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

This is small and very unobtrusive restaurant. I was invited here by a Finnish colleague. The restaurant is very small with maybe 6 or 7 tables of different sizes, and with the kitchen also being very small, the menu is restricted, but nevertheless, I found no problem choosing something. The food itself is very well prepared and presented, and certainly... More

Small and intimate place, reservation is nearly allways needed. Menu usually have 3 options for every course, and some specials on chalk board. Portions are quite small and overall quite average, nothing special or extremely tasty, but not bad either. Service and atmosfare are excellent.

The menu contains three choices and there are some additional choices available (such as an excellent tartar). The basic menu has itemes which are use local ingredients but have some international inspiration.... More

I had dinner at Kuurna with my girlfriend on our first night in Helsinki. The location is a light stroll away from the train station. The restaurant itself is very small and "intimate" - one noisy table can ruin everyone's dinner. The menu is very limited but the food was decent. Nothing exceptional - even a bit bland for my...

I was with a group of business colleagues and it was the right kind of venue for our group - neither too formal nor too informal. The food was pleasant enough. It was quite interesting because they have a small menu, but effectively we were told what we should have for each course. I had a slight feeling that this... More

This little restaurant has a intimate atmosphere and you really feel personally taken care of. The menu, which is changing regularly, offers a small but fine selection. Some meals are local specialties. A reservation is recommended especially on weekend evenings.

This small gem is easily missed if you walk by - I know from experience! The small outdoor sign simply proclaims "restaurant" but don't let the understatement fool you. On a quiet street not far from the bustle of the Matkasatama and major tourist sites. Very small, probably no more than 8-10 tables in a cozy environment. A few years... More
