Restaurant Lappeenranta


Wanha Makasiini Bistro is an easy-going and atmospheric restaurant. Makasiinis’ flavorful dishes and delicious desserts are made with the most fresh ingredients. A good meal is completed with our excellent selection of wines and other beverages.


Wanha Makasiini Bistro is located in a historic building in the harbour of Lappeenranta. In the summer you can enjoy your meal on our beautiful terrace with a view upon lake Saimaa.


Welcome to Wanha Makasiini Bistro!



Our Chef Mikko Kinnari plans the dishes of Wanha Makasiini Bistro for the love towards food. All our dishes are made professionally from carefully selected fresh ingredients. The food is based on the classical cuisine as the familiar ingredients are served in a new way – not too fancy, though. We want to serve our customers with new experiences and flavours and that is why our menu is revised five times a year.


We welcome you to come and enjoy the best food in town!



Our selection of beverages contains aperitifs, beers, wines and cocktails. We have selected a wine to be paired with every dish from our versatile repertory of wines. In our wine cellar we have some rare delicacies for more demanding palate. Our selection of beers goes from regular lagers to some special micro brewery beers. We also serve you with the freshest cocktails of the season for instance as a refreshing alternative to desserts.



The building is originally built as the workshop for the 11th Sniper Regiment of The Finnish Defense Forces in 1915. Gunsmith’s workshop serves Wanha Makasiini Bistros’ customers today throughout the year. We have nearly 100 places in the restaurant ( and in the summer 80 places more on terrace). Restaurants’ two main halls and cosy cabinets are suitable for company events, meetings, celebrations and memorable evenings with friends and family
