Tasty and hearty Finnish food

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.

Savotta is part of the Think Sustainably service which helps to reduce the carbon footprint.
