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.

“OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013

I've heard that is a popular place and the food was OK, but nothing that special to go wow and come back. Loved the glasses (Marimekko?)

“A wonderful selection”
5 of 5 bubbles 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!”
4 of 5 bubbles 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”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.
