Real Finnish food
in a Logging Site milieu
everyday of the year
Savotta is a Finnish restaurant which offers genuine Finnish food and atmosphere, just off the Senate Square in the heart of Helsinki. The name Savotta means a logging site.Therefore the interior decoration and dishes has got inspiration of the Finnish forests and thousands of lakes, with a dash of Finnish nostalgy from the past decades 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.
In the decor of Savotta, you can see the genuine old artefacts dating back to Finnish homes and logging sites from the old days. Downstairs dining room’s hundred-year-old floor planks, as well as the old chairs and tables, have been found and brought to Savotta from all over Finland. The tableware includes old and new china of the world-renowned Finnish Arabia.
The street level dining rooms face the Helsinki Cathedral by the Senate Square. The 60-seat downstairs dining room takes you back in time to the logging camps of the old days. The downstairs logging camp is ideal for private parties.
