Restaurant Matala in Oulu is a different place than practically all reviews below are about, as they've been written about restaurant Manala in Helsinki! Nervertheless, Matala in Oulu has since closed its doors and is nowadays a gastropub Toripolliisi.

Manala is an important part of the history of nightlife in Helsinki. The pizza is worth tasting and if you want to go to the places all locals know, this is a place to visit.
