I loved this place

Viking restaurant, although apparently there is no such thing as a Finnish Viking? Delightful slightly naff interior with lots of wood and skins. Mixed meat and fish starter (including ducks hearts and horse) was excellent. They had their own brewed beer that was quite strong but tasteless... read more

I walked through -20 (Celsius) for half a mile and back to get to this place. Soooo worth it. Best beef stew of my whole life. The other dishes also looked good. Atmosphere was great, lots of theme without being too campy. Dessert was tiny, but ok, beer was decent, but the stew was friggin awesome.

This place is great! A really fun Viking themed restaurant for a group! Ask for the Viking helmets to enhance your enjoyment. Food was also very good (very good reindeer tenderloin on the game sword!) and so was the Harold beer! (Side note, best bathrooms we visited in Finland)

An interesting experience and peculiar foods like wild boar available. Not at the cheapest range but if you are looking for an exceptional feel to your dining place, this might be it.

This restaurant is really authentic with a lot of Nordic/Scandinavian dishes. Very original. I had such a good time there and I will definitely go back there to taste the huge choice of meals.

Viikinkiravintola Harald interesting décor helps creating a unique ambiance. We figure out that if you order a set menu, the savings are less than 1Euro, so we order a la carte. My colleagues ordered the salmon, which was excellent. I had the beef stew, which was okay, but I wished I’d opted for something else. The cep and chantrelle soup... More

They have a very nice atmosphere there. Service was cheerful and helpful. Prices about the same than other restaurants in area. They have their own beer that I recommend. Portion was very nice and meal itself very good.

The following two evenings we ate somewhere else and then for the rest 5 we ate only here. Wonderful, easpecially wild animals meat. Everything we tried... More

On my own in Tamper, I wanted an authentic Finish meal, and I think this might come as close as you'll get with great atmosphere and superb service thrown in for good measure. Highly recommended.
