Great local fish

The place serves really good and inexpensive local fish right on the edge of lake Saimaa. The place is located near the marketplace and it is really easy to find.

I ordered "Muikkus with blue cheese" because I wanted to try this combination, what sounds a bit strange for me. It was a big surprise, total delicious!

Located at the heart of the Savonlinna market place, "the fisherman's stall" offers delicious Baltic herring, salmon etc as part of both traditional and innovative entrees.

Enjoying a quick portion of vendace fish in a pouring rain in a tent by the riverfront was a memorable experience itself and the food was good too, just a bit over-priced.

We visit Savonlinna every summer and never miss our favourite muikku-restaurant. This summer it again was perfect but seems that others have also noticed this great place and service was much slowlier than before. But nevermind because the food was so good. Teenager had fish soup and loved it. We adults had again our regular: Muikku with salad and blue... More

Overall: 4-5 Comments: this seasonal muikku (Finnish lake sardinit-ish) joint by the market in Savonlinna serves the best muikku, or so it seems. Muikku is probably caught nearby. My favorite is the tortilla muikku. 2 off. Reservation: No - crowded when the weather is at its best. Location: 4-5, central Savonlinna Menu: 4 Knowledge: 4 Originality: 5 Presentation: 5 Taste:...

Ate there with my son,who isn't "a fisfhfan", meaning normally he doesn't eat fish at all. I got a real big muikku portion and he wantef to taste. Even him liked those,and I loved. They were much more better than in Kuopio marketplace. So crispy and full of butter. You can't get better. The place is wonderful,beside the bridge and... More

For a quick bite to eat, at reasonable (FOR FINLAND) prices this is fine. 90% of the menu is made up of muikku / vendice / vendace dishes (the little butter-fried white fish which you'll smell as soon as you get off the bus, train or taxi when you arrive here). We have to say that they weren't the best... More
