Have been here a couple of times and all the visits have been pleasurable. Wine list is a bit pricey but this seems to be quite general in Helsinki. The place was half full and customers seemed to have a great time. The owner? stopped by every table making us all feel welcome and relaxed. Nice service all in all.... More

Muru offered us a wonderful four course dinner. The service was truly excellent with friendly waiters and so much knowledge among them about the food and wines. The maincourse lamb was cooked perfectly and worked well with the puree and finely prepared vegetables it was served with. Red wine recommended by a male waiter was sublime. They have a daily...

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
