5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had our most memorable meal of a two and a half week holiday at Kuu. We chose different set menus - the Helsinki at 48 euros and the Kuu at 51 euros. Both were superb, with fresh and high quality ingredients, careful use of herbs and saucing and intense flavours. The service is friendly and very efficient. A good... More

A little out of the city centre but well worth it. We had an excellent reindeer steak as main course (never had it before but highly recommend!) along with a very good beef dish. The starters were also excellent.

Kuu is a friendly neighborhood restaurant a short taxi ride outside the tourist area. My husband had a modern take on a classic Finnish menu---a soup of cream, potato and smoked salmon and then reindeer fillet. I had the vegetarian option--beets and goat cheese in a deep fried pastry with wild mushrooms and fresh peas. Very delicious and beautifully presented.... More

Kuu has excellent reviews and for a reason: it truly is one of the finest restaurants in Helsinki. First of all the milieu is very pleasant with vibes from 1930s (even the background music) and some nice pieces of more recent art, e.g. Alexander Calder's print. Second, service is extremely polite - in fact so polite that I tipped the... More

We went here for the lunch today. The starter was just excellent - slightly salted arctic char tartar with gherkin. I would strongly recommend that! The main course was although the most disgusting meat meal I have ever had - grilled beef flank steak with Port wine sauce. It sounds really delicious, especially with the port wine sauce.. but the... More

We selected Kuu based on its TripAdvisor rating, and we were not disappointed. First, let me make it clear that this restaurant, while centrally located, is not in a tourist area. It is more of a local restaurant that serves regular clientele. Awesome. Just what you want when you visit a city, right? We didn't actually expect this when we... More

Very tasty food but a bit slow service. It took one hour and a half for lunch. Lunch menu is very small, but every dish is perfect, including desserts. We were five persons, including kids, so we tried almost everything. Highly recommend.

Great food and lovely service. We took the jubilee (50 years) Helsinki menu (48 EUR) that had absolutely fantastic lamb starter followed by Artic char fish , cheese and desert. Great quality nice presentation and great value for money. I would certainly revisit on my next trip to Helsinki.

We came to this small unassuming restaurant the first night we arrived in Helsinki upon recommendation from our hotel concierge. My wife wasn't feeling well and I only wanted something small to eat, so I ordered the dinner portion of salmon soup. It arrived, piping hot with 2 huge pieces of salmon on top of a delicious potato soup. It... More

Peaceful situation, but walkable even from the citycenter. Familylike in selfconsious way. People living in this area are using this restaurant too, take the hint!
