A must-visit in Oulu

My wife and I had again dinner at Uleåborg ran by Petri and Tuulikki during our visit to Oulu. We return basically every time when we visit Oulu, for this is the best quality restaurant in town. We've tried pretty much all of them worth mentioning. The menus are ambitious, ingredients are high... read more

I went to Uleåborg 1881 on a Tuesday evening with my wife. The restaurant is situated right next to the Gulf of Bothnia, on the wharf of the Oulu market square. It is a lively area during daytime, and there are young people sitting on the waterfront in the evening, enjoying their picnic wine or beer. The restaurant itself is... More

The food is great, the service is great, the view is great. This is close to be the best food experience you can have in the northern Scandinavia. The wine list is very good. You can sit in the traditional house with a sense of history or on the picturesque terrace. The scene can be defined fine-dining, though the price/quality... More

We came in the place on a Thursday night with a colleague, without a reservation. We were immediately accomodated in a cozy corner of the restaurant, and the personnel started to look after us with great kindness and attention to details. Our food was excellent, I strongly recommend the menu with reindeer in it as it tastes wonderful. Wine selection... More

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!
