Description: Viking Restaurant Harald. Located right in the heart of the city centre, Viking Restaurant Harald serves up the very finest the forest and waters have to offer - just like in the days of the ancient Northern adventurers. The menu has meat and fish in its many forms, but not even the Vikings would have been to make their epic journeys without a healthy dose of vegetables, not to mention a mouthwatering

We were here with 9 people for business dinner. Service was very friendly. Food was quite ok, and the restaurant managed our rapid change of schedule very well (had to keep two dishes warm for almost half an hour due to unexpected event). Restaurants own honey flavoured beer was told to be nice and our group did like it. Really... More

About the theme everyone has written before. The menu is amuzing to read, as every meal has a story. Regarding the food, I especially enjoyed the reindeer. I recommended it to several friends, they visited this place later, and all said it was really great. We all tried reindeer meat in other places earlier, but it was not good. But... More

The restaurant is decorated with viking theme, all the waiters wear traditional viking clothes, they even have the viking helmets if customers wanna try on and take some photos. We were seated almost immediately after we arrived because we made reservations in advance. You can make reservations 2 days in advance and they will send you a confirmation email the... More

This was my second visit to Harald and most probably the last one. The first one was a dinner with friends and kids. The service was pretty good, but the food was between awful and tasteless. I thought that the chef had a bad day, but mu second visit for a lunch confirmed that they are using convenience food. And... More

On a business trip in Oulu I was looking for something different ... And I found it ! It is difficult to figure out what you'll eat but my selection was good. Large portion indeed, I wonder how to eat a 3 plates menu !! You should try the home bier too :-) not a place to go everyday but... More

Great service and not too expensive (for Finland). My salmon was a bit dry but the rest was great and it included a salad bar and unlimited coffee for €10 at lunch time. Lovely waiter who explained everything to us and was very helpful I hear dinner is much more expensive though.........

The portions are large, service fast and nice. The food is quite average I would say. I'd describe this being a place for guys who want to out for a dinner.

Food is done mostly via traditional manner. Also side orders are more traditional and normally portions are rather large. Flavors are also quite good. I had veal and only challenge was that actual beef (medium) was bit chewy. My wife had excellent reindeer.

Harald is small restaurant chain and this was 3rd different their restaurant I've visited. Central location, step in and go stairs down. Interior and waiter's costume is "vikingish", like their name and business idea hints. Complimentary rye bread for starters is nice surprise. Food was real tasty like always, service was friendly and quite fast, Good Place to have business... More

I like to say about food, it is made with different style than other Oulu restaurants. Nicely decorated, altough a little bit dark place for my taste. Not a cheap place, take your time in here.
