A wonderful location in an old warehouse on the sea/river front in a modern part of Oulu - you can dine indoors or outside and it was a fabulous sunset the evening we visited! A fantastic meal, beautifully presented and served - tastes were excellent. Both had reindeer carpaccio which was mouth-watering, then one fish and one beef - both... More

By far the best fine dining restaurant in Oulu. The owners are a delightful couple who also run a wine bar (Vox) in the city centre.

This restaurant is located by the sea and marketplace in an old log house. Food is fine dining, slightly above mid-price. Generally the quality of food is very good, fresh ingredients are being used and service is excellent. During my last visit with a group of twelve person, we unfortunately got really salty main course.

I have visited this restaurant many times, and it is still the best of Oulu. Great service, excellent knowledge of wines and great atmosphere.

During a winter road trip to Northen Finland with my daughter, we were looking for somewhere special to dine for our last night in Oulu. I'd often looked at Uleaborg 1881 on my visits to Oulu but was waiting for a sepacial occasion. We weren't disappointed! We chose from the a la carte menu which was well thought out and... More

And the waiter were very pleased to explain the historic side of it! The quality of the sercive is also fantastic, the food quality as well. The only things I would mention... More

Had there a full dinner. Food was made of local fish and meat which is always good. Selection of wines based on waiter's recommendations were superior. However there was a loud group of other customers at the table next to us and occasionally the waiter joined them (possibly knew them) which brought the atmosphere down a little.

This is a great place to taste Finnish cuisine in a classy environment. Probably among the most expensive place in town due to the high level of the service. The best reindeer tasted in Finland.
