Viking offers a wide set of (not so common) traditional meals, which could be named as scandinavian but also national courses. They are big or even huge, tastes good and you can order many kind of combinations, that's also interesting. Visited here first time so many years ago, that didn't remember how special this was. Can be recommended.

Harald is in Tampere and I think in other cities too nice viking restaurant with food that suits to this theme. Staff is really friebndly and I think they have had some training for their role as it feels like that they are from another century. One time I have had bad experience and it was that my fathers stake... More

The decor and theme is very viking. More so than real, but just go with the flow and have fun. The house honey wheat beer was fantastic. Our group shared a 3 shields dinner, which included moose sausage, goose leg, duck heart, various fish, veal, beef tenderloin, reindeer, horse, various potatoes and breads and pate.

Very nice restaurant with typical Viking style. Harold Beer with honey and rendear were delicious as well the mushroom soup. We were there with colleagues and enjoyed the food. Price is for my feeling compared with Holland high but couldn't compare with other restaurants. Personal is friendly so I can recommend this if you go with a group.

Absolutely love this restaurant although it is quite expensive. A treat for a special occasion though. The food is unusual but excellent, the atmosphere is fantastic, and it is also family friendly. Every time I visit Tampere I just have to visit this restaurant.

This restaurant was noisy, drinks were expensive and service was slow. I'll be clear though there were tons of groups that seemed to be having a lot of fun. Just not for me.

Not so traditional Finnish food, but otherwise enjoyable dishes. Specially tasteing plates (kilpi) are good ones to try different foods and small bites. Also overcooked meats are juicy... Tar schnps and these kind of thing amuse foreign visitors
