Juuri's cuisine is informed by Finnish traditions, updated to a modern feel, and seasonal wherever possible. A speciality is sapas (think tapas or small plates). Choose a few to share with the table: Herring à la Lindström with browned butter; baked porridge with smoked Baltic herring; lamb sausage tunisienne. The short list of entrées includes Finn cattle beer; trout from... More

I asked a Finnish friend to bring me to a good Finnish restaurant and she brought me here. We chose Finnish tapas (3 courses) of fish, Finnish baby potatoes with side cream, cabbage pie ,assorted white and rye bread and a cheese egg pie. It was also my first time to drink the local Finnish cola. Price is reasonable and... More

We greatly enjoyed our dinner at Juuri, at least as far as the fantastic, nouvelle-Finnish cuisine is concerned. We so enjoyed our small plates –– almost like some kind of Nordic tapas, if you will –– that we had trouble not ordering a third round. There is also an excellent wine list, a wonderful beer selection, and an amazing house-brewed... More

We really enjoyed Juuri. The staff was super helpful and knowledgable. The service was a bit slow a times, enough to where we had to ask for more water and the like, but not enough to make us unhappy. The food we had was really good. Everything had interesting flavors, and were all well presented. It's pricey, but all food... More

Absolutely "deliciously tastiest" food in the helsinki...we always research where to eat before we stop at a city, and try and visit eateries at different level(in terms of cost/value), and I must say the sapas(recommended by staff) gave us an idea of what to expect of our other meals. It was absolutly delicious. This was one of the best meals... More

A good local small restaurant trying to do something different with a traditional core. Low key setting, friendly staff and formally informal. Sapas were good, pork main course delicious. Attracts both locals and tourists. Recommended.

Juuri is a wonderful restaurant close to the Museum of Design. We had Sappas (the Finnish version of tapas) and they were delicious. Main dish and dessert were iqually good. The staff is very, very friendly. However, it is relatively expensive, even for Helsinki.

The setting may be nice but the food was pretty much inedible and the service awful. The sapas were tiny portions with no distinctive taste.. just over seasoned, nothing fresh about them. The beef was even worse. It smelled really bad, was impossible to chew, almost tasteless. The side cake thing tasted like a Mcnugget after it has gone bad.... More

For lunch my partner and I shared a number of Sapas which we were advised by our waitress were the Finnish equivalent of Tapas. All of the ones that we selected were absolutely delicious and highly unusual but for the price a little smaller than we expected. That said, supplemented by a selection of delicious home made breads, we did... More

All in all the ambiente, the waiters, the wines, the location are exquisitely chosen. The food and the presentation of it are of best quality, yet -and that is a strong YET- the portions are the epitome of tiny. The amount of food is almost ridiculous compared to the price. We greatly enjoyed our dinner, but one doesn't have to... More
