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. The... More

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

Charming small restaurant. Had fresh water pike as main course that was light and delicious. Warm chocolate cake for dessert was amazing. Nice wine by the glass selection. Three course dinner; three choices for each.

The restaurant is not huge and split across a few rooms. There is a set price for 3 courses, and the choices are good although not a huge number of them. There were also specials listed on a blackboard that could be chosen. The emphasis was on seasonal ingredients and although the place is reasonably casual to look at, the... More

I have been there multiple times with friends and we loved the restaurant. The menu changes every two three weeks following the season ingredients. Price for the full menu is very reasonable for Helsinki standards while the ambience is homely ans not impersonal as similar restaurants in the city.

I had a wonderful meal here, where I tried and decided I liked horse. The restaurant is small and cool, and the service is friendly. Good wine selection and course pacing. I'll go back when I'm next in Helsinki.

I dont know if Kuurna is supposed to look retro fashionable or what but to me it looked funny. Toilets were not nice. My seat was very close to a heater, a hot one, it was not nice to sit there. But the main thing: food - it was good, some of it very good.

Thank hanneliii
