Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent fish restaurant. Sunday brunch was a bit too salty. It seems to me that specially in Sundays included dessert was only tiny piece of pie compared to pre covid times when dessert was really a part of brunch.

On our way back home oulu, this time we remembered to skip usual ABC lunce to visit again this great fish restaurant. In my last visit few years back I tried salmon soup and knew how good it would be, so this time I was...looking other lunch alternatives. While having hard times to finally decide as all seemed so appealing, clerk behind counter recommended "fish plate" that included little bit all dishes on the same plate with permission to get more only for 19€. Have to day it was heavenly delicious so my strong recommendation for this restaurant.More

Have eaten here many times and never been disappointed. Again was perfect - slowly flamed salmon with new potatoes. Clearly very popular too - a continuous queue (but moving fairly fast). Always very friendly service. This place is a highlight for lunch on the way...if passing by - like we do regularly - also always to take some fish home too. Highly and truly recommended! There is also a terrace to enjoy your meal outside. The accompanying wine was perfect. Reasonable prices. Quality more than matches the price. Always happy leaving here and looking forward to next visit.More

Quite tasty fish meals, this time a bit under the usual quality. Yesterday was mother's day specialties and rest were served today.

Just outside of the city is this unique fish restaurant, have lunch from the buffet for about 11 Euros, Excellent salmon or selection of other fish. The service is pleasant and the restaurant bright with a terrace for outside dining. They have a good selection...of fresh fish to buy and take home.More

The place serves fish food only and sells out fish and fish products. The food I had was tasty and there was enough to eat. I would have given a higher score, but the school diner like venue with plastic trays lowered it. The dining...area was also not too tidy - lots of breadcrums on the floor and tables.More

Usually one of the best restaurant experience in Oulu was this time disappointment. Fish plate was somehow less delicious and varieties of fishes were lowering. Hope to see the top quality we are used next time.

Got a tip to visit this place when driving by. Fish soup made from salmon is excellent choice. I saw many other customers taking the same. Really good choice to stop for a break.

If you dont want something for tourists but original home made style fish meals from local incredients, this is the place to come for lunch. Also some new tastes not only traditional "as you granny made it". Maybe someone is saying its too far from...Oulu, but when you find good local specialities in the middle of tourist centre.More

If you like fish this really worth visiting as the are many alternatives available. We took salmon soup and fish & chips. Salmon soup was served with dark bread and you are allowed to help yourself to get plate filled up as many times you...want to. Fish & chips was prepared separately by chef and brought into the table. Have to say that it was very good. Fresh fish products were available to take away.More
