cooking. Lapp dishes are exotic even to southern Finns and come into their own when you are on a skiing or hiking trek in Lapland, but there is nothing to stop southerners from enjoying the basic Lapp dish, reindeer stew, on a weekday either; besides it's as good a reason as any to make mashed potato, always a hit with Finns.
Salmon, reindeer or willow grouse, followed by golden cloudberries for dessert, are the heart of the Lapp menu on special occasions.
Cafes & Restaurants
You can find Cafes & Restaurants everywhere, small villages and sometimes even just on the side of the road in the middle of nowhere.
