Restaurant Aitta

Authentic Lappish Cuisine near Rovaniemi

Honouring the legacy of the old tavern

where delicious aromas, echoing laughter and pure joy filled the air.

Something old, something new. Can you hear the 100-year-old timber log walls of our restaurant Aitta whispering the stories from life in the old days? Take a seat and allow your senses to surrender in front of the delicious aromas of the Lappish food served.

Did you know that in the olden days Apukka used to be a breadbasket with rich fishing waters and forests full of berries and mushrooms? The old tavern was open to travellers from all around the country and world, a place where the food would never run out and the glasses would never fall empty.

Today, we want to cherish the tradition of old Apukka. Restaurant Aitta serves Nordic cuisine with a modern twist and uses locally produced ingredients. The true heart of the restaurant is a huge stone fireplace with an oven, a perfect place to braise a delicious stew. High windows in the dining area give an amazing view to the lake. In Aitta, we are able to cater groups of up to 200 persons.

Welcome dear friend, the table is made for You.
