PRIVATE RESTAURANT MAKUHELMI
Food is a very important thing to us giants, almost as important as the forest. We like our food simple but tasty. We enjoy our meals full-heartedly, which is why we like to create the right atmosphere as well. At the dining table you may also notice that our character shows in the size of the food, too. You don’t often see cardamom buns as big as ours.
We want to create special, unique, high-quality and above all memorable parties and events. We want to serve our guests tasty experiences, which is why we always prepare all our delicious gourmet dishes in our own kitchen from start to finish. Our services are always planned and carried out together with our customer. We do what we promise, and we are always on schedule.
We collect our own mushrooms, berries and herbs to use as ingredients in our foods. When it comes to other ingredients such as fish, wild game, and root vegetables, we always favour using local Finnish ingredients. We act in an environmentally friendly manner while respecting sustainable development principles.
MAKUHELMI’S ALL DAY MENU
As we speak, the giants are cooking and developing the tastiest evening snacks and soups in the whole Arctic Giant… You won’t believe what more you can find in the new All-Day Menu when the giants start planning it with all their mighty hearts! A little bird told us that this summer the giants will be searching for and tasting all sorts of seasonal wild herbs, so that when autumn arrives the giants can serve their guests the best fare on this Earth (of course not forgetting their delicious delicacies!).

For those seeking for an adventure, we offer the possibility of dining in our brand-new goahti, a Lapland-style tent, which is a historical type of hut used by the Sami people.
