Description: 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.

“A wonderful selection”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

While visiting Helsinki four of us went to Juuri for lunch. Since we couldn't decide which of the sapas to order, we solved the dilemma by ordering all of them and sharing. Everything was delicious and gave us a great taste of Finland. Coming from NY, USA we didn't feel that it was expensive for what we received and we left full and happy.

“Want to have a taster of Finnish foods? Here you go!”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We went to Juuri for dinner on Monday evening to enjoy our honeymoon. First point, reserve a table. There were at least a dozen groups who couldn't get a table. We shared six Sapas portions for starters (smoked salmon, pork sausage, tartar, cabbage, perch...). Small dishes to get a taste of different Finnish foods were a nice start. They are mostly cold dishes so i wouldn't take them without a main course. For main course we had wild boar and whitefish, both excellent. Wine recommendations went well. We had (Finnish) cheeses for the dessert, they were ok. Service was excellent, atmosphere was nice. Would definitely recommend Juuri especially for someone who wants to have fine food made of Finnish ingredients. Food with wines about 80eur/person.

“Worth the price”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

Yummy small samples (sapas) of different Finnish products, good wine, excellent service.
It does not come cheap, but it is definitely worth a visit.

“Nice food but expensive”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

The best thing about this restaurant was the friendly and knowledgeable service. The sapas (Finnish tapas) tasted lovely, but the portions were tiny (much smaller than usual tapas portions). We still felt hungry after leaving the restaurant, and sadly felt somewhat ripped off.

“Expensive but delicious”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

You'll probably need to make a reservation to get a table here as it's very busy. The food is delicious but expensive so this restaurant was a special treat for us but we were not disappointed. Service was excellent - efficient and friendly. The petits fours (desert) were lovely. Kitchen shuts at 10pm so don't go too late!
