Had come here with a group. The service was fast and efficient. Had smoked salmon with rissi and it was excellent. The restaurant interior ambience was also good and calm.

My husband and I visited Ravintola Majakka for our wedding anniversary. We arrived just 1 hour before closing (the closing time had changed that day), but the waitress was very friendly, seated us, and welcomed us anyway. The food was delicious — we tried salmon...and the local “vendace” with mashed potatoes. The interior was super cozy. We’d definitely come back another time.More

Exellent food. As close to perfection as could be. Dishes made from scratch, nothing fake. The texture and taste have such finesse. I could eat here everyday and find something new and deep. The service is frindly and professionel. Location is good in centrum at...the harbour and market. Absolutelly the Best kitchen in town.More

Really great dinner on the terrace. We ate Escargots and crayfish soup for starters, both were delicious! One of the best Escargots we've had in a restaurant in Finland to be honest. For mains us adults took the fried liver and our teen ager ate...chicken. Our liver was perfectly fried, the mash was lovely and buttery. The chicken dish was really good too. As dessert we ate cake, chocolate and lemon cheese cake. Also delicious. The price was moderate, even with a bottle of wine and Coke. Service was really friendly and attentative. Can warmly recommend!More

Waited 15 min for a table. They didn't have the wine we had pre-ordered. They didn't have the main we had ordered and on that light the meal advanced. Bad experience

We were so satisfied by Majakka that during our stay in Savonlinna we had all our dinners at this restaurant. Here you'll find really good food, and prices are more than adequate to the quality. I liked everything we had: from the pulled pork burger...to the filet steak, but let the highlights, in my opinion, were the salmon and of course the regional specialty: Muikku. Last, but not least, the attention to the customer was great, despite some difficulties (we had a dinner on the terasse during a quite heavy downpour which would have probably caused more issues in less organized places). All in all thumbs up, we'll definitely come back next time we'll be in town.More

We visit Majakka Friday evening and there was plenty of free tables so we get table right away. We share Huikolauta as a starter wich is tapas style of plate with meat, fish and some sides. That was ok starter for two. As a main...I take small whitefish (vendace) with mushed potatoes, that was good, straight from lake Saimaa that is 50m away from Majakka, so as local food as it can be.More

Have known this local city restaurant since 80's when it was very famous of fresh fish (near food even it was not named so at those times). Today seems to have joint ventured into some chain? Location has still remained the same, beside of beautiful...harbor at Lake Saimaa area, in the heart of small city of Savonlinna. We visited outside of the hottest season (which is in July during opera festival), so not any rush existing. Service was good but not so quick. Food was still good to enjoy while looking out from terasse are.More
