Right opposite the Kamp, on a roof terrasse we have found this luxurious, expensive but truly excellent restaurant, the cooking even surpasses the view, perfect attentive service, great wines, and a must in Helsinki. Finland is with Norway one of the continent's most expensive countries, admit it or don't go and visit there. This I wanted said because I do... More

It is not only the fact that the restaurant has one if not the best view in town. Neither is it the wonderful Alvar Aalto's original decor. What is very good about this place is the certitude that you will always get very good food, served kindly and professionally. White table cloths, normal white dishes (no fancy tableware that makes... More

Sometimes more is too much....as with this restaurant that wants so badly to be 5-star it overindulges its guests with little touches that do not enhance. Why, for instance, did my mixed salad (lots and lots of little things-greens, flowers, bits of vegetables. It looked a bit messy) need shavings of black truffle? The wait staff look professional, but do... More

Savoy is kind of a landmark restaurant in Helsinki. They don't have Michelin stars but the food has always been prepared with decency and style. It's also the place where a visitor can see original design by Alvar Aalto. So, when combining good food, excellent service, Aalto design and view of most beautiful buildings in Helsinki, this place is a... More

On our Finland-journey in May, we had our last dinner at the Savoy - as a consolation or to recover a little from the unseasonably chilly spring temperatures - the daily grey and rain and, also, to our surprise, a lack of both stylish bars or good eateries. We had the oval table, at the center of the restaurant with,... More

The Savoy is the great classic of Helsinki restaurants with vintage Alvar Aalto decor and a kitchen that has been running since my grandfather´s time. One night last week we dined there on a spur of a moment after the theater and had enchanting food - a pike perch to die for preceded by exquisite veal tartare and salmon appetizers,... More

Wonderful late lunch with a group of friends. Excellent menu with well chosen wines. The champagne terraces in both ends are very nice places to relax after work. Service is very professional, and mainly very kind and caring. Atmosphere is unique. I warmly recommend.

Lovely location and ambience in the restaurant. Professional and attentive service. Presentation of the food is excellent...........but portions are small and our dishes were a little lacking in flavour and seasoning. The a la carte menu is quite limited (choice of only 5 main courses). The food prices are on the high side.........although compared to the wine list seem quite... More
