True, viking atmosphere and yummy menu are here but all in all, don't legitimate high prices I'd rather spend on other eateries.

Really nice interior, good food, friendly staff. Little bit expensive and not that big portions but all 3 courses were really tasty.

Very good food in an old viking atmosphere. Good "restaurant brand" beer. Good service. A little on the pricey side, but well worth a visit.

It was a good luck that we found such finnish restaurant during the first 15 minutes in Turku. Good, viking's atmosphere and style, well and tasty dishes, good schnaps and one bitter drop; a bit too expensive, f.e. small portion of lamb stew for 28 euro...

The restaurant was really medieval, it was quite impressive. I think I had too high expectations about the food, it wasn't that good. It actually tasted medieval. But it was a nice experience even if the food wasn't that great according to me!

Close to the main square, a great place to try reindeer, deer, lamb, beef, fish prepared after a viking concept, but with great combination with herbs and berries.

I have been eating here dozen of times and after every visit except one I have been disappointed because this place always leaves me hungry. It is very pathethic: this should be a Viking restaurant but for example Asian restaurants like Nepalese and... More

Viikinkiravintola means Viking restaurant in Finish - as I learned from my Finn colleagues. The most interesting about this restaurant is not the decoration (wooden tables and chairs, helmets with horns, beer mugs) - it is the food. I enjoyed eating sausages made out of bear meat and drinking tar beer - not for every taste. Visiting Harald is a... More
