If you are looking for a nice place that has excellent service, this is the best place in Oulu. The owners know what they are doing, know their drinks and food. The restaurant itself is cozy and located in a traditional wood building.

Beautiful, old building where food is at least partly from Finnish cuisine. Food is delicious and carefully prepared and service is warm and professional. Definitely worth visiting!

The scampi tails were cooked spot on with a lovely crunch, the Pernod sauce not overpowering and just a light perfume. The perfectly medium rare rack of... More

Want to meet with locals, eat typical Finnish/ Scandinavian food in real and fair atmosphere yet enjoy a fine dining quality in serving and ingredients? This restaurant is up to standard by all means. Step into an old wooden boat house type of building and climb upstairs in narrow staircase lit by candels. Ancient wooden walls, paper lanterns, white table... More
