Surprisingly for a Sunday night during the holiday season the place was almost empty. The service was the best part. The decor was worth looking at. The themed menu spoke of exotic dishes which, on arrival, did little to inspire. It seemed pricey for what it was. The restaurant would not be high on my list of places to visit again.

Viking theme works ok if a bit "tourist" - but I was a tourist and it made a change!

Food is different, nice presentation, friendly service.

Go back? Yes

Delicious food, excellent service, what more would you want, oh yeah, good value food. Visited them this evening and was really impressed. Loved the food, the service with a decent dollop of humour and attitude, very welcoming environment.

I would have no problem recommending this place to anyone visiting Lahti, or further afield for that matter, it's worth the trip.

To start you need to know that the food in Finland isn´t special in comparising to f.e. Italy or Spain. In Finland you eat meat or fish on regular bases and that's it.

This restaurant makes your dinner while you really feel like a viking. We also were with a great group of international people so we had a great experience at the restaurant.
Be aware!! The local people really like products made out of teer. They call it 'terva' and you can get it in a lot of ways as a shot or also as icecream. I couldn't get used to it and I'll never forget the face of my collegue thinking he was going to eat vanilla ice is and he found out it was 'terva'.......

it is a Viking theme restaurant, but a bit tacky. Food is ok, but not great. Average. Friendly service.
