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

Nice little restaurant in Helsinki. Serves good French food, but could have been more exiting. The wines picked as sommeliers' choice was excellent! Recommends the place for couples that visits Helsinki, but do not expect wild fusion dishes.

I don't remember the last time I was so impressed with a local restaurant. I had high expectations but they were exceeded by the high quality and tasteful food, excellent wine list and extremely professional and friendly staff. This was a business dinner but I can't wait to go here again with my wife.

My wife had arranged us nice Friday evening with concert in Helsinki Musiikkitalo and then dinner in Muru. In Muru the combination of food and wines was such a fine balanced piece of art that I don't remember similar before. The crown for this experience was our waitress Saara - it was nice to get fluent, friendly service with quality... More

This is one of the new very good restaurants that have established in Helsinki lately. Very nice food and no menu, but the food changes everyday based on the best ingredients. We had the days menu and were very happy with it. Food was well made, tasty and enough but not too much. Menu is 52 euros per person. Staff... More
