Our food came within minutes so no complaints; we were there on a Thursday afternoon. Delicious vendace fried in butter, aah! Great location, and we were also lucky to enjoy sunshine on their terrace.

We ordered fish. We were disappointed with the food. The fish was probably not quite fresh. Poor price-quality ratio. The restaurant is in a good location. We had to wait for food for about an hour.

Very good food (all fish options!), food was there very quick. The price for the food is fair. As everywhere in Finland the drinks are expensive but you know that. You have to order and pay when you come in due to COVID-19 restrictions. I...liked this but I understand it's not for everyoneMore

Great potential for good restaurant but current arrangements are focused on getting max possible profit without any kind of effort to give something back. When you come inside you need to order and pay directly to cash desk. No complimentary water. All beverages you need...to fill by yourself from the same kind of machine as in Burger King and into the same kind of disposable Coca Cola mug. Can you imagine?! Only wine is served in the glass. We waited 50 min for a food. Weather was great, so it was not too bad. But if you are hungry, you should continue walking for 10 m and get a food from numerous food booths because in this ”restaurant” you are not going to get better food or feeling even prices are of restaurant levelMore

Thank you visiting us. Our restaurant is based on fast food concept, dishes costs from 8.90 to 20,50 euros. Mostly ala carte restaurant dishes cost 15-35 euros in Finland. That is also the reason we are very popular. We have our own fishing, food is...More

Tasty ”muikku” fish plate and a drink at the floating terrace. In the very centre of lovely Savonlinna town!

A perfect simple dinner - the local fish -fried Muikku (vendace) with dill sauce, a mixed salad and mashed potato. We went in late August so the peak season had already ended. Service was fast and the food was absolutely delicious. The location by the...waters edge is lovely for sunset, people watching and a cold beer.More

We came, looked at the menu and the picutres and were happy to order fish an chips. What was brought to our table looked like fish and chips but the fish was fake. It was some undefined substitute that may have contained fish but it...wasn't fish. It was more like a type of dough that was then fried. Completely unacceptable and I guess even against European food legislation. The chips at leat were real chips but they weren't great either.More

Kalastajan koju is situated perfectly next to the market square and the lake Saimaa in the heart of Savonlinna. The restaurant serves mainly freshwater whitefish (muikku). The fish is cooked really well, which is why it is a shame there isn’t more of it in...the portions. Look out for the hungry seagulls.More

We had lunch here on their summer terrace. Fried vandace(muikku) was very good. Also their red fish soup was tasty. Good location by the market square.

Vendace is fabulous here! you may choose between different offers: I loved the one with blue cheese. But is amazing the way they fry fishes, so dry, not grease... just try it!
