This restaurant is in a beautiful house and really nice inside. The cafe offered different pieces of cake and sandwiches, but also a soup lunch.

We had a dinner with family in the street level restaurant. The menu was quite interesting - although the old experiences of real fine french style small portions was in the back of our heads. Seems that this is now thing of the past - sizes of the portions are now just right. Service was very friendly but lacked a... More

We are there with tree people, everything what we have was amazing. At the end we share a Nutella pizza, it was to much for three man after a main course.

I had the deep fried sweet potato wedges, the risotto of the day, Napue g&t and a sweet glass of Amarone, all excellent. Two waiters, one of them an excellent professional. To be recommended. Nice ambience. Well worth the cost.

My meal here was OK, but sounded more promising than it ended up tasting. The local specialties tasting platter with salmon, pork belly, mushrooms, reindeer and cheese was nicely presented, but none of it tased really fantastic. I had rissotto with wild mushrooms for main course, and again - middle-of-the-road quality, even though they claim rissotto to be a specialty.... More

We were with a rather large group and had excellent 3-course dinner in this restaurant. The service was very friendly, and they were ready to advise and answer our questions on the menu. The food was very good, and the restaurant has a nice interior - the open kitchen allows you to see the work going on there.

As far as I know different pizzas than any other place in Oulu: topping selection, dough, texture. Pizzas are very good baked and tasty. Size is maybe a little small compared to other pizza places, but pizza here is surprisingly fulfilling (maybe due to homemade sourdough?). Ok wine selection. The place is cozy and quite roomy.

The restaurant Puistola is a fantastic place with nice atmosphere and very good cooking. The soup and salads were fine, pasta very tasty, medium minus steak perfect and desserts - just fantastic. You can also taste nice wines there. If you visit Oulu, Puistola is certainly a place worth visiting!
