This interesting Finnish restaurant is in an underground cellar in a building off Senate Square. The name Savotta means Lumber Camp and the decor is inspired by Finnish forests.
The decor is a selection of vintage furnishings from all over Finland. I particularly liked the old Arabia china the food was served on.
As it was a very cold night we began with warm spiced wine.
We enjoyed traditional Finnish food made from locally sourced fresh ingredients. We had good hearty fare that would keep any lumberjack happy…salmon soup, reindeer soup, vendace with potatoes, buckwheat pancakes and Karelian stew.
Savotta is open every day.
