Uncomplicated temporary food with fantastic taste

This is a small and picturesque, modest looking basement restaurant. I have visited this place many times, and it has never let me down. The food tastes spectacular, everything is done in a simple way with one purpose only; to enjoy. Wine list is very nice with some gems (if not cheap). If you like... read more

We were having a dinner in this interesting minimalistic restaurant the second time with my wife. The first time was super nice, but this second time it was a bit disapointment in several areas. First of all our table was next to the smoking people who were quite drunk going out smoking all the time and after that smelling like...!... More

Kuurna is a small restaurant and you are close to the open kitchen. But if you do not mind the smell of cooking the restaurant feels very cosy. The food was good and tasty. The service level was OK, but during our evening there was only one waitress which meant that we sometimes felt somewhat forgotten. But all in all,... More

I wonder why I haven't visited this place before although I always have wanted to. Very good food, great wines and nice service. And the bill was actually less than I expected. Will definitely go again!

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 !
