This is a very odd restaurant but I liked it. The atmosphere and interior brings you back to the Viking-age and you get a good feeling when entering the restaurant. The menu reflects the Viking-era as well with a lot of odd dishes and you could find tar in very many of them. The drinks and food... read 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.

We visited Harald with a group of six. We shared sword and shield meals with our group. The service was excellent again. Food has so many different flavours with differrent sauces and meats. I highly recommend to try. Children's menu also available.

Had a nice meal here yesterday. It is a Viking themed restaurant, the concept is good but tatty in a few places. The staff were excellent and plenty of them, so loads of attention.the menu covered most bases as with all food and drink in Finland it was expensive. The food was well cooked and presented. Worth the experience but... More

Food was very good. Me and my spouse ate meal for two. Lamb, wild boar and some beef with veges, two different potatoes and three sauces. Only negative thing was the soundtrack that played in the background. It was pretty annoying viking music :D

One of the expensive restaurants in Tampere but justifiable because of the exotic meals that they have (as mentioned already, they have for instance bear salami, reindeer etc.) We came here for a Christmas get together. The set meal for each person can cost 50 euros or more. Drinks are excluded. It's nice to come here with a group but... More

Enjoyed our Viking dinner thoroughly. The portions are generous and the meat is great quality and cooked to perfection. Yes, it's a bit corny with the faux-viking attires and stuff but it's just a bit of fun and it creates a great atmosphere. Not exactly cheap, but for the quality the prices are justified.

Good restaurant for middle class and above, with a special twist on athmosphere and service. Been there couple of times and the food has always been very good. Theme of the restaurant is vikingish, in good and the bad. I find it funny and cosy, but the viking service can be cornish sometimes, depending on who happens to be your... More

I went there twice on two different occasions, the food is good (but not great) and they don't have almost any plate for tourist, I ate the sword with lots of meat (boar, duck, reindeer and deer) but some other tourists (my sister included) didn't want to eat any of that, and most of the cow dishes are made with...

The food was very nice and flavorful. The presentation was fun. We may have been limited in menu selection due to the larger number of people in our group, but the chicken breast we got was well cooked, and the accompanying mushroom soup was excellent.
