Restaurant for upper

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... read 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.

Our host wanted to entertain us, so he brought us here. If you don't like a theatrical setting and a viking theme, then this will not be for you! The food was surprisingly good. We all had some grog, an appetizer platter featuring fresh fish, reindeer and the like, and then more of the same for our mains. Service was... More

Great experience when wanting to feel Viking era dining. Service is average (it's Finland) but the food is good and very plentiful. Dont order too much, you will be stuffed :) Worth to visit!

I have eaten in this restaurant from the beginning. Anything you can find from their menu is good. The Vikings theme is through. Very good to spend time eating. In the very centre.

In England we have a phrase "Naff" which can't be directly translated but is on the lines of Kitsch, tacky or laughable. This restaurant I feel pushes these limits but does it in a fun way. Since there were no Finnish Vikings I am sure that this was the intention of who's ever brainchild this was. The food is fantastic... More
