Visited with work colleagues. A set 4 course meal was served with wine selected by the restaurant for each course. Salmon to start followed by lamb then cheese and finished off with a fantastic dessert. Expensive but well worth it.

Muru is a finnish word with two translations; officially "Crumb" and unofficially "Darling" or "Honey". My reservation was confirmed via email and signed "Looking forward to see you - Crumbles". I am not sure how it translates but it is a nice way to wellcome a customer. The same touch continued inside this small resteurant. We felt wellcomed and service... More

We had such a lovely dinner here last night (August 2014). We are visiting from Tanzania and the UK and were looking for a 'local' restaurant. I checked out the website and was impressed with the local food selections and that it appeared to be run by three friends (website was in finnish so I guessed). Dinner was really fantastic,... More

I had a three course dinner on Friday evening in Muru. We we there so early (at 5 pm) that reservation was possible just a few days before. But still, the place was packed. Both the starters and main course were excellent, but the crown of the dinner was the chocolate fondant, which was the best I have ever had.... More

A return visit to Finland after a year meant Muru had to be tried again. It did not disappoint. It still amazes me how that tiny kitchen produces such fine dining. It helps that there are some daily specials - a risotto, say, and a few other dishes and then a set menu with an optional wine-pairing. Everything is well-sourced,... More

My wife and I had a Friday evening dinner in Muru. We decided to go for the menu with wine suggestions. The food and wines were excellent. We had made the reservation in good time but our table was in the back of the restaurant totally nothing to see. The staff was friendly but "not present. The price was terrible,... More

I had high expectations, when going in to Muru. Together with my wife, we had nearly everything on the menu. I had 5 courses and she had 3. We were both somewhat disappointed. The food was well prepared and pretty good, but nothing special. It was not a bad meal, but I would have expected more innovative and distinct flavors.... More

This place is a joke. The food was partly great and partly mediocre. If you wanna just hang out, the place might be good, but if you wanna go to a restaurant and have real food, skip this place. We had a menu of four different foods. The size of the plates was so terribly terribly terribly too small -... More

I have visited Muru a couple of times during the years. During the first visits they were simply outstanding, then "only" excellent and now they are back on track again - outstanding food, wines and service last week!
