Must be on every foodie's radar

I very rarely write Trip Advisor review since I have my own blog, but in the case of Kuurna, I feel the need to spread the word far and wide about the phenomenal food they present here.

A very nice restaurant with dishes that make the most of good quality seasonal produce. Flavours compliment each other well and the waiters are more than happy to suggest wines to go with your meal. The menu changes every fortnight to reflect what is currently in season. Well worth a slight walk out from the city centre. The restaurant is... More

Read the reviews on Tripadvisor, and liked the menu and the location/place so we got the last free table for the evening - as everything else was reserved. Came her with a friend and we both had three courses: On the positive side: - The ingredients seemed fresh and generally to be of good quality - The starters were good,... More

I was surprised how pleasant this simple nordic dishes are and how tasteful the herbs they use are. The restaurant can be a bit noisy.

Kuurna is a very special restaurant. Without knowing anything about Kuurna on beforehand I would probably not go in there, as the first impression is that this is a lower class pub and not a restaurant for good foot. But don’t let the first impression mislead you. This is a place where you will have very good food, and especially... More

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 Finnish fish, it doesn't get...

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!
