Surprisingly good food and service bearing in mind the challenge of serving hot food in an oversize ice igloo. Your lager will never get warm here no matter how slowly you drink it. If in the area, this is a must do.

This wasn't my favorite restaurant at the Snow Hotel, some of the combinations for the food were unusual and my partner felt the same that perhaps they didn't even work as a meal (?). Due to being sub zero, the food is all brought out very quickly, meaning you'd finished within 20 minutes. Not our usual dining aim to sit... More

Quickest dinner I ever ate...was fully wrapped up even had gloves on to eat. Thought I was coldest I had ever been but that was until we slept in the snow hotel later. Food ok but expensive. Managed to keep it relatively hot which was impressive. I didn't like elk nor the puree it was on, but it was just... More

Food quality is that of skool dinners but to do it once I suppose is ok. I really think €54 per head was ridiculous with another €34 for a bottle of wine. Don't expect Haut cuisine don't expect large portions. The food is prepared in the reception/breakfast building and carried over. Choice is v small and must be made at... More

Eating at -5 was always going to be an adventure! It lived up to expectations and more. Staff were excellent in every respect, food was delicious, well presented ( dessert on an ice snowflake!) - menu limited but more than adequate for all tastes including vegetarian - a total experience that in my opinion was worth every Euro !!!! Try... More

Visited the ice restaurant whilst staying in the igloos. Well worth the visit food tasty and well presented. Atmosphere great and interesting with a lot of effort on details including snowflake ice plate for dessert. Very expensive bring your money and bookings must be made in advance. Would be tough to get there if you weren't staying there would need... More

As other parts of the Arctic Snow Hotel Ice Restaurant was also a very interesting experience. The menü,the service and the atmosphere was brilliant. Like in all the other departments of the hotel the staff was very friendly and helpful. If you are visiting the hotel you should definiteley try the Ice Restaurant.

As a one off experience it was interesting and one I won't be rushing back for. We were sat at the wrong table so consequently our selected dishes were not delivered efficiently. The salmon dish I had selected was amazing but had to be consumed rapidly before it went cold. Unfortunately the reindeer skills were not enough to keep me... More
