Fair warning: we did not dine at every fine dining establishment in Helsinki. However, during our nine days there, Muru was our most delicious meal.

 This place is popular. Do not expect to snag a table as a walk in. We tried and had to go the on line reservation route. On the night that we were turned away, the... More

We went with the chef's 4 course menu plus wine selected for each dish and it was very enjoyable. Our waiter Markos was excellent. You will need reservations for one of their tow nightly seatings.

My husband and I had one of our most delicious food experiences in this wonderful restaurant. Interesting tastes, beautifully served, accompanied by excellent wine (recommended by our very enthusiastic and charming waiter) and enjoyed amidst others clearly enjoying this most delightful environment. We would thoroughly recommend Muru but please book to avoid disappointment.

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
