Fast, friendly, homely and not too expensive. I had fried Baltic herring - full points! So go and try it.

Good cooking, not too complicated, kind of basic, yet modern food. You can rely on the fresness of the rawmaterial. Lunch menu is worth trying.

Our family, two adults and three children between 12 and 7, visited Kuu a Saturday evening and we were extremely happy with the food, service and the atmosphere! It is much more a cozy place than fancy, and that suited us very well. The food was really delicious, and we can't remember when we have this good food last time.... More

Kuu (the Moon) was established 1966 and yet this was my first time in there. They haven't kept much noise about themselves and I guess they don't have to because the place was quite full and I can understand why; Very good food in a nice looking place.

Perfect combination of 4 dishes. Perfect vegetable soup, wonderful whitefish as a main course, delicious cheese and amazing dessert- liquorice ice cream with nordic berry jam. Recommended!

What we were most surprised in this restaurant was the service, there was an older lady staff. She reluctantly took us to the seat. Though there were a lot of vacant seats, our seat was the worst one. As someone was writing the same thing, she was obviously unkind to us. We were the only Japanese and she was so... More

As we entered the restaurant a loud explosion rocked the building and made the winows vibrate. The result of construction work next doou. No harm caused! I had a 4 course meal based on reindeer cooked to perfection

Fresh, seasonal, traditional Finnish food with a modern twist. Food was tasteful yet maybe somewhat safe. Staff was wonderful and professional. Atmosphere was warm. The cloudberry licorice desert was amazing!
