The menu was exciting and executed well. Great food and staff, made my lunch a wonderful experience. Prices are not outrageous, and the quality of the food and presentation are very good. It also has a good wine list. I will definitely eat here a again.

The best meal I had in finland! I spent three days in Finland and definitely this was my favorite place, small but cozy and warm, located right in the Rovaniemi city center, make sure to have a reservation since is usually packed! Reindeer cooked to perfection, my favorite dish :)

I barely visit any restaurant twice during my trip, not to mention same dishes in same restaurant, never happened, but things changed here in Roka. We love the food so much that we went twice during the our three-day stay in Rovamieni and ordered almost the same food. Highly recommend the starter taste of north and their sandwich. They have...

We had our first Finnish dinner here after reaching Rovaniemi and checking into our hotel. Had our first glogi drink here (love that drink)! Food was good and pleasant staff.

We went to Roka for dinner in the New Year's Eve. Since we are Italian we avoided the Mediterranean starters and the risotto and tried the more typical food. Everything was delicious and we recommend other people to go there.

My husband and I stayed for a few days in Rovaniemi and went to this place to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Amazing food and very good treatment. Prices are little high for tourists but it worth it. Highly recommended

The good was delicious, we had a party of 9 and everyone ordered something different - fish, steak, risotto, sandwiches, and everyone was happy with their food. I loved the lemon-ginger risotto. Would definitely recommend this cozy restaurant.

We had julbord with a lot of small dishes in Buffet-style. The food was very good and the place was quite cozy. The price was quite high. 12,50 € for a glass of red wine (2,2 dl). Unfortunately there was not enough of the tasty chistmas pork or ham...

Hi Johan, Thank you for your review... unfortunately I think it's not from our place as we do not have had an Christmas buffet. Our restaurant is so small that there is no room for buffet. Hope you remember the place and can give your good 4-star review in a right place :) ...but when visiting Rovaniemi again , your... More

The n.1 position on Tripadvisor is well deserved. The place is simple but cozy. The food is what makes it definitely worthwhile. Good starters, with some reindeer sausage, salmon and small fish. Then I wanted to try the risotto, and being Italian coming from Milan I am quite demanding when it comes to it: I had the salmon and gingerlemon... More

Thank you so much for your review. I´m so happy to hear that you enjoyed your visit in our small restaurant. Roasted salmon with ginger and lemon risotto is our all-time fav dish from the menu. Our Chef and owner Toni has worked in Italy so that is why our risottos are so tasteful. You Italians sure know how to... More

We visited here as a family of 5 with children aged 3,6 & 9. They were so kind & lovely. The host pro actively offered to split the fish N chips into two portions as the single portion would have been too large. I was really grateful. The fish was cooked beautifully with lovely crispy batter. The kids loved it.... More
