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.

Great for special occasions. The whole restaurant takes you back to the Viking times :D Interior has been designed with the era in mind and also the waitering staff is dressed in "viking style". The plastic helmets reserved for the customers are a bit over the top, but fun if you are there with big group and want some funny... More

Yeah yeah, there wasnt too many vikings in Finland - but how many places does have a dubliner bar, even there is no irish people there.... Cool decor, wooden viking theme. Food was great, and very tasty. Service normal, nothing to complain about. Not cheapest place - but food makes up for it.

Usual for this region mix of sweet and sour in a meals. Service is pretty good. Location is also good. Spent too much but didn't feel full enough.

Located in the very heart of Kuopio by the market place. A little bit out of ordinary restaurant with viking theme.

Portions are big so you can fill your stomach, but there's not much flavour. Waiters aren't very observing. Or they cannot see properly in the dim light? Viking restaurant in Kuopio, Finland? Why? Vikings were Scandinavian. Finland isn't. You can try this once but I cannot imagine going there often.
