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

First of all, I have to admit that I am a regular visitor at Kuurna. The food is always excellent, especially for the price. Even though the menu is small, I have always been able to find something on the menu that particularly appeals to me (there is also always a pepper steak on the specials board that is a... More

We had a table of 6 here for dinner on saturday night. I thought the good was really top drawer. It's an intimate little spot and the front of house staff were perfectly attentive without being OTT. The food is Finnish modern I suppose, classic Finnish recipes done in a more modern style. It's delicious. I had blood pudding with... More
