Simple yet delicious Franch cuisine downtown Helsinki. Without reservation it's practically impossible to get a table. Be early on your booking. Tasty menus in addition to well thought wine menus. It's a pleasure eating here!

We decided to try our luck and try to get a table in Muru without a reservation, even though we knew that the restaurant is usually booked months ahead and very popular among the people who know the hottest spots in Helsinki. As expected, the place was packed and we accepted our fate. We were already halfway down the street... More

The food was very nicely prepared, but it was not overwhelmingly great. We had good service in a bland restaurant setting. The price was similar to Michelin start rated restaurants. And it just simply was not worth it, for the level of cooking, atmosphere and portion sizes. A bit of a hype.

A bunch of us Skippy's were taken to dinner here by locals Yum! Antti our host was clearly known to the waiter and we put ourselves totally in their hands for courses and wines, The service was outstanding but not overbearing, friendly but not tooooo close and the food and wine was excellent. I took a peak at the menu... More

As a couple, we are somewhat experienced diners, and selected Muru to have a great evening with awesome restaurant experience. Yes, evening was great, but Muru left us thinking: everything was in order, the service, the food, wine menu, everything was good. No complaints. However, our expectations were that we will meet something unique, but the WOW was not there... More

We had a nice dinner at Muru with my wife on the basis of recommendations by several friends. They were right. Cosy atmosphere, very good food (not a large menu, but everything seemed delicious), nice wines, very friendly service. We'll be back.

Helsinki is one of the most under-rated venus for fine dining in Europe and, to many is not even on the radar. Nothing could be further from the truth and in Muru, Helsinki has unearthed another little gem. This is a small - high space where the owners have cunningly and to great effect used the eaves to store wine,... More

Maybe not the most prestigious restaurant in Helsinki but very good food for a decent price in fine dining category. The sommeliere recommended very good interesting wines from Greece and Slovenia. Perfect.

Had a special romantic dinner with wife and the daily menu, service and wines were absolutely brilliant. Everything was in balance and it is a delight to see that the staff is enjoying their work, that really reflects to customers. Can highly recommend this restaurant if you're into good food, wines and relaxing atmosphere.
