Eat, Drink & Enjoy

Taste our local food, enjoy the local entertainment

When hunger takes you by surprise, the dining facilities of Taivalkoski meet everyone's wish. Traditional regional delicacies and other delightful treats are available 7 days a week from local entrepreneurs.

People come from far and wide to taste our local bread, which is baked with a hole in the middle. Some of the farm holiday places in the region also provide traditional meals for groups upon request. Or are you in the mood for pizza, plain fare or something adventuresome? Those with large appetites may want to sink their teeth in a juicy steak specially prepared by the Hotel Herkko. It doesn’t get any better than that! 

Go out for a beer, dance, listen to music or enjoy a theatre evening. We have some suggestions where to go.

Here you find the list of all gastronomy services available in the municipality Taivalkoski. Please check the opening hours in advance.
