Small, expensive but causy!

First of all this is a gourmet restaurant, so it's quite expensive, excellent service and small portions. The menu doesn't have much selection. Some of the tastes are not for everyones taste buds. The wines are really good and the waiter will propose the best combination with your courses. So if... read more

Muru is a fairly small restaurant that was suggested to us by our hotel. It was filled with a variety of dinners, many of whom were young locals. The wait staff were excellent and knowledgeable. The menu for the day changes frequently and featured a main dish of rabbit with seasonal chantarelle mushrooms. The cheese course featured two special cheeses... More

We had a late dinner here. The menu changes daily. The recommendations for the day were amazing. We had a ceviche, risotto with source made of octupus ink and the main course was rabbit. All very well done and served with great wines. A place I will visit again.

Really high quality food & service, also sommellier's knowledge is outstanding. Their specialty is "daily menu", it keeps changing every week and it contains 4 dish dinner. Go and test this, but remember that prebooking is almost every day mandatory.

Despite living in Helsinki area, I had somehow missed this gem that foodies talk about. In some ways, it is in a category of its own. Fine dining in terms of quality of cooking, but straightforward, affordable, and not presumptuous. There are many great fine dining places in Helsinki, but few of them are this casual if you are into... More

Muru has lots of regular customers which is always a good sign. It represents French bistronomy, casual fine dining. Food is perfectly executed but remains on the safe side. Very interesting wine list and if you want to splurge the sommelier has a booklet of rare findings. Service is among the best in Helsinki. Try to reserve a table in... More

Good fresh food with a personal touch, not your everyday diner to go but for special occasions highly recommended. Good service and food allergies are taken to account.

This tiny eating place frequented mostly by the locals boasts of a daily menu of freshly sourced seafood and meats and seasonal vegetables. Located in a quiet street off the Bulevardi, it's central but requires a reservation as there are only a few tables. The wine selection is very special and of high quality. The orders are taken quickly and... More

We have been waiting for the perfect occasion to visit Muru; went on Saturday for my birthday. We had the menu with extra risotto and wines. All the dishes were really excellent but especially the weal cheek was one of the best pieces of meat I ever had. The atmosphere is also really great; no white table cloths :)
