Good food, great scenery, well worth a visit

Sokeri-Jussin Kievari serves food typical for Oulu region. Some might call it a bit retro or old-fashioned but there is no denying that the end result is tasty. When you combine that with a very nice location and great scenery, you come up with a restaurant definitely worth a visit when in Oulu.

Menu focused on local foods. Of our party of 4, 2 were vegetarians and were able to find tasty dishes. Meat and fish dishes were delicious. Service was slow due to a packed house. Excellent location across the bridge from the market and city center. Neat wooden structure with fun ambiance and nice outdoor seating area with beautiful water views... More

Nicely located, typical local atmosphere, typical old style dishes, but of average quality, but reasonably priced.

Even though the concept of this restaurant is good, they could be so much better. Food they prepare is following traditional Northern Finnish cuisine, but the way they make the food is poor. Food is tasteless (except deserts) and lacks ambition. I am a Finnish national myself and a food enthusiast. Finnish food can bevery delicious when it's done properly,... More

They serve traditional Finnish meals - both meat and fish dishes - with a vegetarian option. It is not cheap - but, hey - the meals and the atmosphere are great. The restaurant has a good location close to center of Oulu - it is within a walking distance from major hotels in the town.

Enjoyed eating here; great location, has a nice feel to the place inside. Food was great; nothing too fancy but good, honest food, good fish and some traditional Finnish dishes. Not cheap but I'd say reasonable value.

Great restaurant with vegetarian option. Only a little expensive.It is also an important part of Oulu's history and culture, plus it's in a great place.

It's been a while since I visited here, but then the food was good and carefully prepared. The building is another matter altogeher. An old wooden house, which gives the food some extra flavor perhaps.

Good service. Good recommendation of meal selection. We had the traditional grandma's dishes and main course (lamb is nice). A bit of the appetizers (reindeer tartar and soup) and desserts (kainuun kaiho & oulun kuutamo). Dim light, wooden floor, low ceiling, very warm and snuggling sitting in the restaurant.
