Lonely Planet review
An Oulu classic, this timbered inn on Pikisaari was once a sugar warehouse and has outdoor tables that have good views of the centre. Although the renovated interior has lost a bit of the original character, it’s still an attractive spot to eat, with no-frills traditional dishes, including reindeer, and a selection of much more upmarket plates. It’s also a nice place to go for a few beers away from the bustle of the city but just a few steps from it.
