Very nice option for a lunch!

I have to admit been slow to find this place attractive here in Kuopio. Now I have to say Viking Restaurant Harald has found its niche. The food they serve is good or even very good, pure and it has a certain spice from Viking time. This time, few days ago, I took vegetarian dish and it was fried... read more

Went for a dinner here less two weeks ago. Had been here before, and it was ok also in the past but this time was magnificent! I would say that food was best in town, thumbs up!

Had a great viking age dinner with friends in a in viking age styled restaurant only a few steps from the market square. The food tasted wonderful and it was nicely set on the plate. The portions were quite large. The atmosphare was good as well as the service.

Awesome Viking food. A bit expansive compared to France or Germany but really worth it! Staff was helpful in helping me decide as well as general tourist attraction and misc. info

I have mixed feelings about this place. About three years ago I banned this place from me since I had some bad lunches here. Now I decided to give them another chance and boy was it worth it. Lunch has 3 items on the menu costing between 8 and 10 euros and 2 items for more luxurious items (for example... More

Good restaurant in Kuopio, average value for money. Some dishes were great, some not. If you are in a hurry, maybe a place to eat.

I had lunch here with a group of friends after a morning of sightseeing. The food was really nice, portions were large and the décor is interesting. Very novel idea for a restaurant! I would definitely recommend this place to others visiting Kuopio and will go back there next time.

Visited several times and it just simply always brilliant. I am writing this as a citizen of Kuopio and assure you that portions are not only good, but very very generous at size. They also have lunch offers during weekdays which means slightly cheaper meals. And my oh my what a lamb dish we had there today. Soft, juicy and... More

If you can`t decide, where to go, choose Harald. The food is always good (and suprising somehow), staff is nice and prices are fair.

Visited with friends. Interior certainly resmbles our understanding of Viking style and era. Menu has decent selection of starters, main courses and desserts. Also set menus available. The big issue seemed to be various shields - a lot of food on a wooden plate - so You'll get a little bit of everyting. Out company tried both options - main... More
