Unique 210-year-old log house on the Tervasaari Island

Savu has a beautiful location on the Tervasaari Island, just 15 min walk from Helsinki Market Square. Road connection from street Pohjoisranta leads to the island so it’s possible to bring the guests by car/bus to the island. The red log storehouse, built in 1805 for storing tar barrels, creates a unique milieu for Restaurant Savu. In the old days households were counted based on the number of smoke (=Savu) plumes you could see rising from a village - so the restaurant is the only "savu" on the island.

The à la carte menu changes seasonally and offers also aromas of smoke and pine tar. The classic dessert is Savu’s Pancakes, which are served with several delicious accompaniments. The dining room has seats for 80 persons and the summer terrace for 150 persons, of which 100 seats are covered with a pavilion tent. The historical storehouse provides a unique milieu also for bigger private events.
