Excellent ! We drank as an appetitive Joiku Cocktail With Lingonberry Mousse And Vodka, Excellent! 🍸 The homemade bread was good but maybe the butter could have been with rock salt? SalmonRoll with three variations of salmon was excellent, especially the salmon mousse! Duck risotto with mushrooms and redcurrant was good, only the method of cooking misses the real fire,... More

Lounasruoka tosi hyvä, hinta-laatu todella todella hyvä. Palvelu ok, miljöö ok. Ruokailuun tosin saa varata tunnin vaikka kiirehtisitkin johtuen hitaasta pöytiintarjoilusta. For the price (around 10 euros with water) I doubt you find a better tasting food in a lunch place in Finland. Service is ok in Finnish standards but a bit slow (you need an hour: starters, main, coffee)... More

Our beef entrecotës with chimichurri were delicious, and the panzanella salad nicely complemented the experience. Service was prompt and knowledgeable. Definitely a place to visit again.

This is the place for a lunch. They serve good food, e.g. soup, salads, pasta. It is also open in the evening and it is a pleasant, small place for dinner. Quite busy in daytime.

I visited Oulu as part of a business trip and got to this place by using the TripAdvisor app. The menu is quite expensive but the main dish I ordered (duck I think) was very good. The service was also good and I enjoyed sitting in this small and nice restaurant. I also recommended it to my colleague.

Had lunch at Hella on our Easter holiday in Oulu. Excellent value for money. For 9,90€ you get soup as a starter, main course & coffee. No buffet - remarkably friendly table service instead. Food was very good. The coffee was not 'gourmet level' but did the job, was okay.

high quality food, delicious, fast & friendly service. à la carte is quite expensive but the special offers during lunch time (10.30-14.00) have a really nice price. I can only recommend this place for having a really good lunch.

Thank Sophie K
