Best food in Oulu, period.

We discovered Hugo about 4 years ago, and it has become our go-to place for fine dining in Oulu (around 20 visits over this periods, both for dinner and lunch). The chef makes excellent use of local and seasonal products, and the service is impeccable. It is also quite affordable compared to other... read more

It's great to see that there this kind of fine dining restaurants in outside of Helsinki too. Great location near City Centre and right next to busy Market Place. Stylish from outside and inside too, with over the top friendly and informative service. They serve different kind of menus and we decided to take 5 course "Menu Hugo" for 60€... More

After the average dining experience in KingCrab House in Levi, we decided to place a visit to Restaurant Hugo, which got my top ratings for their summer lunch menu last summer. We chose the four course weekend menu with wine plus extra cheese course with port wine. That was an excellent choice. A well balanced marriage of food and wine.... More

This is a fine-dine restaurant that is based on Scandinavian cuisine. In one dish we had cooked lichen and it was amazing! This restaurant is quite pricy for Oulu standards, but definitely worth visiting.

We were in this place with bigger audience with our colleagues. Service was on a quite ok level. Food came at the same time to everyone, good sign. Food was good and delicious but some people might think that it is only stripes and lines on the plate. Wouldn't go here with everyone but special occasions yes.

Fresh local ingredients, nice layout, excellent food, good wine hot summer terrace - nothing missing. I had not visited Hugo for a long time, but I'm glad that I decided book a table on a hot summer evening. We chose the "Summer menu" with the recommended wines. Absolutely great! The food was excellent and the wines matched the food perfectly.... More

I was here for a business meal in a private room, so I may have received somewhat more than the usual service. The restaurant is located near the harbor, less than a block from the Radisson or the Scandic hotel. We all had the €60 five course meal, with different wine with each course. Each course was small, delivered at... More

I think this is probably the best restaurant in Oulu and possibly one of the best in the whole of Finland. The food is delicious, the service very good, and it isn't expensive.

Food: Presentaion and taste is as it should be in an establishment like this. Atmosphere: No other place in Oulu can match Service: Charming and professional as always This place is like one of the few oasis in the desert of Oulu. Very sad Local Finns are unable of appreciate this place.

There is no doubt that which restaurant is the best in town. They should get two Michelin stars for food and service and a third one for moderate pricing. You pay double for similar restaurant experience in Helsinki. We have experienced Hugo for lunch, meeting and romantic dinners and every single time it´s been a top score. It is sad... More
