Restaurants, cafés & catering

Hungry or thirsty? Why not stop in a café or restaurant in Ruokolahti for tasty Finnish and international fare. Should you like to try some traditional old style Finnish cooking, contact one of the caterers on the list below.

Rye is an important part of Ruokolahti & Karelian coulinary traditions. Karelian rye & rice pasties (karjalanpiirakka) and slow-cooked lamb stew cooked in wooden pots (särä) have been made for eons and are among our favourites also today. Some of the rarer and older tidbits like fish pot or rye porridge are made to order by some of the traditional caterers only.
