The food - The atmosphere

Well, The title actually says it all. The food and the service is impeccable, but the atmosphere and the Alvar Aalto designed interor would have made it a "must go there" anyway. Just do it!

A last minute stopover in Helsinki meant we were clueless about where to eat but I chose Ravintola Savoy because of its history as a dining establishment and its Finnish cuisine. We really really enjoyed this experience. The restaurant is located in an ugly old office building but being on the 8th floor, the outlook onto the streets of Helsinki... More

The place is perfect for high end meetings. Dark suited guests shook hands in professional manner, and the atmosphere of the place was sharp, a bit cold. Expect to pay around 60 euro for a 3 course menu. The food is classic French cuisine combined with Finnish traditional recipes and local produce. Good quality, renown in town, but nothing incredible.... More

This place is designed by Alvar Aalto, most famous finnish architect. Whether you like his style or not, this interior is nice. And so is the food. And the view over Helsinki from the eighth? floor. I think it's smart casual.

We had the opportunity to visit Savoy for three course lunch. Savoy is one of the classic places to eat in Helsinki so we had some expectations for the service & food. As it is x-mas time they were offering a seasonal lunch service. This was excellent. There were enough options for all of us and we all enjoyed the... More

We had a business dinner, and I must admit Savoy is definitely a top class restaurant. Food, service and interior all fit well together. One interesting info was that the interior is designed by Alvar Aalto, and has remained the same for 70 years. We all selected offered four course menu. Starter was meat tartar. Likely the best we all... More

We had lunch on the terrace. Service is second to none and most of the courses are cooked and presented to the highest standard. The interior is shabby and needs touching up everywhere. Prices are too expensive for what it is. Glass of champaign at 22 eur. If you do not go for set menu (65eur or 68 eur for... More

We went to have a business dinner at the Savoy. We did follow the recommendations of the chef including the wine's selected by the somelier! Everything had been an excellent choice. You definitely pay a premiumfor the location (8th floor). If you have a chance try to get a table in the wintergarden. Beautiful view, as well great for anniversaries!

Beautiful dishes representing the ingredients in a pure and classic way. But, with a great cost - super expensive non-star restaurant. But you pay for the sublime service and location above the roofs of Helsinki in Alvar Aalto design dining hall with a long and colourful history. The first courses were classic French. I loved the carpaccio with truffles. We... More
