Having tried almost every restaurant in Oulu during my business travels there, I always return to Uleaborg. The menu changes with seasons, the food is always prepared impeccably and the service is personal and outstanding. Highly recommended! 👍🏻

Uleåborg (Swedish for Oulu) is one of my favourite restaurants in Oulu. The food is of high quality and it's always difficult to choose between the attractive dishes.

Myb1st visit to restaurant. From outside, it looks old traditional, red painted loghouse. Relatively small, I thought first. Dining is in upstairs and is more spacious than it looks from outside. Interior is nice - traditional log house with peaceful, harmonic colours. Menu is relatively short, which tells me that what they prepare, they prepare with passion. We tried arctic... More

If you are looking good food, peaceful place and 5star service in Oulu, this is definitely place to go! Menu is not traditional one, more like experimental mixture of local materials and international cuisine. Very delicious! Good wine selection and staff knows what to recomend if you are unsure.
