What a nice lunch we had at Juuri’s! Their specialty is “Sapas,” which are Finnish small bites. These are meant as starters. We would have liked to try them all, but we only chose five to have as appetizers. We started with a Chef’s complimentary amuse-bouche, which was whipped goat cheese with beet juice marinated fennel and small, thin spelt... More

Restaurant decor may surprise you. It is an extremely poor. Something is wrong with air condition or heating: it is simply cold inside. But the food is very delicious. I was glad to try local specialities here.

Juuri is a cute little restaurant walking distance from city center. I'm not the biggest fan of traditional finnish food, since I tend to think it is a bit boring. BUT when it is prepared with obvious love for cooking, with the strangest ingredients put together with skill, the experience is fantastic. Juuri really delivered. I had fish, my husband... More

Kitchen collection of Sapas for starters were the absolute highlight. Fantastic selection. Main courses filet + pike (this is a very risky fish but they managed pretty well, not perfect though) were good. I had the domestic cheeses for dessert and they were absolutely fabulous with a nice glass of tawny port. Restaurant is very good and rather expensive.

Juuri describes itself as a Finnish Tapas restaurant; I'd describe it as inspired modern Finnish fusion restaurant with dishes designed to be shared, begrudgingly. When you think about Finnish cuisine, you tend to think about hearty simple food to get you through the dark nights and cold days. Staples like breadcheese, salmon soup and reindeer in generous proportions. Juuri has... More

We had four course menu. All courses were fabulous. The tapas and main fish course sensational. Service a little bit slow

I went to Juuri for Lunch and had a mixture of "Finnish tapas" and a fish appetizer. It was an amazing mixture of flavors and textures, very good fish. There are a lot of different mayonnaises, this seems to be characteristic even for the modernized cuisine. The portions could be a little bit more substantial. The atmosphere is very nice... More

The set menu lunch was very good. This is fine dining where we could tell the cook had put a lot of effort into combining the flavors.
