No reservation, so came here early. I have been turned away before because the restaurant was fully booked. Had a scallop appetizer and catch of the day. Both were excellent. Great wine selection. Very comfortable restaurant. Wait staff is professional - just the right amount of attention. No problem for two English speakers - menu in Finnish and English. Wish... More

Had a dinner and goose beef. I have to say that eventhough I still think this is the best restaurant in town, this time the main course was not a good one...a bit gummy and too red...they should ask how the customer want to have the beef cooked. But as normally, the service is excellent and the lingonberry desert was... More

Three of us at at Ravintola Uleaborg earlier this week and I can honestly say this is one of he best meals I have ever eaten. The sweetbread cannelloni starter was amazing, I have never had anything like it. The reindeer was the best I have eaten and the wine selection was fantastic. I can definitely recommend this place.

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! 👍🏻
