Puistola indeed is one the best places to eat in Oulu. Nice, discreet and sophisticated atmosphere and the food is delicious. There are only a few restaurants in Oulu where you could imagine taking your guest, and Puistola is definitely one of them!

The basement has a really nice (fine)dining restaurant. The personnel is very friendly. The first floor serves lunch and also has a bistro. The building is charming and old, so you can also enjoy the atmosphere.

Puistola is one of the best places in Oulu for a good lunch. Sophisticated atmosphere and nice staff. Food is also great. Also good for a fine dining dinner although you can find places with more personality in Oulu.

Very spacious restaurant, made for fine dining. We ate lunch, even we had to wait, we were able to see how the cook was busy whole time. It is easier to wait when you see that you meal is about to be ready soon.

We were walking around looking for somewhere to eat and found this place. It was quite and we were a little worried but menu looking good. The Staffs was friendly and meal was excellent. All fresh and really nice. Wasn't the cheapest but worth the money. Will go here again when I visit again.

Honestly, this is the best restaurant of Oulu. There is a good atmosphere and a very kind staff with plenty of humor and here for us. The food is really tasty and not more expensive than other restaurant in town. Everything is here to envoy your lunch or dinner time. Feel free to go there without any doubts!!

Food: Just ok kind of bland Taste: Nothing special Atmosphere: Excellent cannot be better. Location is excellent. Service: Basic professional. How do I feel: The food does not have the charm that it deserves? Indeed with that charm and flavor this is a serious contender to be one of the best in Oulu. When I go to a restaurant I... More

I like the cafe and having a lunch in restaurant. A la carte restaurant is too fine and expensive for my taste.
