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.

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.

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.

Dropped by this restaurant around end of lunch time and asked for a very specific dish because of my long list of allergies. They were very happy to serve with smile on their face and kindness in their voice to figure out what I could have from their kitchen. They made a personally cooked dish for me for a price of the normal lunch which was quite amazing honestly. Hardly ever do I come across a restaurant with such attitude towards someone’s well restricted diet. Will visit again!

Been here several times in the past, as I mostly eat fish and vegetarian food. Also I like to steer clear of franchise business, especially the nearby ABC-chain, which has finished off all real gas stations around Finland and like to support smaller and local restaurants with fresh ingredients. I’m disappointed the way things been going on at Vihiluodon Kala lately. The quality of the food and service varies too much. Below listed couple of incidents: - I was here at the end of lunch time last year. Only me and one other traveller. The other traveller finished his meal 5 minutes past lunch time, he asked is the coffee included. Waitress said, sorry it’s past lunch time and you have to pay. The guy said nothing and walked out. I’m sure he’s not coming back. Not very good thinking as the coffee goes down the drain anyway as there was nobody else there. - again another lunch time, took the salmon soup as always. Two pots of milk and potatoes, barely any fish. After eating on my way out I commented this, and the answer was ”You should have said something”. - again lunch time, took the salmon soup as takeaway. The box was filled in the kitchen somewhere. In the car I already smelled something funky. At home opened the box and it was clear something’s not right. Tried one spoon, tasted real bad and the rest went to trash. Fish was probably off. Now somebody would ask why I go there. That’s because it was good in the beginning, but the quality of the food has gone down and don’t justify the high prices. You get this cheap-o impression that the restaurant’s trying to cut costs wherever they can. For instance, how is it possible that the Fish Plate on lunch service is way more expensive than one of them solo (you get the same amount of fish but only one kind)? Or the thing with the coffee? The one thing you want in a restaurant is not to have this cheap-o impression.

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.

After this lunch I will never visit neighbouring mass eatery if this restaurant is open. Good value for money.

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

5/5 full on. Big portion sizes, wonderful traditional tastes, reasonsble prices, and ABSOLUTELY kind service! They also made gluten-free special portions, so we were very happy :)

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.

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.

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.
