If nothing striking in the main menu, go for the pepper steak. It is just the best in town. And so is the tartar!

My husband took me to this restaurant for the first time and I was almost angry that we had not been there before. Portions are very generous, food, drinks and wines reasonably priced. Three course meal 40-50€, wines approx 10€/ glass. For starters I had tartar which was very good. My husband took cold smoked pike which was absolutely amazingly... More

Initially, we were a bit turned off, because when we showed up at Kuurna about 20 min before our reservation, the waiter, who BTW was not very friendly, told us to leave and come back in 20 minutes. This was a bit weird as the place had just cleared out and they were just clearing tables. It was about -5... More

I found this place on the internet looking for some good restaurants in Helsinki. I was attracted by the menu, and I decided to give it a shot. Although not far away from the central area, Kuurna might be not very easy to find; at least it was not for me, because once I arrived on the street from its... More

I have enjoyed Kuurna for years, twice or three times we had our company's christmas dinner there. Once the old folks arranged 70 birthday dinner there. I think that says it all? Very good food for descend price. We had the tartar as a starter and reindeer for main. By the way it has The best pepper steak in town.

Beforehand the menu didn't look exactly interesting, but afterwards, what a great evening! Charming place, smooth service, excellent food, and the portions were just perfect size. Location is a bit hidden, not likely to randomly walk by. Doesn't make any difference though. Top recommendation. I see this place sold out for nice office pre-Christmas parties.

Kuurna is tucked away in a residential area near Helsinki centre. The place can be described as "shabby chic". It is small (reservations necessary) and intimate, somewhat noisy but warm and welcoming. The concept is simple: Three entrees, three main dishes and three desserts to choose from. Basically Fish-meat-veggie. We had vendace roe (the orange caviar from a small herringrelated... More

The ambience is excellent . A small but very well cooked and presented menu. I visited it twice during a short stay as the food was so well cooked . I can recommend it without hesitation.

Kuurna has been my favourite for years in the centre of Helsinki. This time it was better then ever. Three-course menu was brilliant, portions fresh and genuine, unpretentious. The interior is also warm and welcoming, not one of those generic white-on-white restaurants.
