Enjoyed at very good lunch with 'Sapas'. A great invention by this very pleasant restaurant. Not so lucky with the service, but would still recommend this place warmly.

The concept with the tasty and excellent Sapas is the nordic answer to spanish Tapas. The staff is very friendly and the service is perfect.

I had 5 different "Sapas", all totally different. I ate slowly to savour each new experience, and they were all good. Such a range of colour, flavour and texture. Each small dish held a surprising amount of food. The waiter was intent on making sure her diners each enjoyed themselves. It was a delight to watch her work.

The place to sample Sapas, Finnish style tapas. The Sapas are incentive and tasty, with bases of artic char, horse, grouse, and pork shoulder. The sauces are varied. A great way to enjoy the variety of Finland's flavors.

We were taken here to show us Fine Dining Finnish style and we were not disapointed. the Finnish tapas was absolutely gorgeous, along with the fresh breads which complimented our food. the main meal was cooked to perfection, please check out their menu as it needs to be explored and enjoyed. this is not cheap but it is very good

That you could get such delicious, innovative and unusual food in Helsinki. Each mouthful of our lunch was sublime. Small portions allow you to be dazzled by a variety of tastes and textures. The service was helpful with appropriate suggestions and the overall experience was satisfying and different. We were glad we had read the restaurant's website beforehand as it... More

I won't say much about the concept or background of Juuri - have a look at the lovely website for a much better rendition! Suffice it to say that the food at Juuri (which I was told by our lovely waiter means "roots") is pretty much exclusively based on traditional local/regional products and dishes, but with a very contemporary execution....

Popular Helsinki restaurant serving modern Finnish dishes in small tapas plates. Juuri also does main courses and you probably need both if this is your main meal. Interesting dishes and flavour combinations and very relaxed atmosphere. Serves what they say is the best gin and tonic in the world. It is very good and lethally strong!

Not impressed by this place: basic décor, looks very crammed. Service was basic too. This is not a tapas restaurant but a "mouthful" restaurant. Every course is a mouthful, not more! Even the main courses. The extremely overpriced food was at least very tasty but left with a bad feeling of being conned!

Thank Jari R

Authentic flavours, wanton passion, wild herbs, crazy ideas, love for artisan produce and the skill to make incredibly tasty food. This is what Juuri is made of. We want you to enjoy being our guest and to leave in good spirits. Our recipe is simple: we do things right in the kitchen, we respect the raw materials, we want to exceed expectations and we delight in our own work. The result is food rooted in enjoyment. Many people today are discussing small producers and organic food. What could be better since at Juuri we have put them in a central position for nearly ten years. We favour the small and local for several reasons, and taste is certainly not the least of them. We have a rule of four P's for our raw ingredients: Perfect Produce from Preferred Producers. When products are transported from close by they arrive at the table in fresh condition. It is a joy to favour small and local.
