Ok. Evereything was ok. Had the first seating. Good food. Good service. Did change some of the portions on the menu. Do not do it. Then it's getting expensive. Might go again.

We dined at Kuurna in December 2014. All in all everything went smoothly: the service was welcoming and relaxed, the food was delicious and the value for money was excellent. For me, Kuurna is very much like Muru - a popular fine dining restaurant in Helsinki. The food is pretty similar, and I would say equally delicious. Muru has a... More

Great meal - less fussy than some other places in similar price range but really delivered on flavour and best wine selection we found in Helsinki. Well worth a visit - looked after very well by staff- thank you

I was taken here by some local Finns, all of whom are interested in fine dining. As I understood it, the food served here is a contemporary spin on classic Finnish dishes - the very tasty pork cheek rolled in cabbage being a variation on cabbage rolls and so on. I enjoyed all dishes very much - lovely soup, and... More

Upon arrival I was wondering if I had come to the right place. It was very small and felt like a private kitchen. The service was warm and quite knowledgeable and the food and wines was really good all the way. You truly feel welcome here - and will be back for more !

The entre: trout roe fillled tortellini, was simply excellent. The main course: pork cheeks in barbecue sauce was superb. The wine recomended well paired to the food. Good and knowable service. Look for the ravintola sign as the name Kuurna does not appear from outside. Highly recommended.

Kuurna never ever fails you! Their food is delicious every single time: fresh Finnish tastes, no tricks or anything too much - just real food, real ingredients, real delicacies. In addition, service is great and the place is comfy and homey. What's best, the price is really affordable so you don't have to pay nearly as much as you do... More

I first visited Kuurna less than a year ago. This time we were four, two Americans and two Finns. The Kuurna concept is to serve dinner twice per evening, at six and and eight thirty. It is a small place (old cellar/shop) with a rough interior and four-five larger tables and two-three smaller (for two) ones. It is presently quite... More
