We were keen to have some local food and found Sokeri-Jussin kievari a great place to sample typical Finnish home style cooked food. This beautiful old log house style building was a short walk from the Oulu Market Square. The atmosphere was cosy and the service was great. Food was hearty, no nonsense old fashioned cooking.

This restaurant was amazing! The atmosphere, the location, the staff and the food. I recommend it to everyone going to Oulu, whether for a business meal, or a leisure time. There are a lot of local delicacies to taste, even vegetarian dishes. The waitress was remarkable; always checking if everything was ok, without insisting on drinks, or being annoying. The... More

One of the best in oulu. Best if you love home styled and quite heavy food. Athmosphere is unique. Never left home with hunger.

This restaurant has very tasty dishes, like the reindeer with local Finnish berries. It also has good red wine to drink and you can drink it in the candlelight atmosphere of the restaurant.

We had a nice quiet mid-Sunday meal at this place. Everything we ordered was fantastic - especially the sauteed reindeer and the reindeer soup. Service friendly and efficient.

Sokeri-Jussi is one of my favourite restaurants in Oulu. It's located in an old wooden barn, on a small island, a short walk from the library and market place. The food is traditional, with a wide selection of Finnish fare, all excellently prepared. Here you can taste a great reindeer and mushroom soup, elk meatballs or sautéed reindeer. It's also... More

Authentic setting, authentic food (salmon, rendeer,..). The plates are rather basic, but ggo quality. I think the setting is great in summer time when one can also sit outside

Great location, overlooking the river and downtown Oulu. Food was great, service was great. Price was reasonable (high for me but reasonable for a fancy Finnish restaurant). I had the lohi (raw salmon roulettes) - melt in the mouth tender; awesome wild mushroom sauce.

Thank bingoseattle
