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

Very pleasant restaurant, with jolly staff, nice atmosphere, and good food. Not pretentious, just decent all round service and cooking at a reasonable price.

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.

Definitely worth a visit! Staff is very nice and polite and the food is always delicious. They have great wines too. We usually take the day's menu (about 56e per person) and never been disappointed. They have the best chocolate fondant. I have been in Muru for maybe five times, and will go back again!

We had the set menu for 52 euros: refreshing citrus flavoured salmon and white fish cervice; moist duck breast; cheese with cherry vinegar and choux pastry with praline filling and raspberry sorbet. All very well prepared and well paced service in spite of it being busy. The waitress advised on wines or each course all of which ( including a... More

The food was too simple for what you expect and what you pay. We only could make a reservation at 8.30pm and got 2 courses served in half an hour. The wine was good, but with that selection off wine we expected much better food.
