If you are a friend of mediterranian cuisine Crecian is worth visiting. Kleftiko is my personal favourite. The size of portions are allmost huge. You can easily taste pure flavours straight from Creece. You can get better crecian food in Oulu than in Creece.

We had Cyprus meze (17 course meal) with wine. Everything tasted delicious and yes, even better than what I have had in Greece at some places, or at least just as good. The Greek owner of this restaurant has truly earned the Trip Advisor recommendations.

I like this place for lunch. Service is quick and the Greek salad with slow cooked lamb is excellent. Coffee is included in the lunch. The place can be crowded, it's not a best kept secret...

This restaurant is a short walk out of Oulu city centre, but worth a visit. I am not a Greek food specialist, but the food we had fulfilled everything I like: large portion, tasty, well prepared, and for a very reasonable price (in fact the cheapest out of all the restaurants in a one week visit). Service was fast, even... More

I'm not a very culinaristic person and therefore I usually put more value on good atmosphere than good food. But this place is exceptional. The food in this restaurant is so tasty that it really melts in my mouth! + the atmosphere is really good. Definitely worth visiting!

Food is ok, steak and pork suvlaki were very good. Potatoes were not that good especially the ones with the garlic dressing. Tzaziki however and the pita bread were excellent!

If you want a 100 % foolproof lunch or dinner experience and excellent food, choose Crecian. Excellent Greek food, well seasoned, fast service, reasonable prices and huge portions. Lots of free parking places. This restaurant is one my favourite ones in Oulu!

I had nice calamari as a starter and the dish was great! For the main I had grilled lamb seasoned in spicy jogurt and salad - it was excellent. As for desert - greek sundae was ok. The recommendations for drinks were poor as the drinks did not go well with the food. :( Service in general was polite but... More

We saw the great reviews on TA and our visit was absolute must. Decor looked good and service was really friendly. Menu was not too big which is always promising. I ordered lamb souvlaki and my wife had the chicken souvlaki while our kid ate the Zeus' minced meat steaks. To our surprise all the potatoes were premade: house special... More
