Our granddaughter loves this cafe by the lakeside at the end of the Savonlinna open air market in the centre of town. The covered area has been expanded in 2016. Classic "fast food" of fried fresh lake fish, potatoes and salad. Really fresh food and must be tried for a true experience of East Finland lake region cuisine. Best with... More

We noticed this place while walking around the market and decided to have lunch here, particularly because we wanted to enjoy vendace and fish soup. Well, fish soup was over - we were told. So what? Why not to cook extra new and fresh as it was still full of clients? Strange approach and real big "minus" of this place.... More

We road our bikes here and with the glass walls you can pretty much look out for them the whole time though I doubt there is a big issue with theft in Savonlinna. The restaurant is right on the market square and open for lunch. The food is really good and the beer and cider go so well with the... More

Loved the fresh fish (muikku) with new potatoes and homemade dressing. There was a lot of fish to eat in a portion. Sallad part was quite basic, even lame. Floating terrace was great.

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.
