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

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
