Savotta servesTasty and hearty Finnish food

Welcome to Finnish Restaurant Savotta in Senate Square

Restaurant Savotta takes its guests directly from Senate Square to a nostalgic view of Finland from past decades. Both the authentic interior and the dishes, served in original style, have been inspired by the Finnish forests and thousands of lakes with a dash of Finnish “sisu” and logging traditions.

Savotta’s kitchen cherishes the Finnish food tradition. We use only Finnish ingredients from the pristine forests and lakes and from carefully selected small suppliers.

Want to discover the food scene in Helsinki but at the same time be a conscious diner?Savotta is part of Helsinki´s Think Sustainably service which helps to choose more sustainable ways of enjoying the city.
