Mustaparran Päämaja

Finnish in Tornio

At the fabulous Hotel Mustaparta, this atmospheric restaurant styled after local hero Iisakki Mustaparta has hefty timber beams, ships' wheels, wooden barrels and a buffet served on a skiff, and inspired modern Finnish cuisine: smoked arctic char with fennel sauce, beetroot-marinated local lamb with blueberry jus, and a reindeer burger with smoked cheese, lingonberry pickle and tar-mustard mayo.

Finish with desserts such as lingonberry and apple pie with lingonberry-rum ice cream. Kids can order special pared-down versions of adults' dishes.
