“Excellent place to experience good old finnish atmosphere, and get very good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2011

This restaurant is not the most easy to find, but is truly worth while to look. We had a good meal with fantastic atmosphere with candles. The stuff is fun and truly made our day. Wise people make reservations for evening time cos it's popular restaurant, especially near x-mas.

“Overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2011

Not much to say about this place. Many locals seem to value it (I guess partly due to its nice location) but I wouldn't rank it too high in terms of food quality or value for money.

They use consistently too much salt which is always a bad sign for a restaurant (the first thing that occurs to mind is what are they hiding :) and the service tends to be slow -- especially when the place is packed.

“Bad, rude service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2009

Waitresses in this place do not greet you, they leave you unnoticed and the general atmosphere is rather rude. I cannot say anything about the food since me and my guests decided to have dinner somewhere else after waiting and watching several waitresses pass us by in an almost completely empty restaurant.

My favourite in Oulu. Traditional North-Finnish plates with a modern twist. Also the children loved the place and the food.
