Nice little restaurant in Helsinki. Serves good French food, but could have been more exiting. The wines picked as sommeliers' choice was excellent! Recommends the place for couples that visits Helsinki, but do not expect wild fusion dishes.

I don't remember the last time I was so impressed with a local restaurant. I had high expectations but they were exceeded by the high quality and tasteful food, excellent wine list and extremely professional and friendly staff. This was a business dinner but I can't wait to go here again with my wife.

My wife had arranged us nice Friday evening with concert in Helsinki Musiikkitalo and then dinner in Muru. In Muru the combination of food and wines was such a fine balanced piece of art that I don't remember similar before. The crown for this experience was our waitress Saara - it was nice to get fluent, friendly service with quality... More

This is one of the new very good restaurants that have established in Helsinki lately. Very nice food and no menu, but the food changes everyday based on the best ingredients. We had the days menu and were very happy with it. Food was well made, tasty and enough but not too much. Menu is 52 euros per person. Staff... More

I at at Muru on a Friday night and found the restaurant welcoming and warm, from my first entering the restaurant. I took the tasting menu, which was recommended, and substituted the Burattaa for the whitefish as the first course and it was simple and sublime. The main course was a flank steak that night and it was tender and... More

We stepped into Muru on a Thursday evening. No reservation but the friendly staff tried their best tomplace us. After waiting a few minutes we were seated. The evening was excellent. For starters some whitebfish and a mozarello course. Both excellent. Main course was very tender steak. Finishing off with a beautiful icecream cake. Just too much to tell here.... More

Small and cosy setting, personal and intimate. There is no paper menu, staff will tell you the weekly highlights. Great food prepared from the chefs which make e.g. air dried ham themselves locally. Had the menu with matching wines - great combination! Highly recommended

The concept is deceivingly simple: use fresh seasonal raw materials and cook them to perfection. Muru does this well and with a friendly and attentive service. Food was excellent, as expected, and wine pairings interesting and well matched.
