The people from KOLI Activ Oy and their restaurant Alamaja are the kindest people we have met in a long time. Service- minded, kind, genuine and real. A great place with greater people. The restaurant serves amazing food. Mika & Kata and their staff make...sure to organise anything active possible in the national park of KOLI . Kids are more than welcome at this place. Can recommend this gem to anyone who visits Karelia, Finland.More

We ate a delicious meal! Excellent white wine sauce on fresh fish. Great veggie option of quinoa patties. Friendly, delightful service. The waitress even called us a cab. Great outside seating with a lovely view. Can't wait to return to this place!

Cosy cottage at the lake. Small selection of food but really freshand good. Try the burger made of moose meat - something else. Or local small traditional fish dish, muikku. Tasty cakes and pastries, friendly service. Worth of trying!

Paikka on ihan Satamassa ja kesäisin löytyy myös ulkoa paikkoja. Sisätilat ovat kotoisat ja lasitettu parveke tuo mukavasti lisätilaa- myös hieman huonommalla säällä. Paikasta löytyy Lounasbuffetti ja sen lisäksi todella hyviä burgereita. Suosittelen :) The place is just next to the harbour and in the...summertime there is the possibility to sit outside. The indoor is very cosy and homy. The terrase with big windows give an wonderful extraspace. You can eat from the lunchbuffet or order some really delicious burgers there. I recommend this place with pleasure :)More

Cosy place with tasty unpretangeous food. The place is situated next to Peilinen see with sandpeach and boattours over the se and to other cities For me a more cosy place than the flashy hotel higher up at Koli. Nice staff.

What a treat! This cafe serves fresh, local food in decent prices. The scenery around it is magnificent and adds to the overall experience, especially after a few hour hike. We will be back!

If you want to have a quick lunch in Koli and enjoy the local atmosphere, what could be a better place for that than restaurant Alamaja located in Koli harbour besides lake Pielinen. The place is full of history, and you should take a look...at the photos on the walls while you're there. Alamaja is a simple place, and you can go there wearing sweaty hiking clothes or whatever depending on what you've been doing. There is always local vendace served at lunch, and they taste so good just fried. The lunch is fairly expensive, but the place lives from tourism, so that's ok. You can also take the hydrofoil cruise on the lake from the harbour next to Alamaja.More

Alamaja restaurant is a small and cozy place at Koli's harbour. You can eat delicious lunch here or order your own favourite from a'la carte list. There's also special (moose, halloum etc.) restaurant burgers on the menu and a nice selection of kids dishes too....You can also have some of the Koli's finest winter- and summer activity services (snowmobiles, waterskiing, reindeer sledge etc.) from this place. Highly recommended for families and couples!More

This restaurant is nice with great view to lake Pielinen. It also offers many outdoor activities. The food quality is good, although little pricy.

Great menu of activities (snowmobile is a blast!), top notch equipment, fantastic landscape, warm friendly welcome: a great address. Don't miss the cooked ham sandwich on the way back.
