Raindeer liver was excellent. As starters we tool snails, they were ok but the cheese cover was a bit thick for our taste. Friendly service. Price in accordance with the time and location (Opera festival time in Savonlinna)

Thank you so much Photoner for your detailed review and great rating. We are proud of our speciality: delicious reindeer liver. The snail dish shall be checked for a balanced flavor and texture. Hope to see you returning soon to Sarastro and Savonlinna!

Seldom do we ever eat at a restaurant where all the dishes are excellent but this was one such occasion. It was the best meal we had in Finland and my reindeer liver main course was the best liver I have ever had.

We had shrimps in a pot and crab salad. Food was good albeit the shrimp pot was quite spicy. Fast and friendly service and we will return one day.

Outside restaurant close to castle and popular with opera goers. Friendly service was somewhat slow because they were busy. Food was good.
