Beforehand the menu didn't look exactly interesting, but afterwards, what a great evening! Charming place, smooth service, excellent food, and the portions were just perfect size. Location is a bit hidden, not likely to randomly walk by. Doesn't make any difference though. Top recommendation. I see this place sold out for nice office pre-Christmas parties.

Kuurna is tucked away in a residential area near Helsinki centre. The place can be described as "shabby chic". It is small (reservations necessary) and intimate, somewhat noisy but warm and welcoming. The concept is simple: Three entrees, three main dishes and three desserts to choose from. Basically Fish-meat-veggie. We had vendace roe (the orange caviar from a small herringrelated... More

The ambience is excellent . A small but very well cooked and presented menu. I visited it twice during a short stay as the food was so well cooked . I can recommend it without hesitation.

Kuurna has been my favourite for years in the centre of Helsinki. This time it was better then ever. Three-course menu was brilliant, portions fresh and genuine, unpretentious. The interior is also warm and welcoming, not one of those generic white-on-white restaurants.

First things first........reasonably priced for Finland 100€ for 2X3course meals and a glass of a wine. I agree with last reviewer starters better than mains. Herrings delicate and soft served with fried black currant leaves pickled cucumber and currants. Lamb slightly over cooked but lots of flavour. Fish lovely and fresh but not very distinctive. Dessert berries with a failed... More

Our expectations were high based on reviews. We ordered 4 different dishes. The starters were tasty and good, Kivipiiras being completely new to me. The main dishes were terrible on comparison. Lamb was cooked until gray, and the whitefish, while perfectly cooked, didn't taste much over the buttery vegetables underneath. The service was cold and even rude, he didn't even... More

We had our anniversary dinner here and it was just perfect for it. Small, intimate place with excellent food. View isn't anything to write home about.

I had spotted this cozy restaurant long time ago, but always postponed to go there, Big mistake! They have a 2 or 3 courses menu. You have to choose from 3 starters, 3 main dishes and 3 deserts. My wife had as starter ox heart, which was amazing! They also have some daily specials, if you want to upgrade your... More

We came here as a small group of friends and had a great evening. The service was very friendly and knowledgeable, and the food tasted very good. The menu changes every 2 weeks and uses seasonal and local ingredients - and you can really notice that when you eat here! Great evening all around.
