Restaurant Niinipuu in Puumala serves local Finnish food. The restaurant is built in a stone barn in the grounds of Okkola. You are most welcome to visit us, taste  our delicacies, grab a cold drink or treat yourself with rye-crusted blueberry pie! Depending on the season and the catch, the restaurant may serve whitebait caught the previous night in Lake Saimaa or chanterelles picked from Niinisaari. Our speciality is plank-roasted rainbow trout from Puumala.

The weekend before midsummer, jazz fans travel from far and wide to meet in the attic at Niinipuu. The legendary Niini Jazz event has had musicians jamming in the barn since 1994.

Please see information for group bookings here.
