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.

Exceptionally good food, and the service was really friendly, as well. We ate restaurant's own "Kuumenu" and vegetarian menu.

The house bread (black one) is extraordinary, the service is excellent (specially Timo, ask for him) the reindeer recipe is fabulous and the desserts are beautiful and tasty.

Food was delicious, healthy a real highlight of our weekend in Helsinki. The staff are very friendly and accommodated us even though I had booked a table for the wrong evening. Highly recommend this place if you are in Helsinki

I just don't know what to say - but this was amazing! One of the best dinners I had in my entire life. The reindeer was super soft - the wine was perfectly recommended by the waitress. Menu in general - absolutely fine. I would...definitly come back when visiting Finland again.More

This was an awesome restaurant - the best food we had in Scandinavia. We made reservations months in advance, though probably we didn't need to have been that compulsive. It's easy to get to by tram - a little bit outside the center of town....We both had the same thing because it sounded so good and weren't sorry at all - a 3 course meal of traditional smoked salmon soup (wonderful!); reindeer with celeriac puree, mushrooms and blackcurrant sauce (tender and really good); cheese with house jam; and blueberry pannacotta with marinated blueberries and lemon mousse. The server was friendly and encouraging and we lingered in the peaceful ambience for almost 2 hours. Highly recommend!!More

My husband and I had dinner here after a day of sightseeing and we found the place to be delightful - excellent service, cute atmosphere, a solid wine selection and, most importantly, great food! Reindeer for my husband and frittata for me - both delicious.

Very good restaurant. The reindeer steak was excellent and the carrot cake was also amazing. Serving was also perfect - I got the best recommendations. Will visit them again next time I am in Helsinki.

We picked Kuu based on the good reviews and menus based on traditional Finnish dishes. It was an excellent choice. It is a simple but intimate setting, not flash or pretentious but like a good local bistro. We went with a set menu (they have...four plus an alá carte), it was the “Kuu Menu” which has four courses for €59. It consisted of .. Traditional smoked salmon & potato soup…delicious, surprisingly light, loved it. Reindeer with celeriac puree, mushrooms and blackcurrant sauce.. a very generous serving, with perfectly cooked venison, my husband is still talking about it. Cheese with house jam…a Gorgonzola cheese, good. Sea buckthorn posset with orange mousse and marinated sea buckthorn berries…a tasty light dish to finish the evening, the sea-buckthorn berries pop with flavour. We also went with the wine pairing for an additional €39. Highly recommended.More

We choose this restaurant for a sunday dinner, based on tripAdvisor. Great choice. The servant spoke good french. Food was very good with local plates, and an interesting wine card. We enjoyed the very finnish atmosphere.

The salmon soup is very good, if simple as it should, and the smoke very gentle, as they smoke the fish on site. The blini is generous and overall very good with muikunmäti. The same goes for lamb meatballs. Of the desserts, go for the...very nice and fresh orange financier and perhaps avoid the chocolate cake, as the cake isn’t maybe to everyone’s taste, and not the best chocolate cake in town. The service is very good.More

We went to start the weekend to the Kuu. I took The Winter menu. Our waitres wasnt very helpful and she act like she didn't want to be there. Main course was nice size but most of the food (also first course) was a little...bit tasteless. How ever cheese with the wine was excellent and chocolate cake was also delicious.More

Even brought out dessert with a little candle to celebrate my birthday which...was a lovely touch. Thank you so much and hopefully we’ll be back again.More
