Overall: 4 Comments: if you like muikku, this is it. Now also with take away (I didn't know). My favorite is wrapped muikku. For eating there, central Savonlinna by the water is nice, especially on a sunny day.

Really nicely fried vendace. Fish is fresh and the main item of dishes. Must place when visiting Savonlinna. Foget burgers and enjoy vendace as it should be eaten. Serves beer and wine too. Open late as fast food places should be.

The location is spot on, in the corner of the market square, on a floating jetty. They have recently added glass panels, so you can enjoy your dishes of (mostly) fish. Although I must admit the main area can get a bit stifling in warm weather. Barely anything other than fish on the menu but that is to be expexted... More

The restaurant is on the lake shore and tables are on a floating platform. Staff is friendly and brings the ordinations directly at the tables. Food is cooked in a simple way and it is really good. The price is below the average and it was a great surprise!

Easy to find with excellent prices and large servings. The salad was mostly lettuce and cucumber with two pieces of tomato and no dressing, three boiled potatoes with no butter on offer but loads of fish. Service was ok but not great unfortunately

The place serves really good and inexpensive local fish right on the edge of lake Saimaa. The place is located near the marketplace and it is really easy to find.

I ordered "Muikkus with blue cheese" because I wanted to try this combination, what sounds a bit strange for me. It was a big surprise, total delicious!

Located at the heart of the Savonlinna market place, "the fisherman's stall" offers delicious Baltic herring, salmon etc as part of both traditional and innovative entrees.

Enjoying a quick portion of vendace fish in a pouring rain in a tent by the riverfront was a memorable experience itself and the food was good too, just a bit over-priced.

We visit Savonlinna every summer and never miss our favourite muikku-restaurant. This summer it again was perfect but seems that others have also noticed this great place and service was much slowlier than before. But nevermind because the food was so good. Teenager had fish soup and loved it. We adults had again our regular: Muikku with salad and blue... More
