Kuurna has been my favourite for years in the centre of Helsinki. This time it was better then ever. Three-course menu was brilliant, portions fresh and genuine, unpretentious. The interior is also warm and welcoming, not one of those generic white-on-white restaurants.

First things first........reasonably priced for Finland 100€ for 2X3course meals and a glass of a wine. I agree with last reviewer starters better than mains. Herrings delicate and soft served with fried black currant leaves pickled cucumber and currants. Lamb slightly over cooked but lots of flavour. Fish lovely and fresh but not very distinctive. Dessert berries with a failed... More

Our expectations were high based on reviews. We ordered 4 different dishes. The starters were tasty and good, Kivipiiras being completely new to me. The main dishes were terrible on comparison. Lamb was cooked until gray, and the whitefish, while perfectly cooked, didn't taste much over the buttery vegetables underneath. The service was cold and even rude, he didn't even... More

We had our anniversary dinner here and it was just perfect for it. Small, intimate place with excellent food. View isn't anything to write home about.

I had spotted this cozy restaurant long time ago, but always postponed to go there, Big mistake! They have a 2 or 3 courses menu. You have to choose from 3 starters, 3 main dishes and 3 deserts. My wife had as starter ox heart, which was amazing! They also have some daily specials, if you want to upgrade your... More

We came here as a small group of friends and had a great evening. The service was very friendly and knowledgeable, and the food tasted very good. The menu changes every 2 weeks and uses seasonal and local ingredients - and you can really notice that when you eat here! Great evening all around.

Nice finnish food, a bit salty :-) but good. We were two carnivores and two vegetarians and everybody enjoyed their menue. The service was very friendly and fast. When I forgot something at the restaurant, they even called me on my mobile (they had my number from the reservation).

We ended our first day in Helsinki in this small and, from the outside, unassuming looking restaurant. We were, from the start, pleasantly surprised. The staff was very friendly. However, as the meals arrived, we realized we had entered a true chef's restaurant. And indeed that is the history of this restaurant: opened in 2001, it was among the first,... More

From reading the many reviews, it seems we were at this place on a different night than other reviewers. To make the booking online was simple, as was their accommodation of our request to push the booking back by 30mins, The restaurant's acoustics are terrible, noise is projected everywhere coupled with fact the chairs scrape loudly across the floor.

I took my husband here for his birthday on a recommendation. I am a vegan so I emailed well beforehand to see if they would be able to accommodate us. They answered that of course they would be happy to. The restaurant is beautiful and unique in an old space near the downtown. We enjoyed a three course menu, mine... More
