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.

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".

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.
