Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My partner and I spent our final night in Helsinki at this great restaurant not far from the centre of town. The staff were really friendly and the homemade bread for our table was delicious. I had the venison (called 'deer' on the menu) but...I recommend the coffee mousse for dessert.More

Saturday Evening in Helsinki I was looking for a restaurant to book for the night but they were all booked! I found this Restaurant on TripAdvisor as one of the top restaurants in the town! I celled them but the lady told me they were...full all night but she suggested me to call in an hour to see if they would have any cancellation! I called them after 45 minutes and the lady told me we could go there in 30-45 minutes! The restaurant is great and the staff are so polite and kind! The gentleman who served us, explained the menu with patience and suggested us a few options based on our tastes ! I wanted to try a real Finnish food so I chose liver and mash potatoes with raspberries sauce and my partner chose the fish of the day which was incredible! They have a full menu of wine as well which helps you to pair your food very well with your drink! I really loved this restaurant and I highly recommended this place! Also, I really want to thank again the lady who gave us the chance to have this beautiful experience!More

I fined alone one evening and was extremely happy with my meal. I chose the Kuu set menu at €59: Traditional smoked salmon soup Reindeer fillet with celeriac puree, mushrooms and blackcurrant sauce Cheese with house jam Dark chocolate cake with passion fruit and passion...sorbet It was good very good food; interesting, well cooked and nicely presented. I opted for the wine pairing as well, the wines were each very well suited to the dish. The service was excellent; efficient, friendly and the waiters took a little time to chat as well. Over all, extremely pleasant meal and I’d certainly go again.More

Hotel is located opposite the Crowne Plaza Hotel. It is recommended to book. We could not get a confirmed reservation but ate outside on a warm evening. There is a choice of a number of set menus or an A La Carte Menu. Great Local...Seasonal food. Presentation can't be faulted. Staff were attentive and happy to explain dishes. Had a great meal and would highly recommend.More

As a long term fan of Restaurant Kuu, it delights me to find my favourite dishes on the menu while also being offered something new. This time the new delight was a picture perfect rhubarb dessert. The ingredients were, as always, fresh and seasonal, wine...list ( Kuu imports their own) offered something new to discover, and the service could not have been friendlier. Thank you, the Kuu crew for another lovely evening!More

We loved the ambiance and the food, but it took so long and the service was very nice but I think a bit overwhelmed. We started dinner at 8 pm and only got it after asking various times, around 11pm

Went with the Kuu menu, which brings the smoked salmon soup, reindeer fillet, cheese and dessert @59€, quite a lot, without bread or any amuse-bouche. But especially the reindeer was excellent quality, preparation and taste. We could even dine outside on a mild evening.

Cozy restaurant not in the middle of the city center -> reason for fair prices? The so called sommelier was ok but not really good into wines. Menue was nice not over the top. In total. Good restaurant

Of the three fine dining restaurants we experienced in Helsinki, I would rate this one third behind Aito and Baskeri & Basso, which is just my way of saying that if you can only do one or two make it the others in that order...... but Kuu still gets 5 out of 5 for both food and service. It just lacks a bit in ambiance compared to the other two and at around 100 euros per person for 3 courses with paired wines felt slightly over-priced in comparision ... especially to Aito which was the best and least expensive (though not by much) of the three. Still, it was excellent and I both recommend it and would happily go back.More

This is a good restaurant where we were looked after very well indeed. We each had the smoked salmon soup to start followed by the reindeer and the lambkin meatballs, finishing off with rhubarb crumble and the pannacotta. It was a very good meal. Not...stupidly fine dining but very well executed and presented all the same. I doubt you could find better examples of these local dishes elsewhere in Helsinki.More

A very nice and small restaurant. A relaxed atmosphere, very nice and professional staff and excellent food. As this is very popular among the locals, I recommend to book your table in advance. Everything went really smoothly, so a strong recommendation for visiting Kuu.

Restaurant Kuu is a rather traditional restaurant - well-known for the quality of its food. They offer a rather extensive menu, which includes several uncommon Finnish courses - very many of those still with some twist. This variety means that you have an opportunity to...create numerous combinations. Our group chose three different starters, three main courses and two desserts. We were all very satisfied with the food. Also the recommended wines paired very well. Last but not the least - the bill was rather wallet-friendly. The interiors are rather simplified in style.More

We ate dinner here one evening during a recent stay in Helsinki. The food was really nice and felt very traditional. All the dishes were free of lactose and they were extremely accommodating for my coeliac wife. The restaurant was cosy and the service was...friendly and efficient. Reasonably priced. All in all, a really solid dinner!More
