On Saturday they offer a menu that comes with a great salad bar. Is better to make reservations before you go

Saw this one while going through restaurant options in Kuopio. Sounded interesting and decided to give it a try. Really nice restaurant with great viking theme. Service was friendly and menu had several different options with true viking style names. Restaurant offers very tasty food with Finnish incredients and portions are huge! Not the cheapest option but definitely worth visiting!... More

Bit pricey, but very good, atmosphere is awesome inside. Reindeer, elk and duck on the same platter stuck on a knife. Located around from the square.

I had fun in this place. If you are in the mood for meat and dress up then this is the place. Seriously, you don't have to dress up (the staff do).The meat dishes are good and there are good beers to go with it. Good for large groups out for a fun evening. Probably not great if you want... More

Visited Harald with family. First impressions included noting the decorations and staff clothing, which added a nice spice to the overall atmosphere. We had mushroom soup and some meat set served in a sword. The soup was considered very tasty, and the swordy thing, consisting of reindeer (very, very good), bird, pork and sausage was also good. All in all,... More

I have to admit been slow to find this place attractive here in Kuopio. Now I have to say Viking Restaurant Harald has found its niche. The food they serve is good or even very good, pure and it has a certain spice from Viking time. This time, few days ago, I took vegetarian dish and it was fried beetroot-buckwheat... More

Had a great viking age dinner with friends in a in viking age styled restaurant only a few steps from the market square. The food tasted wonderful and it was nicely set on the plate. The portions were quite large. The atmosphare was good as well as the service.

Awesome Viking food. A bit expansive compared to France or Germany but really worth it! Staff was helpful in helping me decide as well as general tourist attraction and misc. info

I have mixed feelings about this place. About three years ago I banned this place from me since I had some bad lunches here. Now I decided to give them another chance and boy was it worth it. Lunch has 3 items on the menu costing between 8 and 10 euros and 2 items for more luxurious items (for example... More
