Five stars all the way through. It is seldom that a four course menu keeps the same high quality all the way through, but Kuu dies. We tried two different four course menues and both of the were excellent. The service is friendly and spot...on too. Highly recommended.More

What a delightful time and meal in a truly Finnish restaurant. Our servers were delightful and knowledgeable on pairings and dishes. We were truly blessed with a great evening. Every aspect from the salmon bisque soup, the moose and the desserts was outstanding. Get a...great taste of Helsinki!More

The smoked salmon soup was amazing and the reindeer was so tender that you could probably eat it even if you had no teeth ;-) The house cocktail was also very fresh and tasty. Stop whatever you are doing and book a table there !

Had a very nice dinner here and ate the summer menu. Best pork cheeks I ever had. :) Staff was friendly and attentive.

Absolutely delicious food, very friendly staff (especially Hannu who was not only fluent in English but also German) and a very nice interior and overall atmosphere - highly recommended! (they also catered for special requests like vegan options and were very child friendly - even...if it’s a more upscale restaurant where we were the only family with a kid)More

I had a 4 course Helsinki-menu and it included starter, main course, cheese and dessert. The starter was really good reindeer tartar, main course was pan fried trout; again really good. The cheese and dessert were good, but the dark chocolate cake was a bit...too rich for my taste. All in all there was some surprising tastes in the menu and I liked that. I must also recommend the sea-buckthorn glogg; it's a nice alternative to a regular glogg. The staff was friendly and helpful and the restaurant itself was cozy and nice.More

This restaurant serves fresh Finnish food a la carte and on menus. The environment is basic nothing special. The food is excellent with some creativity but without craziness, you can identify all components. Prices are correct and service is attentive.

Mixed experience. Some of the food was very good, but some was not at all. And after trying arctic charr several times (in other places as well) I now have to admit that I do not like it. Service here was very professional and friendly....Restaurant recommends making reservations for larger groups, which we had done. I don’t think I’ll return.More

This is a busy and not large restaurant so wise to book, especially for evenings and weekends ..I booked on line the day before for a Friday evening OK. The tables are pretty close together so be prepared for that ..American guy next to me...when I first arrived on his phone swearing..albeit quietly at someone (even with him using earpiece) meant you heard absolutely everything..luckily he left soon after. The service for me was functional rather than friendly and welcoming..not many smiles..they are obviously very busy?. There are some good set menus ..most expensive at time of review €55..which I felt was good value for quality of food and set against local prices plus a la carte options. Traditional Salmon Soup very good, full of flavour. For me the Reindeer fillet was the highlight...beautifully tender and tasty in a berry sauce. The only not so great dish was the local goat cheese with jam..a tiny slither of cheese with......a jam was a little underwhelming after the great first two courses. Panna cotta with pomegranate ice cream was a very good ending. Good selection of aperitifs and wine by the glass as well as an extensive wine list. So overall a nice place for a good quality and enjoyable meal all nicely presented.More

On a recent trip to Helsinki, I diuked into this fine establishment prior to a concert nearby in TheMusic Center. I thought it might be good-but no- it was outstanding. Ordering al la carte, most everything offered from the 58 euro Champagne Menu (if taken,...I might never have made it to the concert-4 glasses of champagne one to accompany each course!) to all items a la carte appealed. Selecting an all vegaterian menu, the starter was excellent, but the main dish, a potato and wide ranging mushroom combination in a tasty sauce, was sublime. Btw, the bread was to die for. The dessert, a panacotta in champagne sauce, all adult, was unlike any dessert I had before and since. The wine suggested by my waiter, (bt the glass- with a tase offered befpore the pour) was an exceptional Pinto Noir from Alsace- a rare find for me. Service truly profesisonal,atmosphere relaxing, unstuffy, this ravintola rocks.More
