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 :)

We felt very welcome during our meal at Muru. We had the menu of the day. The presentation was great and the food very tasty! The atmosphere of the restaurant was pleasant as well. Would go back anytime!

There is probably no other restaurant in Helsinki where the sommelier has to scramble up a ladder to fetch your wine. The wine cellar is actually a wine loft (see photo). The restaurant is small and cozy but not "too close." We were graciously re-seated to a better table at our request by the maître d' and he explained the... More

I had a 4 courses menu. It was an excellent experience. Superb combination of foods and wines. Young, friendly and incredible motivated staff. Warm atmosphere.

Went for a business dinner at Muru, I found a very nice ambiance and a friendly service. French style cuisine with a Finnish touch! We had the dinner menu 4 courses for bit more than 50€ each plus wines and it was a very good choice. I definitely recommend it.

The athmosphere was laid back. We enjoyed a four course meal and the food was of high quality, but value wise it was just ok. (Ca 100 euro per person) The dining area was quite dense, too many diners stuffed in same room.

We dined at Muru with my friend to celebrate a special occasion and wish we hadn't. The restaurant used to be one of our favorite places in Helsinki, but it seems to have lost its grip. As an appetizer we had risotto that had been waiting on a plate for all too long - it was dry and not eatable.... More

Adorable place and very friendly staff. Our waitress was lovely and polite. She was so happy all the time. Nice to see that they have good athmosphere! Aperitive champagne was excellent. Toasty and fresh. Food was honest and so so delicious. We had menu of the day, 4 courses, and every bite was full of flavour. Brisket pastrami melted in... More

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
