Good fresh food with a personal touch, not your everyday diner to go but for special occasions highly recommended. Good service and food allergies are taken to account.

This tiny eating place frequented mostly by the locals boasts of a daily menu of freshly sourced seafood and meats and seasonal vegetables. Located in a quiet street off the Bulevardi, it's central but requires a reservation as there are only a few tables. The wine selection is very special and of high quality. The orders are taken quickly and... More

We have been waiting for the perfect occasion to visit Muru; went on Saturday for my birthday. We had the menu with extra risotto and wines. All the dishes were really excellent but especially the weal cheek was one of the best pieces of meat I ever had. The atmosphere is also really great; no white table cloths :)

We felt very welcome during our meal at Muru. We had the menu of the day. The presentation was great and the food very tasty! The atmosphere of the restaurant was pleasant as well. Would go back anytime!

There is probably no other restaurant in Helsinki where the sommelier has to scramble up a ladder to fetch your wine. The wine cellar is actually a wine loft (see photo). The restaurant is small and cozy but not "too close." We were graciously re-seated to a better table at our request by the maître d' and he explained the... More

I had a 4 courses menu. It was an excellent experience. Superb combination of foods and wines. Young, friendly and incredible motivated staff. Warm atmosphere.

Went for a business dinner at Muru, I found a very nice ambiance and a friendly service. French style cuisine with a Finnish touch! We had the dinner menu 4 courses for bit more than 50€ each plus wines and it was a very good choice. I definitely recommend it.

The athmosphere was laid back. We enjoyed a four course meal and the food was of high quality, but value wise it was just ok. (Ca 100 euro per person) The dining area was quite dense, too many diners stuffed in same room.
