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

If all restarants in the world should treat their customers with same frienliness as they do here, we all would be like kings and queens! Excellent, we´ll see again soon!

Visited with some colleagues after work, but was a little disappointed. The food was ok-ish but overpriced and the service was pretty average. The only good point was the locally brewed beer which was delicious.

Visited with the family and enjoyed about friendly service, good food and atmosphere. The dishes were tasty and versatile, there were good options for everyone to choose from. If you want to try Finnish specialities, this is a good place for it, portion sizes are quite big though.

A really great atmosphere, combined with really great food make this my favorite restaurant in Tampere (I have been 3 times now for work). I had the Chicken and Goats Cheese which was truly excellent, and my colleague had the reindeer soup and fish plate, that he really enjoyed. Service wasn't the best for a quiet restaurant, but the food... More

The restaurant was like an amusement park and all of us had dinner with Viking hats. We ordered assortment of Viking food and the raindeer's meat was my favorite but I could not eat bear' s meat. Good to visit!!

I doubt. In Finland we call the neck of the lamb toasted in an oven over night as "särä". When it is made with a compassion to make good food, it tastes like this did. Just excellent! Just as the service over all in Harald. You must see the menu, feel the athmosphere from the Viking times and let the... More

We were celebrating with a group and had a group menu with the buffet table for starters. Some of the starters were excellent, like the moose salami, but some were quite average. The main food was ok, but the steak surprisingly not so tasty. The dessert was good, very tasty chocolade tart with marshmallows and nuts on top, yum! But... More
