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

I went to Muru with a little luck, booking the table the day before going... which is usually not possible. Here is my view on this experience : Ambiance: The restaurant has a very casual approach of service and presentation. I think it works well. I am more and more not interested to pay for a michelin star set up.... More

While Muru is best know for its food, you can also enjoy a glass of champage. The wine list here is great and the sommelier has won an award for the best sommelier in Finland. So nice food, great wine and friendly staff. Gotta luv this!

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.
