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

We chose this restaurant with some work friends for its special viking theme. The service was excellent and fast. We were given great recommendations for drinks and for food, and all questions were answered and any special requests about the food were fulfilled. The food was very good and there was a lot of it! The decor in the restaurant is viking-style as are the costumes that the staff wears. It might not be to everyone's liking, but we enjoyed it very much, and will come back again.

This is the sort of restaurant that you would go to for a fun night out with a few friends. Maybe a works do or something. The menus have gimmicky names such as Smoked Beef from the Bearslayers court etc. The food is a pretty good standard for a chain too! Good priced beer and wine too. The staff at the Oulu branch were pretty good and very helpful. We had a large sitting and a long table of about 16 persons. What impressed me the most was how well they organised separate bills for everyone. Restaurants normally don't care who's paying what and leave you to sort out your own logistics with a one bill covers all. They managed to give us all separate bills even though some of the family groups were sitting apart. All in all a fun night out! Don't get me started on the Helsinki Branch though!

Some would call the viking-style decor as kitsch, but actually I liked it. A lot of effort and wood was used to make the restaurant look attractive. The restaurant was tightly packed with tables but with good harmony the staff and all customers slalomed between them. Our dinner offered, however, nothing fancy, only ordinary dinner meal. Unbelievable that a chocolate dessert contains hazelnuts bearing in mind how many customers are allergic to them! Perhaps this restaurant is most worth of visiting during lunch time!?

I have had lunch here about 10 times and it has been delicious every time. At lunch time prices are between 9 and 20 euros. Items at salad table are fresh and there is plenty of different things to choose from.

I`ll have to try late night dinner in the near future.

The service was very friendly and very fast - maybe even too fast ;-) - but the waiters hadn't hurry to anywhere. They had time to discuss and give recommendations.

The food was delicious - well done and tastes good.
