This place is DEFINITELY over-sold. We though it might be fun to do a little tourist-trash expedition one night and take in some 'singing vikings and valkyries' alongside traditional Icelandic grub. Upon arrival we were sat right round the back corner of the restaurant and told we could sit any closer as there was a tour group. This group then... More

We visited during the international viking festival and the atmosphere inside was buzzing! I opted for hot chocolate and a portion of waffles, both of which were good. Tables to either side of us had gone for the burgers which looked really tasty!

This restaurant is huge with two levels. Though I’m not an expert with Viking history, the decoration and design gives this restaurant a Viking feel. The cutlery had an old-aged design to them as well. I came here specifically for the fish soup and was disappointed. It was too salty and bitter. I expected more from this place since the... More

Two adults and two tweens for dinner. Very interesting interior with lots of Viking atmosphere. Food was pricey, but there was free entertainment - a traveling Viking minstrel. The Viking sampler appetizer plate looked intriguing, but was nothing special and expensive. Food was good, but service was slow. There was a large group in another room getting all the attention....

Fantastic atmosphere and decor, loved the Viking theme. The staff were very friendly and the service was good. We had the fish and chips, tagliatelle pasta with garlic roasted lobster tails and vegetables in cream sauce, Icelandic skyr with blueberry sauce and sorbs and Hot applepie with ice cream and whipped cream, all was delicious. There is a menu on... More
