“Great food within a beautiful landscape”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

In this old, white painted wooden house you can get delicious food. The terrace is lovely to sit on a warm summer night. They focus on local ingredients and food - not very cheap, but great.

“Fresh and delicious food in a beautiful setting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

We ate at Huvila two nights because the food was so delicious, and the setting so peaceful and lovely. The fresh fish dishes, including the pikeperch and the artic char, are delicious. The meat dishes, including the wild boar and the veal cheek, are also excellent. Service is pleasant and efficient. The home made cider is very tasty. They also have a selection of nicely prepared children's meals. This was one of the best restaurants we ate at in Finland.

“Fantastic food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2012

On the side of the lake, this restaurant with its own brewery is well worth a visit. I didn't sample the local brew but the wine was very good and the food fantastic. There were original recipes and a good range of meats and fish as well as vegetarian options. There was live music outside, where one could eat on the terrace - but spray on lots of mosquitto repellant! It was slightly above average in price - 75 euros per person for a three course meal with wine and a digestif - but so very well worth it!

“Possibly the best dining option in Savonlinna”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

Creative, tasty food in a nice location. Warm summer nights are hardly suited to heavy dishes like lasagna -- HOWEVER, the vegetable lasagna here is a delicate, texture-rich affair that tastes as good as it looks. With a scant 2-layers of pasta it´s mess of perfectly cooked vegetables, decorated with a smattering of green salad. There were 5 in our party and everyone ordered something different and all were very enthusiastic about the quality of the food. Fine wine list and excellent selection of cool coffees, e.g. Pear-flavored cappuccino, among several others. One drawback the night we went was the slowness of the kitchen in preparing our entrees. We experienced the waitstaff as friendly and professional with a good command of English (thankfully!). Open late to accommodate Savonlinna post-performance crowd.

“Awesome arctic char”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

We had a table on the terrace and we ordered day´s fish, which was arctic char. The dish was great, very fresh and tasty. Also service was friendly and fast. Beautiful view and location near the lake. Simple setting but good quality.The restaurant has also a brewery, both ales we tasted were ok, but nothing very special.
