Delicious food - a delightful holiday
In the restaurants and cafés of the Savonlinna region you may discover delicacies which will tempt your taste buds - delicacies that you would not even dream of finding in the fast-food eateries of big cities. In most restaurants the food is prepared from fresh locally-produced ingredients and home-cooking traditions are cherished. Therefore especially fish and game dishes are highly recommended.
Culinary tours and medieval atmosphere
The medieval terrace restaurant Hilpeä Munkki Castle and summer restaurant Linnakrouvi situated right next to Olavinlinna are amongst the most atmospheric culinary venues and definitely worth visiting. The Huvila Brewery Restaurant is known for its beers and ciders as well as gourmet meals and live outdoor concerts. The Majakka Restaurant, situated by the Passenger Harbour, is a long-time favourite amongst visitors and local inhabitants in Savonlinna, having served for almost 40 years. Traditional food in Savo-Karelian style is served by a number of farm holiday establishments, such as Tynkkylän Lomaniemi in Punkaharju.
