I first visited Kuurna less than a year ago. This time we were four, two Americans and two Finns. The Kuurna concept is to serve dinner twice per evening, at six and and eight thirty. It is a small place (old cellar/shop) with a rough interior and four-five larger tables and two-three smaller (for two) ones. It is presently quite popular, so it can be very noisy (you hear also the cooking, which is just behind a low wall). The food is basically Finnish and the menu changes every two weeks, so the cook has a lot of practice in the end of the period! You can get some interesting choices for a additional cost. The end of May menu was very good: as appetizers, herring, sausage or fresh cheese with nettles. We tried them all and they were very delicious. Main course had also three choices: pike with crab sauce, peas and new potatoes, asparagus in false morel sauce and horse filet. We had the two first alternatives and the asparagus with morels was especially delicious (one of us had a "green" menu with all the ingredients more or less green). One normally does not get enough morels in a morel sauce, be this time was different. The pike was esthetically less pleasing but the combination with crab sauce was very good, and the peas really nicely cooked. The desserts were simple but tasty, and not too sweet. Afterwards we discussed with the young cook, who told us that this was his first job after restaurant school. He had learned the trade very quickly and seemed to like his work. Service was quick and excellent and the bread is homemade and very nice. Even the butter was specially made. So, if you wish to experience Finnish food at its best, Kuurna is the place! But be warned: in warm summer evenings it can be pretty hot and there is no outdoor seating. The surroundings is very pleasant, however, so after the meal you can stroll in the harbour and enjoy the cool sea wind.
