We, 4 adults, made a reservation and wanted to eat good food in Savonlinna. Unfortunately, our dog wasn't allowed inside. So, we had to stay outside. Which was okay, but suddenly there was a heavy storm and even under a roof we became wet. Anyway,...we could't find shelter in the inside, because of the dog. This is disappointing, when you consider that we would have eaten for at least 200€. Furthermore, the male servant outside was rude and we had the feeling that we weren't welcome.More

We're very sorry that your experience was not succesfull. We warmly welcome dogs to our terrace, but let our guests know in advance that unfortunately we cannot allow dogs in our inside dining rooms. This we told you when you made reservation. Sadly at that...More

Excellent spot to enjoy dinner next to castle. Nice terrace area with view to castle and lake. Had three course dinner with beef tartar for starter, pike-perch for main course tar brulee for desert. Tartar was excellent, fish fresh and well grilled and desert delicious....Portion sizes were excellent and left you with good feeling. Service very good and wine recommendations top notch. Highly recommend.More

We chose this Restaurant next to the Castle because our original choice was full (probably because of the Opera Festival). Our group of seven was easily accomodated and treated wonderfully by the Service Team. The Burger, Fish and House Wine were excellent and we would...recommend this place to anyone going to the Opera afterwards!More

Ihastuttava paikka Olavinlinnan vieressä, miellyttävä terassi. Erittäin ystävällinen palvelu. Valitettavasti ruoka oli hintaan nähden pettymys: maa-artisokkakeitto oli vetistä, kanasalaatista sai etsimällä etsiä vähiä kanapaloja, sisäfile oli liian kypsä, savustettu punajuuri olikin kylmää etikkapunajuurta ja tiramisu oli kuivaa. Soveltuu seurusteluun hyvän viinilasillisen äärellä, ruokailemaan menisin toisaalle..../ Lovely place near Olavinlinna, pleasant terace. Excellent service. Unfortunately food was a huge disappointment compared to the price: artichoke soup was watery, almoust couldn't find the chicken pieces in chicken salad, filee was over done, smoked beetroot was cold and vinegary and tiramisu was dry. Good place for chat over nice glass of wine.More

Had a dinner with friend on a Friday before attending the Opera Festival. For that purpose the location of the restaurant is just perfect. The menu is not too big, but everything we ate was very nice, so quality definitely compensates for that. Who needs...a big list if everything is good? The atmosphere was also complimentary to the food. Service was very good and the staff was there whenever you needed. No extra waiting for things to happen.More

Absolutely briliant restaurant compared to others in area. Service was excellent and from every action they made, it was definitely professional work. Since first steps at the bumby rocky outdoor floor we were taked good care of and the dishes were introduced to us with...proud, which they really deserved.More

I have ten years experience eating at Linnakrouvi during Savonlinna Opera festivals. We meet with few couples here and take a glass of wine before opera. After opera we have preorded menu. Yesterday evening we got chefs special berfore starters. We had orderered La Boheme...-menu. Menu was the highest quality. Atmosphere is sophisticated in this gorgeous wooden house. Service has been absolutely excellent every time! I can highly recommend this place!More

Open for short period in summer, but I keep on coming every summer. Fish is the thing in this restaurant. Small portions, but delicious and culinaristic.
