I have been to Savoy a couple of times years ago on business lunches. This time I went with my wife for a dinner. The overall experience was not at the level what should be expected with this price level. The food was OK but not exceptionally good. The food was missing the "something" that you would expect with this... More

With some occasional (very good) visits to Savoy earlier with very good feelings I must say that my and my wife's dinner was excellent, above expectation. The service was excellent, meals suberb, the sommelier was one of the best ever met.

The service was very good and attentive. The have a very good wine list from a Finish point of view. (6... More

We dined here 30.02.15. and we were positively surprised. This former Michelin Star restaurant is still a great choice for a pleasant meal. It`s a bit more expensive than the average in Helsinki, but you will get a very nice view over the city and a great meal. Here you can choose from an ala carte or a 4 meal... More

Designed by Alvar Aalto, legendary Finish architect and designer of furniture, glassware and home utensils. Located in central Helsinki's Esplanade a short walk from the waterfront, the interior has a modern classic atmosphere with scenic views the city. Savoy is an epitome Finnish and Scandinavian epicurean culture, known for its traditional modern-day gastronomy with an emphasis on healthy eating. I... More

Savoy is one of the best restaurants in Helsinki. Had a three course lunch menu. Excellent taste, nice presentation and really professional service. Nice!

I had a dinner in this well known restaurant. The food is unforgettably delicious and the service is good. The view over Helsinki is great. Savoy is a good place for a "special" evening, but the prices make it impossible for normal people to eat there regularly. I paid 52€ for one portion and wardrobe, without drinks. The menu costs...

Only go if you are a great fan of Alvar Aalto design or have money to throw away. The view is great from the terrace and most of the staff are professional. The interior is very basic and not attractive at all, unless you like the functionalistic approach. We had the seasonal menu for 99€/pp, taste of things was strange... More

Located in an Alvar Aalto designed restaurant, the quintessence of Scandinavian aesthetics. Excellent food, sophisticated service and select international wine list — the Aalto Rioja, Spain is particularly noteworthy, if pricy.
