Restaurants in the Lappeenranta and Imatra area

South Karelia has always been a region of hearty meals, so the traditions of the Saimaa cuisine have stewed and simmered thoroughly and for a long period, with several decades and generations of expertise. You should definitely taste the delicacies of the local cuisine, rich with tradition, but you can also swap the local fish, Karelian stew and meat aspic for the flavours of international cuisine. Delicious gastronomic alternatives are served not only in the towns of Imatra and Lappeenranta, but elsewhere in the region as well. The spa hotels in the Saimaa area also pamper their guests with high quality restaurants.

Food and culture along Via Karelia route

Via Karelia aka The Road of Poem and Border is an official tourism route, and it runs from the Gulf of Finland to Salla following the eastern border for 1,080 km. The route is marked with brown-based signs and RR symbols, and it invites travelers to get acquainted with a wide range of local culture, border history and diverse nature. We picked up few companies, whose services emerge rich in cultural creativity, unique culinary experiences and local delicacies and Karelian hospitality.
