Many of these out-of-town establishments are reputed for their local delicacies cooked from fresh forest ingredients. The Tundra restaurant has won a reputation thanks to its diligent chef, Jarmo Pitkänen, who is always ready to prepare a special lunch or romantic dinner for two and send it by courier direct to your doorstep. It is advisable to book in advance at restaurants, whether for lunch or dinner, as a group of friends or for a celebration. Staff will be happy to discuss the menu and guest numbers.
