Food was good. Not anything special but good. Waitress could be more service minded. They said and did evrything by book but they left little bit feeling that they are forced to do so not that they like to do so.

Never fails. Always nice staff, allthough sometimes bit busy. Food is simple, location is good and menu simple but gives enough alternatives.

We had dinner for two on a Friday evening here. We're travelling from abroad and don't speak Suomi, but the restaurant has English menus on hand so that was no issue. Very friendly service, and the food was good.

We had a few beers and some small delicious stuff to eat in this nice restaurant next to the harbour. It was almost full on a Saturday night, mostly locals enjoying their dinners. Worth visiting!

Every time we come to Savonlinna either for opera or for any other reason like this time when we were travelling from Lohimaa after fishing at local streams we visit Majakka. With a very few alternatives it is sort of a place which is difficult to avoid. It has very nice interiors. Service is quick and friendly. If you tend... More

This was the only place open we could find on a rainy night in the summer -- maybe around 8 to 8:30 pm -- and it had a lot of people inside. They offered a salad bar which was really good and we also had snails, little bites (because I wasn't that hungry) and salmon. It was very cosy and... More

After a lazy walk around this lovely city, we ended in to this restaurant for late lunch. Wanted to have Finnish traditional dish; fried vendaces with mashed potatoes. For appetizer I had jumbo shrimps with two different sauces. They beat 1-0 same ones at Red Lobster, I tell ya! Vendaces arrived fast and they were almost as good as mom... More

We had an excellent late dinner after the opera. Delicious appetizers, the best chanterelle risotto ever, wonderful desserts, and all on a surprisingly affordable price.

Nicely located restaurant, the terrace overlooking the harbour - works ok even during a little summer shower. Service is friendly and burgers were tasty. Minus points are coming from the slowness of service and kitchen (& no warning given about the delays in advance!) - even though visiting during the opera festival Savonlinnan Oopperajuhlat, the festival is surely no surprise...
