The best in Oulu is still the best. Exclusive service with a subtle, old ambience. Service was excellent with very nice "off the list" wine selections. Especially good was the ravck of reindeer roasted to perfection. Definitely worth a detour.

Our family gathering of eleven people to celebrate our father's 80th anniversary over dinner was so nice. The food was excellent, from starters to desserts, especially the main couses reindeer filet and pike-perch received a lot of pleased comments. The wine recommendations also matched the food very nicely leaving a really good taste for everybody. The evening was crowned with... More

It was a lovely meal, but it wasn't too exciting. The quality was good, and the cooking was good, but there wasn't much of a 'wow' factor. Staff and service however was amazing.

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. I really like the whitefish ceviche and the guinea fowl. There is also a great selection of wines (including very good reasonably priced options) and the staff provides excellent advice. Service is... More

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
