Some might have noticed, I am a big fan of Muru. This time we had a dinner (+10 people) and still everything worked great. Food was delicious, service friendly and professional and the athmosphere superb. We had the four courses were well made and very tasty. Great combination of different flavors - absolutely worth the money. Thanks again

Muru has been excellent every time I have visited there. Food is always very tasty, dishes are innovative and the staff is very welcoming. The weekends are extremely busy so you might have to reserve a table months before visiting. Weekdays are easier to get a table. My favorite restaurant in Helsinki.

Muru has become our first choice for any business-related dinner, regardless if it's with clients or a celebration within the company. The price level is affordable - I'm happy to spend my own money there as well. I think I've been close to 10 times in the restaurant now, and I have never left unhappy. I would recommend that you...

Muru has been a huge success and a hit from day one and you can't really argue. Menu is simplistic, daily offerings always on hand, great bistro/rustic style food, best sommelier in Helsinki and very good service. The best thing is that the quality has not dropped since they started and became a huge hit. Top 5 in Helsinki.

A very cosy and nice Place. Fine dining but the service makes it relaxed. Maybe a bit over the top with some of the food, but that is not away from the experience and the quality! Will definetly go again!

I've been to Muru 3 times: once for business and twice with my husband. This place is very special: even though it is trendy, it's still small and cozy. I love their surprise menu concept - they have daily special menus with a whole course planned out just for that day. You may even ask the waiter that he/she does... More

Very good food à la francaise, very nice service. You must make a reservation to eat in this very small place, where I get the feeling that there is sometimes more staff than guests.

Muru is one of the best restaurants in Helsinki! We were 8 of us and we had 5 course set menu and it was fascistic! You can also order from a´la cart menu if you want! The wines were very good . The wines were recommended by the staff. The atmosphere is good and the staff knows what they are... More

My wife had pike perch and I had lamb chops as a main course. The third course was cheeese with cherry chutney . As a... More

This is my favourite Helsinki restaurant by far. The restaurant is nice, stylish and cosy. The staff is friendly and attentive. But best of all, the food is heavenly:) Just love the three course dinner there: wonderful from starter to main course and the delicious dessert. You simply cannot opt out from any dish. I went there thinking that I'll... More
