Carpaccio has nothing to do with carpaccio, salmons taste was old. Compared to the price cannot be recommended

I always try to go to a Viking restaurant Harald, if there one in the town I visit. I have so far visited one in Lahti, Turku, Oulu and now in Kuopio. I like their style of restaurants. This time I had a lamb dish,...which was rather delicious. Friendly staff and cozy interior.More

Anniversary dinner - preordered - too much potatoes and too little meet. Friendly service except the waitress who did not manage to open the wine bottle. She manage to break the cork on 2 and she touched the winebottle with her hands and her fingers...were inside the bottleMore

The food was very tasty. Food serving was good. The desserts were a different and interesting combination. Safety distances and hygiene were ok.

My husband and I had lunch at this restaurant during our recent stay in Kuopio. As we wanted a light lunch, we just ordered salads and starters. Everything was good but the dips that came with the "starter bread" were excellent and one, in particular,...was outstanding.More

Scandinavian / Finnish style food with some surprising twists (USA / Russia) every now and then. I've been quite a frequent visitor since 2012, a couple times a week for years now. Food and service was good even before, but later years even topped the...quality time and time again. Lunch includes main course, salad buffet and the soup of the day. Salad buffet can be usually compared to a la carte quality. With the usual vegetables always available you are most likely to find some more filling articles such as cold fish and root vegetable starter foods, potatoe salads, sauces etc. Soups are varying from smooth vegetable soups to more rustique meat and fish soups. Sometimes there's some game - boar, elk or deer - in the foods. At the lunchtime! There's two cheaper main courses available, and a bit pricier one if you really want to treat yourself. Main courses are brought to the table always on time and with a smile. Portions are well-sized even for a bigger guy. If you still have your sweet-tooth aching after all the main course goodness, you can treat yourself with some cookies with coffee or tea. Thursdays it's pancake time. A la carte has some real scandinavian adventures for your taste-buds. Inventive dishes with not so usual flavours have been top notch every time we've had them. I recommend the most full menü if you are to have one. You don't want to miss any of these delicious and interesting treats and foods. I could not recommend this more heartily. Scandinavian quality food with reasonable prices right at the center of my beloved home town.More

Are here on a business trip the restaurant was quiet by the food, drinks and service was good. The Vikings theme works well and the set menus were great. Thanks

We ate lunch in Harald and it wasn’t that good at all. I had veggie lunch with peasoup. There wasnt much variation for vegetables from buffet table and taste was very plain. Peasoup was ok but canned peasoup is much better. We didn’t touch dessert...- coffee, tea and old stiff-looking pancakes. Viking theme is interesting and service is polite, but overall not place worth going twice.More

Ate here with a couple of colleagues on a recent business trip. Food and beer was excellent and highly recommended, as well as great service. Would definitely visit again when back in town!
