It is the third time in the restaurant over 6 years period. Each time I visit Oulu it is a pleasure to dine at this restaurant. The traditional dishes are filled with taste and the wine selection is also good. A bit of warning though, some courses can be very heavy, better eat early in the evening.

I had a three-course meal with paired wines and it was phenomenal. Authentic Nordic flavors served in immaculate manner. One of the best restaurant experiences of my life.

This is a fine dining restaurant, so prepare to pay a bit more. Food on the other hand is excellent like the service.

I regularly visit Uleaborg - dining there is always an experience, and I know I'm in for a treat when I go there. I find their seasonal, 4-course menu to be of fantastic value for money. If you are a traveller looking to try food made with local ingredients, or in search of a restaurant for a special occasion, look... More

Ambience, service, location, attitude and great food. I truly enjoyed the dinner, starter was a white fish tartar and main course reindeer. Truly fantastic.

We were there for a business dinner, it was quite busy and only one waitress serving about 10 tables. Service was friendly but slow, but it was clear for us why. Food was on a very high level, prices are average and not too high. Try the goat cheese as a starter and some fresh fish. We come back next... More

Fantastic atmosphere in this well preserved old building from 1881, then used as a storage for sugar etc. The staff is knowledgable and friendly, we felt very welcome and well taken care of. The food was also delicious. We tried a 4-course meal starting with herring, then long cooked pig cheek before continuing with wild duck captured in Finland and... More
