After very long wait we finally got our food even though we had made dinner reservation and the restaurant wasn't that busy. The waiter said nothing about the delay. Main course was cold and the fish didn't have enough salt. Nobody asked if the food...was ok, so we didn't get a chance to ask for salt. Poor service, poor quality of food and definitely not good value for your money. Will not eat in this restaurant again. The view to the lake was nice.More

Booking by phone didn't work. First courses excellent. Main courses varied. Too salty fish, good beefs. Seasonal veggies from the grill excellent. Deserts good, nice setup with carrot cake. Excellent fluent service.

Poor steak and expencive. Hot redwine. Not worth for money. Service at warm terrace was friendly anyway. Hope burgers and beers better.

Hot summer day, but the service was slow and unfriendly. It took ages to order drinks and despite 80% empty tables on the non-smoking dining half, we were escorted to smoking area with full ashtrays and dirty tables

Great food in central place of Savonlinna, with a beautiful view over the marina. We got superb service from a nice, tattooed waiter. He even spoke some Swedish :) we'd love to come back again. Tammisaari says thank you!

Very positively surprised! We chose this restaurant at random, and it turned out to be a very good experience. The service was superb and I got some of the best prepared fish I have eaten in a long while. The dessert was also excellent. Very...satisfied.More

The 3-course menu was unsurprising, but top-quality and tasty. The service and presentation was fine for the outside seating where the lakeside view gave a nice plus.

Had the burger myself, which was okay but nothing too special. However, the fish of the day that my friends ordered was very good!

We heard from a friend who is moving to Savonlinna that it is one of the best restaurants in the area, so we went there. It was sunny and a lot of people. We didn't have a reservation but we got a table (could be...an idea to book a table just in case!). We went on 15th of May 2021 on a Friday at 7 pm and the place was packed with people after 8 pm. We had the menu (escargot, tenderloin and chocolate cake). It was good! The service was nice :) They have a brewery so I also tasted their own coctail (beer used as an ingredient). Try it! Would recommend!More
