Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Food, wine and beers were excellent. They have many unique dishes and all i have tried have been brilliant. Customer service is on point. Totally worth the price.

Though it looks a bit tacky and "touristy", the atmosphere is really nice. The menu is very creative and the food was delicious, even too much to manage, and was served surprisingly quickly. The staff was ok. The prices quite high, but like everywhere in...Finland, apparently.More

Harald, central behind the Hotel Verso, claims a viking, traditional ambience, but that seems to apply more to the furnishings than to the food. Friendly service, apologetic because they close early. We arrived at 20h30. Down winding steps into a cellar location.

While the atmosphere is nice and the service is friendly, unfortunately the food is pretty average and nothing special, especially when it comes to the balance between the price and the value.

We’ve been here multiple times and it never disappoints us regarding the food. Food is very tasty! But recent times when I have went there with my boyfriend who doesn’t speak finnish, it feels like waitresses are very scared to speak English to us. One...waitress especially looked so scared! It was almost a bit hilarious. It’s a bit strange experience to my boyfriend because I can imagine no one wants to be treated differently.More

Great place with very good food and service. Affordable prices. Takes a bit of time to get the food, but it's worth it.

Had a very pleasant business dinner in that restaurant. The place is kind of a tribute to the Vikings and food, drinks as well as overall styling are adapted to this motto. We had the Odin sword to share which was plenty of food at...superb quality. Highly recommended at an up-market price level, even for Finland standards.More

Real and delicious old-time food. The place has its own unique atmosphere with the Viking decorations. If you are looking for a unique experience and food, you must try this.

I was taken to this restaurant as part of a business trip. At first when I heard it was a theme-restaurant my heart sank. However, I could not have been more impressed. The atmosphere was fun and the food was truly amazing. The service was...friendly and timely. It was a thoroughly fantastic meal and can not recommend it highly enough.More

This a a mock viking restaurant - but never mind; the steaks are good. There are also some fish dishes, and vegetarian options on the list, but mostly it is about steaks. Two guys from our party were late, and the kitchen closes early at...10 pm. But the very friendly waitress organized everything smoothly, and everyone was happy.More

I came here for a lunch and it was awesome. There was four different choices and I ordered a steak. In the lunch menu there's a salad buffet with bread included. I love the decore in the restaurant and the food was delicious, steak melted...in the mouth. After the meal also coffee or tea is included and we ordered a chocolate cake as dessert, which was also very tasty.More
