This restaurant was recommended to us by a friend in Helsinki. A lovely ambience and delicious food. We went for the 5 course menu and it was a delightful journey of tastes and texture. The Sommelier was also very good with pairing wines for us. Highly recommend if you are in Helsinki.

Snobby, over-hyped and overpriced restaurant with nothing good to offer vegans and vegetarians. Not an enjoyable experience.

My boyfriend took me to this place for my bday and we had a fantastic time over at Muru. Really nice risotto, fish and wine. I definitely recommend.

We had daily menu that included 5 courses + wine pairing. Of that five 2 starters, main course and 2 deserts. First dish was fish which had a perfect texture and the sides were goodish. However, it clearly lacked something to remember it by. Wine pairing was fine, mild enough to go with so mild starter. Starter was a bit... More

Visited on a Friday night so it was very busy. Great little restaurant with a phenomenal wine list. The meat course of the day was a fantastic duck - haven't had as good a duck course in a very long time. Risotto a touch under-done but I still ate it all, it was very tasty.

The food was very good. I got the menu with the wine pairings. Everything was good but I really like the trout that was cooked perfectly.

Lovely atmosphere, extremely friendly service and excellent food. Menu is quite limited but they can modify it according to dietary restrictions (e.g. we had a vegetarian/fish version which worked really well).

Really excellent. What a find! A small, delightful little restaurant with excellent food and service. The menu changes daily. I had pumpkin soup which was beyond good, followed by the best halibut ever. Very attentive service too. Overall, brilliant.

First time in this small restaurant (I have tried to book a table earlier, but without success - very popular restaurant) and totally satisfied! You really felt welcome when you entered the restaurant and this continued throughout the whole dinner. Food was excellent in taste, portions were of good size and the wine recommendations were professional. Advance booking is recommended... More
