Restaurants in the Saimaa region

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.
