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

This is rapidly becoming my favorite restaurant in Oulu. The food is exquisite the service is good and the value for money is extraordinary. They have menu only servings, but it doesn't matter as all I have eaten here has been equally good. the once a month to go place for me. If you are looking for a place to... More

We visited this restaurant now during the time of "Northern Arctic Flavours" weeks here in Oulu and this restaurant was only serving food under that theme. The whole week and menus concentrate on really local ingredients. We had the longest, five course dinner (shorter ones just miss couple of courses in the full one) with pre-selected wine package, which consisted... More

If you are looking for good fine dining, Hugo is the place where to go in Oulu. Their French/Scandinavian approach to food is delicious, service is great and the restaurant is stylish. You can spend a small fortune in here if you want but you can also get a reasonably priced alternative if that's what you're looking for.

This is another excellent Oulu restaurant - they do love their food here. Local ingredients and seasonal food wherever possible, Hugo combines a contemporary feel with some classic Finnish elements. It's not the best wine list in town but perfectly okay and overall not a bad price in what is, of course, a pricey country.

We ate the weekend 4 course menu. We started with a lobster soup, with herbs and nut oil. Smooth. The second course was goose lever on spicy bread with a some berry based jam. We could have ordered a dozen more. The main course was long stewed scandinavian elk on root puree, carrots and broccoli. Excellent and the portion was... More
