PihlasResort, Joroinen

Siimes, ‘Shade’ in Finnish, refers to the place where animals take a rest from the sun, on a hot summer day. In this case the name is omen because they want to offer their guests place to rest and relax while enjoying great food and drink in a warm and alluring atmosphere.

In Restaurant Siimes they serve proudly the best Saimaa region has to offer and for that reason our menus vary seasonally.
