This is a restaurant built up aroand the Viking theme. This is visble everywhere in the decoration with stuffed birds and animals, hunting trophys etc. The theme continues in the menu. The food is good but not very special and unfortunately not really worth the fine dining price.

An outstanding meal with a great selection any carnivore would love. Food prices slightly more expensive than other local restaurants but worth every penny (or should I say Cent) Must try the crab soup and own branded beer which has a nice touch of honey.

Want to have good food and a Viking experience? Go to Harald! The food is good and pretty cheap, and everything is Viking style: the food, the decoration,the staff... Here you can even taste some wild game meat that Finnish people eat a lot!

Efficient service. Big enough meat dishes and portions. Interesting menu with viking feel and touch. Wooden decoration and relaxing folk music. Harald is popular viking theme restaurant. Good special beers.

Spent one night in Turku and wanted to have something local. I'm not sure how close the food really is to what a Viking would have eaten, but I can assure it was very tasty.... I had the lamb stew and my colleague had the Reindeer both of which where absolutely delicious. As soon of the other comment the service... More

What could have been a good evening was frustrated by the very slow service experienced by our whole group. The food was ok when it arrived but it was a long evening waiting. Maybe they have kitchen limitations but I think they could have done better

Fantastic food with good portion size and excellent service. Nice ambience with touches of authenticity to add to the overall theme. Staff very attentive but didn't hover and not intrusive.

We went in Viikinkiravontola Harald during our permanence in Turku. It was monday, so there were not many peple. Every table is well separated from the others, so we consumed the meal intimately. The reastaurant forniture is wooden, tipically of the viking era, decirated with furs, dakkar models, shields and much more objects. Staff is very gentle and careful. The... More

Description
Viking Restaurant Harald. Located right in the heart of the city centre, Viking Restaurant Harald serves up the very finest the forest and waters have to offer - just like in the days of the ancient Northern adventurers. The menu has meat and fish in its many forms, but not even the Vikings would have been to make their epic journeys without a healthy dose of vegetables, not to mention a mouthwatering dessert.Aurakatu 3 20100 Turku. Opening hours mon-thu 11-24, fri 11-01 sat 12-01, sun 15-22
