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.

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
