We were in Savonlinna during the down season so there didn't seem to be that many options for dining. We stumbled onto Waahto and saw that many people were inside eating. After we had dinner we knew why! The food was tasty and pretty affordable...for Finland, around $20 euros a plate (I had a burger and my wife had the fish). The portion size was plentiful and the food was cooked perfectly. The service was also great, and the waitress we had even recognized us the next day as we were headed to the train station and wished us well.More

We were staying at the Villa Aria summer hotel, so we got a discount to this restaurant and that's one reasons we chose this place for dinner. The place was pretty crouded at the time, but we managed to get a table without reservation. I...ordered a medium steak and my gf ordered a pea risotto. For drinks i chose a local pale ale and my gf took a cocktail, but got the wrong one at first but was offered the correct one and they only charged us for one cocktail. The steak was average but the risotto was delicious. The service was fast, 13 min from placing our order we reseived our main course. Starter bread was delivered with the drinks almost instantly.More

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.
