    Camp Ripan Restaurang

    It might be located at the local campground, but this popular restaurant is a smart, contemporary affair. Lunch options are limited and often husmanskost (Swedish home cooking) in nature, making dinner the real highlight (book ahead). Using no shortage of local, seasonal produce, dishes might include house-smoked reindeer fillet with a quiche-like pie of potato and robust Västerbotten cheese. The restaurant hosts regular culinary events, like a four-course meal with drinks accompanied by a spellbinding Northern Lights slide show.

    Landströms Kök & Bar

    Take a stylish, monochrome interior, throw in some reindeer steak, haloumi burgers, racks of lamb, and crayfish sandwiches, and add a concise, well-chosen wine menu and beers that span the world, and you've got a winning recipe for a perpetually buzzy bistro.

    Mommas Steakhouse

    Step beyond the mildly anonymous hotel exterior here and enter the pleasant, if somewhat dated, decor of this US-style steakhouse with Sweden's wild west choice of meats – like the barbecue platter with reindeer and elk, or fillet of moose. It also serves excellent (and monster-size) burgers, while the signature cloudberry parfait equals an appropriate sweet note finale.

    Thai Kitchen

    This is a bit of a go-to for budget travellers, but don’t let the plastic tablecloths fool you – this informal joint cooks up excellent Thai dishes, though if you want authentic spice levels, ask them to kick it up a notch.
