A very pleasant experience

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... read more

When In Oulu, don't miss a visit to this old timber storehouse in Pikisaari, where you can enjoy a beautiful summer terrace or a cosy atmosphere inside. Food is typical finnish (salmon, vendace, reindeer...) and well prepared. Prices are a little on the high side but you won't regret the experience.

Not the finest or most fancy restaurant around the Oulu, but absolutely worth of visit if and when you are looking something traditional local. Awesome beautiful location to walk around a bit.

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

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.

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.
