Restaurant Muru in Helsinki is one the most acclaimed wine restaurants in Finland and has received several prizes and awards for its wine program, for example ”Best of Award Excellence” by Wine Spectator. Muru opened in 2010, and the food philosophy is to pick the best seasonal ingredients and turn them into high-end bistro dishes that you can either enjoy as a four-course meal or à la carte. In the small bar you’re always welcome to drop in for a glass of wine and something to eat, but remember that it’s a well-known spot for wine lovers, so it might be crowded.
Muru Wine List
The well-curated wine list combines old-school classics with contemporary wine from trendy producers. With over 500 different wines on the list, there’s easy to find something that makes you thirsty. The list is based heavily on Western Europe, especially France, but also contains smaller producers from Eastern Europe as well. Around 100 wines are served by the glass, and in the cellar, you can find wines dating back all the way to the 1940s.
