Restaurant Aitta is located in Apukka Resort Rovaniemi, 10 km from Santa Claus Village. The restaurant’s 100 years old timber log walls have dozens of stories to tell from the times of Apukka’s old tavern in the late 19th century.
We want to cherish the tradition of old Apukka, and that’s how the concept of Restaurant Aitta was born. Restaurant Aitta serves Nordic cuisine with a modern twist and uses locally produced ingredients.
Aitta serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner daily from the beginning of September to early April. You can choose a rich buffet or a la carte for dinner.
The true heart of the restaurant is a massive stone fireplace with an oven. High windows in the dining area give a fantastic view of Lake Olkka.
