Loved the salmon soup which tasted rich and creamy. Waffles with chicken tasted pretty good too. Didn't really like the combination of waffles with salmon though. And the service felt a little slow at times.

We arrived at cafe 21 to spend two hours before taking the train back to Helsinki. They were two hours in relax, very good tapas, hot chocolate with cream. Not too expensive and very comfortable sofa.

We were referred to Cafe 21 by another restaurant and it didn't disappoint. The menu is innovative, fresh and delicious. We all had one of the waffle meals with a different topping. We were hesitant in ordering but once they came out we were all pleasantly surprised. The servings were generous, well presented and so tasty. Elen running the bar... More

Visited for lunch based on TripAdvisor reviews. On arrival, just find a seat (where you can), grab the menu and order at the Counter. Great menu and food was excellent. Good value for money.

This restaurant is located in the city Centre within walking distance from most hotels. It is popular so should make reservation. But we managed to get a table when we just dropped in. They served savory waffles which we found it to be pretty unique. Tried the shrimp waffle. They are tasty too, deserved at least a thumbs up. The... More

We hired a taxi from Santa Claus Holiday Village to go into Rovaniemi to eat at this bar. The food was excellent and the service very good. The DJ played brilliant tunes. Highly recommend this bar.

Me and my friends reserved a table there to celebrate a birthday. When we went there it seemed to be like no one wanted to take care of us. We were waiting for about 10 min only to get at least some information concerning our table. Then this "reserved table" wasn't even ready for us as there was a dirty... More

Good food and cocktails. Didn't really like the cupcake I took though, it was dry and hard as a rock. But that's the only minus. Loved the orange cocktail. The staff is great!

We had brunch here before we left for the Rovaniemi airport. The waffles are really spectacular. It was soft, fluffy and the ingredients were generous. We had the chunky chicken and it went very well with the waffles. We had the salmon fish soup as well which was delicious. However the soup takes about 30minutes so please Ensure you have... More

Our family of six visited the restaurant whilst on holiday in Lapland to see Santa Claus. The restaurant was recommended to us by our holiday rep so we jumped a cab and headed over. It's attached to the Coffee House which was very busy when we arrived at 6pm but the restaurant not so busy. From the start it seemed... More

Hi David, first of all I have to say that I believe you have went to an Italian restaurant called Rosso since we are located at Rovakatu, not next to Coffee House and also we do not served pizza at all. I hope you could revise your review since you have probably not been to our place at all. Thank... More
