Great food, nice atmosphere, good service and nice beer selection with Haralds own tasty beer too. Viking helmets were a fun addition to the theme. Rotten shark of the "Test of the Viking" didn't smell very good.

Great food! I have eaten here twice and have enjoyed it each time. Desserts are something to save room for at the end of the meal.

Although the food and, should I say, scenery was very good, what really stood out was the outstanding service. In this line of work, attitude is everything! We will return.

Viking theme restaurant in the middle of the city. If you go there as a group, order different shields from the menu so everyone can have a taste of everything. I have never left Haralds feeling hungry. Exellent food, something to drink for everyone. Remember to ask for viking helmets to wear. It is not a fast food restaurant, so... More

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. Desserts were also delicious and... More
