Restaurant Aitta

Something old, something new. The 100 years old timber log walls of our brand new restaurant Aitta tell dozens of stories of Apukka area.

Did you know that in the old days Apukka used to be a breadbasket for locals with rich fishing waters, forests full of berries and mushrooms? The old tavern was open to all the travelers and as they said: welcome dear friend, the table is made for You.

Today, we want to cherish the tradition of old Apukka and that’s how the concept of Aitta was born.

Restaurant Aitta serves Nordic cuisine with modern twist and uses locally produced ingredients. Breakfast is continental, lunch and dinner buffet style. The true heart of the restaurant is a huge stone fireplace with oven, where we actually bake buns and braise delicious stew. High windows in the dining area gives amazing view to the lake. In Aitta, we are able to cater up groups up to 160-200 persons.
