The Savoy is in the centre of Helsinki and offers a selection of really superb food. The interiour is classic Finnish design by Alvar Aalto. The staff is very competent and nice - really serving you well. During summer you can sit outside and have a wonderful view over the Esplanade.

We went to Savoy after reading about it in the wonderful book '1000 places to see before you die'. We went fir the a la carte menu since the tasting menu was way too expensive for us.( € 114).
What we had was very nice, no complaints about the food at all. But what made me a little bit disappointed was the fact that they charge € 15 for a bottle of mineral water. What can be the purpose of that? And if you are going to charge your customers those amounts, maybe add a pricelist for drinks in the menu? That would be good service...

The Savoy restaurant offers good food quality. No dought. Also the location above ton the top of the building is nice. But I definitively don´t share the comments of other people like "best restaurant in town". There are a couple of other experiences in Helsinki you shouldn´t miss, but Savoy is definitively overpriced. When paying 36 EUR for a starter (3 spoons of Risotto with white truffle not specially decorated - I am fully aware of the fact that truffle is expensive), when paying 28 EUR for 1 glass of wine and 15 EUR for a bottle of still water I expect perfect service. 1 waitress was extremely kind (nothing to complain). Another person was not really knowing how to serve guests in a high price restaurant. The way she put the water into the glass over the table, we finally also had to ask for some bread... all in all not how you would expect it. And... there are definitively other restaurants in Helsinki offering the same food quality for much lower price.
