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.

Sunday evening was nice and quite yet there was enough business to keep the staff busy. Specially fish was good we tested both Muikut and Rautu

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.

Excellent service and very good food. Ate soup and it was really delicious. One of our friends came after nine and the staff just said that they´ll be there as long as needed. Exceptionally good service.

This restaurant is located in a log-building, which makes a great atmosphere complemented with a local menu of Finnish food. Had a very enjoyable meal for a reasonable price. The restaurant is a short walk over the pedestrian bridge from the small island that has the library and theatre.

Enjoyable food from The north. Here you can order some reindeer and perhaps get a taste of rössypottu. The service is friendly. Enjoyable, old wooden building.
