First, I must say this is a restaurant at my hometown, so they have a bit of homefield advantage, but with honesty, I can say this is the best restaurant in the city.

I've so far dined at Juurella (Roots or By the roots) twice, and the second time was better, I think. We made a reservation and it was fulfilled as such. I'd suggest to make a reservation, especially for busier evenings, like Saturday.

Restaurant decor is nice and modern. There's a picture of the street view on the wall from yesteryears, nicely putting the place in its history.

The food then. Restaurant's theme is, as I believe and where the name comes too, roots, in other words food from the close-by area and small producers. Basically, it's simple food, but made in perfection, with good taste, enough own ideas and nice output. I'm not a restaurant expert, but in my categorizing this falls between fine dining and high-end "normal" restaurant dining.

Also, a nice word must be given to the staff. We were served by few waiters/waitresses, and all gave good detail explaining what was on the plate, why and where it's coming from. They also give good tips on wines. I liked the approach.

We both had the restaurant menu + some drinks, the bill was around 100-120 euros.

Perhaps only thing I would change is the playlist heard on the restaurant. By no means, it wasn't loud, I just happen to be a music lover and always pay attention to these details too. Perhaps updating it a bit towards modern from the mid 90s hit radio feel would serve the purpose, given that this restaurant is popular among 30-somethings too.
