I was looking for something Finish and local, this is THE place. Fantastic building and I was treated in a very kind way. Ended up eating reindet meat and it was delicious. Why 4 stars? I found a piece of bone in my food :(

Great lappish home-style food. Many delightful dishes made from local produce. The menu may change depending on the season and availability of the products. This is a great place to go for dinner with friends or business associates. The restaurant is located in an absolutely stunning old building, with some great history, which is explained on the back of the... More

Food was excellent. Tried all the local Finnish specialties including reindeer, the tar shooters and local beers. Service also very friendly. Only down side - a bit expensive, but otherwise highly recommended.

Nice old stylish restaurant near Oulu city centre. Place was quite busy, even in middle of the week. It was late afternoon, so we were happy to see that this place has customers. Place is popular with locals, menu is not big, but food is tasty and you can taste the finnish foods. We took both stakes and there were... More

Sokeri-Jussin kievari is a traditional wooden house made of logs. It has served in old days as a storehouse for sugar. It has been changed into a round-the-year restaurant which is serving very tasty Finnish and Northern Fnnish food (e.g. salmon, white-fish, reindeer etc.). It has a good selection of vegetarian stuff but also meat for heavy users. A good... More

Value for money, I'll say. Large portions and large wine glasses. The Arctic Char was good. My wife was dissapointed, she chose a sort of risotto.

We had a dinner at Sokeri-Jussin kievari that is located in a beautiful, rustic, traditional wooden house near Oulu centre. Here you both get a nice ambience and tasty food. My starter smoked reindeer-lorchel (korvasieni) soup was divine. And the main course, reindeer as well, was good too. The service was really attentive and impeccable. The only minus would be...
