This renowned restaurant serves breakfast, lunch and dinner on a daily basis. The restaurant's name – Trapesa – comes from the Greek word for a table or monastery refectory.

The main meals of the day – breakfast, lunch and dinner – are available from the buffet table with a separate salad bar, which always includes the monastery's own sauerkraut! Most of the rolls and pastries are the produce of the monastery's own baker, Hierodeacon Aleksanteri. The restaurant serves the monestary's own wine, beer and spirits.

Lunch and dinner are served continually from 11 am to 3 pm (up to 7 pm in the summer) and coffee, tea and snacks are available all day. In July the Trapesa Restaurant takes on a more Slavic atmosphere when the Valamo Tea Table is laid out every evening from 6 to 9 pm.

Private rooms can be hired for family occasions, for example. The picturesque Tsars' Room seats 20 guests, the spacious Yellow Room 50 guests and the Upper Room 40 guests.
