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.

The best wine bar in town! Muru wine bar, near the restaurant! We often come here with my friend for a class of wine or champage. They also sell super delicious risotto, charcuterie & other tapas food. Love it! Cozy athmosphere.

Went for dinner with our team and had a three course meal with a bottle of wine. It was an amazing experience as the food is great and the ambiance of the place is so relaxing.

We had a 4-course meal with wines. The main course was reindeer which was very good, and for dessert, we had good olive oil ice cream. The food portions and wine servings were small. The service was quite slow, taking well over 2 hours.

Very pleasant and calm restaurant. We each had the four course menu. No choice on what the dishes were, but all were excellent and very tasty certainly enough to be enjoyed. The wine selection was also fabulous, be it at the local price! Well worth...a visit and ended our stay in Helsinki on a high.More

We really enjoyed Muru’s menu and wine recommendations. Service was top-class and very friendly. Would definitely try their risottos - the one with basil and tomatos was delicious! Restaurant atmosphere is very nice and cozy.

Chose with my spouse five course Day’s menu with recommended matched wines. Awesome experience. Wines truly were able to synergize with the dishes. Service was very friendly, professonal, and smooth despite the restaurant was full with guests. Warmly recommend this restaurant.

We visited Muru on a recent trip to Helsinki and were delighted. The food was divine - excellent value for money in a city not known for being cheap. The wine pairings were also excellent. The service was attentive and friendly, in addition to effortlessly...switching between Finnish and English at each table. There was both a casualness and a professionalism at the same time, throughout. Can’t wait to visit again!More

We have a theory that a really good restaurant puts a smile on your face. Muru definitely managed to do that. The food was delicious from beginning to end and service was friendly and efficient. We’ll be back.

Seating is tight but presentation and service were top notch. We chose the food of the day, never know what it is until you arrive, but they also have staples you can order. We also ordered the wine selection they pare with the food. Food...and wine all perfectly matched made for a repast to remember. Recommend.More

We do not say this lightly, but our meal at Muru was one of the best restaurant experiences of our lives (and we have had many). You will need a reservation. Tasting menu with wine pairings was only $125 per person and that was a...huge bargain. The blackened whitefish was superb. The cheese course was surprisingly delightful as were the somewhat unusual wine choices. I think everyone in the place was Finnish except for us. We will be back for sure the next time we are in Helsinki.More

I took my guest from Spain there for a glass of wine and maybe something to eat. The wine list did not look good and glasses smelled horribly eggy. We decided to skip the food since the staff was really arrogant. I couldn't even bring...the water glass close to me since it had a disgusting smell. I have been there in the past for a couple of times, always invited by someone else. As I remember the same problem with the smelly dishes has been my biggest issue there. I am sure I would not be going there by choice any time soon. In my opinion when you pay a good price for a glass of wine, at list you should be able to drink it.More
