Nice food, lively surrounding and stunning view. Sad that it's only for the summer season. Not the place to go for cheap food, but for music and nice feeling this is the place to be.

What a pity. This restaurant could be so much more, if someone would care to manage it properly. We had studied the menu and wine list on the web, and reserved a table. A bit expensive considering the rustic brewery restaurant milieu, but the menu promised fine dining. I wanted to start with a glass of Paul Goerg Champagne, but... More

Remember place being better value long time ago. Not worth a visit if need for good size portions after long travel day. Quality average but not with the extremely high prices. Better options surely nearby.

The rainbow trout serving tasted good and was well presented. The location and service were both good, on a quiet Monday night. The tap water was €4, no mention of this was made when we ordered the water.

Quality of the food doesn't quite match the prices which are really high. This place is better suited for eating with "somebody else's money". Our group had just about all the items from the menu, and many of them were quite ok, but the quality and taste still didn't justify the prices. The beers from their own microbrewery vere not...

We (two couples and a 13 year old boy) had a late lunch / early dinner at Huvila in July. We had a mixture of fish and meat starters and main courses, and everybody liked what they ate. This is obviously the best place tonhave proper food in Savonlinna. Good (not necessarily fine dining, but really good) food, attentive and... More

Beer, it's a brewery so I expect something good, did not like any of the beers (3). Maybe I don't understand unfiltered, but for 7 Euros for .4 it's expensive. Food - one nice dish, Risotto, others no-no, sorry! Lamb stew served on plate, 4 tuff pieces! Very small plates, high prices!

Local/regional ingredients and artisanal beer is a fine combination. Smallish but well-thought portions. In comparison to other restaurants in the area this is the only one that reaches the gourmand level. Service depends a bit on the night.

We visited this restaurant on August 26 which is 4 days before it closed for the winter. This could be one of the reasons for our experience. It started very well with surprising firsts. In particular the fresh Charre and the wonderful malt bread and beer. The problem was the main courses. They ALL had just one taste - SALT.... More

Visited the restaurant with local friend from Savonlinna. Before choosing this restaurant they told us that they have both very good and bad experiences from it. Unfortunately this one was entirely on the bad side. The service was very slow despite the fact that the restaurant was half empty. It took almost two hours to get into the main course.... More
