We had dinner on a Sunday night at Ravintola Kuu, having made an email booking several weeks in advance, as it seems not a lot of restaurants are open in Helsinki on a Sunday evening. I'd found this restaurant through a local blog, so wasn't 100% sure what to expect, but it was excellent. On arriving, the maitre de knew... More

Kuu isn't the fanciest place in Helsinki, which was just perfect for a Sunday night dinner! The food is well made and tastes great, we especially enjoyed the blini, which was huge and super fluffy. The overall atmosphere in the restaurant is a bit weird, but still quite cozy. We did enjoy the night though, and would come back for... More

We visited here after reading reviews on Trip advisor and it was fantastic. Lovely ambience, food was presented lovely and tasted amazing. The service was excellent with suggestions from our waiter and the time between courses was perfect. We had the 4 course Kuu banquet. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

We chose the champagne menu, which was a good decision. The staff, food and atmosphere is excellent in the restaurant.

Was here with my girlfriend last weekend. We tried the reindeer steak and it rocked. It was so good and tender. The salmon soup as a starter is also a must-do. They have amazing bread, was very tasty indeed. Highly recommend this place. We have a great dining experience. Keep it up guys!!

Kuu offers typical Finnish cuisine at reasonable prices. Menu doesn't really favor people who prefer vegetarian or lactose free diet. However the kitchen was able to meet the challenge and come up with tasty vegan 3-course meal when asked. Small but popular place so reservation is recommended for bigger groups ( 4 person or more).

As many have already correctly stated the salmon soup is really great. My mouth is watering writing this review in fact. He reindeer is also great but it's worth noting that the whole plate of food with the reindeer works incredibly well together. Have been to Helsinki 5 times in the last 18 months and Kuu is the best place... More

We have rather old restaurants in different parts of Helsinki and this one is in Töölö district, close to the center. The food is like old times, good and rather healthy. You decide.
