The Särkänlinna Restaurant is located in a fortress building on Särkkä island, with views towards Helsinki and out to the open sea. Särkänlinna is one of the most popular summer restaurants in Helsinki. Our menu is based on the best ingredients, the archipelago culture and the Finnish food seasons. Särkänlinna has always been the perfect venue for weddings and summer parties and for enjoying the crayfish season.


Dinner by the sea

Founded in 1924 on Särkä Island, the castle restaurant is one of the best venues for the summer season and one of the city’s most popular crab and dinner restaurants.

A short boat ride and you are away from the hustle and bustle of the city. You can just enjoy the summer scenery and the eye-catching beautiful maritime Helsinki. The restaurant offers unobstructed views of the open sea and Kaivopuisto, and the absolute culmination of dinner is the sunset by the sea.
